    Hi All,

    My DV hose had a leak when I first thought the car at the end (engine side) which I cut down and refitted - this worked fine with the standard TIP - however now I have the aftermarket TIP fitted it's not long enough and pulling the TIP up causing it to bend at the turbo side.

    Does anyone know the internal diameter of the hose so I can pick some up from a motor factors place, or is it a special reforced hose?

    Thanks in advance!

    Normal Dv size is 25mm id iirc, you may be thinking of the breather size which is 19mm id :)
