Replacing the Turbo Charger Ventilation Tube

Recommended Posts

Hey all,  


Has anyone replaced the turbo vent line from the 5-8 side? I am chasing some boost and oil consumption issues and and found that line broken.  I am concerned it will require some surgery to get to. Is it possible to get to without removing much? It looks like its tight against the turbo and I am unsure I'll be able to release the connector or install the new one with out dropping the turbo. 


Thanks for any help

Hi Mike see attached.

Working from the underneath remove sump guard cover(s), then remove pipe numbered 1 (jubilee clip each end) and then squeeze the spring clip 1 on the small Diverter valve hose and pull the dv out of the small hose, then from the topside disconnect pipe 2 top end where it connect to air box two torx pins which line up and pull out, remove air box front cover and filter, loosen jubilee clip 1 and the pipe numbered 2 can be removed with the dv still attached. You then can get your hand inside far enough to pinch the pipe clips and release the pipe. If you have mini hands you may not need to remove pipe 2 but I very much doubt it. 


Whilst out remove and test the DV, simple test push the brass disk inside effectively opening the valve and then hold your finger tight on the vacuum nipple, it should hold the brass spring loaded diaphragm open until you release your finger and it will snap shut under spring pressure). Also blow in each end and it should be shut unless the diaphragm is split. 


More info here.......... from Thomas, myself and a few other contributors.
