Such as check and clean the earth crowns and the connections for the coolant temperature / level control unit.. looks like a relay with 42 or 43 on it.

These are all on the inner wing of the van above the fusebox.

When everything is going well, chances are you will be busy enjoying driving the van... and not think to bother to keep an eye on the state of the electrics.

I suppose the flip-side to that would be...
If it ain't broke, leave it alone.

That would probably depend upon your level of knowledge and confidence, I guess.
I did both earth crowns and connectors, but didn’t think about the relays. Will have a look at this. Thanks.
