Hi ... only just started doing this... unfortunately M1 ! ... managed to limp off the motorway.. the boost pipe blew off the engine with quite a pop ... thought a tyre had gone.. but the management light then came on. No smoke just popped the pipe off. I tightened back on but if hard accelerate off it comes. Is this just time to stick new pipes on and clips or could it something more? Runs fine when back on .. no lights etc Cheers

Hi Mate.
The “ears” on the pipes wear down and pop off when under load.
Just buy new ones from your local branch of TPS.
They are normally around the £60-£70 mark. Easy driveway fix. Just lube up the o rings with some oil before re-fixing.
