Well with the wife decidin she wanted a dog last year we opted for a Labrador. Problem is he's not getting in the Saxo and she's pissing and moaning her new'ish Corsa's being runnier by a dog that loves mud.

I had toyed with the idea of getting a derv estate, but Blackie had this Cat C beast for sale and I thought why not.

Damage repaired (rear light and a boot lid) and she's good to go. Just needs to be serviced, a CD player and the passenger side electric window is sticking when it goes up.

Apart from that, it's not a bad motor for the money and even included free delivery by Mr Blacklock. Engine bay's clean, four good tyres so what's not to like.

Whilst poking my nose around it's had quite a few new parts such as exhaust, clutch cable, rear shocks and rad. Obviously looked after most of its life.

Fixed the fob for the central locking:

One of the buttons was missing from the circuit board, so I found an old Saxo fob and de-soldered the button.



Soldered it into the board on the Berlingo Board and put everything into a new case and it's all working.



Quite happy it all works, makes the difference!

Not sure when it was last serviced and found unopened engine and gear box oil so that'll all be done at the weekend. Bought a K&N panel filter for £20 so happy days.

I didn't, when I seen Blackie advertise it I thought 'that'll do me champion'.

I can imagine whacking a turbo on this would turn heads!

Done a service including the gearbox oil. Took the seats out and gave them a jet wash, came up canny considering they've seen 100k!!

Also checked the state of the front end running gear and all is ok

Just waiting for the sodding log book now!!!

Here's to the next 100k

Replace the passenger window mechanism with a £10 eBay replacement and it's all good. Also needed some clips on a few bits of interior trim, glad they are the same as the ones in a Saxo!

Taxes and insured, done 150 miles and it was fine apart from the heat shield banging about a bit. Does the job!

Had to change a couple of engine mounts, gearbox one took ten minutes, but fuck me the rear engine mount was a fucking nightmare.

I thought it'll be similar to the Saxo, bracket off new mount pressed in and done. No, had to remove the driveshaft as the mount was part of the drive shaft carrier.

3 hours to strip it out due to ceased bolts. I need to invest in a impact gun ASAP. All back together in 30 minutes.

Less engine mount, more turbo.

Took the beast up to Scotland camping and the old Berlingo served me well until I hit a canny pot hole. Managed to blow a shocker which was a bit of a bastard, whenever I go over a speed bump it knocks like Muz's head board when he's at work!!

The beast



For the low sum of £115 I managed to get the below from Euro Parts in the sale:

Top mount bearings
Shockers
Springs
Drop links
Ball joints



Seems like over kill but for the money I can't moan, parts aren't the best quality but it'll serve, keep it running for a while. Just glad you don't need to remove the full strut to change a shock.

Plus I can see how good the electric impact driver I got fairs!



At some point soon I'll refurb my callipers with new seals etc.

Suspension was all done in the last couple of days. Needed a new wheel bearing as it was well wankered.



Fancy a cheap set of alloys if some pop up on gumtree or ebay.
