broken intercooler pipe

Hi all,

I have just noticed that the intercooler pipe on my E90 320D has broken off the turbo, i will be getting the pipe repaired, do i have to do anything else with the intercooler, do i need to pump in compressed air or will it look after its self. any advise would me appreciated

If you're asking whether you need to pressurize the induction system after the repair, No you don't.

If you're asking whether you need to maintain the intercooler in any way, also no, but while it is off you could clean it out with some carb cleaner and compressed air if you like.
