    Default Leak.

    I have a small water leak down the back of my engine somewhere, it seems to be dripping on to the steering rack. Any ideas?
    Cheers stu.

    Not sure, I replace that hose recently on my own and the spring clamps. The hose might not be spilt,might just the clips are not sealing at either the turbo end or the drivers side head connection. Sometimes you get away with using a small jublee instead of the clamp but be carefull as they can eat into the hose as cause it to pop

    That pipe doesnt need much for it to seal to be honest, just make sure the top end is on properly as the water can run down the pipe making it look like it is split or coming from the bottom end of it.

    Turned out it was just the pipe on the bottom of the tank not sealed right. It was running down a couple of pipes before hitting the ground, thats why i thought it was the back of the engine.
