Could a DIY mechanic do it? Any how too's and how can I tell if it's definitely the issue? It's late here but had a quick look under bonnet and hose that comes off turbo has black crud over it and the turbo housing so I'll remove clean and refit tightly and see if it helpsIt’s a tricky job. About 350 from memory. Shouldn’t happen again.. we use a better bolt so never seen it reoccur.
Other side I presume same location albeit on driver side and going into intercooler? Can you see it from above? I haven't access to a ramp etcIf that is split that’s certainly the first thing to change. Check other side also as that’s the more common one to split.
Yes. It’s normally red. Just have a feel with your hand to see if you can find a split or if the hose is excessively softenedOther side I presume same location albeit on driver side and going into intercooler? Can you see it from above? I haven't access to a ramp etc

I see it mate and there's a big cruddy oily patch on that so maybe leaking I'll have it up on ramps Wednesday evening and take them off and have a good look before ordering any parts etc fingers crossed it's this and not that bolt issue thank you for all your help so far, I'll update you once I see them offYes.

INJECTOR BIT IS OUT OF DATE BUT MUCH OF THE REST IS OK LAYOUT WISE
Thanks Tony yes I will do but won't be till Wednesday night was it the red intercooler pipe on drivers side or black one on passenger side leaking on yours?Hi had exact same code last week. It was the intercooler pipe as shown earlier. Mb specialist did a smoke test and it showed up straight away. Cost was about £180 using genuine mb replacement pipe including star diagnosis, smoke test and new pipe. Took them about 30 mins to replace once confirmed.. let us know how you get on
