My Citroen Dispatch 1.6 hdi has an indicator stalk fault, when I touch it the headlights come on. If I touch it at the base the lights won`t come on, I have found that if you touch the very tip and gently move it about the lights come on. I wondered if it is possible to take off the first part of the stalk because I think that is where the problem lies? Thank you

Anyone able to shed any light on a locking problem with a 2007 Dispatch? The key fob won't operate the central locking as the drivers door is sensing it is still open despite being firmly shut.

Hi, been having problems with my wipers on my dispatch, It started with a clunking noise under the bonnet, then wipers struggled to move across screen, then they stopped working but would just judder all the time when parked, I would lock the van and they would still be juddering then they would stop, when I unlock the van the wipers would start clunking again. The wipers would work the odd time but really slowly make their way across the screen sometimes stopping half way. I've just change the motor they still don't work, they just jerk a little when I turn them on, think their even worse now. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks in advance Phil.
In case anyone else has had this wiper problem which I mentioned on my last post I though I would post what the problem was. It was the wiper mechanism ie the part that the wipers fix too, I removed this from the van to find one part of it(drivers side) was totally seized up. Normally this would be easy to take apart but as it was seized I soaked in oil for a while then got it in the vice and got the hammer out, this did the trick, I cleaned it up and give it a generous dollop of grease and put it together again problem solved or so I thought... I had to hit it that hard the end of the bolt which I had to hit to get it apart is bent out of shape so vans all back together now but my nut won't go on to hold the wiper on arrrrggghh, I'm going to try and cut this bit off tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed I still have enough thread to get the bolt on.

My 1.6 HDI Starter playing up last week. at first it wouldn't turn over until the 3rd or 4th turn of the key, then it worked fine for a couple of days but now it wont turn over at all, had to bump start it to get it home, there is a little warning light on now and it looks like a mobile phone or maybe more like the android symbol with 2 little lines where its ears would be, in anticipation of your help I thank you.

Hi, my 2011 Citroen Dispatch had a fuel pump replaced at a local garage, now it won`t idle after starting. Seems fine when running through all gears. The garage are now saying it could be the new pump I supplied (recon pump) and after sending this off for testing (against my wishes) it seems nothing is wrong. I questioned the original decision with the fuel pump as I have had severe issues with the EGR valve, and after the new pump was fitted (again without listening to me) it turns out the EGR was in fact faulty. Was told by mechanic that the pump was definately goosed and it would be fine after he installed a new one. I`m not sure what to do now, I have lost confidence in this garage and the bill seems to be increasing drastically now as he`s faffing around trying to resolve the issue. Does anyone have any clues please? Thanks
