Re: Can You Tow with a Bongo?

Toby, this a grey area which remains unresolved. It's been discussed on here before, see https://igmaynard.co.uk/bongo/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=73876 I think the answer is that as long as your insurance company knows that you have modified your vehicle they will pay out in the event of an accident....

Re: Knocking noise when lifting off

Brian, could it be the front diff? Here's an extract from the "Differential" fact sheet in the members area: We have had a couple of instances where members have reported completely “mashed” differentials that have had to be replaced. In both cases it happened on four wheel drive Bongos, and both we...

Re: Idle Control Valve on V6 Petrol

Teenmal. Thanks for the link. Have now established that it is drawing number 20-990 on page 1300B on parts catalogue, Mazda part number JE2620660. It's still available, and was also fitted on the Mazda 929. But it is expensive at around £280 plus the usual. Katka. I'm no mechanic either, but before ...

Re: 2.0ltr replacement starter battery

Same battery will fit all types of Bongo. You need the following codes. The codes give the physical dimensions.

UK ref = 249, EU = 068.

The Bosch recommended by Geoff is very good, as is a Motaquip VBY44. Eurocarparts keep batteries in stock, branches nationwide.

Re: Bongo Wiring Manuals

All the wiring diagrams, 1995 to 2004, have been scanned and are available in pdf format via the Bongoland shop. See https://bongoland.co.uk/product/wiring-manual/. Total file size about 600 mb. Or you can send me a memory stick and a £1 stamp and I will send it back.
