xantia pump

Post by davethewheel » 27 Sep 2004, 02:08

i was doing some work on my xantia today, new brake pipe and lhm change and iv'e noticed that it's leaking from where the two pipes go into the top of the hydraulic pump, both pipes appear to be tight, is there some kind of seal in there and has anyone fixed this?, most of the previous citroens I've had have weeped from around here but it's starting to drip on the floor so maybe it's time i fixed it.

When my pump started dripping more than it used to I suspected that the rubber pipe had split. Not so! It turned out that the metal pipe from the pump (that the rubber pipe connects to) had become "unbraised". In fact I could easily move it in and out. I sorted it with Screwfix polyurethane wood adhesive! If anyone's interested I'll let you know how I did it.

the leak i have appears to be coming from were the metal pipe screws into the pump and the joint is tight.

Last time I had this it was a crack in the body between one cylinder and a bolt hole, and the LHM was coming out of the thread of one of the fixing bolts on the collector casting near the pipe [:(]
