Xantia 2.0 HDI 110 - engine mount/stabiliser - information and where to buy

Post by Pshemsky »

Hi Guys.

I know that you got a massive knowledge and plenty workshop manuals so hopefully will be able to help me on this one. Engine doing some sharp movements during sudden acceleration and when pedal is released. I was told that engine mounts need to be replaced. I saw a broken bush on top mount but pretty sure that not only reason for that issue. How the other mount looks like ? I'm guessing that they not the same as in 90bhp model ? I'm looking for any other place where I can source the parts, because quote from Citroen dealership was almost equal to a value of car :roll:

I would appreciate any help.

O yes, forgot about that - vin VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

The mounts are slightly different on the 110 to the 90. The most likely cause of the engine rocking is failure of the torque link on the inner wing. See this thread: viewtopic.php?t=49891 Hopefully yours is not as bad as mine was!! The bit looks to be available still, but has now crept up to around £40. The bush is not available separately from Citroen, but I expect it could be replaced with a poly bush if necessary.

The inner wing link is item 1. The others that might be a cause of rocking are 11 or 26, which also appear to be available, at £35 each.

Thanks Richard. Not too bad - £105 for whole set. The whole problem seems to be in garages itself. I ask few around and looks like these days "mechanics" choosing easier way and turning more into fitters - they want to order the whole mounting instead of bushes. One guy even laugh in my face and told me that he cant be bothered and by time he'll replace bushes (in his meaning - waste 2-3 hrs) labour will cost him more than whole mountings, so he prefer order more expensive parts and just do few bolts in 30 min :?
Unfortunately that how it is now, so if you know a right mechanic nearby with right tools to to his you can call yourself a lucky one ;)

PS: The post which link you insert above is about same car - i'm new owner. So I'm guessing that Faz had a 'magic quote' from one of these "fitters" and decide not to do it. :roll:

Hi 26 is available from Powerflex as a poly bush press old one out then push two parts back in yourself and probably same as other one 11?

Takes a few mins to press old ones out what they mean is there sh!te and don't have the equipement

Friend was saying you can get a DIY bush presser/driver that does it with bolt and cups?

I got the all from Citroen in Chester. Found a guy which will do both bushes for £30 so that sorted. At same time will do timing belt and few other bits and bobs :)
