  1. Thank you. I think with correct planning it should be to hard to do. Though the pings at the top of the winner windows are missing. So will have to try and sauce them.
  2. That's a very interesting read! Thank you very much indeed! I shale be giving that a try. Although I to have used duck tape as a temp repair damn it. Will tow the van the 2 and half hours home from storage. Repair and then the 2 and half hours home! Will be a long weekend!
  3. The main window the split is top to bottom!! Ito not help that I store my van near Great Yarmouth but I live in Northants! I'll give the people a ring in Halifax thanks for that. I did think superglue I'd need to see if there's a screwfix or such like bear by to get a 3 or 4 clamps to make sure can hold it closed whilst drying. Thank you
  4. So after pulling the van out of winter storage ready for her usual clean. I Spot that my front window has 2 inches of water sat between the layers of plastic. Great!! Then notice that the middle one is even worse and is clearly split top to bottom. Any ideas on repairs or does any one know of a half decent salvage yard to get replacements!!
  5. Thank you. Sadly the wallpaper issue is now on a back burner. Have got the van out of storage to clean and two of the front windows have delaminted!! Brilliant not very happy!
  6. Well I'm up to the van this weekend I'll have to have a look and see what's what then really. Iv had a look online and replacing wall board doesn't look like the easiest of jobs! Maybe time to call in the pros!
  7. If I'm honest I bought the van in its current condition. I could see that there had been ano issue but before buying I had the van check over by a local swift dealer who confirmed that the repair was good and there was no other damp in the van. But like you say I don't understand why the repair hadn't included the papper. It isn't anything major though so if going to cost a fortune to repair I'll probs leave. Thanks for responses.
  8. Hi, I am after wallpaper for my swift challenger 2007. I have had a damp issue addressed but now require new paper. I cant seem to find any were to sells it at a none rediculous price. Also any ideas on the best glue for new paper? Thank you
  9. Thanks iv got a couple of dealers neat by but tbh they they very helpful! I'll keep searching for a breaker. By mirror braket covers I mean the crome caps that go over the plastic brackets which hold the mirror in the main gang way. I would add a pic but can't work out how to!
  10. I tow a Abbey GTS 215 with my 2009 Skoda Octavia Saloon. 2. 0L td DSG. Iv got a witter removable tow bar. Can't fault her at all. Pulls like a train. I get 40mpg on average. So can't complain!!
  11. Hi, Iv just purchased the above caravan and need a couple of spares for it. I understand the bits I require are the same as of the same age Abbey. But can't seem to find them onlin. Any suggestions please greatly received! I require mirror brake covets, sink cover/chopping board. Fly cover for roof hatch in bathroom. I also don't suppose if anyone knows any were to get seat covers from? Many Thanks
  12. Fold down electrics, and a hidden socket for tow bar. Brilliant bit of kit by whitter.
  13. Has anyone seen the new calor 6kg lite weight bottle, it claims that the bottle is 50% lighter than a normal bottle. Has anyone bought one of these yet? is so did it make alot of difference to the nose weight? The other problem im running on butan atm and this is propane. Is a gas regulator an easy swop?

    I owned a D3 for just over a year, and tbh it did tow amazingly!! I found it very roomy and had plenty of storage. Sadly they are the only nice things I can say. Iv never owned such an unreiable car. Every month a new issue would come about, EPB sticking on even though cleaned at ever service, adviced by a dealer not to use it if I was going to leave the car unused for more than a day lol, new compressor because a £5 relay stopped working, a new alternator, egr values, bushes worn at just 50,000 miles, yes it a heavy car, but then why not get better bushes the car cost £28,000 brand new. Even an indi dealer charges £100 an hour. Never get above 24mpg (d4 is better apparently). The last straw for me was when towing and over taking a lorry, they landy decided to go into "safe mode" air suspension goes down no power in lane two over takin a hill great. For a car that costs so much money brand new and second hand tbh it was a joke. Iv gone back to german engineering. Trusted and reliable. I wish you the best of luck with your D4, i think they are mazing machines. I just wish they were reliable. Always get the dealer to repair it. Always get it serviced when it is due, and always get a warrenty check done on it!! Rick
