    Another problem with my Gsi.

    Walked out to my car tonight and the girlfreind noticed a patch of water collecting on the ground under the front of the car, so i took a quick browse and found a pipe which starts off at the top of the rad and goes into the turbo by the actuator leaking it must of only started doing it this afternoon as i've never noticed it before.

    Does any one know what this pipes called & a ruff price? also will it be safe to drive the car while its leaking like this and is it easy enough to change over?

    excuse my poor knowlodge of cars .

    Thanks!

    Looks like ill be geeting my self a set off tools and having ago at it myself,doesn't look to be a hard job.

    Would i have to drain the rad completey then take the old hose off then just simply refill with new coolant?

    dont have to drain the rad m8 there is a copper washer each side of the banjo bolt onto the turbo and just use a pair of pipe or mole grips to undo the clip onto rad
