    Was doing a service on my car today when i noticed some oil had been sitting on the noise insulation cover.
    When i looked up to see what could be wrong i noticed the intercooler pipe (metal part) was not holding the rubber pipe as well as it should be, there was a fair bit of play in it. Closer inspection and the jubilee clip type was broken and there was a chip out of the metal part of pipe.

    According to ETKA part No 1K0 145 762 CK (pressure pipe) was listed at around £50, but my prices are a bit out of date.

    That part number is for the BKC engine. Part number for BKD engine has suffix CL

    CK is £70 ish and CL is £45 ish for some unknown reason !

    Just had mine done at VAG independant garage and price incl fitting and VAT was £68 (BKD engine ).

    The latest part is all plastic which solves the problem of metal to rubber bonding.

    Good luck !
