Coolan/Antifreeze

I'm going to have my mechanic here in Peterborough put in a new thermostat I purchased from Rising Sun. We were wondering if there's a specific type of coolant recommended for these vans?? He's a VW mechanic & if you used the wrong coolant in some of the Vanagons, it was bad karma if you know what I...

Re: Wheel Alignment Specs for L300

Thanks everybody!! I got the specs on paper now and my mechanic friend at the local VW dealership says he's happy to give it a go. Even on a Saturday no less:)

Re: hey west coasters, any experience with these roof top te

A buddy of mine has a Hannibal Tent on top of his Land Rover Defender. The whole thing is wicked but very$$$$$. I'd like to add one to the top of my van. Right now, I'm just working on trying to get the rack and ladder for my high roof....and she ain't easy to find.

Wheel Alignment Specs for L300

Sup folks?? So I goes to get my '93 Super Exceed L300 in for an alignment as it pulls to the right while driving down the road. The place I use here in Peterborough won't do it because they don't have the specs and recommend the dealer as my alternative. guess what??They won't touch it either. And I...

Re: Hot, hot, hot!!!

Ahhh, bad thermostat. Yeah that might be something. With the temp gauge hardly coming off cool, I figured the system was working exceptionally well to the point where there wouldn't be much heat in the cabin if the engines running so cool. ( can u tell I'm not a mechanic) :) but this van is like new...

Re: Hot, hot, hot!!!

Right, the temp gauge on the dash hardly moves off of cold no matter how long I run it for. I just had a complete service at RightDrive in Toronto & they did all the fluids but I'm sure they didn't flush the rad. Maybe they just topped it up. I've only got 73,000 Kms on the odometer but maybe I'll l...

Hot, hot, hot!!!

Hey, So I have a '93 Super Exceed and I'm just wondering how warm the cabin should get with the heats on full. I hate winter and I love heat thus the question. Soooo, I've had it warm up to to 21 degrees on some of these cool Ontario days but winters not even here yet. What happens when it gets real...

Fiamma bike rack for Delica??

Hey there, So I've had many VW Busses over the years & now enjoying my first Delica L300 high roof. The last bus I owned had a sweet fiamma bike rack that directly fit on the rear hatch. It was hard mounted and the bikes came on and off easily. I'm wondering if anyone knows if these racks might work...

Re: Ontario fall meet

Yeah, we're camping at Bingemans Park which is where one of the big events is on Sat night. So it's conviently all in one place. The Sat night event makes St Paddys day look like a kids birthday party, real crazy. And there's a cool car show downtown that the VW Bus people are in on. They would love...
