Hello from Vancouver, BC

Sweet van! It'll be nice to have another all-black L300 kicking around the lower mainland. See you on the road!

Handmade Delica schwag?

Hey all, A friend of mine is a professional potter down in the US and just had a commission for a series of mugs with VW vans on them. VW mugs.png Pretty cool, but there are better vans to put on a mug. So I was thinking about commissioning a couple of mugs for myself with a Delica instead (L300, si...

Rear passengers seat belt (92 l300)

Is your middle row Captains chairs or bench seat? Do you need middle row or rear row? 3-point belts or lap belts? Retractable or static? (Yes, it sounds like I'm being an ass, but I've just gone through this with my own van- there's a ridiculous range of seatbelt configurations out there). If you g...

Spontaneous electrical issue

It sounds like an earthing problem. Check the earths on the rear lamps. GB, thanks for the direction. I finally got to poking around tonight. Did check the earth connections, but it turned out the culprit was the contacts in the actual bulbs which were quite corroded. Gave 'em a good scrub, and all...

Spontaneous electrical issue

Hi all, I've looked through some of the posts I could find about strange electrical problems, but none of them sparked anything for me, so here goes: No electrical issues in the past, but on this otherwise typical morning, I start the van, turn on the headlights, put my foot on the brake, shift into...

Where to get bushings? L300

I was working on a comprehensive list of bushings so I can place an order as I endeavour to improve my van's suspension. Perhaps a few of the parts I'm looking at are really not important - feel free to point that out if you note something! MB672091 x2 [Front Sway Bar Bushings] MB598097 x2 [Front S...

New member from Vancouver

Beauty doin' eh!? This is very similar to what i have in mind, although I'll have drawers in the back with heavy duty sliders. Anyway, how did you handle the ridges when building up the flooring? I was thinking of trying to keep the 2 rear seats but might just setup a simple sliding seat w backrest...

L300 For Parts!

Anything fun like a ladder with that one? :-D I'm in need of the seatbelt mechanisms for the middle bench seat that are attached to the van itself. Looks in the manual like there's the one on the driver's side and another on the jump seat side, both near the floor, but in my van I only have the driv...

I am about to build a storage/bed frame unit in my van, but would like it to accommodate a replacement middle bench seat, once I find one (any ideas??). I have ...
