1.6HDi 16v manifold cowling
Howdy - just bought a 1.6HDi 16v Blingo - that big shiney metal cowling at the front of the engine (i think its over the manifold) has a snapped bracket at the top causing a very load rattle. Is this easily changeable? also where can i find a decent engine diagram for this model?
I expect somebody will be along soon who can help, I only have the 2.0HDi so have no knowledge of your engine. In the meantime, you might like to have a look here:-

Thanks Coco - i'm deeply jealous! I had a 2.0hdi until a month ago until I got rear ended on the M1 at 70mph! poor car was a mess!
mrgreencar, hope you came out of it OK. Sounds like a nasty crash.

2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP. Persamos green.

It was! the rear end, sides, roof and floor were crumpled so far forward that only the drivers door would open! but me and my 2 year old daughter who was in the back walked out without a scratch! Good cars these Berlingos!!!
Both the cops and the rescue people reckoned the tow bar had taken alot of the impact and saved us- hense tow bar being fitted on new car asap!
I've seen them to snap at 16 & 14 in diagram 1.
They last one i repaired i removed the heatshield and pop riveted on a piece of 3mm material & drilled a 6.5mm hole rebolted on.
Hope it helps..:-)

Thanks Row thats REALLY helpful Smile
Have seen the loose cover cause a coolant leak from the oil cooler i think, cause by it rubbing against it. Try and get it fixed ASAP

Thanks - I will.
The problem is now fixed and very simply done. Took off the plastic pipe to the radiator which goes over the catalytic converter cowling. Just unscrew/unbolt and unpop. This gave full access to the broken bracket at the top of the cowling. A simple metal strap was cut/drilled and bent to shape and screwed/bolted to the existing screw and bolt holes in the cowling and the cowling securing point so no additional drilling required in to the cowling itself. The result is a very secure cowling which doesnt rattle anymore - YEEHAAAAAA:colors:
Thanks for all your help people - much appreciated
