I have the same problem with my Doblo 04 model 3 years back. Managed to narrow down to the rear anti roll bar bushes. Since I couldn't get any parts in this part of the world I got my mechanics to modify the bushes....everything back to normal then. Hope it helps.

Re: 2010 doblo cargo noisy rear suspension

I have an '03 Doblo which I bought second hand, at 23K miles.

On the test I noticed a slight light knock from the rear. It was a failed damper, and was replaced, with its pair, for free. It was apparently part of a known faulty consignment.

Ditto, just outside the warranty, the front top end suspension bearing. They replaced these two as well - another faulty consignment - but this time I had to meet half the cost.

Needless to say my next car is unlikely to be a Fiat.

Did/do Fiat put out a recall notice for known faulty parts?

Re: 2010 doblo cargo noisy rear suspension

The car had been recalled for a couple of things (can't rememeber what right now) but neither the dampers nor the top strut mounts were included. I was told at point of sale that all the published Fiat updates and checks had been made.

The dealer told me that there had been cases of faulty dampers and mounts, but that these were not automatically replaced in cars from any particular manufacturing batch - because not safety related I suppose

Re: 2010 doblo cargo noisy rear suspension

It's the rear shocks... had them replaced twice in my 2010 Doblo. Second replacement set was just a couple of months after the first lot were replaced. All done under warranty. Been fine since at the back-end. Last month it was the front upper suspension mounts that required replacement for a front end knock.

Dobbie had done 40k when then rears failed and just over 50k when the front went. Not been carrying anything particularly heavy - but do have aux 12v leisure battery and Engel fridge/freezer fitted in the boot permanently...

Cheers,

Jon.

Re: 2010 doblo cargo noisy rear suspension

If its not the dampers don't rule out the rear anti-roll bar drop links. You would be surprised the number of mechanics whom don't know how to test these for failure.

The MoT tester should know, ask him to check

I know the Peugeot Expert suffers from rear bush problems, BUT it's not an MoT fail unless they are seriously moving!!

Like all cars...parts fail. Shock absorbers, springs, lower arms, drop links etc are serviceable items.

Re: 2010 doblo cargo noisy rear suspension

So 2010 models could be old shape Doblo or new shape, which is it and did you sort the problem?
