Turbo intake hose split

Postby cuz427 » Wed Jul 03, 2013 11:05 am

Warning to everyone that owns a diesel, we have had issues with "Turbo lag" (late 2012 model), turns out to be a split intake hose on the turbo. The split was underneath the hose, we were told to continue driving, service centre told us it was before the air cleaner! so when we got it home we checked and on inspection we found it was actually the intake hose at the turbo. Please other owner check this, as it could lead to other serious issues. We were told that there are lots of intake hoses on back order so we are not the only ones with this problem.

Can anyone please explain to me why a dealer would say a hose is prior to the air filter & how a turbo suction/intake hose can cause a lag??
the problem that happens with most machines is the loose nut connecting the steering to the seat

It could be after the AFM, so it might be causing a fuelling issue.... Thinking out loud though I don't know if its a MAP setup though... I'll look at mine tomorrow.

I had the same problem changed the air filter as I lifted the box cover the rubber hose broke off the turbo inlet. Common fault bad Rubber. The film of oil that Buids up near the intake of the turbo does not help either. I recommend to change the hose every 30k to reduce the risk of it splitting.

I had this problem with my X200 auto.
Big lag then after the 15000km service i drove out the dealers and just lost all power.
I opened the bonnet and could see the split in the hose between the Air cleaner and the Turbo/manifold.
Dealer said they could replace it in 2 -3 weeks when it arrives from China !!!!!!!
After much foot stamping and dummy spitting they took one off a stock vehicle and fitted it.

WOW !!!!!

What a different vehicle !

Seriously, anyone with a lag problem check the intake hose and if split replace.

Only problem now is TCS light on and no Cruise control :-(

Can anyone tell me the cost of these hoses? I wouldn't mind stockpiling a couple of these just for when the inevitable happens.

I'm considering getting a new hose made up by a "turbo" parts supplier from a mixture of the high strength silicon hoses and piping. Wont have to stress about blowing a hose 500km from the nearest civilization then.
