I've had this issue for awhile now. The metal clip that is supposed to hold the male and female ends of the chargepipe together is not locking and obviously not holding the pipe together. Any type of pressure and it just pops out. I have an ets tmic but I haven't seen others with thus issue. It used to be a bitch getting on and off but now I have to use couplers and hose clamps which are just a band aid currently. I posted about this in the fb group and people are saying it's user error but I've taken the chargepipe apart quite a few times. The picture showing it all cooked and sideways is what happens when I hear the hissing and pop the hood. I'm just not sure how to remedy this. As there aren't any aftermarket chargepipes for the vb yet I am clearly gonna have to figure this out. Maybe I'm not pushing it far enough in to get it seated properly but I don't recall it ever being much of a pain getting it to go back in. Just taking it out.
