    The knob on one of the wardrobe doors has broken and I'm trying to find a replacement but without any success.
    It looks like this IMG_1957a.jpg

    If all else fails I could probably repair that one if you post it to me.

    Thanks for the offer Stealaway. I'm still hoping to find a replacement before getting the plastic padding out!

    What's the make and year of the van?

    The bar looks like the standard door handle bar. Cut it flush, drill and tap the handle. Machine the bar round and cut a thread to suit.

    Stealaway, it's all plastic I'm afraid.
    NickNic, it's a Carthago and I've tried southdowns who can only source the whole espagnolette setup.
    Thanks both anyway

    Camper UK in Lincoln are also Carthago agents. Might be worth a try.

    The knob itself will pull off the splines. Try a decent hardware store (trade) for the remainder. If you can't buy a part with the splines the square bit looks just like the square section used in domestic interior door handles (1/4" square). Obtain one of those (any hardware store or your bits drawer at home) then file the corners off the bit where the knob needs to fit. A drop of Araldite or similar in the knob before final fitment & it'll never fail again.

    Tonyidle,
    Unfortunately it's 1 piece moulded plastic but I have repaired is by drilling down the length of the spindle and tapping in a length of m4 treaded rod, secured with araldite. A bit tricky to line up the join but it worked.
    Thanks everyone for your help

    For a Carthego it looks like a cheap and nasty fitting! Glad you got it sorted

    Speve, You're right, I think this one plus the one on the other wardrobe constituted the 99p at the end of the cost
