Hi there, don’t know if I’ve labelled this part properly- so apologies if not. The pipe that’s connected to the turbo (to the right of you are facing the car) seems to be coming away from the turbo about an inch. I’ve tried tightening the jubilee clip, but it happened again. There is also a tiny amount of possibly oil or fluid around the seal of the black pipe. Don’t know if it’s affecting the performance much or if it’s dangerous to drive it, but would like to fix it.

I'm pretty sure that's the cold air intake hose and it's my understanding that a little oil will go through that system as part of normal operation. It's surprising that the jubilee clip would allow it to come loose like that, but this might be a great opportunity to upgrade the cold air intake system with a cone and silicone tubing.

Thanks guys! Yeah I’ve almost butchered the jubilee clip so I’ll get a new one before I start fiddling. Much appreciated
