1.0L Ecoboost Induction Hose Mount Broken

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My 1.0L Ecoboost has recently developed a weird squeaking sound. It has been driving me crazy but yesterday I managed to pin point the issue.

The bolt securing the top section of the induction hose has completely snapped and the squeak is from the broken ends of the bolt rubbing together. I've highlighted the section of the hose mount in the images below and also thrown in a picture of the snapped bolt.

Has anybody got any experience of this and if so, is it an easy enough fix?

Cheers!

I've just had exactly the same problem last week. It took me ages to work out what was squeaking each time I stopped the engine. I couldn't get the snapped stud out of the engine so I've just removed the top half of the snapped part from the hose so the ends can't rub. I'll end up making something to hold the hose in place I expect.

No way! Same here, I was getting worried that it was something major. Managed to find it last night by pure chance. Thanks for that, I'll do the same so it at least stops the horrible squeak. 👍

I bet it's a common problem. I was worried it was a bearing squealing on the engine or something like that so I was relieved to find it was just a snapped stud. I wish I posted about it last week !

I did the usual googling and ended up convincing myself it was much worse that it was. Like you said, it was a relief to see it wasn't anything too bad. Same here, been driving myself mad figuring it out.

It's a very common problem, usually you have to take the intake pipe off and undo the snapped part with the nut on using a socket/spanner and some sort of grips and then to get the snapped stud out by just using grips. You can buy a new stud from ford for a couple of quid. Sorry I don't know the part number.

This happened to me too and was a really easy fix, I took out the induction hose as it makes access easier then removed the stud using a spanner (found it easier to use the ring type spanner as open ended can round it off)

The stud is cheap from any dealer but if you don't want to spend the cash there's actually a spare stud already on the engine you can use, just swap the broken stud you circled in red with the yellow one I've marked, just make sure both are nice n tight when swapped and put your induction hose back in place
