    I'd dribbled some fluid into my new accumulator with it upside down before fitting. There was a little seep when I fitted it but not much. Only firmly hand tightened, but I did notice it was just weeping from the accumulator mount after a few...

    The 200tdi is a bit different to the 300 but I suspect the same applies. Ignore the glow plugs, they will start fine without. It sounds like you have air getting in or Timing is out or You have the flow and return banjo bolts the wrong way...

    Just bled it all again, no air anywhere just lovely new brake fluid. Following the manual word for word too. Something I did notice, the manual says to only use the lower 2/3rds of the pedal travel when rebleeding the front calipers after the...

    What valve is that? Pump pumps when I do the brake bleed. Out of desperation I'm going to do a full bleed again this morning. If that doesn't improve things what would be my next move? Anyone got a known good accumulator I could borrow incase my...
