2006 C5 V6 expansion tank / bottle

Post by ekaftan »

I was reinstalling the intake manifold today and I broke the tiny tube that goes over the engine to the coolant expansion tank. A small part got stuck inside the tank so I need both, the tank and the hose.

But I cant find them anywhere!!

Are the ones for the 2.0 petro and HDI engines compatible? those are dime a dozen new and used on ebay.

thanks!

(I hate old brittle plastic..)

1323V2 was the part number for the actual expansion tank - no longer available. from Citroen.

Note the fixing points and specifically, the front centre cylinder mount is different on some of these alternatives.

The following were the alternative tanks, but there are some differences (I've put the part numbers in brackets for you):

ekaft tank es9a 1323V2.PNG
ekaft tank DV6TED4  1323S8.PNG
This one is for an EW7J4 Petrol (1323V1)

It has a slightly different top left fixing mount
and the centre front cylinder has
a cut out section.
This is from an ES9a Petrol (1323V2)

This one has a float level on the top
and a different rear right fixing.
This one is from a DV6TED4 (1323S8)

This one has 2 pipe connections.

As for the hoses, it depends which one you are after:

Item (7) is no longer available, but item (8) is available.

Part numbers for both:

(7) 1341H0
(8) 1323H9 £18.78 inc UK VAT direct from Citroen.

Thanks!!!

I think I'll go with 1323S8 as it is the most avaliable and looks like it will fit with no problem.

The hose that broke is number 8 in the chart. I epoxied back into place and it works... could I replace that entire pipe with a standard hose and clamps?

Ok, so (8) is the Expansion Chamber Water Hose, part number and price above.

For the price of a new one at under £19 I wouldn't take a chance to be honest. I'd just get a proper genuine one.

Do you know of Citroen dealers that would ship to Chile or the USA?

We have Citroen dealers down here but lead time can be months on something not in stock.

Thanks!

No, it all comes from their distribution centres - whichever ones serve your Country / locality. It's the same here - out of stock parts (which are most non-service parts) have to come from France to the UK. I'm awaiting a new alloy wheel - 7-10 day back order.
