Berlingo Newbie
#1
Hello All,
I am the proud new owner of a 64 plate Multispace XTR Auto, and I have to say how impressed I am with her (my cars apart from a Lada some years ago, are invariably female). I and my wife are newly retired, and for reasons that seemed a good idea at the time have moved from Blackpool to Leeds just over a year ago. We came into Berlingoland after a disastrous year with a campervan. The 'van itself which was Berlingo based was fine but we are not as mobile as we used to be and there simply wasnt enough room for us and the dogs. I noticed that a lot of the taxis round here are Berlingos, which is always a good sign, so here we are.
Having successfully locked myself in the back, by the simple process of climbing in and shutting the door, I have solved the rear childlock issue, which is not very well described in the owners handbook. What is needed is a small cranked screwdriver to get at the rubberised screws on the rear of the back doors near the lock. I would like some advice on the DPF/FAP system. Mine is a 1.6/90PS diesel, so is likely to have one. The handbook says the fluid goes in a blue cap next to the diesel filler. Mine hasnt got one........ Is it user fillable or dealer only or sealed for life ?? Does anyone know ???
Many thanks for any advice.
Richard

PS How do you get a photo on this forum ??

Hi Rick and Bev and welcome to the forum.  Glad to have you with us.  Can't help you with the urea additive as mine predates that "feature".  Posting photos is easy.  When you start a thread there is an icon (a little square with blue centre) on the upper row of icons that says "insert an image" on mouse over.  Click there and insert URL.  Or, you can scroll down the posting area until you see the blue "Attachments" section.  Browse to the image location on your computer and attach it to the post.  Look forward to seeing pix of your ride.

It's an additive, and yes top up from underneath. It is very unpleasant stuff, so take full safety precautions.
