Turbo Intake Hose - cost of replacement


Hello All,
I have had a quick look on the forum regarding the turbo intake hose. I had the X-Trail in to the dealer today for a 50,000 k service and was advised that the turbo intake hose has a small split in it and it would require replacing. Now I am more use to fixing people than cars and am not really sure where this hose is, I had a bit of a look after reading some posts on the forum. Now if I am looking at the right hose, it doesn't seem all that big or difficult to fit, but I was quoted $314 for a new one. Does this seem a little expensive or is this about par.
Thanks
Cheers
Graem

Hi Graem,
Thats a lot of money for a hose to be replaced.
Turbo hoses do cost a little more but not that much.
The trick is to source one with all the kinks in the right places from an auto shop.
It might be a Nissan genuine part only and that is why the high cost.

If you can get the Nissan part number, you will be able to look for alternatives.

Just out of curiousity, is your car just out of warranty, or does Nissan refuse to cover it under warranty conditions? I currently have extended warranty on mine, and if this is an item they don't cover, I'm almost convinced that I will cancel the extended warranty.

Hi Exycol

Yes the car is just out of warranty. The dealer did enquire whether the car was still in warranty, so I can assume that it would be covered under warranty.

Re: Turbo Intake Hose - cost of replacement


I find it interesting the hose has split. Normally this happens through movement of one part relative to another or if the split is around the clamp it could be the clamp was tightened too much and cut the hose or clamped too close to the edge of the turbo pipe.
Which hose is it Gream ?
Maybe a slightly longer hose to take up the movement could be a better replacement if it was due to excessive movement ?

The other possibility for the split is that the hose is receiving higher pressure than the rated capacity of the hose. "Pulsing" of pressure in the hose can also cause hoses to split.
The high price might also be because the hose has to be a pressure tested one.
Does this intake hose run under any sort of pressure?

Its near impossible to kill the hose by tightening the clamp too tight and cut the hose in any way ... you will destroy the clamp long before it will cut the hose with standard issue nissan hose clamps

True, but over time with the constant vibration of the engine, it will eventually cut through. That is if it doesn't split between the clamps.
