Re: Removing roof motors

Every time I've had my motors off, it has been rock solid, so I don't know the answer for sure. Even when I had to do some brutal emergency repairs, pulling the runners off, the gas struts kept it level. However I know its been discussed that the gas struts fail. Best safe and sound propping it ope...

Re: Removing roof motors

Removing roof motors

Hi all my bongo has recently had trouble getting the roof to raise, it has gradually gotten slower and slower to the point of hardly raising at all. I am going to attempt to service the motors myself (unless anyone has any other suggestions?) and if I can't then I will have to source some new units....

Glow plug relay replacement very cheap!

Hi all I have recently had trouble with my glow plug relay which packed in and was draining my battery. After a search online and seeing the extortionate prices these go for I found that a Ford Ranger relay is an exact match for the Mazda Bongo one. Quick trip to my local 4x4 centre with £10 and it ...

Main battery charge

Hi all, can anyone tell me if when on a hook up your main battery gets charged or just the leisure? hardly used my bongo lately as I am always on a motorbike and the battery has died twice in the last week. Got it hooked up at home not sure whether that will give it a charge or not.
