'02 C5 front hydraulic pipe leak

Post by aramsay »

I have an '02 C5 2.2HDi.....recently replaced both rear main sphere hydraulic pipes, but I now
seem to have developed a new leak up at the front !

On the offside in the engine compartment, there is a bunch of 3 pipes that are clipped together that
run from near the sphere-top, down the bulkhead towards the offside steering-rack gaiter.

The main run of pipes are all metal, but just above the gaiter, two of them have a short section
of rubber hose.....this section is covered with a plastic shroud.

Leak appears to be coming from the lower crimped join....see photos.

Does ayone know what pipes these are, and is this a known fault ?

As suggestions to replair it without removing the engine.... [-o<

Is this a 3+ system (with sport button)?. If its the main pipe harness i think it is then yes its quite a common failure but its a horrible job to change. The easiest way is to drop the front subframe.
