Hydraulics!!!!!

Post by Adam » Fri Aug 04, 2006 9:58 pm

I have a broken pipe halfway along the front sub frame, it is the 3rd one down and I can't find where it goes to, any ideas or maybe even a hydraulic system diagram

Many Thanks

Dont think its broken. Look at the end of the pipe. Prettý sure you find that smallish bulbed special Citroen flaring some 10mm in at end.

This pipe is the return pipe from the rear HC. It connects to a rubber hose which is part of the bundle you can see in the engine bay RH (car's) corner. Must be a dangling rubber loose rubber hose down there somewhere near the pipe.

If you have truble finding it - then look at the NEXT largest rubber hose on the reservoir. Excatly this hose has 2 smaller hoses moulded on. One of these small hoses leads to the pipe down there.
BTW : the other one of these 2 small hoses is connected to the return from the front HC.

If you raise the suspension - then deliberately set it to low - you will see LHM frothing out the pipe above ...
