Re: FF Guide to the Doblo (Problems + Solutions) - Your Input Please :)

For the question of the radio coming on quiet and getting louder - I may be stating the obvious but in the radio manual that came with my 06 family, increasing the volume was a special setting that you chose in one of the menus? Presumably you can turn it off and just have constant?

Rear door Problems

Had a problem opening my rear doors, on unlocking them doors wouldn't open but could be opened with internal door handle, a problem for me when I have a rear bulkhead and no way to get in the back

Found the problem was a the cylinder that moves across to engage the door catch when you turn the key, found that the grease that had been used on this had become stiff and the cylinder became stuck

The easiest way to remedy this was to remove the inside door handle just remove three hexagonal screws and it comes off completely. then spray the locking mechanism with lubricating oil

Hope this is of help to someone as it caused me quite a few problems

IT WORKS
Like others I have had a problem with the rear screen getting all the water and sh**e off the road, on my dobby,
Ripping the rear wiper blade to shreds in the rain with all the crud
So with a little ( note little) bit of thinking decided that an airfoil to alter the turbulance over the rear screen might be in order.
So looking around for a wing type thingy spotted a palm rest from my computer keyboard,
Into the workshop pete, Found a peice of plastic to make the suport with, about 40mmx20mmx15mm, cut and shaped it to have a bit of bling-wow factor,
using sticky foam tabs these were attatched to the wing
And with a coat of black spray paint on, was looking very technical and expensive,
Well this bit of sh**e , sorry kit was installed on the rear, above the rear stop light on the roof, bearing in mind that it had to clear the door when openedagain using sticky foam tabs, Sorted
Over the last few weeks, 1000 miles, in the rain and spray off the motorway rural roads I have found that the window stays much clearer without the crud,
Suprisingly it has not come off,
So my problem may be solved on a permenant basis,
One advantage is the extra downforce keeping the rear end glued to the road, Got to keep an eye on tyre wear now, lest I soon will have slicks
Will find a way of getting some photo's on here somehow?,
Try it it does work

Hi Rich
No, use sticky tabs, double sided and just line it up to the front edge of the tailgate making sure it don't foul the roof, when you open tailgate,
A further design is in the process of construction, made from makrolon plastic, and will be twice this length, and see through
regards
pete

Ah, yes, sorry, you did say that in your op. I'm not paying attention as usual .

A longer, clear version sounds even better as this version might make people think you're a boy racer...maybe not in a Doblo though

I had the same problem, the grease on the lock had dried out and the electric actuator doesn't have the power to move it. It should be easy to repair, just take the plastic panel on the interior of the tailgate off (a few screws) and spray some lube on the mechanism (WD40 should do it - I used some bike chain lube). Pressing the button while looking at the mechanism should let you see what I'm talking about. If nothing moves, then it's however an electrical problem (I don't think it's the case). Greasing it should work and I don't think this is worth paying a visit to the garage

Slightly different problem, the actuator had popped off the lock mechanism. so it was moving freely but not actually doing anything. a simple fix though.

don't forget that as well as the screws there is a plastic clip in the middle of the panel that needs popped off.
