Hello,

A quick question to anyone in the know, looking at the below images does your turbo to intercooler hose connection look like this turbo side?


Just doesn't look right to me, cannot get the hose on any further. I have just fitted a new seal as there was an oil leak in this area spraying oil everywhere.

The clip is located in its groove and the pipe is locked in but just doesn't look right to me hence posting on this forum. I have been trying to find images to compare but Google isn't helping me on this one.

Not sure but will it fit the other way round.
Please ignore me if that is totally not doable not been under the bonnet of a car like that for a long while (disabled/retired now).

No it's a one way fit, I will most probably just monitor the connection for leaks, I really do not see it can go on any further. This was a replacement turbo many years ago, I guess it most probably fits other vehicles so possible this is why there's the excessive gap.

You could well be right with the model and turbo fitment just strange why it's like that.
