    Default Berlingo 1.6 Diesel fuel pump - expensive death

    Howdy all,

    One of our 1.6 diesel Berlingos (2011) has died. Turns out it is the high pressure fuel pump.

    It would seem that the dealer wants $4000 for a replacement.

    Has anyone else found a more economical solution to this repair?

    Thanks & regards,
    Rhys

    Really? Sure it's not the lift pump? Has the drive sheared internally or the pump started to digest itself with evidential metal particles?

    I'd be messaging "207CC" or whatever his name is who posts in the Pug forum, see if you can get a referral to his UK contact with lengthy tentacles.

    Addo,

    The van was taken directly to the dealer - so the diagnosis is theirs. I haven't seen the aftermath of the fault so can't provide any clues to a sensible diagnosis.

    Cheers,
    Rhys

    Dean and Dean Jr have one, assuming it's a 1920HT:

    PEUGEOT DV4VTED DV6VTED NEW Bosch Diesel Fuel Pump 0445010102 9656300380 1920HT | eBay

    Call them, they can knock off the VAT for exports.

    I'm suspecting they are getting a low pressure reading at the pressure sensor, but that it's not getting enough fuel supplied to build up the correct head of pressure.

    I was contemplating these ones (and some other models) the other day, thinking it would be useful to have a test unit that used its own mini tank and lift pump to feed into the existing filter.

    If its on a return basis from the uk check out the cost to return post, on the old one ,in my case it was as much as the deposit .after all the hassle it was the lift pump anyway .miss diagnosed ,low rail pressure .this was on a 2000 peugeot 306 ,it all started when my son fitted one of those electronic boxes [that tells lies to the computer ,seems the ecu believed it and shut the motor down due to low rail pressure ,,get a second opinion ,pugs ps as the fuel lubricates the moving parts in the high pressure pump the ecu shuts it down before it seizes up

    Thanks for the advice addo & pugwash.

    As luck would have it - one of our other Berlingo's was involved in an accident the following day. An insurance right-off looks likely, which will enable us to retain the wreck and utilise the parts.

    Regards,
    Rhys

    Did it crash into the Berlingo with the dodgy pump?
