Hello all!

Big Grin 
Hello all,

I have just bought my first Berlingo and I need to do a couple of things to it but as I have little knowledge on them at the moment I thought I'd join the forum to see what Help, hints & Tricks I could pick up off you lovely people Big Grin

So a little about my Berlingo, Its a Mk1, 2002, 1.8D, Multispace that the last owner had used as a works van (at least that's what the boot told me with the 10inch of brick dust lol) so I think as its a little tatty I'm going to Rat Look her, I know its not everyone's taste but I'd rather put the money into a nice set of wheels, new interior and maintaining the engine.

Any how I hope I haven't bored you to much Tongue and look forward to chatting to you all.

Cheers,
Phil

Hello Phil and welcome to the Forum.

Not sure what rat image is but it sounds like you'll be spending some money to do it .... might I suggest a fresh mot before opening the wallet too far in case you have impending bills coming your way.

Hiya Geoff,
I put it through a new MOT yesterday it only needed a anti roll bar link which is now done so fingers crossed no surprises for a little while.

The Rat image is where u get a old battered car/van and put other parts/Modified parts on that are brand new,
A bit like Old n Scruffy vs Shiny & New (just thought I'd fill u in so u know what look I'm going for lol)

Thanks for the Welcome

Hello Ron,
I'm going to give it a good service and get the belts changed for piece of mind, I've always used Halfords own oils and never had an issue or do you recommend something better?
