Hi Everyone. I just found out I had a massive oil leak on my 2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T and was finally able to get under and trace it to what I believe is the Oil Feed Pipe from the Block to the Turbo. It's pretty much shooting right out the top side of the sleeve towards the turbo and hitting the side of the engine bay.

I'm attaching some pictures, but i'm looking to get some insight into how hard it would be to replace it myself. It looks like it's going to be nigh impossible without taking off a bunch of other hoses, brackets, turbo air tubes, the catalytic converter, possibly the steering rack, and who knows what else.

Anybody else have any insight on replacing this or how much it might cost to have a shop do it? Because i'm considering it at this point with how difficult it looks.

To fit​


Important
To reduce the risk of hoses mounted on the delivery side of the turbocharger coming loose due to low friction at high air pressure, the hoses and connecting pieces must be cleaned thoroughly before fitting. Use a rag dampened with 93 160 907 Motip Dupli cleaning agent to wipe clean inside the ends of the hoses. Clean the connecting pieces as well. If hose clips are rusty or damaged, they must be replaced so the correct clamping force is maintained.



1.Fit the upper section of the oil delivery pipe to the turbocharger with new gaskets and connect the pipe.

Tightening torque, oil delivery pipe to turbocharger 28 Nm (20 lbf ft)

2.Fit the lower section of the oil delivery pipe to the engine block. Replace the gaskets.

Tightening torque 28 Nm (20 lbf ft)
3.Fit the catalytic converter, see Catalytic converter, Front, catalytic converter, US/CA.
4.Remove the wing cover.
