    Burst turbo hose?

    Over the last few days my dv has gotten alot louder (only 2 months old 007P). It now sounds like the turbo is sucking air from the outside it also sounds like air rushing in. I have looked under the bonnet and cant see or hear anything when the car is stationary. The noise seems to be only audible in the car.

    Is it a bust hose?

    check that all hoses are secure and clipped tightly. the only way to properly tell if you have a split hose is to get it checked with a compressor and gauge at a garage. Dome pin sized holes that are invisible to the naked eye can expand to the size of a 1 pence piece under boost!

    found the hose which was burst, its the small pressure regulator hose on the steel tube before the turbo. thanks for your help.

    just had to order a kit from audi as they dont sell hoses seperately!
