L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

Sorry for the late reply. I visited a few places in US to get an estimate and it was somewhere around 600-1000 USD. It didn't make sense to me since the rust is from inside and its going to come back up again anyway. I am down in Seattle, but I picked up a few cans of the bedliner material when I wa...

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

Hey Phil, Thanks for the info. Thats pretty much what I did for the rust spots on the roof. I also use a rust treatment before applying the bedliner. There are many types but the solutions are mostly phosphoric acid that turns iron oxide (rust) to iron phosphate; a hard black material that could be ...

Non working L300 crystal lite shades?

Inquiring about the retractable power shades for 1990 L300 crystal lite; but looking for non-functional ones. Guess the motor burns out or something. Maybe you swapped in a working one and have the broken one laying around? Let me know if you have any. Thanks. Sent from my SM-T819 using Tapatalk

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

Hey all... I am taking off the headliner and a whole of stuff to treat the rust from inside and just seeing the mechanism for how the power shades work. Was wondering if anyone has manual shades on their crystal lite? Does such a thing even exist or were they all power shades? Does anyone have non f...

Replace factory stereo - L300 (best choice?)

or you could rip out the stereo, fit a 7 inch tablet in there and use bluetooth speakers that can be controlled from the tablet and your phone. the tablet could also double for navigation, watching videos, etc. etc. Haven't looked but there must be some bluetooth cameras that could hook up to an app...

L300 Insulation Installation and Sliding Windows

Hi guys/gals. 1) I'm wanting to insulate my 1999 L300 Delica low roof TD. How do I go about this? I've bust a couple round plastic clips (that I'm not sure how to replace) and feel I'm going to eff things up royally without some advice. The roof/ceiling seems particularly difficult. 2) How do I go ...

Any recommendations for a mechanic in San Francisco?

Oh yeah. It was pretty easy actually. It was titled in Colorado (needs to be a state to state transfer). I needed two manager interactions (first to see if I'm smog exempt, which a 91 is exempt. ) and the other to override entering a non 17 digit vin. The key was to get the vin verified at a certif...

Removing rear AC... suggestions?

So I did end up yanking the system out. I would say only things to look out for is the coolant in the AC and have it drained before taking things apart. Other than that you would disconnect the engine coolant going to the heater core, make sure you have clean bucket handy so you can collect the engi...

Liquid to Liquid heat exchanger for hot water?

Great into; thanks a bunch. Look forward to the pictures. Do you have two different water source for fresh water and shower? I'm taking the rear AC/Heater out so will be using the same coolant lines.

L300 Engine Preheat? No outlets.

Funny, I've heard of battery heaters, never a fuel filter heater. I'm in the market for solutions as well. Previous owners have installed an inline coolant heater - which needs to be plugged in (and sorted :? strange things). But I haven't really been able to see whether or not its effective yet. I...

L300 Engine Preheat? No outlets.

Run your inverter to run all of your AC connections!!!
Do you have this setup to preheat the engine? And if so are you heating the block or the coolant?

Rough, Smokey Starts

If holding accelerator half way down; would there be a concern of flooding the engine? No, that's practically impossible on a diesel. There are no spark plugs to wet, and the injection pump's fuel delivery is limited by engine speed. Holding the pedal halfway down only helps the injection pump resp...

Tapping the fuel line to install air heater

Looking for some guidance in tapping the fuel line in an L300 to provide fuel to an Espar D2 air heater clone. Can I directly break into the existing fuel line and butt a 'T' into it rather than tapping a tube directly into the fuel tank? I'll be doing the same thing in the next few weeks. Wonderin...
