Sassy - 2.0hdi Multispace Desire
#1
Howdy folks. This is Sassy, my recently purchased Berlingo  The name follows our families tradition of using the reggie plate to make a name. And to be fair, she can get a bit sassy with that 2.0  :Smile

[img]<a href=[/img][Image: IMG-20181028-095509.jpg]" />

I'm a courier by day, so a great vehicle for my needs. 

Only cost me £650 with 12 months mot. Droplinks and breaks were done for the test, so that's a bit of a bonus. 157000 on the clock. Previous owner had anti stonechip applied as well. I just hope it wasn't a bodge to cover up a rotten sill......... 

No service history, so belt and w/pump will be done as soon as funds allow.

Bad points - no heater/blower. Nada. Will be looking at this today. 
Drivers side headlight seems to have drooped and I can hear the light adjustment motor running constantly.
Radio - fitted my pioneer Bluetooth unit, and while it works, it has the common issue of not switching off with the key, then power save kicks in and switches it off hard. Wipes the memory  so I have to listen to the intro of the same darn song every time I switch it on.

Heavy clutch - And it slips a wee bit if you give it the beans at low speed. This will unfortunately have to wait a wee bit. I've compensated a little by adjusting the throttle cable, so I'm a bit less likely to give it full welly.
Crazed paint on the bonnet - this will be getting the flat black/roller treatment. 
Indicator stalk - I have elastic bands wrapped around the steering column and a to the stalk, so that it (most of the time) returns to the off position. This will be a job for later.

I would be inclined to do the indicator stalk first (comms unit) they have a nasty habit of flashing the main beam when worn out (yes we all know in the highway code it does not mean come on) but on the road it does and you could be flashing people thought when you dont mean it!

Is it better to replace the whole thing, or is replacing the stalk enough? Stalk can be bought new for £20 and looks like a much easier job to replace.

Interested to know this one too. Mine has a very sloppy indicator stalk and was wondering best way to change it

I've seen new stalk units and whole binnacles on popular auction sites. Replacing the stalk looks fairly straightforward. Replacing the binnacle looks like a pita.

There is a small piece of plastic that is spring loaded that holds the indicator stalk in place but ive replaced these and still had problems with the comms units doing strange things. So its a chance you take. If all thats wrong is the stalk being floppy i would replace this.

Watch somebody on youtube repairing one to give you an idea of what you need to do. This bloke bumbles through it quite easily Big Grin

So where does this bit go then ?

Can this part be changed in situ or does the steering wheel have to come off?
