Default Turbo Help Please

Help needed here,

My 04 2.2 CRD (im in the UK) started making a new sound. Im 99% sure its the turbo as its fine at normal speeds but when you put you foot down enough to get the turbo to kick in i can here it. I would class it as a noisy hair dryer with a slight rattle.
Ive had no loss in performance at 1st but knew if i started getting power loss it could be the famous turbo problem of a split hose. Low and behold i have now had the power loss 4 times in 2 months and once the car had stopped and started again it was fine. So apart from the noise i think i have the popular split hose or similar. Maybe other people who have had the split hose also had the noise but just didn't notice it.
Your thoughts and help much appreciate..
Thanks

ps
is this the hose

I don't think we will be much help here. You have a model that is not available on this side of the pond. It does sound like a boost leak though.

Sounds like you diagnosed the problem yourself. The power loss and the noise could be both fro the split hose. Pretty common here.

By the way, the biggest and friendliest PT Cruiser site in the UK is here:

UK Cruiser Club :: Index

Not pushing you away, it's just that the diesel is only available overseas as well as the 2.0 gasoline engine and they are a great bunch of guys. You can use both forums, no problems.

sorry but we dont have the diesel version here but looks like you solved your own problem. but to make sure i would just boost leak test it to be certan. visable cracks and rips in hoses are easy to see and troubleshoot but its the tiny ones that show up when you boost leak test like a torn or poped off vac line.

again sorry we cant be much help but hope you get your answers from the site that CREW posted above.
