C5 Suspension Pump Mark 1

Post by citroenxm »

Seeing how utterly useless the Forum Search is, I decided I had to make a post on it.... Its either utterly rubbish or I cant use it, anyway..

Ive also asked on CCC facebook page, but basicly Im facing a C5 with a dead suspension pump. So what I need to know is, how or what sort of a job is it to swap the suspension pump? Is it easy, hard? Messy?

Its not a hard job but it can be a bit messy. You need to remove the wheel arch liner & the headlamp for access. Nearly every one I have changed has needed pressure to be applied to the system to get it to lift afterwards, a normal cooling system pressure tester kit does this no problem & half a bar is plenty.
