Relatively common failure on Citroen 2.1 diesels as fitted to the XM.
Funny thing is that the 1.7 and 1.9 version as fitted to BXes, Peugeots,
Renaults and some Volvos are mostly unaffected.

Change the timing belt and within a few thousand miles you can almost
guarantee you'll have a leaking water pump.
