'99 e300d turbo intercooler parts, cant find this

my intercoolers plastic coupling has hole in it, dealers says that i have to buy whole intercooler just for what, anyone know how to get one? or know of one who has it?

it just makes no sense to pay close to $600 for whole thing when all i need is plastic coupling that hooks intercooler to pipe that leads up to turbo itself

anyone know of wrecked or parts car '99 e300 turbo d

Try to take a pic and post it up. We can probably figure out a way to resolve the issue.

#20 is a completely integrated unit, so it has no separate pieces. You either patch the hole or buy a new one. Depending on the type and location of the hole, you might be able to patch it with sheet aluminum and JB Weld or some such combo.

As luck would have it, I have the whole thing apart right now as I'm replacing the radiator. Looking at the assembly, if it was me, I'd pull the whole thing and put a bolt through the hole with some sort of sealant like silicone.

If it's not a round hole, you can probably use some fiberglass mat and JB weld working from the inside for strength.

Just came back in from horsing around more with the IC/radiator project. On my car, the inlet (passenger side) is aluminum and the outlet is plastic.

I would think it's no problem to just get it welded up.

How big is the hole? I would think you can easily repair it. The intercooler only sees about 15 PSI of air pressure at the most. Plastic parts can even be repaired by melting using a hot screwdriver tip or knife blade. If you post a photo of the damage maybe we can suggest a way to repair it.

Another suggestion would be to search on one of the salvage sites search engines like this one: http://www.car-part.com/

I saw 4-5 listed there.
