Inside Line: CES

by
  • Sometimes there’s a ‘whirring whine’ from 1.4HDI engine. This may be a failing timing belt tensioner, which is a roller bearing device like the idler pulley, but with a reddish rubber/nylon damper. When fixing, it’s wise to also replace the water pump which is driven by the timing belt.
  • The rear wheel brake cylinders have been known to fail. In some instances, this has happened on relatively new vehicles.
  • There have been some reports of watering leaking into the load area via the extractor vent, through the hatch seals or rear light seals. Within the cabin, there have been reported water leaks through radio aerial seal and passenger door seal.
  • Instances on the five-door models of the glue holding the rear door windows to the hinge eventually failing. At worst this could result in the window falling out. Whilst well used key operated drivers door and boot door locks may only last just over three years
  • On the Aygo, the parking brake calliper may sieze. This will lead to the rear brake disc wearing out faster than anticipated.
