    How does the boost pipe connect to the turbo on the BKD engine?

    I've an oil leak at this joint and need to change the seal, usually I take a look on ETKA to give me an idea of what to expect but can't seem to see how this connection is made.

    Is it just the ususal spring clip or something different?

    It's the usual spring clip. The newer boost pipes are all plastic so there is no metal/rubber bracket problem.

    Just had mine replaced for £68 inc VAT.

    To my knowledge there isn't a seal to replace but I wait to be corrected !!!
