Re: underbonnet fuse box

The missing blade has the terminal wire attached to it, until you lift the box out and turn it over to see what has happened its difficult to suggest what happened or how to repair it.

Re: NEW MEMBERS! Please say hello here!

Sounds like the head has already been changed and the the three way splitter has not been replaced (common thing) hence no bleeding tube.

Some people have added a "T" piece in the turbo pipe and added the bleed pipe there.

Re: Another '96 4x4 Diesel - rolling rustoration :-/

The selfbleed kit can be added to all models, all it does is replicate the 2l petrol pipe from the top of the engine to the de-gassing tank pipe 15-383 below http://www.lushprojects.com/bongopartsmk2/code=1500AA&cat=a2ajra0a&vin=&imgno=01of02.html However the 2l petrol is a differently shaped engine...

Re: Another '96 4x4 Diesel - rolling rustoration :-/

You might want to think carefully about "selfbleed kits" whilst they may well work on the 2l petrol where Mazda themselves designed it in, you may want to ask yourself why did they NOT use the method on the diesel and V6, the facilities and port on the de-gassing tank are all there, but sealed off. ...

Re: No front heater or starter motor

There are two cables; The brake interlock which means you foot must be on the brake pedal to move the Selector in given positions. Nothing to do with steering. The gearbox selection cable which runs to the gearbox, and it is this which might need adjustment for the inhibitor switch. http://www.lushp...

Re: No front heater or starter motor

In that case it sounds more like your starter relay isn't working, you have checked that your in Park/Neutral with the gear selector it could be the inhibit switch on the gearbox that stops you starting in gear or that the fuse has blown that feeds it, which is why your really need to test at variou...

Re: No front heater or starter motor

You really need a voltmeter or test lamp, if you say you bypassed the Ignition at it fired up then that does suggest an Ignition switch problem but to check you really need some basic test equipment.

Re: No front heater or starter motor

There shouldn't be anything involving both air con. fan and starter at all. Which type of air con controls do you have, old slider controls or the electronic controls? When you say the starter hums ? That isn't a normal report at all I've ever heard of, there is a relay that connects the power to th...

Re: underbonnet fuse box

Ah thinking about it those fuses are females with the connector on the fuse end and the blades inserted in fuse block of course. So is that one or both the blades are missing in the block ? They are might have been forced down if someone has tried to force a fuse in, the block can be released with t...

Re: underbonnet fuse box

Slightly confused then; The BLADES are the parts on the fuse, if one is missing then replace the fuse. The fuse connector (socket) is mounted in the fuse holder, and has the wire for the fuse terminated on it, if it is missing then what has happened to it and where is the wire that terminates on the...

Re: Intermittent Start of Bongo

Ah googling your numbers indicates that its rated as 2Kw starter which is the rating for the non-cold start type, the cold-start starter is rated at 2.2Kw so it sounds like the type that can be repaired.
