    Cut Intercooler Water Inlet Hose

    Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to pass this along. I removed the intercooler and turbo to gain bettter access to the engine/driveshaft coupler. I wanted to check alignment. What I found was that the intercooler water inlet hose was resting on the coupler and almost cut through.

    Here are a couple of pics.

    This is a F15X

    You are missing the plastic coupler cover. It holds the hose away from the coupler.

    i would recommend adding one.

    Thanks. I will make sure to install it. It makes sense now because I couldn't see anything that held the hose away.
