    Hi all. Just had a service and cam belt done and the lower intercooler pipe keeps popping off. Any recommendations on a new one? Cheers

    It depends on the engine as to what goes wrong, on the 130 it can be failure of the ally link pipe and on the 150 a cracked intercooler.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    A better than factory bodge is to get a pair of correctly sized (measure what is there) 'U' shaped exhaust clamps around both parts and then clamp them together with some stainless steel cable ties. Yes stainles steel cable ties, about £7 for 100.

    Every joint on both my gracefully aging B.5 Passat and the Wifes also gracefully aging MK4 Golf 130 TDI are secured this way.

    Make sure you use stainless cable ties. Normal plastic ones are not up to the job and will soon let go.
