Berlingo in the garage at the moment No 3 injector was blowing plus nearside front wheel bearing grinding and clutch change ,typical the clutch was slipping but seems to have have been fine since I brought the new kit but as the mechanic has to do the bearing I thought he may as well change it. He also is changing all four injector seals I would have just changed the one that was leaking but he seems to think it is worth doing them all ? Have no idea on what it will all cost depends on how long it takes and what breaks off I guess,at least there is no council tax to pay at the moment so that should help towards it regards Jay.
good luck on repair costs Jay, hope its not too bad

got the car back it cost £340 for labour and extra parts not supplied by me (gearbox oil and the four injector seal kits), I supplied the wheel bearing kit £16.75 inc delivery and clutch kit £78.99 inc delivery he said it was a pig of a job to do the clutch it involved removing the subframe and stearing rack and some of the exhaust to get at the bolts apparently there was only a drop of oil left in the gear box so so much for it having a full service history ! any way good to have her back my next job will be to try and stop the oil leak from around the rocker cover and then an oil and filter change. The old clutch was completely gone worn down to the rivets and replacing it has transformed the feel of the clutch you do not need ankle weights on your left leg any more

There's not necessary to remove subframe and steering rack!
There' re a lot of space in a engine compartment.
I think he had to remove the subframe and steering rack to get at some of the bolts yes there is plenty of room to get the gearbox off
