Re: doblo sliding door

Re Near Side sliding door sticking.
This happened to mine last week at 11pm on Saturday night, and itís a Taxi.
There is a steel pin that prevents the door from being opened, when the fuel filler cap is open. There is a steel cable attached on the back of the filler cap operating through a pivot. There is a clear plastic holder that twists onto the end of the cable one end, and the filler cap pivots around it, this snaps.
To open door ;-
Remove filler cap, 2 phillips head screws, gently juggle cap until whole assembly comes out, you will see clear casing with a cable, separate the cable from the pivot, twist the clear plastic casing and remove it from the cable.
Push the inner spring loaded cable and get a friend to open the door.
On the inside of the door opening there is a rectangular black plastic piece with the steel pin in it, to remove it, flick the cover of it and there are 2 star drive screws in it. Unscrew these and remove the cable.
Now refit the fuel filler only.
The door can now be used as normal, but do not open it with the fuel filler open.
Let me know if this sorts it out,it sounds complicated but only took me about 20 mins on a wet Sat night, and then back out to work. It cost me £38 for replacement parts from Fiat, I have part numbers if required.

Re: doblo sliding door

I had a problem with my door also after giving a lift to a burly guy who tried to rip the door off! not knowing how the handel worked
The door would open but kept sticking in the closed position and needed a good shove to get it open. In my case it was a bent top door stabelizer arm topright cornor. I carfuly bent the thing straight again it now works fine but it seems to be made of very soft steel.

Re: doblo sliding door

I've driven many cars, company cars as well as family cars, fast luxureous cars and utility cars.
A few days ago I bought a low milage used Doblo 1.6 16v Malibu and sofar I'm very pleased with its performance, practical usage and even with its looks no matter what most people say about it.
However, I encountered a problem as described by donald.cape.
Today I found the left rear side sliding door wouldn't lock after closing and remote control locking.
One of the 4 spring loaded contacts at the bottom of the door was completely bent sideways, the soft metal nearly broken.
After I carefully bent it straight and checked the spring load operation the door locked again after closing. Bending might have been caused by jamming a bag or something in between door and post, which might occur more often.
This might seem a small problem, but to me not being able to lock the car doors means a real problem.
Does anyone know whether these contact units can be easily and cheaply replaced?

Re: doblo sliding door

Contacts come with part of door loom so need to take door panel of,but I usually just unscrew it & cut the wires & solder on new contacts with about 5-6 inches of wiring & tuck it inside door.I think about £14 for contact...wouldn't it still be under warranty?
