Leaking fuel and New rear shocks
#1
Hi guys.

My 2001 1.9D Berlingo passed it's MOT last month with a couple of advisories (couple of tyres, and the driver's side rear shock absorber). The van was struggling to start and I was advised to change the glow plugs, which I did myself, and no more starting issues.

Since changing the glow plugs I've been smelling fuel when I finish driving and leave the vehicle, or if I have the heaters on. I checked today and there's a cable exposed that when the engine is running drips fuel. I've took the engine apart the same way I did the glow plugs and can't find where this cable has come from so I can reconnect it. I didn't intentionally pull it out so it must've happened while changing plugs.

Also I had the garage change the two rear shock absorbers. Since being changed when I hit a bump in the road there's a banging from the shocks and the van seems very bouncy like a water bed. The garage said this is correct for 200-300 miles as there's no springs with this model. Does anyone know if this is correct?

Thanks for your time reading my post and any responses would be much appreciated

Sorry I can't identify the part but it looks like a pipe has broken off some plastic connector. You need to have a good look for anything you have disturbed doing the glow plugs.

Similar thing happened to myb m49 1.4 but it was the plastic brake booster nipple over the back of the intake manifold.
All I did was dremel it out and tap it to accept a new 1/4" brass barb

Damper issue doesn't sound normal to me, I've fitted a few over the years to a variety of vehicles and never had that problem. The method of fitting used to be fully extending and compressing the dampers several times before attaching them to the vehicle.
That was with oil filled units which I believe your vehicle has ?

Update:

Sorted fuel leak. The broken pipe had snapped off from the lid of the fuel filter housing. A trip to a local scrap yard I sourced the lid and replaced, no more fuel problems.
