Parts No Longer Available

Post by Ian » Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:07 pm

If a vehicle is manufactured within the EU there is an obligation by manufacturers to make parts available for 10 years. No such obligation exists for vehicles made outside the EU, and increasingly we may find that parts for Bongos & fredas are no longer available. This is starting to happen for early models (95/96) and I will list here any parts we know that are no longer available.

Aircon Evaporator (Compressor) EPC 6150A Part S09A61J10
Catalytic Convertor (V6) 6600A J5032060A
Mudflaps Front S09AV3450
Mudflaps Rear S09AV3460

Aircon Flexible Hoses 6130A S09C61461A & S09C61462A
Torque Converter 1910C BV8019100

This is very useful info Ian and thanks++

I'm going to be interested in a replacement AFT roof rubber gasket/seal before long. It will be interesting to see if they are still available.

So I'm about to buy another Bongo, but this does hit home that Bongos are a dying breed. Hmmmm...

Really? I thought I heard once it was the same autobox as fitted to London taxis. Urban myth? What's the workaround, short of a complete autobox from a breaker?

Don't they just refurbish old ones? What would make this thread really interesting is if a workaround could be posted for each no long available part. Otherwise, peeps might feel a sense of (unjustified?) hopelessness :? :cry: 8)

Yes the trend is/was to use refurbished injector pumps, the price of a new IP would make your wallet cringe..

Aircon O rings added to list. Which could be a hassle.

Really? I'd hoped these might be a standard item and not specific to Bongo? Anyone care / able to comment?

We would need to know the diameter and thickness I guess, along with profile if not circular ?
