JTD Intercooler Pipe

All,

How hard is it to change the intercooler pipe that usually splits ?

Sounds like mine has gone and couldn't see a guide for it, so need to allocate some time to do it and was wondering if anyone had any advice before starting the job...

Probably not seen much of this repair in the last 10 years..

If it were me.. I would get the proper part identified

Slacken off the ancilliaries..and kit in your way.. might SOAK some parts for a week before starting..

Worth getting some spare hose.. even modern 'boy racer' tube
And extra clips

As any FIAT part might be 12 years old when you fit it

@varesecrazy

I've already got a silicone lower hose, just wanted a rough idea of A) How hard it is to do and B) Rough amount of time.

It's my daily driver so can't really afford to start it and then find out it going to take ages.

Re: JTD Intercooler Pipe

It should be fairly easy, just be shure to have new hose clamps if you still have original there.

Re: JTD Intercooler Pipe

Ok jobs all done. Hardest part was i'd ordered the wrong size Mikalor Clamps (59-63mm).

Parts used:
Lower Intercooler Hose - https://dphsiliconehose.co.uk/index....rch=Fiat+Stilo

Lower Intercooler Hose Clamps - Mikalor W5 316 Stainless Steel Clamp (63-68mm) Mikalor Part No: 03013770

Must of had a slight split/hole in it before it finally gave way (ended up with a 2 inch split) as the car goes like a rocket now.

Think it had been changed in the past as it was rubbing on the wheel arch cover hence why it ended up with a 2 inch split. Looking at it they had fitted it the wrong way round with the longer length by the intercooler end instead of using the shorter length there. Hence why it was rubbing on the wheel arch cover.

Re: JTD Intercooler Pipe

Mine touches a bit too... but I strapped a piece of old underbonnet mat to it with a cable tie, to stop it fretting. Next time I'm in there (clutch change soon) I'll see if rotating it slightly (or fitting it the other way round) sorts it.
