1.6 HDi Cylinder Head Removal C4GP (C4 Grand Picasso)

Post by akube »

Hello

So i own a C4 Grand Picasso with 150k miles. These minivans have their engines so far below the dash that i wonder if its possible to remove the cylinder head without removing the engine from the car? I can't get a good view of the back of the engine!, even with all the scuttle and windscreen liner removed!

Alright, so i just might be able to go in blind, there is enough room for my hands and i only have to take off a few bolts. BUT!

I am putting this job on hold as i think my oil leak was coming from the cam carrier cover.

Stupid source of the leak was hiding behind the Fuel filter housing panel so i never found it when i put UV dye into the engine months ago. it only occurred to me to have a closer look today!
