    Unhappy intercooler hose price cdti150.

    after doing a routine check of oil on my dipstick i noticed a split on the intercooler hose coming from under the jubilee clip,went to the dealer to get a new one and was was gutted when they told me the price £126.50.the part i need is only about 8inch long which connects to a piece of steel pipe then another hose connects to that,i only need the hose that is split but you have to buy all three parts and assemble yourself.fitting isnt a problem but i think its a con how u have to buy all three bits when only one is at fault.
    the parts im talking about are right infront of the dipstick slightly to the left.
    parts ordered and should be in on wed

    surley a piece of silicon hose cut to the right size would have been sufficient or maybe visit a scrap yard and replace for a second hand jobbie
