    Default Fitting times for inlet manifold (CDTI)

    Been told this morning by Lookers Vx that the fitting time for the inlet manifold on my CDTI Signum engine will take about 10 hours.
    That seems a massive amount of time to fit a part. Is it really that complicated to fit?

    What is it that causes the original part to fail? Is it a design fault, as I have been informed that the new parts are modified from the old manifold.

    Hopefully getting it back on thursday in a driveable condition this time!

    Your input is appreciated!

    I (think)... They start to fold back with constant opening / closing. Thus making them leak in a way???

    Free bump if am wrong

    Its a good job this happened when it was still in warranty (only valid until May this year!)
    Could have been seriously expensive to fix if happened after that.
    Hopefully it'll be like a new engine when I get it back

    I had need for a replacement manifold on a ‘B’, which involved the need for new stud inserts including ‘the stud doctor’ making it a longer job. Also needed a new cat as something again was forked. Who knows with something like this, once you start to dismantle major engine components?

    If its not right when I get it back then it'll be like a game of tenis - straight back to them.

    Maybe I might get a new engine out of them eventually.........

    I have been told 10 - but I may be surprised and get it back tomorrow.
    Am I right in thinking that there have been modifications to the new manifolds to prevent them from failing prematurely?

    Hopefully the rail will stay put this time and not break up. Should make the engine run a lot quieter too I hope!
