Berlingo

Argh, berlingo's. After changing cambelt on one, decided after an hour of trying to get one specifc bolt back to hold the cover on through the wheel arch with about 1mm clearance not to bother.

From thence forward van using water. Almost convinced myself new cambelt too tight, must be waterpump.

Oh no. Mr Citroen decided the one most difacult cam belt cover bolt would ALSO hold the water pump in.

So the water pump is secured in place by a long bolt that passes through a plastic cover first. Genius.

I believe this affects all Vectras and Astras of this era - and is so common the garage can tell you the fault before you've finished saying 'puddle of water in the footwell'.
Common fault on B5/B6 Audi A4s too. The plenum chamber drain grommet gets blocked, floods the footwell and destroys the brake servo or ECU.
