Tool kit
I was considering putting together a tool kit for longer journeys in the berlingo. Nothing too big or heavy, just some basics to be prepared. I'm thinking a multi tipped screwdriver set (torx, Phillips, flat blades), a couple of spanners and sockets, a couple of pairs of pliers (needle and combi) and some all important zip-ties.
I was also thinking of taking a spare aux belt, a spare crank sensor and maybe even an upper rad hose.

Does anyone else carry similar kit? Any recommendations over the above list? I have a 1.6 petrol but suggestions for other engines welcome.
Hi - add in a couple of sharp (stanley knife type) blades and check what sort of fittings your rad hoses have (if they are Jubilee clips then fine, if the fancy ones that need plier type thing to undo then add in a tool for that).
I had an upper hose split on a car a few years back just where the Jubilee clip was and all we needed to do was undo the clip, cut off the knackered bit and push the hose back on/tighten clip.

Didn't have buggarawl with me so had to wait for a man who did to rock up - lesson learned.

If you want to carry a spare aux belt then you'll also need whatever sized spanner/tool to move the tensioner - I usually 'recycle' the old belt into the boot if it is not too bad for this moment - having said that only had the aux belt go once and that was entirely down to me for not replacing it.
That time I used and no problems with them - basic, cheap recovery within the UK (and applies to t'missus and ANY vehicle too).

RAC Members Card covers it all unless you are considering intercontinental overland trecking.

Personally I find a well maintained vehicle doesn't really need anything.

I only carry tools / spares on my 1930's / 50's vehicles.
