    The clip looks fine to me from that picture. You will probably find the metal coupling on the intercooler hose has worn. I would take the hose off and inspect the coupling.

    Both clip and hose will be availabe from main dealers.

    Yeah i thought the coupling would have been worn. Unfortunately you have to buy a new boost pipe mate as the coupling and hose can't be separated. AFAIK the hose is dealer only aswell
