As a newbie Berlingo owner and forum member I thought I'd start with something relatively simple, I'll get on to the heater matrix replacement in a future post!
My 'new' 02 Berlingo Multispace 1.9 D has the common problem of worn locks. I intend to replace them with new ones soon but in the meantime have been locking the two front doors from inside and leaving the tailgate unlocked on my drive.
I've removed the tailgate lock for inspection and found that the inner barrel is so worn that it doesn't engage with the outer barrel so when I put the key in the barrel just spins round and round.
Somebody on another forum suggested carefully epoxying the inner and outer barrels together but doesn't this mean that any old key or screwdriver could turn the lock? I would only do this as a temporary solution anyway but does anybody have an opinion on this idea?
