Xantia V6 - Just a little help with weird clamp

Post by Renanek9 »

Hello friends

When I changed the timing belt kit and tensioners I came across this loosen clamp near the upper engine mount on the passenger side. I never understood where it belongs from and I kept it

I found a photo these days and located this item in the photo, but I still didn't understand how it was fixed

I put it like this because it was the only way I found

I know it sounds silly, but I like these details. Who can confirm if this is correct in a V6 engine, could you please help me?

Sorry to bother you, guys.... but thanks anyway

Regards

I don't have a reference available, but it looks wrong to me. I think that the clamp should be holding the injector harness, not the fuel hose.

I will check my Xantia next time I am there.

Yeah... looks weird to me too... but my reference is the picture of the red xantia`s engine bay, and i´ve found this loosen clamp resting right there on the first time

I Found another picture from another engine. The clamp on this one, looks different too

That looks correct, but I think that the clamp that you have is also fitted and hidden under the main harness. I will probably be visiting my car in about 3 weeks, I will take pictures if it looks original there (it should, as I did the only timing belt change that it has had).

Ok, thank you so much!
