Replacement van door check strap(?)
#1
How much would it be/how easy to replace the check strap on the rear door for a Berlingo enterprise? Mine has twice now, stopped reconnecting and is just floppy. This time between 2 of us, we can't get it to connect again. I'm certain that it needs replacing.

Mine occasionally won't work and I need the doors wide open because my idiot neighbours park too close. 

Might be worth a fiddle before forking out on parts

Clean up up all mating surfaces of rust and gunge with a tiny wire brush then flush with wd40 and treat with sewing machine oil.

Work the catch back and forth a few hundred times until it is FULLY opening.(Imho this is the culprit as it only needs to be a tiny bit stiff to fail.)

Pull the strap right out with both hands until it clicks
in the outmost position-it can be reluctant.

Once you get it to connect then release and reconnect a further hundred times and it's good for another winter
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

Thanks Ev, I'll give that a go. I wasn't looking extortionate new parts, but considered a trip to the scrappy. This sounds simple enough and will give it a go. I've definitely got WD-40, but it's the silicone spray rather than oil. I take it that's a no go?

I can't get my comment to edit, but the catch itself moves very easily, it's just the strap that's acting odd.

WD40/gt85 is fine,it's but not as long lasting.
You have to grasp and pull on the strap with all your might to get it to click on the out position-normally the door would act as a lever to do this.

Can I use the silicone spray, or would it have to be oil?
