Futher update, have had a long chat with mike the owner and the leak has got worse and appears to be coming from infront of the rear height corrector at the 4 branch manifold so.
1.has anyone had problems in this area as i certanly havent
2. is there anyone within a small stones through of warrington that could have a butchers and possibly do a bodge for me ? I am willing to pay in either beer tokens or bucket full of various parts anyone?
The transport company have said a small leak is ok but evem lhm pissing out as harmless as it is will not get the car on the ferry.

I'd love to help but I'm pretty rubbish with mechanics. If it's a pipe that can be easily accessed I bet there's a way of bodging it up easily enough.

It sounds like the Octopus has gone. It's a 3 hour garage job and will cost you circa £150 if you find a good independent Citroen garage. It is also a filthy job to do so maybe worth doing before you ship the car.

Some guys on the forum have managed to splice in some pipe to effect a temporary repair but if you are keeping the car best to go for/do proper replacement for peace of mind. A temporary repair should get it your side of the water though.

If the octopus, as this is a return circuit, you may get away with putting the car on maximum height before boarding the ferry(&for the duration of the crossing) as then there will be no LHM return though this circuit until the car sinks again.

I see Vanny has PM'd you & is knowledgeable and relatively local so he will be an asset in helping you sort something.
