Re: Overheating issues with a difference!

Re: squeal.

I might be wrong here but... when you say it makes a squeal when you accelerate out of the corner - could this be one of the drive belts slipping a bit under load - the fan belt sort of squeal?

Re: Overheating issues with a difference!

Jeebers that is bad news and so sorry to hear it. I think I'd be nervous about (the cost of) mending burned wiring looms and interior generally. For what its worth Trish and me bought an Eriba Puck last year. Its as easy as pie to tow and being small and narrow and 500kg weight it can go pretty muc...

Re: Oil filter

You can get oil filters from the club shop or you can get Bosh or Mann filters from Europarts. Select Mazda Bongo 2.0 Petrol as the search thing doesn’t recognise the ref numbers. Cost about £7.50 minus 37% discount this weekend.

Re: Central locking

Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve had a screw loose #-o I have taken the card off and there doesn’t seem to me anything mechanically wrong. Feels like lock and catch are moving smoothly. The noise is definitely from catch area. The key lock doesn’t have any electric so it’s all controlled via the catc...

Central locking

Sliding door rear door and passenger door fine, but drivers door makes a hammering sound when I press the fob. It doesn’t lock but the others do. Can lock them all using key in drivers door. So, is the hammering sound in the drivers door telling me the solenoid is duff or does it just need the mecha...

Re: Aircon control upgrade

No experience, but as you have a donor vehicle with all the bits and wires etc it should be doable.

Re: Frontswivel seats

I posted my seat base to New Dawn and they fitted the swivel base and posted it back. It’s a simple job to remove and refit the seat. Call them and ask.

Re: Leaking oil pipe

Looking at the picture the rubber hose doesn't appear to be pushed on far enough.You can see the flange it should go over and the hose has more of a kink than a nice smooth bend. The clamp is only just one as well. As a temp measure I'd reseat the hose and use a new clamp. Othyerv more expert than m...

Re: Screw holes in van floor

Probably. But a butt weld patch is best, don’t do overlap (joggle joint) because you’ll create a water trap and there are plenty enough of those already [-X
