    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this post.

    The Vehicle
    Peugeot Partner
    2008
    HdI 1.6
    170,000 Miles on the clock

    What does the part look like?
    The part is located at the rear of the engine. One of the pipes connecting to it is right in the way. I have attached a picture of the component to this post.

    I am in the process of changing the starter motor in this van however this piping is directly in the way of a bolt that needs taking out. I don't want to disconnect any piping of it may cause a problem.

    Thank you, please feel free to ask for more pictures etc.

    Its the famous Peugeot EGR cooler mate....you'll lose the coolant, naturally, if you can't swing it out of the way.

    Ah lovely! I'm glad someone could help me. This coolant should just be water right?

    Awesome thank you Burnerman! I always get a bit paranoid about taking things off incase they need to go back on a certain way!

    You're most welcome....if your luck is really in you'll be able to swing the thing out of the way enough to get the starter bolt out.
    The French do like to make things difficult for us :mrgreen:

    You were correct! I unscrewed a bolt holding a bracket in and I was able to move all the pipes out the way just about! Thank you!
