Heater Blower Motor Replacement

My blower motor has been acting up recently, takes some time to get up to full speed and squeals a bit in doing so.  It's had too many birthdays so replacement is my lock down goal.  My plan is to take the dash out, remove the heater box, replace the motor, replace all foam seals and change to a PWM...

Re: Rust bubbles under paint

Mine was very similar when I purchased it in 2011.  Six years later it was beyond repair.  Mechanically sound, but the bodywork was completely shot.  In fairness I had used it throughout the winter (driving on salted roads) and it was never garaged.   In hindsight, I should have had any bubbles addr...

Re: KPH speedo failed MOT

Having MPH on the speedo became a mandatory requirement here (NI) in 2013 iirc.  Although we have government run MOT centres rather than private.  My westy had KPH only.  They wouldn’t consider stickers on the Perspex but depending on the inspector some would accept stickers on the speedo face.  A f...

Re: Relay 292, a technical study.

I know it is a few weeks since the last post, but I thought that I would put my spin on this. I will be using a non-VW part for my lights on alarm. (Boo hiss from the puritans...) I am using a GM lights on warning two-tone "warbler". The sound is not as harsh as a standard buzzer, and als...

Fixed - Leisure Batteries Dropping Voltage Causing Split Charge Solenoid to Disengage

Set off last Saturday for a 4 night trip.  Day one and the electrical gremlins emerge before we even make it to the first destination.  The leisure batteries intermittently drop voltage causing the fridge and radio to cut out.  Make it to the first wild camp spot late and as it has resolved itself I...

Re: Eire Syncro 35

Count me in Paul for the first two activities, I won’t be able to make the festival so will go my own way after Galway probably. I’m working Friday the 22nd so will either join yous that evening or the morning of Saturday the 23rd.

Looking forward to it

Re: engine number

I can highly recommend Classicline for service and openness to non-original modifications. They were competitive on price and include a very good breakdown package. They didn't bat an eyelid when I talked through the long list of non standard/original bits on my van, engine, suspension, bodywork, et...

Re: Diesel leak

I think that I have a very similar, if not identical leak, going on at the minute.

What did you end up doing in the end? Replacing the whole pump or replacing seals?

Would a mechanic be able to replace the seals or would this be a more specialized job?

Thanks for any help

Re: Towns in Northern France

Bruges is fantastic. We didnt have the van but spent a flying weekend in the place, was gorgeous. Found this guide by chance when we were there and it was really good for some free things to do and some things off the beaten track too. Also for finding the odd authentic bar/cafe that might not be me...

Re: Speedometer Kmh/Mph-* Now With Group Buy*

Mine arrived in the post this morning, looks good.

Any recommendations or tips on removing the needle from the speedo? It doesn't want to budge

Re: Speedometer Kmh/Mph-* Now With Group Buy*

Thanks are in order alright, fairplay for the effort, much appreciated. Payment sent. I might be missing something right infront of me but i couldn't find any instructions on how to dismantle the speedo on wiki or the forums. I know its a delicate operation but would it be fairly straightforward to ...
