Hi All,
This morning my 2012 Qashqai lost power. On checking the engine bay I find this...

Pipe has spit at the top. Phoned dealers and they have a part in stock (approx £60) and they could fit it (about 30min labour) however they started going on that the error codes will need reseting - costing a few ££ to do so, and the DPF cleared (extra ££) - potentially new oil filter etc (more ££). -- are they telling the truth or taking the pee. They said that it could be £400 

Ive had look around and this does seem to be a common part to fail. has anyone had any horror stories with this work?

Hoping that I can just swap out the part myself and let the red light reset itself (some posts say this does happen)

You can reset the error code yourself using a free phone app such as Torque and a cheap bluetooth OBD adapter from ebay/amazon (about a fiver)

I had exactly the same problem about a month after a software upgrade. Initially diagnosed as mass air flow sensor but I spotted the split whilst waiting for the quote for the sensor. About £60 for the part and the garage didn't charge for the fitting as it literally took 10 minutes. Reset the code with an ODB reader from Amazon for about £27. New part has substantially more weld.
