Default Turbo hose blown. Help? South coast nsw

Hi,
I'm from Brisbane and currently visiting kiama. My jeep is in Kiama with a blown turbo hose, engine side after intercooler.

I have to leave on Monday to drive back to Brisbane, and I can't find a wrecker or stock of a replacement hose before then.

Do any forum members have one I could buy?

It's a 2005 kj auto.

Thanks in advance.

go to an exhaust joint, find a pipe with as close as you do the I.D of the inside of the hose, and put a metal pipe in there and hose clamp both sides.

You can just bandage the hose with insulation tape. Will need at least 5 layers over the split.

Yesterday I bandaged it with tape, then cable ties over the top to stop expansion. After about 100km I started getting a boost leak, and low fuel economy, sounded like air being let out of a balloon but was mostly holding. I'm going to try and repair using rescue tape and rubber cement but we'll see how that goes. Might look at that idea clamping hard tube inside it. I hadn't considered that.

You need to put a pipe in it, any type of tape or sealant will just get hot and with the amount of boost pressure in the hose its going to fail.

I used the silicone repair tape, with a layer of contact adhesive underneath, that I let go off till only tacky, then used 2 rolls of tape over the top. It survived a 1000km trip, and it's still going. Currently waiting for my new hoses in the post.
