Recurrent BSI problem - damp solutions?
#1
Hi all. I have recently acquired a B9 Berlingo which seems to have intermittent BSI problems. Usually I can sort this with a BSI reset, but recently this failed. However, after a few days idle in dry weather, the car suddenly decided to cure itself. Yay!.
My question is this - I have noticed that the glovebox in  front of the BSI unit (according to the Haynes manual - I've never taken it out) appears to get damp in wet weather. As a stopgap, I have ordered some silica gel sachets (blooming great big ones!) to put in the glovebox in the hope that this will help to dry out the BSI. Does anyone know a) if this might work or b) where the damp is most likely to be coming from? Many thanks in advance.

The first thing to do is to open the bonnet and check if the scuttle area is clear below the windscreen. It is a know area for dead leafs etc.

Thanks Trevor, I'll have a look here and clear any muck that has accumulated. Absolutely love the Berlingo to drive, but I do need a car that is reliable!

Ours is an older M59 but I suppose the same thing applies. A few years ago I was having water in the footwell problems and took the wipers and plastic cover off from the front scuttle. It must have been kept under trees at some time as I got half a bucket of dead leaves and well rotted compost out of the two water channels where they are supposed to drain off to the inner wing area. Dug it all out and flushed with a hose and it's been good ever since.
So where does this bit go then ?

I can see a pattern emerging here... as soon as the rain stops (!) I'll get on with a bit of drain unblocking!
