Re: Storage box on a bike rack

Excellent! Thanks for making this video. We get quite a lot of enquiries about this. Now I can point them at YouTube.

Re: Glow plug flashing p1227 code

Code 1227 means the turbo wastegate failed to close. This will be caused by the vanes sticking. Have a look at this generic video about possible solutions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1Hvt2b7PL0

Yes, that sounds like a cracked cylinder head.

Re: temp gauge gone mad...

This from the Bongo Clinic on main BF website: Q: Can you explain what the different fans are for? I understand that there are radiator fans, and a scavenger fan? What do they do? (Barry from Monmouth) A: The Scavenger fan is the one situated directly in front of the engine pointing upwards, it push...

Re: Oil leak

That makes sense Geoff. But it was a long time ago (2008?) and I can't remember what the mechanic said exactly.

Re: Oil leak

I went back and had a look in my archives and found the following. The seals weren't changed annually, just the once in 2 years of ownership. But they had been changed before I bought the vehicle along with the timing belt. The mechanic who was trying to identify the oil leak at first thought it was...

Re: Oil leak

I don't have a V6 anymore. But a few years back I had the same problem. It was caused by a faulty "oil breather" which is an integral part of the engine block, not available as a separate item. And as a result the first place to "blow" was the cam seals. Until I ditched the V6 (for other reasons) th...

Re: Travelling as lockdown slowly lifted?

As I see it the main problem is the campsite facilities. Toilet and shower blocks would have to remain closed. Or perhaps restricted to one-at-a-time followed by an immediate deep clean of all surfaces.

Re: Central locking Stock

The E2200 may be the same as the "Bongo" but it is not the same as the Bongo Friendee or Ford Freda which is what this forum is all about. Having said that, there may be someone on here that could help with the electrical issue. But you might be better off finding a specialist Facebook group to answ...

Get The Bunting Out

Despite the current lockdown thousands of people have decorated their houses to celebrate this momentous day. The Queen is due to address the nation, Vera Lynn will be on TV, there will be a Spitfire fly-pass and 1940s style picnics in front gardens all over the land. Yes! It was exactly 25 years ag...

Re: Leak from Transfer box !

Bongospares are your best bet. Bongoland don't stock these seals although if you can find the part number can order a new one from Japan (big order being placed next week).
