Berlingo gearbox!!!
#1
Hi, Im new to the forum could someone please advise me.

I purchased a Citroen Berlingo recently then......

The van went into the garage to have the clutch replaced as there was a high spot, new clutch put in and it still has the high spot.

I have been told by a garage that I will need a replacement gearbox - it was leaking oil so the garage replaced the gearbox oil seal. 1 week later it has started leaking oil again. So their advice it to now replace the gearbox!

I have access to a Citroen Dispatch 1.9d gearbox - will this fit straight into my Citroen Berlingo 1.9d or do I need to buy a Berlingo specific gearbox?

Hi & welcome.What do you mean by a "high spot"? The gearbox has an ID plate to help with type. The need to replace it sounds questionable to me.Try & give us a better description as we would hate you to waste your hard earned loot.Confusedalut:

I'm thinking he means he has a high biting point.

Whereabouts is the oil leak coming from?

I'm betting that they overtightened the bolts when they replaced the seal...

The high biting point on a Berlingo is normal, you wasted your money. Every one I've driven the clutch takes off near the top.

Citroen dispatch is not a straight swop, the linkage is different and gearbox mount.
You can convert them because I have done it the other way, berlingo into dispatch.
They are effectively the same Be4 gearbox

My money is on them nicking a gouge out of one of the driveshaft seals as they rammed them back in, for the oil leak...

What ulysses said. I've got a tiny leak now that I took mine by accident when I was changing lower arms for the ball joint. End up taking the shaft out and ever since I put it back in it's been leaking. Probably will put a little bit of RTV silicone next time I'm under there to see if it helps stop it.

Unless of course you are having a major oil leak and it's totally different place.
