Warning Air con pipe wear - 2.4

While doing my oil change this morning, i've noticed quite a bit of wear on the air con pipe that goes across the engine. On inspection, it is clear the engine cover has been rubbing it and will eventually rub through the pipe if left long enough

Maybe its just mine, but worth all you 2.4 overs lifting the cover to check its not happening to yours too.

Yes unfortunately that's an old problem.

You need to do a bit of bending / re shaping of the bracket at the front, basically give it a good push down.

Just take a file/ snips/ dremel to the engine cover.

If anyone out there have any of my old cars, its already done, as you could see the scuffing after a few months.
