Pull the badge off and the rubber, clean everything up then put silicone around the holes on the flat bodywork. Push rubber backing onto silicone. i cant remember if there is fixings that go through the bodywork.

Re: Re-spray disappointment

We pay just under £1000 each time. This includes windows out and the odd panel repair. I'm well happy.

Re: not fixed!

Are you using the cold start? Some motors get used to starting with it when cold.

Re: auxiliary water pump

It will run on over a certian temp.
It also spins over as you use the starter motor, to stop it siezing.
Put your hand on the pump and get someone else to start the van. You will feel it run at the same time the starter is turning over.
