Hi guys,

That day on routine engine check, found my air filter hose connected to the turbine intake loose. The clip have been tighten to the maximum and still loose (moving). Was wondering what to use to tighten it up. The hose is rubber, so probably through the years of use could have harden and shrunk a little. The turbine is hot so cannot fit any rubber or paper, so was thinking what else can use.

So I raided my wife's kitchen for some "Diamond" brand aluminum foil. Fold a few rounds to make it thick and wrap onto turbine. Then fold another layer and fit in between the locking clip. In the end, repaired and tight fitting. Here are some pictures....

Nope, the air filter to turbine is original connection. Funny shape and join like L connection downwards.
Only this area is loose that is why the aluminum foil repair....

I will try to take picture of the upper hose...
