S60 D3 Charger pipes

Post by Harry Subrayal » Tue Aug 08, 2017 4:40 am

Good day. I need assistance please. Yesterday I started to hear a hissing sound coming from behind the center console / passenger foot well when I accelerated, note the sound, sounds as if it comes from outside the car though (this does not happen when I rev the car and it has never happened in the past). Shortly after that the engine service light came on and the car went into limp mode (going up a steep hill). I used the obd2 sensor and got the error code POOBD / POO42 which both says is got to do with the air flow meter, etc. I was told by a guy on a other forum that the hissing sound is from the charger hose that has burst and this in turn stuffs up the airflow meter, etc.

I need to know. How many pipes are there? Where is the pipes exactly? Which way would be the easiest to disconnect the pipes and remove them so I can see if any one of them has burst? I see the top of the engine does not give access to the bottom pipe.

I also would like to hear if anyone else hear would agree with the initial diagnosis?

Ps: I did disconnect the pipe that goes into the filter box and blocked the airflow with my hand and the suction is very strong. It did not feel, nor sound as if there could be a leak in that pipe. Would my assumption be correct? I drive a 2011 S60 D3 Geartronic. :( :cry:

Thanks everyone. I have stripped the car yesterday and found that it was the rubber hose going from the turbo to the front of the engine compartment. Fairly easy to remove and install the pipe if u dont mind scrapping your knuckles. My conswrn though is...there were two pieces at the top view of the hose that had melted away a bit (this made it weak) even though it does not touch or go near any hot pipe or the engine at all. Coulf this be a manufacturing problem? Anyway. I fixed it temporRily with duct tape as a new pipe osts R2 500.00. I will buy and install the new one month end.
