my brief has been in the(non dealer) garage since monday getting some repairs, including the turbo hose which developed a pinhole rubbing on the gearbox while under boost. i have seen previous threads mentioning this problem but i need to find a replacement somewhere, as my garage can only source it from A R and it is on back order(or something) and a date cant be set on a new part being delivered. if any one can give me any info, that would be much appreciated.cheers;)

Sympathise fully - mine went in last Friday for the same thing. Fortunately my local AR dealer must have a hotline to God and had one in stock waiting for someone else who'd delayed the fitting. In, diagnosed, fitted, car cleaned and out again in under 2 hours.

Who says service is dead.

Oggy,

How did you know you had a problem - was it smoking? In fact do you get any black smoke as I get heaps.
