    Hi all

    Just had a recovery home as my 08 seat leon just made a fairly loud bang and pretty much immediately started to struggle getting somewhere safe

    I think it came from the drivers side of the car and I thought the drivers side tyre had blown initially

    Anyone have any tips of what it could be - Ive been googleing and possibly the intercooler pipe has come off???? Ive only had a quick look and thought I saw a pipe that was open in the engine bay near the bottom if you know what I mean

    Would that be an easy think to spot and fit it??

    Will look tomorrow when the weather gets better!

    No warning lights came on at all too

    Thanks for any tips!

    Thanks - thats what I hope it is I dont want to face a new turbo - anybody know if its easy to do or better to just take to replace the pipe at a garage as I hear they can keep popping off if just put back on??
