Re: Gaining more legroom in the drivers seat

That modification would affect the original design of your Bongo. We've not been asked to do that specific job before. We're certainly capable of it. :) But its a grey area for garage insurance, like modifying seatbelt mountings. So we choose not to do it. But I expect one of the Bongo conversion bu...

Re: Gaining more legroom in the drivers seat

Re: Reverse Bench seat belts

Yes they do. The firms who convert Bongos to campers sometimes have them spare, as they remove the seat when converting.

Re: Reverse Bench seat belts

I want to reverse one of my benches so it’s back to back with the drivers/passenger seats but I really need to retain the 3point seats for the children. Just wondering if anyone had managed to do it and if so how? Its not possible to retain the existing 3point seatbelts, without adapting and weldin...

Re: Thermostat and temp gauge sensor

Changed plenty of these. No sealant on the sensor, its a taper fit. The genuine thermostat gasket has sealant on it. If its non-genuine, you may need to add some. Something to check - If you undo the expansion tank and air bubbles up, put the cap back on. Then take the radiator cap off and top up th...
