Re: Swivel seat plans

You realise its more than just a swivel required, it has to be hinged to allow space to get away from the centre console to turn ?
There are some ideas here, but not complete as you need to be able to lock the seat in position as well http://www.g8dhe.net/bongo_images/swivel/

Re: Front Fan .. Wits End

The one on the nearside only sets the Max speed, its the one on the offside that switches it on/off.

Re: Front Fan .. Wits End

You haven't said what year of vehicle, there have been some changes after 1999 which is the limit to the ones on line. The basic circuits haven't changed a great deal but I can't comment on loom colours!

Re: Engine fan manual switxh

What coolant valve ? The flow of coolant is constant thru the heating matrices front and rear, temperature is controlled on the hot air side with vanes in the air con mixing box. The flow of coolant thru the radiator is controlled by the thermostat which opens to allow cold coolant into the mainstre...

Re: Front Fan .. Wits End

Have you tested the Fan itself direct to battery just for testing ? There are two relays associated with the air con fan: Second from the front one or 3rd from rear (depends on how many options fitted!) G3-05 on the nearside wing, this only controls the Max fan speed when set to level 4. Main power ...

Re: Conversion upgrade

If you want fridge, SCR. new battery and EHU fitted (running mains sockets from an inverter is not a good idea) sounds like you need to take it to a converters to be honest!

Re: Bongo insurance

As being discussed on FB it can be a source of great confusion! First the Taxation Class is Private Light Goods PLG, correct. However the Body type can be confusing as a body type mpv is good. However there is also a Mazda MPV (name of vehicle) which is also an mpv, https://d1ix0byejyn2u7.cloudfront...

Re: Engine fan manual switxh

I really have a problem with this being done especially if they have disconnected it from the ECU ! If the fans aren't running at the correct temperatures then its better to fix the problem, maybe sensor ? Relying on someone to read a temperature gauge and remember to turn the switch on/off is merel...

Re: NSR Window glass

You remove the trim then unbolt it from the panel, it then pivots outwards to allow access to the nut for the glass.

Re: Cooling Fans and scavenger Fan

They should work together as a pair for any vehicle type.
For the petrol's they just have one speed on or off!
For the diesel they are dual wound motors with two speeds off, low and high speeds.

Re: Cooling Fans and scavenger Fan

No the scavenger fan only comes on when the engine compartment gets to hot, its sensor is under the handle of the handbrake so it justs measures the air temperature in the engine housing, it only operates when there is minimal air flow, like at a standstill in a queue after a long run or similar.
