Berlingo 625 Enterprise (2015) Towbars
#1
Another Q, so another thread (is this the proper way?)

If I buy the newer 'lingo, could I take the towbar from my 2005 Citroen Berlingo 600D Lx and fit it to the newer?
I have been quoted around £500 for fitting a new towbar...

I take it your 2005 vehicle is the older (M59) shape, if so, then no I don't think it would fit [but others will probably definitely be able to confirm]

You can buy towbars for most vehicles for under £200 if you want to go the DIY route. A lot of the problems come with the wiring part of the job. With canbus and bulb failure systems new vehicles sometimes need dedicated towbar wiring harnesses which can cost more than the metalwork.
So where does this bit go then ?

Just this week my local Citroen dealer quoted about £2000 for supply and fitting of a towbar to my K9 van.  I didn't bother, lol.

I've considered getting it done for my van, however the issue I am coming across is that everywhere seems to say they're not suitable for vehicles with parking sensors. And mine has the irritating things. Also there's the cost issue, Which I've not looked too much into.

I have decided not to buy the "newer" one. It is, imho a terrific bargain, 2016 with 67,000 miles seller wants £3850.. Full year MOT, It has been neglected/abused, I nearly adopted it out of sympathy! Small dents/scratches, hooter does not work, radio a bit sketchy, fag-burns on the passenger (bench) seats.. Back door did not unlock, which I solved by replacing the key-fob battery! I took it for a "test-drive" and it seemed to be perfect! (I am not an expert) If any of you would like details, PM me.. (I don't want to publish someone else's details without their permission..)

My dear old thing (2005) is being repaired, for approx £500, and I reckon she'll be good for at least another year or two!

I've got a Peugeot partner tepee car, it's identical to a Berlingo car. It's got a towbar and parking sensors that are working fine.

My K9 Combo life had the towbar fitted bt the dealer for less than £500 and we let them do itas it was under warranty. Parking sensors still work

Since most cars have parking sensors there must be a workround

Good to know there's a possibility of working it out gentlemen. My biggest worry is the electrics being installed properly and throwing up errors all over the place.

Parking sensors are unaffected by my fixed towbar

Did my own installation and used a relay.
Other than finding where to tap off switched and permanent lives for the 13pin socket no issues whatsoever.
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top
