Default Peugeot Boxer 2.8HDi High Pressure Fuel Rail Leak

Took our 2.8 HDi Boxer based Autsleeper Pollensa into our local Peugot
dealers for what should have been a quick while-u-wait intermediate checkup
this morning, transpired it has a leak from the high pressure diesel rail.
Apparently, since our vehicle was built in 2002, they have changed the
design of this and the long and short of it is that a host of new parts will
be required costing 1400+, also about 7 hours labour to fit. And guess
what - the vehicle's three year warranty ran out six weeks ago and despite
only about 12,000 miles on the clock, Peugeot's "Customer Relations" don't
want to know as we are not the original purchasers.

My question is, has anyone else out there had this problem? I am keen to
know if we have simply been unlucky or if this is a know or common
manufacturing fault - particularly since they have changed the design. Any
feedback from the group would be welcome to help me decide if this is worth
pursuing further with Peugeot.

cheers
Roger

Okay mines not a HDi, but I had a leak on my injector pump, I took it off
and took it to a diesel specialist who repaired the leak on the throttle
spindle, recalibrated the pump and gave the injectors a full service with
new inners etc. 293. I spent another 20 or so on a timing belt.

Took about two hours to remove, and about 3-4 hours to rebuild.

Perhaps you'll be far better off going to a diesel specialist direct, rather
than going through a third party.

I'm not arguing with your advice to take it to a diesel specialist but
isn't the HDi a common-rail diesel? It's completely different from the
older diesels and I wouldn't advise anybody to mess with it - the
pressure in the common rail is a lot of psi, sufficent to inject
poisonous diesel through your skin.

You are quite right on common rails and pressures (pressures
are high in any injection system)

I did finish off with "Perhaps you'll be far better off going to a
diesel specialist direct, rather than going through a third party."

At least going direct, he's not going to pay a mark up )

I would start asking the question "Was there a recall for this known fault
and if so why was my vehicle not recalled?" Second question "If there was no
recall for this "dangerous fault" (any fault with leaking fuel is dangerous)
has the motoring press reported about it". If there was a recall, there is a
separate pot of money for it and it is not a warranty issue. If Pug UK don't
want to know, try Jeremy Clarkson, but if he wants to drive it make sure
there are no local swimming pools.
