The intercooler hoses take a lot of abuse over their lifetime due to constant pressure changes and heat. Over time, they can rupture leaving you stranded. In this article I'll go over the steps involved with changing them out.

Accessing the hoses requires you to remove the front bumper cover. See our article on Front Bumper Cover Removal for more information.

Begin by loosening the hose clamp (green arrow) holding the intercooler hose to the throttle body.
