    black rubber pipe to the right of the engine, or try the bottom hose - black one under the bumper from the bottom of the intercooler - that could be damaged

    yeah i got it m8 cheers, both hoses seem fine although the bottom 1 is quite hard to inspect as it sits in the bumper.

    Just another question, has anyone ever had their vacumm box go??
    if so what are the signs and how much does it cost to replace??
