    Default CDTI 150 water pump / cambelt failures - has it happened to you ?

    Hi all

    Recently, the water pump siezed on my CDTI 150, which shredded the cambelt, broke the rockers (and maybe more - still won't run - being stripped down further now). Car is 4 years old, only into low 50k miles, full service history.

    I now see that this isn't an unknown problem, seen it on several forums and other sites like Honest John etc.

    If you (or anyone you know) has had this happen, could you post a brief bit of info here ? Car, engine type, mileage at failure, service history, damage done & cost of repair ?

    Just trying to gauge how common this problem is.

    I've also read somewhere that VX know about the problem and are advising water pumps to be changed by 40k miles. If anyone can provide me with a document reference number or similar that shows this to be true, I'd be eternally grateful

    Thanks!
