So will the 1.8t pancake pipe fit on the pd130 then? along with the rubber hoses needed?It says its for a 1.8t as it does not have the silly connectors that are on the diesel. I have just finished replacing all of the original pipework on mine including the turborevs smic and the 1.8t pancake pipe, well worth doing
I always made sure that the clip is in properly,it just finds a way of poping off all the time.Its the second time now ive had to put the clips back on.Is the spring clip tabs,suposed to go around the two tabs? i can only manage to get it round one of them,but its still tight.The clip may not be sat correctly if it was fine before.
I took the pipes of the cooler, and every time I put my foot down after they popped off.
Make sure that you have pushed the two pipes together as hard as you can, then make sure at the same time, that the spring clip is sat correctly and pushed down as far as it will go. An inspection mirror is handy for checking the clip is sat correctly all the way round.
I had a huge boost and oil leak at the EGR intake due to a worn clamp, however an EGR delete pipe, jubilee clip and some butchering of the boost pipe now means its lovely and sealed tight. Much better drive.
If you want it, I have a spare oem pipe section to connect the top of the intercooler to the black plastic pipe that runs along the side of the engine. PM me for pics/details if interested, could part with it for a small donation.
