Can anyone help? I have a 2009 Citroën Dispatch van. The rear passenger indicator is not working. After changing the bulb, it appears the blue indicator wire is dead. Does anyone know if the fuses for these are run separate as this is all I am hoping it could be. The wires haven't been disturbed to break the loom. Also where is the fuse located in the box under the steering wheel or under the bonnet? Thanks for any help available

Hi' for sometime now, my headlights have started to come on on there own whilst driving! The headlight indicator light on the dash comes up too? you have to turn the headlight switch on and then turn it off to make it go away? Just last week on a journey from Norwich to Southend On Sea, it happened at least 12 time? Really annoying! Any idea what the cause is and is it easy to repair and how expensive? I'm just a humble decorator :o( Regards Michael Holland

Probably a faulty compressor. I had the same problem on a dispatch with 32000 miles. My van would not raise or lower. I tried every avenue to try and repair it but I ended up having to get a new compressor through the dealer. It cost me £1100.00 Neil from County Down

Slow wipers then stop in any position can hear mother running but will only move wipers slow or they jam any ideas perhaps relays but I can't find them

Answers

I doubt it's relays as the motor is running. I had the same problem and found it was the mechanism that had seized. The drivers side of the mech seems to be prone to corrosion and seizing. A second hand one can be brought for around £35 and fitted within 30 mins if you have the correct tools and patience. Nick Constantine from Kent

I have a problem with the fuel system on my Citroen Dispatch 2lt Hdi, there seems to be a high pressure on the return pipe to the diesel tank. The pressure blows the return hose off where the flexible hose is connected to the metal pipe returning to the tank. This has only started since the garage replaced the intercooler. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated as I am dripping diesel onto the exhaust. The pressure seems to be at its greatest when the engine is running. Any ideas please?

It's insanely difficult for anyone with hands bigger than a 5 year old child John. I tried it once and took the skin off my knuckles and 30 minutes later finally managed to do it.
