    Default Turbo coolant return hose connector leaking

    Hey guys I've noticed recently that a leak is coming from the return hose from the turbo, I replaced it a month back as the pipe split and was brittle pretty much fell apart, when I was removing the old connector It crumbled and I had to dig it out Im wondering if there is meant to be some kind of washer inside? or if I've damaged the metal connector on the turbo. I'll update the thread with a few photos when I get the chance but this is the hose Im talking about and its the connector on the end.
    Cheers

    No washer, the pipe has a rubber seal on the connector as you can see.

    if its leaking maybe you damage where it goes into the block.

    You can replace all of that with silicone hose if you want;

    Doing that will clamp hose directly onto the housing so it will get round and damage you may have done previously.
