2000 Bongo V6 Petrol 2500cc AFT

Post by Sculliver » Sat Sep 05, 2020 9:57 am

Hi

My beloved Bongo has now been recovered from France, having broken down while travelling, and I suspect the Timing Belt is the culprit.

Any ideas on how much I could expect to sell this for?

The rest of the van is in good shape with no rust.

Located in Bournemouth.

Cheers

Is it not worth sticking a belt on it first?
You may want keep it then anyhow would be worth more as a runner.

Thanks for the reply Bongolia.

I’m reluctant to spend much more cash on it but am having a second and third opinion.

As the timing belt failed as I was driving through France, I expect that the damage is pretty bad and to get it running will be costly.

Any ideas from where I can buy a timing belt?

There a non-interference engine, but some one has measured it and its very fine but provided there are no dropped valves then you should be OK.
