    Default Could a 2.0T owner have a look at a hose for me please....

    This one....



    If you stand at the front of the car and look into the bonnet just behind the two cooing fans on the radiator/intercooler assembly, look straight down towards the ground and you'll see it - it's fairly low down.

    I noticed on mine that it looks like it's got the beginnings of the hose splitting and it looks to me like the hose should be butted up against that little lip on the metal pipe.

    Could somebody confirm please. If it's on it's way out and is meant to be butted up to the lip, I think I'll just buy a new one and stick it on.

    You can see the U cutout on mine, by the looks of it the pipe should be up against the lip.

    Cheers m8 - maybe I just need to slacken it off a bit and butt it up again to the lip bit. I'll try that first before I go off replacing anything. I haven't had any problem, just happened to spot it as I was having a nose in the engine bay. I'll do it one day in the daylight!

    When I read that first I imagine you had found pigeons nesting under there

    There is a black line there, not sure if it's for lining the 'U' up to.

    I nipped out, quickly jacked the car up to get access to the hose/jubilee clip and slackened it, repositioned it and tightened it back up......




    ...is that what yours looks like. Wasn't obvious from the pic but looked like it is.

    EDIT: Looks like your clip is a bit further away from the 'U' - probably doesn't really matter.
