Hi,

Has anyone done this, and can advise on how easy a job it is or has anyone come across any videos online? I am being quoted £400 for MB to change it (which sounds extortionate). Also, is it just an air pipe or does it contain oil, the technician said mine is leaking oil...? I would be comfortable changing an air hose, less so with draining oil systems etc.

Finally, can anyone recommend where I can get a cheap genuine part - I have tried eBay but they only have used parts.

Thanks in advance

It may contain a bit of oil that has been sucked through the system but at the end of the day it is an air pipe, not an oil-carrying pipe.

Looking at the ones on my C, they seem easily accessible if you remove the undertray. The key with boost pipes is making sure each end is tightly screwed on. :eek:
