This is my first post so hope it's on the right section. I picked up my 2013 berlingo 2 days ago and everything was fine until driving on the motorway today, I was doing 70 ( maybe just over) with the drivers window down and the back side panels or maybe the roof starting flexing and popping, it was making one hell of a racket. Surely this isn't normal, has anyone had this happen to them??
Frankly, what's rattling most in my Berlingo at that speed is probably my knees...
What kind of roof do you have?
I can't imagine any but the Mk. I ragtop to make much of a noise, really.
(I have one, but still... knees... )
Unless the modutop does something weird with the air currents?

Haha it's a lovely drive compared to my old Peugeot partner!!! I thought a bloody seagul flew into the side off me when it first happened, it made one hell of a noise. I'm not sure what roof it is, it's a standard new model berlingo.
It's still under warranty so will drop it into citreon next week
I've just gave the roof a bit of a prod and it's stupidly flexible!!
Leave the window shut and switch on the aircon. Get some deflectors if you must drive with the window open
So where does this bit go then ?
Cheers mate but I like to drive with the window down in nice weather, the thing will be going back and I'll get a refund if nothing can be done.

Way to go, if they make faulty vehicles then returns seem to be the best way to get the message across.

yeah my van does this, my mate who owns a body shop said squeeze some seem sealer between the roof and supports will stop it, never bothered though, only does it around 65 mph and above
