Common issue... best replacement is 3/8 Silicone hose IMHO. :-)  There is
also another section of hose down near the Turbocharger going from Turbo to
a plug in the block.  Do this while you are you coolant deficient.

Subject: Small Coolant Hose

Hi all,


Unfortunately, was driving on Autobahn at 100km and red triangle warning
light came on, at 80C, temp rose, just before 100C got off Autobahn to
"Fifth Wheel" gas station. Saw that small hose just under where hydraulic
pump attaches to engine was squirting out coolant, lost a bucket full of
coolant. Did not drive car any longer, called CAA, took car on flat bed to
my mechanic. Mechanic says hose leads to turbo charger to cool. Any one had
this problem?
