Hi all, newbie here, just brought myself a 110cdi, have come on here for some guidance etc. Im going to be using it for my mobile dj business, i currently use a car which is just not big enough. Have been on many car forums in the past and find them a great help.

Its a 53reg, 110cdi, 149k. Problems i have so far which im just after general advice about...



when starting, somtimes if you stall then turn the key again the engine does nothing, you have to take the key right out to start it again?

One of the side doors the key has snapped inside the barrell how easy are these to get out?

i also have a different key to open the drivers door, this key does not open anything else or start it, so presuming its had another door/lock on that side in its history. I cannot get out the driver side as the handle on the inside is broken, i think its the link between it and the lock mechanism, is it easy enough to remove the door card?

Many thanks, sure ill find a few more problems on route

I have no idea about your problems, but the key things sounds like the door itself is replaced or something, and they did not change the lock mechanism to the old one.


But however, I just wanted to say congratulations with your purchase. It looks pretty too :)

If you do not turn the key all the way around to the off position, you will not be able to start the van until you remove the key.

Welcome..

1. If the van has started and then stalls or you switch it to the first position, you can only restart the engine having turned the ignition all the way off then it will restart.

2. Can't help you with that one... Sorry.

3. The door cards are easy to remove, you need to slide the interior door handle cover back towards the b pillar to remove it, then there is a screw inside the handle which needs to come out. There is also a screw from memory on the actual card itself near the b pillar. You will also need to lift the mirror switch panel out, gently and there is another screw inside there to remove. Once you have done that, it will pop off easy enough.

With regard to your drivers door, I'd say it has been swapped. You may need to get a specialist to look at what can be done, otherwise maybe a wrecker has a complete set. the other thing, install remote central locking.. problem solved until you need to use a key :)

Good luck and love them in silver!
