Do a search on the Mark 3 section. There is plenty of info on schedules and procedure. Smile

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

I've had mine since middle of November and we're about to service it for the second time... so that's already twice in 6 months, mind you we got it brand new in November 63 plate, and it's on 23,000mls Tongue
63 plate Berlingo working hard.....

I've had a mark III since 2010 and it's done 305,000 miles doing courier work. I change the oil and filter every 12,500 miles (about every 8 weeks in my case lol!), and use SAE 5W/30 engine oil. Yes... I've done 24 oil and filter changes since buying the van!...it's a good job that it's a simple job on the Berlingo (if you have a pair of car ramps that is). I have a new Berlingo L2 on order with the "Look pack", and will post a pic of MY new "Work horse" when I get it.

@CourierJim

Have you had to change the turbo during those 305,000 miles?

If not, then regular servicing seems to be the way to go to protect the turbos
