Urgent... 2.2 hdi upper radiator hose pipe!

Post by IHateMySelf »

A few days ago the upper radiator hose split and ive been lòoking for replacment for two days now, i top up about 10 litres of water a day to keep the car going.

Ive tried duct tape but that was no good so i bought special heat tape from halfords and that worked for about an hour....

Ive gone to eurocarparts even citroen dealers but no one has the hose. Ive even tried scrap yards.

Is any one breaking a c5 that can sell my the upper hose? Or anyone who had one laying around?

Im located in london but can travel 70 miles out if i have to tonight as it really is urgent and ive ran out of options.

Thanks guys!

I feel your pain there :(

be careful overnight from now for a few days with neg temps if you only have water in, I say be careful but I mean get some antifreeze in there..
Go to Bridges on the M23 just after Gatwick, go tomorrow, and get that pipe! they have tons of psa diesels, hopefully most will have pipes that will fit
good luck

Try giving A1 Wokingham Car Spares a call. I know that (before Christmas) they had a 2.2 C5 Mk1 in;

Thanks for the reply... ill phone them first thing n the morning.

In the mean time is anyone on the forum breaking a c5 or any model with the 2.2 in it?

Also is the 2.0 hdi upper hose the same as the 2.2's?

Thanks again!

You might be able to fit a copper plumbing fitting as a splice in the pipe, depending on the size / location of the split. Otherwise, you could get one of those bling silicone hoses made up! I'll try and remember later to see if the part number crosses to any other cars.

Assuming this is a MK1 then there are no matches for the hose on other Cits or Pugs.... service.citroen says it is 32mm / 592 long, which should allow you to buy some bling stuff, eg cooooool blue

As said piece of copper pipe slipped inside the pipe or a piece of sink waste pipe just to get you back on the road.

:? I'd be very worried about sink waste pipe coping with the temps and pressures involved? Even for a short time?

Trust me it will be fine you are only going to use it as an insert with a couple of jubilee clips.

I was in at A1 Wokingham Car Spares this afternoon, and that C5 2.2 HDi was still there. I had a look in the engine bay, and it looks complete (barring the MAF sensor). I couldn't remember what you were after, otherwise I would have removed it for you. I did let them know I was posting up this for you.
