Do you own a B9 Citroen Berlingo Multispace/van or Peugeot Partner Teepee/Van? Maybe you're thinking about buying one of these French MPVs? Wondering if the Mini is a good, reliable car? Crash safety experts Euro NCAP awarded the Citroen Berlingo three stars out of five overall in 2014, while Citroen as a brand hasn't performed that well in Auto Express's previous Driver Power owner satisfaction surveys, which rate cars for reliability and running costs among others.
You can save yourself lots of money by carrying out maintenance and repairs on your own car, and Haynes' Owners Workshop Manual for the Mk2 Berlingo Multispace and van and Partner Teepee and van (2008 - 2016) shows you how to perform basic jobs such as checking the tyre pressures, fluid levels and changing the wiper blades as well as more advanced procedures such as fitting a new alternator and changing the water pump.

Buyer’s guide: the Citroen Berlingo/Peugeot Partner Mk2 story
The M49 Berlingo and Partner were introduced into the UK in 1996 as purpose-built Vans available in 600kg or 800kg payloads. To increase the appeal of the range, the Berlingo Multispace MPV was introduced in mid-1998. The Multispace is mechanically identical to the Van version but with the addition of rear seats, side windows and additional interior trim.
Initially, all models were available only in three-door format, but in mid-1999, the option of a sliding side door on the right-hand side was added. The Peugeot MPV version, known as the Partner Combi, joined the model line-up for the 2001 model year, which also saw the introduction, on all models, of a second sliding side door for the left-hand side. In the autumn of 2002, the entire range underwent a major facelift (M59), with significant styling changes to the front bumpers, headlights, bonnet and front wings, together with numerous mechanical and electrical revisions.
Engines include 1.4 litre (1360cc) and 1.6 litre (1587cc) petrol engines, and 1.6 litre (1560cc), 1.8 litre (1769cc), 1.9 litre (1868cc &1905cc) and 2.0 litre (1997cc), including turbodiesel engines.
This Haynes manual covers models from 2008, which are new B9 versions, launched and renamed as Berlingo II and Partner II. These models were introduced with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engine models were only sold in small numbers, so this manual only covers the 1.6-litre diesel engines. The engine is mounted transversely at the front of vehicle, with the transmission mounted on its left-hand end. All engines are fitted with a manual transmission as standard (an automatic transmission is available on certain engines).
All models have fully independent front suspension, incorporating shock absorbers, coil springs and an anti-roll bar. The rear beam axle has a built-in anti-roll bar, with separate shock absorbers and coil spring. Rack-and-pinion steering gear is used with power assistance.
A wide range of standard and optional equipment was available, including power steering, central locking, engine immobiliser, electric windows, electric sunroof and airbags. An anti-lock braking system and air conditioning system were also available as options, or standard equipment on certain models.
