      Yes, you are correct. I can't say that it will fit your '93 exactly but it looks the same as my'01. There are two resistant points on mine, one when nearly wide open & another around half way.

      I am also a DIY nutter & I believe in the best for my van. I purchased a Polo that had the green coolant & there is no way of determining the quality so I changed it. I would change yours to the...

      I agree, probably brake light switch. This happened to my previous van while on holidays. Pumping the brake pedal when stuck would release the park. Also get any stored codes read.

      ElsaWin 4.1 on Ebay UK is the go. You will need Windows operating system, up to & including 8. Some say a little hard to install, that I would agree with, so I took it to my friend who's an expert....

      Sorry, I gave you the adjustment setting for the PS belt in the other thread but not how to do it. Referring to the Bentley again it looks like the early diesel has shims under the pulley on the PS...

      According to the Bentley manual, the early 2.4 engines [up to 1/95] used two V belts instead of the later ribbed belt. The alternator belt uses an adjustment design
      that I would call a rack & pinion...

      Yes I am aware of the restrictive choices you guys had when these vans were new. My comment was made with tongue in cheek.

      Yes, great work Matt. I wish you had the same model van as mine & then I could learn even more from you.
      Next time buy a 2.5 ACV 2.5 TDI , 02G trans & Syncro.

      I am fully in agreement with you on that. My Syncro didn't come with ABS & it appears that most didn't, either cost or added complexity.

      Just in case owners are not aware, there was 1.7 million T4s/Eurovans made. They seem to be increasing in value in the UK at least which to me means
      that there will be a supply chain of replacement...

      It's really good to see owners helping one another & you have been rewarded by your generosity. Keep your posts coming.

      That last link looks good. The originals have ball races inside but I believe some/all the cheaper assemblies just have a bush. I would like to regrease mine but I would need to remove the bracket to...

      I would agree with this guy, common problem as our vans get older.

      Thanks Matt for the link. With the pressure bleeder there is no air sucked back. That only occurs with the pumping method. The bleed screw[with clear plastic hose attached] on the respective wheel is...

      Does this tool just apply pressure or feed new brake fluid in as well? And how much are they?

      Here is a picture of what I made probably 30 or more years ago.

      It will be interesting what you think of the traction in the dry. Rear wheel articulation is poor on the Sprinter & easy to have one wheel in the air & no drive.

      By removing the screws that you can get to, can you flex the liner in the middle & with the aid of a flashlight & a rod or wire move the mechanism?

      Whenever I take a serpentine belt off, I turn the pulley to check for smoothness & whether it has a similar drag to a new one. Sometimes it just needs some more grease.
