The short bit of silicone? hose inbetween my turbo and the inlet manifold on my 420td(1998) keeps coming off at the bottom.
i have put a wider jubilee clip on it but it keeps happening,i have even turned the boost down :( but it still happens, any ideas?
cheers Ray

could be an engine mount,letting the engine pull on the hose and pulling it off,take it off and try cleaning the inside of the pipe and where it fits on to with some brake cleaner to get all the slime off it and don't boot the car so much , just to see if it is that,

actually before you clean it,just try the gentle pulling away and gear change and see if that helps first.

It won't be an engine mount as these two components are bolted together.
You have to make sure the hose and the bits that it fit on to are oil free otherwise they can slip off as you've experienced. Brake cleaner works well for this.
