    hi all , do any of you knowledgeable diesel buffs out there know what the part is below? the engine is my 2007 sprinter 316 5 cyl . the part is attached to the bottom of the airbox and has a rubber tube going to the turbo . i took as good a photo as i can but it is in a really hard place to get at. when i turn the engine off this little thing makes a sort of buzzing sound for about 15 seconds , not too loud but i had the bonnet up at the time and noticed it. doesnt seem to make any difference to engine while driving and no lights on the dash. any ideas ? regards sean

    Vacuum pipe for the (turbo) boost control solenoid. If you ever have random cut outs, or boost problems, look for this pipe as it is known to fail.

    cheers guys, i have found a very small pinhole in a vacuum pipe under the airbox and when i turn off the engine the noise is it pulling in a little bit of air. doesnt seem to affect performance at the moment so will get it fixed asap. cheers again :Smile:
