Hazard light switch

Anyone had this where you activate the hazard lights but only the driver side indicators flash?
Indicators all work as they should. Is this a common fault and if so is it generally the switch or relay? Thanks

Re: Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

Thanks 300. Dont particularly like the look of that if I am honest. Too 'glitzy' and also low too. I like the look of the original silencer really. Funny really me talking about originality when it is subaru powered 😂

Re: Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

Hi rollercoaster. Thee Subaru manifolds in my photo were cut off from the original Subaru exhaust so there is no way I could have done better than the manufacturer. I just had to shape the exhaust in the best way I could to fit around the engine sump and RJES engine support bar. Slowcoach I was worr...

Re: Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

Thanks I dont mind if I have the vw flange to connect to the silencer. In fact it would probably be better replaced with the exhaust sliding in to the silencer as I always found that area eventually started blowing due to the round seal inside being compressed and no longer sealing. If what you say ...

Stainless Steel Silencer for Subaru Powered T25

Hello I am going to make myself a new subaru exhaust from stainless steel as the mild steel one I knocked together (pictures below) is on its last legs due to rust. I will be increasing the exhaust size slightly from 1.75 inch to 2 inch pipe. I know that it wont make much difference in terms of powe...

Re: Big Blue Van - Full Restoration

Think the only similarity between your restoration and mine is that we both have blue and white vans 😂
Hats off mate. I did a lot of work on mine, not as concours as some on here but enough to save mine for at least another 30 years. If mine needed that much I think I would have thrown in the towel.

Compressor, air chisel and ear defenders. Air chisel has been one of my best tool purchases for removing old spot welded body panels. You can always weld a patch into the outrigger if it is damaged

I fitted a stiffener as can be seen in the middle of the inner sill on plasticman's recommendation. I didn't drill out the spot welds on my inner sill, I just cut along the floor...

Re: Fuel Quality and Knackered In Line Injection Pump..Again

Have receipts, guy in the petrol station sees me there a lot, only use that particular company for fuel as they are cheapest on the Isle of Man which may now explain my issues.

Was worried about pump cavitation but it appears that is the least of my problems looking at the fuel filter.

Re: Awning

Think people use that stuff to bond a high top to the van so should be no problem sticking an awning rail

Re: Has anyone had to replace the full side panel?

Look at 'My T25 Restoration' thread. My van originally had a window above that panel but I had a metalwork place make me a panel out of zintec sheet metal. Its not a complicated shape to make for someone who has a sheet metal folder.

Re: My T25 restoration

Hi I cut the lip off the back of my panel on the recommendation of Plasticman on this forum who is a metalwork master. It took a little bit of fettling to get it to fit but once welded and bonded looks fine. There was a gap under the middle of the panel where it bonds to the bumper slam panel but th...
