View Full Version : I Need Help Identifying This Split Turbo Hose

So, last night I drove my 2006 Sprinter just a tad heavier than usual. This morning I heard quite a rush of air coming from the passenger side (USA) of my Sprinter when I pressed the pedal down. I thought maybe a hose loosened up from my aluminum resonator replacement. I popped the hood and crawled under. I didn't see anything. So I looked from the top and immediately saw this crack.

I actually did a search, and checked ebay and parts diagrams, but after searching, quite a few hoses look quite the same with different part numbers.

This hose comes from the bottom of the radiator area, leaks turbo, and is near my resonator. I haven't had to replace this hose yet. It's actually 11 years old now.

What is the part number, or name for this hose?

TIA

Lower hose

A bicycle tube patch overlaid with cable ties will work as a temporary fix until the part gets to you.

My tire tube patch has been working since last summer. No reason for me to change my 2004 hose yet.

My van hasn't gone into limp-home mode yet, but I know it's coming. A quick cycle of the key fixes that. I'm in Florida, so it's all flat here and I think I can wait until it arrives. Thanks for the advice.

Just to finish this post up, it looks like it's part number 901-528-54-82, also known as 9015285482 or 901 528 54 82

While you're at it, change the other intercooler hose.

In that case chewing gum will work. I like Beemans Blackjack for flavor. A bonus is that the color matches the OEM hose color.

While you're at it, change the other intercooler hose.
Or buy some cable ties and a hose patch kit. :tongue:

i see that, and raise you. buy extras, toss them in the back. :2cents:

BTW, nice photo of the split. often they are less conspicuous.

The MB dealership calls it a "lower booster hose". I myself tried replacing it with an Autozone hose while out on the road but it has 2 different circumferences so the fit didn't work. Mine split and left me with little power due to the vacuum leak it created. A quick fix with triple wide electrical tape got me home to Colorado through the mountains.

For future reference the hose is not a vacuum hose but a boost hose, as in its name.

You lost power when the boost opened the split and the measured boost fell below the expected value, possibly causing LHM.

Doesn't anybody believe in duct tape anymore...


Gorilla Tape?

That may work with an overlay of cable ties or other binding. Without extra help the tape will likely expand and allow air to escape.

Tape is worth trying alone if you have no other method.

A tire tube patch with cable tie overlay is a next to permanent repair.

Well its OK if you are half way up the Khyber Pass and it splits!
Whereupon (I might add) a swarthy individual with turban comes along producing a roll of your universal duct tape (made in India) saying "this is working working mister"! As he rocks his head from side to side uttering "its most agreeable!"


The best way of course is install new hoses at 100,000 miles (these are most cheaply mister) and avoid the problem all together !
As the fakir said
This is a very British remedy said one fakir Sunil Gupta "Most expedient and efficacious those people were, and they came for more than 400 years until they wore out their welcome!

Oh good God man and at that point I will get my Mhat mahcoat plus blue turban before these bodging remedies will have me leave this thread!
Yes peace be with you all--- said Lord Dhanvantari. God of Healing! Maybe split turbo hoses too!

Well full dealer list price on it is $32.
If you can simply get one from a dealer or specialist parts outlet.
With a dealer you won't have to pay shipping and have it the very same day.
