New galaxy
« on: February 28, 2021, 08:44:12 AM »
Bought a new galaxy LX only 169thou on the clock really chuffed apart from a few niggles, rear passenger door wont unlock off central locking, is this the door loom ? It picks when it wants to start just trys to fire but no avail 3 attempts then it fires ordered a new 109 relay am i right to have done this? Also has a water leak, not bad but enough for an hour drive to get the warning up theyve said its a pipe under the alternator has anyine got a pic of said pipe? Have no heat so im assuming with this done ill get heat after bleeding the system.
Thanks for any advice

Central locking is most likely door wiring damaged or the small block in door socket pushed back.

Hard to say with the starting relay 109 always a good place to look at, also could be fuel draining back if you turn ignition on and off a few times does this help with starting?

No picture but from description it sounds like the thermostat housing hose which goes off to the radiator. I would be sceptical that is cause of the no heat though, best get the leak sorted and system bled to find out but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is an underlying cause like head gasket leak. Do you get a trickle of water back to expansion tank through small bore hose when engine is idling also does system pressurise after being on a run? (Hoses hard,gurgling through heater etc)

Yes check broken wires on all doors including tailgate, they all suffer with wiring breaking.

109 relay does cause problems and is not that expensive but does involve getting to the third layer in the fuse box, I think I would be inclined to check glow plugs first as you say it's trying to fire and as it's still quite cool temperature wise may be an issue.

Assuming the booster heater and electric circulating are not working? the pump is essential for the operation of the booster heater but also aids flow through the rear passenger heater.

Scroll down through the pics in the link below, it shows the bottom hose with the alternator removed, the pipe fits on to the thermostat housing which is held on by two bolts. Whether the leak is from the hose or the housing you will be wise to check the thermostat, also you can check the water pump impeller which is visible through the opening make sure it doesn't spin on the shaft or even broken off
https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-common-faults-and-problems/galaxy-tdi-alternator-replacement-renewel/

The cooling system will bleed any air back to the expansion bottle through the small hose at the top make sure this pipe gets warm as the engine warms up, you should see coolant flowing into the bottle from this pipe.

Hopefully you don't have any head gasket problems but see how you get on.

To steel seal or not to? Seems its coming from where the metal pipe goes into the housing under the vaccum bulb/alternator area

In this image it looks like it's running down the block to the right of the plastic tube think that pipe goes around to the oil cooler, maybe the tubes rotted away.

Yeah i cleaned the pipe off and more came out, its at the back of the pipe and adding pressure to the system (pipe squeeze) it sprays out, there is a seal there so unsure if thats gone because running a finger around it doesnt feel cracked or split

It looks like a rusty stain there as though there's very little coolant/antifreeze in there.

I had an Audi A3 where that pipe had rusted and split it wasn’t too difficult to replace looks easier on that engine as boost pipework not same set up as a BKC engine, looking at yours it appears to be more localised in the seal area though. Only way to know for sure is by taking it off.

And given the rust I would also check the little restrictor in small bore pipework to expansion bottle isn’t blocked. If it is push it out with a screwdriver and open hole out with a 2mm drill bit.

Dont suppose you have a link at all? I checked the restrictor (took it off and listened when squeezing the pipe and you can hear air, trying to avoid a garage for the leak but unsure if i had to take off the alternator ect

Sorry don’t have a link,it’s been a couple of years since I did the Audi I don’t recall having to take alternator off. Even if you do it’s a simple job on the galaxy to move alternator out the way.

What sort of knocking have you got?

The central locking issue is common and inconvenient but thats all
It took me a few goes to sort mine

If it runs ok when it does go, I'd suggest investigating the
knock and water leak first then when you're sure you have no
serious/expensive problems or you've sorted them.
look at the door wiring

Mine was due to a worn commutator in the motor of the passenger rear door
I stripped it down and cleaned the bridged segments on the commutator
and it's been fine since.

Those wires do go brittle very easily don't they. I have one in my rear brake cluster where the insulation is starting to crack and expose the wire too. Usually easy to fix but a bit fiddly and it would have been good if they could have used slightly higher quality wire really
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

Awaiting the pipe to come, dropped £3 when ordered, i cannot find any diagrams on here or in the haynes for this, i dont even know what its called apart from oem number, ive got a new stat to go in so will be checking the water pump and getting quotes on timing and pump to be done just incase, im suspecting more bad news ahead tho, i did 30 miles the other day it over heated allowed to rest and top up water roughly 2 litres and it fired straight back up. After running for a while the other day i noticed the return hose to the expansion was cold all others were hot, the pipe isnt blocked (checked by blow/suck and could hear air escaping from the leaking pipe) theres seems little pressure when hot and next to no pressure when cold, the leak is alot worse when the stat opens up, i get no hot air what so ever in the car just cold so im hoping this new pipe sorts it all out, it drives nicely (same as my old one) until it over heats (happened twice now) i will take pictures and post here in and in a new thread to show the process of getting to said pipe, im suspecting either pump or lack of pressure is causing the return pipe to stay cold and not release back to the bottle.

its not unknown with the diesels for the impeller on the pump (the fan like bit) to become disconnected from the shaft and hence doesn't get driven when it should do. I think the lack of return through the little pipe to the expansion is usually a sign of that being the case.

Right so all central locking done, passenger and rear drivers motors where rusty and caput so all thats done and dusted, as for this damn pipe, ive took off battery tray expansion tank unsure what the top pipe is, several water pipes fuel filter all plastics surrounding the battery tray. Undone one bolt on the pipe that needs to come off which was a 11mm :S now the last one pictured is an allen key and a pain to get to, got too dark so thats tommorows job
