We've also used it a couple of times along with one down on the beach with a barrier. After our m/h went into limp-home mode in Millau, we trundled slowly to Narbonne Fiat Garage. They diagnosed the throttle valve and ordered one with the the instruction to come back in two days for fitting. This is after Arnold Clark in Elgin had definetly repaired it after having van for two weeks with only 600 miles on the clock.
We ran about locally including Carcassone and stayed at the Aire and also one on the beach with barrier.
We asked at the garage how long to change it out and were told 2hours. Went to Carrefour, had a coffee and returned 1 and a half hours later and they had changed it but now EGR fault. Come back in a couple of days and new EGR fitted but didn't clear the light or limp home mode. Downloaded new software to ECU and that did the trick.
Whilst there, a British couple were replacing the exhaust on their van which had been previously owned by Nigel Mansell who had tweaked the engine a bit!!
Where are you now Jean?
It won't be long until a wee while now.
