Re: Door locks

The tubular locks are a waste of time, there are tools available online that can open them with practically no skill whatsoever. The other issue is you could get the best hardened, drill & pick resistant locks but at the end of the day they are mounted on a piece of sheet metal a few mm thick. They ...

Re: Key Fob communicating to mother ship!

I don't think remote locking is standard/factory fit. :wink: Im pretty sure mines is factory fitted, there is no evidence of it being an aftermarket kit (I have fitted loads of them in the past). All wiring, connections & equipment certainly look factory fitted to me. I have now done away with the ...

Re: Door locks

The steering locks are (apparently) different between airbag & non airbag models. There wont be any difference in the door locks barrels. On that note has anyone found a supplier of blank locks so I can make it up to suit my key? Some scumbag (unsuccessfully) tried to break in to mines last week the...

Re: rear bump stops

I made some out of rubber exhaust hangers, I couldnt bring myself to pay the new price of them. Been on there for a good 5 years now.

Re: Key fob and central locking

Have you tried taking the battery out the remote to rule out the remote being faulty?

Re: Alarm going off.where is backup battery

The back up battery is normally located internally in the siren itself, follow where the noise is coming from but in most alarms the siren is sealed.

Re: Headlamps and what to do!

I have fitted an HID conversion, the downside is because the Bongo uses H4 bulbs the flash function is not very effective if the lights are not already on as they take a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. Thanks for you reply NTH, Just wondered if you could expand on the "HID" bit, is ...

Re: Headlamps and what to do!

Nightbreakers are great but the big downside is the lifespan of them is shocking, i tried a couple of sets in my other car & neither set even lasted 3 months (aprox only 30% of that night driving). They aint cheap so could work out quite expensive to replace every few months. Yes they were genuine o...

Where did you fit the tank?

Re: Diesel Heater and stand pipe

If this is like the Eberspacher/Webasto heaters the angle the pump sits at is important to correct operation, Is it mounted in the correct orientation?

Re: V6 Petrol : Noise from belt/pulleys

Im not familiar with the V6 but is it a solid pulley or dual mass/dampened pulley?
It would be an unusual thing to have to replace if its a solid pulley but not if its a dampened type, these wear over time & the 2 half's can start to separate.

Re: Diesel Heater

OK just started sizing mines up today for installation, Looks like im going to need the 90 degree outlet hood, does anyone know of the genuine Eberspacher parts are interchangeable with the Chinese ones? It doesn't seem to be an option for the Chinese ones.

Re: Diesel Heater

That would be great if you could measure it. I would have thought 8-5-8 would have been massive.
I will take it off your hands no problem.

Re: Stop table sliding along rail

I know the problem & feel your pain after having a couple of bowls of rice krispies spilled over me.
What I did was use a split piece of rubber hose wrapped round the rail & clamped with a jubilee clip. Doesn't look great but does the job perfect & can be easily removed again leaving no trace.

Re: Diesel Heater

I used a t-piece to pick up fuel under drivers seat (there is some talk that this could dry up the seal on the actual fuel pump i think so standpipe could be better into tank but I didn’t have any issues) Do you happen to have a note of the size of the T-piece for the fuel pickup. I bought a Chines...
