Hi folks. I'm hoping for some help with a problem I have.
A few weeks ago the engine light came on orange. I took it to get diagnosed, and the mechanic said the faults were not related, and cleared them. I've driven around 500 miles since then, and the light came on again.
I had a look at the engine, and noticed some oil that had been sprayed around the turbo, and forward on to the radiator fan. I took it to a local mechanic, and he said he thought that there was a split in the air inlet hose to the turbo. He said it was an easy fix I could do myself, and I so I ordered a new hose.
Sure enough when I removed the old hose, there was a split in it, just below the jubilee clip that holds it on to the turbo.
The problem I have is that the new hose isn't the same size or shape as the old hose. Where I ordered it from had it advertised as a hose for a MkII Focus 1.6TDCI, which is what I have. The only extra information on the site was that it was for cars fitted with the square air filter, which is also what I thought I have.
So I'm not sure why it's different, or more importantly, what I need to order. I've not been able to find a hose anywhere that looks the same as the one fitted.
Does anyone know if there was a variation, or know where I could order the part. For comparison, I've attached photos of the hose I ordered, and the one fitted to my car.
The one I ordered;
The one on my car looks like this. Note the main difference is in the length, and the part of the hose to the right of the small hose is 'offset' rather than straight.
