Re: My 'New' van

My mate did mine cambelt, he had engine suspended in the air, RHS mont completely off, lifting the van and dropping almost together with engine support several times....
Give it to mechanic and good one at that, it's fairly heavy on knowledge and equipment jobbie.

Re: My 'New' van

Yesterday I swapped the PCB and key blade to a new case
as the buttons wore so worn out it was difficult to operate.
The only real snag was getting the rivet out of the old one
as it was solid steel.
The rivet in the new case is partially hollow and takes a counter rivet to
lock it in.
It seems secure for now but if I have any concerns I'll put some epoxy on it,
just happy I can lock/unlock without carefully using a fingernail now.

I have two keys which work but I'll keep the SX9 blank in case I want a 3rd key
Apart from being cut, I assume it will need a transponder IC and need programming if I wanted to use it
for anything other than opening a door.

Re: My 'New' van

Look at you with your fancy remote locking!   cool

I remember having that flip out key on my Synergie and being sad it doesn't do the spring out thing

Confirmed that the transponder is needed to start the engine. Although if you take out the key-with-chip, the key-without-chip will start the engine withing 10 or 30 seconds or something. For what good that is

You will need either a Philips ID33 (T5) or a Philips Crypto II (T14). These are one time programable via Lexia. Best to pull the transponder from one of the remotes to check.

Re: My 'New' van

Thanks both of my keys start the engine so must have chips in I suppose
Another fob would be nice though but no rush at the mo, I'll get back to the servicing soon..
Not sure what Lexia is, is it some kind of diagnostic software?

Re: My 'New' van

Yes Lexia or diagbox is the diagnostic and config sw. Btw to add keys you will need the 4 character pin code which will have been lost years ago between trades :-)

Re: My 'New' van

I decided to remove all that previous lining out as it wasn't insulated and
wanted to have a clear deck to work from.
the extra few inches of head room is nice

I did leave the floor alone, too much faff tearing that up and it will be covered later anyway.

I also removed the crusty old roof vent, treated the rust areas and while rooting about for something to cover it with found a peice of translucent 10mm cast acrylic, Perspex in fact which is UV tolerable.

I measure the centre hole and PCD of the bolt holes and cut it out with a 2mm lip
on the wee CNC machine and fitted it with silicone and temporary screws.
I have some M6x20 SS button head bolts on order which I'll fit later
When the silicon has cured I'll give the roof a good scrub too.

the 'skylight' does help lighten it up in the back a bit too

Next Tuesday Its booked in for the Gates cam belt kit and water pump to be fitted and
I'm assembling the parts for oil and filter, fuel filter, air filter, thermostat and fresh coolant jobs, plus a radiator flush with the heater matrix getting special attention.
I'm hoping all the AC needs is a regas

Re: My 'New' van

Got the Gates cam belt kit and water pump done today
the belt didn't look to bad for 60 thou but the tensioner and pump
looked deffo second hand
I bought the parts for around a oner and my local guy did it for £120 so quite happy
I now wish I got him to do the oil and filter as I did it myself and it got a bit messy sad
Anyhoo, its done now.
Ordered a thermosat and will do the rad flush when it arrives

Re: My 'New' van

Yep, I'm lucky in that Paul my local indy mechanic is a well experienced guy who
has always given me good service at a decent price.
When the old Galaxy failed on some pretty basic welding the MOT garage quoted me £210
They played it up like I was some numpty who'd never seen the underneath of a car.
I considered doing it myself but I dont like grovelling about under cars too
much nowadays so I took it to Paul.
He did it for £40 then I took it back and got me MOT
Result!

It's so bad around here, that literally I'd pick him up, water and feed him just to do few jobs around my car/van and other things.
I know I'm saying, I know nothing about the mechanical things, but what I know-I know and best bit of my knowledge is that over here most of them are rip-off monkey wrenches, when paying money for the job to do, doesn't mean that'll be fixed, god forbid, there's something else wrong, they wouldn't know...
