Re: Hold light diagnostic code help 17/14/13

Is it a petrol Bongo? It's possible that one of the codes is indicating a problem with the O2 (Lambda) sensor. See here: http://www.philmcfadden.co.uk/MazdaDiagnosticBox.htm

Re: Fuel Sensor

Here's an extract from the "Fuel Gauge Sender Unit" factsheet in the members area: "The Bongo’s fuel tank panel (hatch), which allows access to the fuel gauge sender, is located under the carpet on the driver’s side, midway between the middle and rear seats. The fuel gauge sender itself can be found...

Thanks For The Poem and the Hamper!

Belatedly, a big thanks to all of you who bought us the hamper and wrote the poem that was presented at this year's AGM. Much appreciated! https://igmaynard.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/bob_poem4.jpg https://igmaynard.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/bob_poem5.jpg https://igmaynard.co.uk/wp-cont...

Re: Bongo temp gauge suddenly at maximum then suddenly fine again.

If it's not an airlock then it's probably the upper temp sender unit that needs replacing. You can get them from the club shop, see https://bongoland.co.uk/product/top-temperature-sender-unit/. What I'd do is get a Bongo expert to have a look. Tell us where you are based and we can recommend someone.

Farewell Harry Ashcroft

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of long serving member Harry Ashcroft of Cumberland (he hated the word "Cumbria"). Harry joined the club in 2006 and played a key part in organising meetings in the North West including Silverdale, Cartmel and Dent. He was a keen walker and a member of...

Re: Rear seats that go flat (to make a bed)

Hi Big T. Welcome to the Forum. I assume you are referring to Bongo Friendees and not Bongo Brawnys as all Bongo Friendeess are belt driven, none are chain driven. Also there is no such thing as a hi-top Bongo at the point of manufacture but some converters here in the UK add an after-market hi-top ...

Re: Funky leisure sun canopy

We use an Outwell Cruising Canopy. It's not cheap (about £150) but we have tried various solutions over the years and this is the best. It attaches with figure of 8s. We can put it up within 5 minutes unless it's very windy. https://igmaynard.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Summer-007.jpg Once erec...
