Anyone know where this air leak could be coming from? To me it sounds like it's coming from the FPR area,I've checked all the hoses I can see around there making sure all are tight but it's still no better.

Saw in Wheelers Dealers last night they held a small part of tissue up to areas where they thought they might be an air leak. May be worth a try?

I've bought some brake cleaner but not sure about trying this method now after a quick google as it could be harmful to plastics and rubber.
