    Question Boost leak

    Please bear with me if I've got my terminology wrong...

    I've apparently got a boost leak between my dump valve and actuator (IIRC) that is giving me an EML. Dan (beachbuggy) read the code for me, but I was unusually inattentive and neglected write down the fault code.

    Is it a straightforward process to track down and resolve what I imagine is a basic problem? Is it simply a case of checking and tightening any clips attaching to the actuator and DV and also checking over any hoses for signs of degradation?

    I'd really appreciate any pointers!

    Thanks chaps.
