Re: Electric window switch.

The switch from the Mazda 323F is identical as Tony states, I replaced mine last year. Try e-bay or one of the on-line car breaker sites. If advertised for a Bongo they fetch silly money but the one I got (from a 323F) was about £25.00. Tim

Re: Sliding door stuck shut

Great advice francophile1947. I checked some previous threads and gave it a few good thumps about 1/2 way up the door: bingo, the door opened and now seems to be working fine. One previous thread noted that this was quite common after having a flat battery so that ties in with our little 'lights on'...

Re: Radiator Needed

I bought a new rad earlier this year from euro car parts. Cheaper than Mazda and all running fine.

Campsites and pubs, Dorset coast

Feel the need for a last minute get-away (the beauty of having a Bongo) and hoped someone out there might be able to recommend a campsite somewhere on the Dorset coast, Swanage/Weymouth area (ish) within walking distance of a half decent pub. Any suggestions?

Re: Drivers window switch replacement

Door switch from 323F of similar year (1997) was an exact fit when i replaced mine last year and less than half price of 'bongo' switch, worth a search on breakeryard type web sites or e-bar.

Re: Where to source a radiator?

I bought a replacement rad from Euro Car Parts last year. Exact match to the original, 2 yr warantee and the van runs fine. A lot cheeper than the Mazda rad.

Re: How to change the Thermostat

I found it easier to remove the dipstick tube which gives a bit more room to get at the other thermostat bolt, once the dipstick tube bolt is removed just wiggle and pull, its got a little o'ring seal around its seat into the block as i remember which can stick. You will probably need a 3/8" drive s...
