Hi all thanks for all the help from this great site.

I have a new problem before i start the work needing some info.

My lower engine mount needs replaced from what i can see the drive shaft goes through the mount dose the drive shaft need to come of with it?or is there away of avoiding that.

2nd prob is a gearbox oil leak from breather cap on top i've replaced that but still leaking. I'm wondering if Citroen dealer over filled oil when it was in for a clutch assembly around year ago.

Thanks all any help would be great.

I'm using on screen keyboard so sorry if any errors.

matt.

There are 5 variants of the 1.6 HDi engine so what year is the car?

Ideally PM me your Vin and I'll see what I can find out.

Can't find any Technical Docs other than those for removing the engine and gearbox assembly complete and non of those mention removing a driveshaft to release an engine mounting.

I believe I need to replace the same mount on my car too(same eng/trans as yours) hopefully someone has the answer, as I shudder to think what an aussie dealer will charge for part and fitting- if it cant be sorted out through here.

Hi, well turns out it is the rear lower engine mount but have not sorted yet

Dealer wants £80 for the part then to fit they want and extra £100. but I'll fit it myself but it's getting the part. I have looked on ebay to no luck, only dealer seems to have the part I need :9 so might have to order one from them after all

Hmmm... I'm looking at having my lower engine mount changed as I was getting quite a bit of judder and vibration, despite a recent-ish clutch. I've had the top mount done already, but the lower mount seems like a bigger job (for the reasons discussed above – the driveshaft passes through the mount).

To complicate matters, it seems like the lower mount is a dealer only part, according to my local friendly independent – I'll have to order it from Citroen. Question is, do I have to order the whole mount, or is it possible just to get a replacement bush and press it into the original casting?

OK, so the dealer's quoted me £90 inc VAT for the part (it's not possible to get the bushes separately, you have to buy the whole casting). Fitting at the dealership is £150 plus VAT so I'll see what my local independent can come up with.

Not cheap. If you are fitting it youself than giving a sign to me I will search a video about it.
