Rear Beam / Rear Suspension Citroën Berlingo
Since its debut in 1996, Citroën Berlingo has been steadily evolving and has established itself particularly amongst small vans. It is available with different body types. Both utility and family versions have a very wide selection of petrol and diesel engines. Buying a second-hand car is no problem, this vehicle is highly appreciated by users requiring more space. In addition to the more common problems with the rear axle, no major problems are known with other components. It is strongly recommended to check the axle condition when selecting an older vehicle to save additional costs. Here are some helpful information that can help you.
What signs of wear can alarm you
If the rear axle begins to show signs of wear, you will first experience poor driving performance. The Citroën Berlingo has a robust rear axle, but it is badly affected by the weather, just like most chassis of this type. As soon as the rear axle makes disturbing noises, it is certainly too late and simple maintenance is not enough. Used rear axles are not recommended. It is not possible to check their condition and may be even worse than the original axle. The most reliable solution is the refurbished rear axle.
Consider this information when selecting the rear axle.
When selecting a refurbished rear axle for a Citroën Berlingo, certain elements must be carefully checked.
- Family version, multispace utility version.
- Breaks and ABS – Berlingo rear axle is the same for all versions, whether your vehicle has disc brakes, drum brakes. ABS doesn’t matter either. There is no need to specify any of these.
- For the panel van it is necessary to specify the maximum payload, which is 600 kg or 800 kg. The payload can be found in the vehicle’s registration book.
