  Stiff clutch 2.0 hdi
Posted by: gammyleg - 2 hours ago - Forum: M59 Berlingo - No Replies

Hi all
I had a stiff clutch recently and it dragged on hot days.
Defied logic initially however it was tracked down to a cracked pedal housing and very dry clutch pedal pivot bolts.
I got a second hand pedal box and lubricated the pivots.
Massive difference

i want to fit a multispace headliner in my 06 van.
is it just a case of clipping the multispace liner in?
how difficult a job is it to fit?

  Partner 3 seat (front) conversion
Posted by: dumdum - Yesterday, 08:33 PM - Forum: Parts For Sale - No Replies

Just on the off chance someone on here wants an immaculate three seat conversion?

I am after an immaculate two seat setup and will be willing to do a straight swap with console and rear load area ladder which takes the seat belt and bolts in between the roof and the front of the load area

I am willing to unbolt/swap and do the leg work if anyone is interested?

Otherwise I will end up buying an immaculate set I’ve found from Scunthorpe an hr away, then selling mine also... just figured someone on here might benefit as three seat conversions are available for 100+ quid on eBay also just for the passenger seat

Not fussed about any money, must be very good nick though! Mine are 31k miles and I have just given them a good going over with fabric cleaner, no rips tears or damage bar a couple of 20mm switch holes in the metal frame out of the way which you can’t see in use

  A week has passed.
Posted by: Ikanpaul - 19-01-2019, 12:26 PM - Forum: General Chat - No Replies

Hi all 
A week has passed since taking ownership of my new van and thought I would share my views on the topic of Vans , now I must admit that I have a soft spot for Berlingo"s and have owned a few , maybe a few too many , of all of them one in particular I have kept regardless of cost as I like"d it ! . 
Was this a mistake ?
Should we not become attached to a working vehicle ?
When is it time to stop throwing money at it ?
How much does keeping it really matter ?
How much time has it consumed ?
Are Berlingo"s really so good ?

All the above questions I asked myself before making a purchase but the  simple answer was CHARACTER and that alone which has made me a long term Berlingo owner , 11 years for one alone !.
Owning a berlingo like all vehicles , means that there will be problems and lets be honest maybe a few more than some other manufacturers vehicles , but in the most part , particularly earlier models are easily and fairly cheap to rectify if you have the knowledge and tools to repair yourself .
Enhancements or changes that I have made to my long term van maybe were not needed but they did indeed improve ride/handling looks, braking , sound system and looks of vehicle but at what cost in terms of time and money as many of these changes caused a snowball effect , for example when I replaced coil springs I JUST HAD TO REPLACE , struts,top mounts , wishbones drop links wishbones track rod ends , I also remember drilling out the riveted on lower ball joints and replacing with h/duty meyle bolt on ball joints , oh and whilst under there I cleaned and re applied underseal , you know the scene !

Did all the work need doing , NO .
But we will continue to do such things as I believe berlingos do have character and charm and we believe they are worth the investment . 

It could well be that berlingos have an evil element which takes over our minds to control us , as last night I found myself looking on rightmove as I thought it a good idea to move so we could have a massive workshop and keep the old van as a project an maybe get some more as projects , what project the missus said , haven"t you WASTED enough time and money on that OLD HEAP , followed by a hurting comment WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE YOU HAPPY ?, 
I put this down to the fact that I had interrupted her tv programme of course , but I found it hard to sleep last night at one point I considered the idea of taking the berlingo to a friends field this morning to cremate it and rid myself of this POSSESSION or hold the berlingo has over me .


I will keep you informed and review my driving experience between old and new (nissan nv 200 , tekna 110) soon ,bye for now Paul.

  Idle speed.
Posted by: malgpz900 - 19-01-2019, 10:56 AM - Forum: M49 Berlingo - Replies (3)

Anyone got any ideas.
2001 1.9D. DW8 engine I think.
Idle speed has always been around 1100 rpm when cold, drops to just below 1000 rpm when warm.
Any ideas how to lower it. 
Did a search but all seem to be about petrol or later diesels.
Any suggestions appreciated.
NB. Never bothered me before in 5 years of ownership, but now it's running well though I might see if I can sort it.
