this morning my hubby was driving down the m1 when all of a sudden there was a rather loud popping noise come from the car. after the noise occured the car started to chuck loads of thick black smoke from the exhaust. any ideas on what the problem could possibly be? the car is a 53plate vw touran 2l tdi

We've took the front bumper off and found a pipe below the engine has come off and needs a new jubilee clip. Would this just be the cause of it or could the turbo have possibly gone as well

Sounds like it is the intercooler hose popped off, better than splitting I suppose and should only need a new clip.

I would also check the boost pressure is not too high due to a seized wastegate valve or defective solenoid
