Hole in the intake?

Post by RobMorris » Thu Sep 20, 2018 1:25 pm


I have a 2008 123d and was planning to replace the glow plugs.

But as I removed the panels I found a hole in the intake? There was also quite a lot of oil in the area assuming being blasted from said hole?

Its almost as if something has blasted/eaten its way out? Its around 1cm in diameter.

Any ideas how it could have happened or how to fix it (Bodge it) without replacing the whole intake?
