Diesel heater repair

Post by Gingermagic »

Hi All,

When we bought our T25, a few months ago, the previous owner told us that it had a diesel heater, but that it didn't work. He had never used it, but thought that the problem was just missing pipework underneath.

Here are some photographs of what I currently have ...

^ This piece was just dangling when we got the van. I attached it with a few cable ties to protect it better.

I assume that it's almost impossible to make suggestions based on these photographs.

If I'm wrong, I'd love to hear what you'd suggest!

If I'm right, what would you do next? Is this worth trying to repair, or is it likely to cost hundreds of pounds?

Thanks,
Damian

don't have a heating system in mine but looks like you may have something similar to this fitted or partially fitted.

Looks like someone has disconnected the fuel lines, reconnect them and see if it runs an hour at most and a few feet of pipe

That is your pump .

That is your fuel line zip tied to the exhaust ( it’ll melt if it was running ) , it should connect to the above pump , and that could well be the pumps power feed with it

Chinese fuel pump, Chinese exhaust, not an Eberspacher connector, I should think that it is a Chinese Airtronic knock off.
