Re: heater fan! caput

Hi Dave!! Thanks soo much for the pictures and extensive info!!!

Bongo wont start/auto box/switch?

Hi all.. it seems the bongo sometimes will not start, except when you put the foot on the brake and run through from park to drive and back to park, then it will start!!! :roll: From what i can gather through auto sparky mates could be a switch on the gearbox somewhere,that may need cleaning or repl...

Re: Coolant Pressure..

So in Laymans terms a cold pressure test he used is unreliable when using a pressure gauge on the coolant expansion tank??? No visable signs of leaks anywhere.. UV additives will have to ask around there but dont fancy my chances.. Carnt even get front brake discs or front rear lower wishbone bushes...
