  1. This thread is to highlight a problem with early 2. 5 Kia Sorentos and maybe other Kia models. It should have been a recall but isn't. I have put it here as there are lots of happy Sorento owners on this forum and also future members may need to be aware of this problem. The problem shows itself when the engine cuts out leaving you stranded and with no power steering. Leaving it for 30 secs enables you to re-start the engine. It occurs particularly if you put your foot down a bit wanting a bit of engine power, but may not occur if you potter along slowly. It can be potentially dangerous on a motorway as you are given no warning. Users (myself included this week) have suspected the injectors, the common rail system and especially the petrol filter before stripping down the rear seats, getting to the tank and finding that the inside of the tank is painted and this paint is delaminating into the fuel. After much investigation (because we did not know of this well known problem), my mechanic pumped out all the diesel and ran it through a filter to find a lot of weird stuff floating about. Google told us the delamination is the paint. Then a clean of the inside of the tank and putting everything back cures it. Till maybe next time. Look at this thread on the Kia Forum http://www. kiaownersclub. co. uk/forum/delamination-of-tank_topic8139. html and you will discover others with this problem and Kia have replaced FOC many tanks. But Kia need proof of the problem or they will charge for looking at the tank. No good to me as by the time we have discovered and sorted the problem, the tank is now clean and Kia can disown any responsibility. I haven't had my bill yet, but I expect it to be (at a guess) £3 - £500 for mostly labour. Reports imply that it may occur with the Sportage.
  2. Hi I just joined Caravan talk,we are new this year to caravans. So far so good. We have an Ace Award Dawnstar which we are very happy with but just found two of the front windows delaminated almost completely. Ive been looking at the adhesives available to make the rebonding between inner and outer skins. We have completely discounted the thought of replacing them for about £200 and £300 respectively. What advice have members got for this one please. I have come to understand that this is now quite an issue with many Vans and motorhomes. One website I have seen says they have heard of over 3000 cases of this with various makes of Van and motorhome. There is the issue of screenprinted borders on the mating face of the windows where the bond has failed and Ideally any re-bonding needs to keep this looking good, My Ace has this border to all its windows. Any guidance would be appreciated Best Regards Mike
  3. I have a 2011 Elddis Odyssey 656 which has developed a fault in the floor. Running almost the full length of the caravan from front to back there is a step change in level of about half an inch, very noticeable, i. e. the right hand side of the van floor is half an inch higher than the left side. The kink can be seen from underneath also but there are no cracks in the grp skin. I've read up on fixing delaminated floors using polyurethane adhesive but this fault seems slightly different. I did see a report on the Internet about other Elddis models of this age having similar problems which were fixed under warranty using additional external support beams. Unfortunately, the warranty conditions on my van have not been met, (Elddis approved servicing every 12 months, etc.) so getting a dealer to fix it will be expensive. I have the skills to repair it myself but interested to hear if anyone else has tackled this job?
  4. Hi Folks I posted a few weeks ago that our the nearside front window of our Bailey Senator(2006) had delaminated on one side and that I was concerned about towing home from France with this. I taped up the window with duct tape and it was okay for our journey home. I've subsequently been researching solutions to this problem. My service engineer says that there are no suitable windows available on the Bailey website currently. This leaves several possibilities: (1) A second hand window from a breakers (2) Exhaust Ejector Co. Ltd who advertise window repairs (3) Rebonding the window myself on a DIY basis with a specialist glue (Following Cary's recent unemployment and my recent retirement, we are pretty hard up so this alternative is becoming increasingly attractive) My internet research has turned up 2 possible adhesives which seem to be suitable for doing this job. I was wondering if anyone has done this job and has any advice, etc. The adhesives I have seen are: Bondrite S1225 Bondrite S1220 Tradeweld Crystal Tim
  5. The floor in my caravan is soft as you walk in to it just after the entrance - I investigated further and looked and watched a few videos on delamination. I then recorded the symptoms here. I'm not so sure if delaminated - see here: https://drive. google. com/open?id=0B84pSSpcLDMkQ0tVdFlyQ2xQRHM The floor bends rather than is soft - bad design I say, the split between the panels runs under where the entrance is right under the main walk way. Therefore the floor bends - more so under weight rather than is soft. Do you all think this is a case or delamination ? I was thinking to strengthen this the best bet would be to get some flat hardboard or cross-ply drill with pilot holes every 5 cm. Then coat the wood with epoxy, then screw the 2 ft square for example in to the existing floor from underneath with 1/2 inch screws. Thanks John
  6. Anyone had experience of rebonding of delaminated windows by a company called EECO? It works out about £96 per window, plus the cost of getting it to them - they're based in Halifax. There is a good guide to doing it yourself at http://www. 1carpc. co. uk/wcdr/window-delamination-repair. htm, but I'm not sure I want to run the risk of screwing the repair up.
  7. I have been advised by my service engineer that two of my windows have delaminated and I will probably attempt a DIY repair. My van is a 2005 ABBY ventura but I dont know what material they are made from as this is important to ensure I get the correct adhesive. Any idea's. .... Thank you for looking
  8. Hi all,thought i would share what i did today,i had a floor that was very noisey to walk on so i bought a delamination repair kit from ebay . It was very easy to do,just drilled a load of 10mm holes, filled them with the fluid and bunged the holes with 10mm dowels,When drilling the holes i made sure i did not drill through the bottom board of the floor,then ran the drill up and down a few times to make sure i got everything out of the holes,al i need to do now is wait 24hrs then i can clean the floor up and relay the carpet (but that will be next week.
  9. Hi, It would appear that i have floor delimitation in the bathroom (EW) - because the the wardrobe, shower, basin, shower and toilet is all sitting on top on the vinyl flooring i was wondering if anyone has attempted to fix this from under neath ? I have seen this product (see link) and i was wondering if anyone has used it ? http://www. thegluepeople. co. uk/v1/DeLam_TX_Instructions. pdf if so, any feed back ? thanks matt
  10. I take no pleasure in starting this thread. As installing a worry is not my idea of a good thing to do, but given that some of you have hung up the van keys for the winter, or are about to, I feel in this case it is time to check your vans. For owners of the new Swift Smart HT vans the elegance range etc. Please be aware that the last few days a thread on 'Swift Talk' has started. 5 Owners have found that after using the Alde heating the interior walls are showing signs of de-lamination above the Radiators/Towel rails. Photos clearly show the interior walls bubbling, (a bit like a pocket of air trapped under wallpaper). This is affecting some vans on the back wall and others on more than one wall. Swift have openly responded they are aware of the problem and 'investigating' the cause. I claim no knowledge as to the seriousness of this not owning a Smart HT. Now hopefully this will be a small number of vans and easily fixed, but in all fairness please check your vans.
  11. Have just been beneath my 2014 Quartz while the wife walked in the washroom and rear bedroom area, (she is quite light in stature, so less than average size or weight) and the creaking was considerable and the floor was moving up and down a bit to say the least. I checked all 4 corner steadies and can just move all the pads between concrete and steady legs, so no jacking effect exerted anywhere. No signs of it moving at chassis rails or the join between 2 floor panels, so eliminated any issue there. The question is, is it delamination and what are likely repair options on a van a few months old. Any thoughts appreciated.
  12. hi I'm going to tackle the delam on my van this weekend. after reading endless articles on the subject i have gone for the 'one shot' method. my question is - i have read that the dowels should be soaked in water to activate the resin, but it does not mention this in the instructions provided. should i soak them anyway or do it as per the instructions? http://www. ebay. co. uk/itm/CARAVAN-ONE-SHOT-SPONGY-FLOOR-REPAIR-DELAMINATION-KIT-WITH-GLOVES-DOWELS-2525-/181405265528?pt=UK_Campervan_Caravan_Accessories&hash=item2a3c98ae78 that is the kit i purchased. cheers jason
  13. Hi, Going for our 2nd outing out next week & decided to clean the caravan windows. Opened the front side windows & noticed about half inch of water which just fills the very outer corner of each window. Panic! Also the acrylic has got condensation so assuming it is a build up of the condensation. We have had torrential rain showers past week with very warm sun in between. I looked on various forums & have done as advised, prised out the small plugs at the top & opened the windows wide to let the sun get at them. The front faces the mainly early morning sun, the sun moving onto the side of the caravan. I did notice that one of the plugs on the large front window is missing, but that is completely free of any water or condensation! Hubby is at work at the mo but I did try to look to see if there were any proper leaks. ...I'm not seeing anything. The caravan is 8 yrs old, no sign of any water on the ledges at the front & all dry when we picked it up a few weeks ago. We have got a 3 month warranty from the dealer. We avoided buying a Bailey Moselle because one of the front windows was half filled with water! So to see this on our Lunar as really got me worried. Being at home, I was in & out of the caravan the first week or two but it has been closed up the past week. Any further suggestions?
  14. Just brought our second caravan on Sunday. First caravan was the Bain off my life,spent so much money repairing only to have to sell on due to caravan not being big enough for us and new baby. Well I must be a fool,just picked up new caravan,when viewing I thought the floor was bit spongy but thought that's ok. We have been away in it for 2 days and the floor feels like it's getting softer. So I think I may have to do some DIY. I've read post on here about delamination and got the general gist but could someone please write a step by step? I've read about drilling but the only thing is how far do you drill down?
  15. Anyone ever separated a slightly curved fixed window from a caravan, and replaced the inner piece with a new piece of acrylic/perspex? The front window on our 25 year old van has started separating, the inner sheet has also "gone funny" and seems to have suffered from sun damage or something like that. I was thinking of popping out the window, separating the two sheets, cutting a new inner piece, gluing (with proper adhesive) it together and hold with clamps until set. I figured some 2 or 3mm perspex should be enough and give plenty flex for gluing to the curved outer piece without straining it. I'm a bit worried about separating the two pieces for fear of shattering one or both and also what to use for cutting a new piece. Not sure whether a fine toothed jigsaw would hack at the material. Anyone done this? Thanks.
  16. Just over a year ago I repaired the nearside front window where the inner and outer surfaces were coming apart. I assumed that it was down to the strain of one of the window latches as it was directly beneath. I removed the window and used a recommended acrylic cement then clamped the unit for a few hours but I have now noticed that it is beginning to come apart again. I've bought some more acrylic weld cement from http://www. bondrite. co. uk/weld-cements/acrylic-weld-cement-250ml-kit/prod_79. html and will have another go at it when we get a full days sunshine. Any advice would be appreciated.
  17. Hi. I am pretty new to caravanning and my wife and I really have the bug. There is nothing better than finishing work on a Friday and heading out into the North York Moors to a lovely site to get away from it all. We have a 1999 Abbey Pacific and we have had it for nearly 2 years. I have notice this year though that the floor is becoming more and more soft. The van does not appear to have any signs of damp but I am getting more concerned about the floor. Does anyone have any tips on how to repair the floor? I have been told that I could use cavity wall insulation and this would firm up the floor. Has anyone tried this before? Thanks very much.
  18. Hi All, My first post. We have a Swift Lifestyle 480 2 berth 2005 Got it in 2008 2011 noticed what looked like condensation down the joint between the rear toilet wall and the offside wall. Ran a thumb nail down it and it came away with a hint of liquid. ..keep an eye on it. .. 2012 service and all was well except for that rear wall, high readings, so much so that the mobile service engineer suggested the rear rail, above the window, be removed and reseated/resealed. Did that, wall seemed to dry out and become solid again Late summer 2013, poked at rear wall. A tad spongy, so got a damp meter Barely touched the wall alongside the window and the prongs just disappeared into the wall "The man" duly checked it and recommended replacing the rear and offside walls and all that entails. Job done and its now sound Also noticed o/s front window was delaminating down o/s He tried to sort it, looked ok, until I washed the van. Ended up with 4" water inside the window and a pool on the front shelf inside the van He had another go with different `glues` At first did not appear to have worked, and looked a bit messy, but, at least no water getting in Just called at the storage site to check things out and window delam: is now solid BUT Now got a 2. 5" split at the base of the window, on the inside and at the other side. ... Heard that EECO repaired delaminated windows but only if they had not been worked on Looks like 300 quid for a new window, price quoted by local dealership at Catterick (the one that now only sells caravans ) Any pointers in other directions regarding the window would be greatly appreciated Dismantlers have proved a waste of time by the way First `van we got was in late 70`s, a Swift with a boat shaped roof After looking at some of the damp problems with Swifts it seems they should go back to that type of roof
  19. Ok so my husband was doing some delamination in our newly bought 2000 bailey ranger. He got all the stuff and instructions and off he went to start it. I popped my head in and water was leaking up from one of the little holes. It turns out to be the blue cold water pipe underneath wooden floor. It was very unlucky that the pipes were exactly underneath the drilled hole. So what I am asking is does anyone know how to repair the pipe. Ta.
  20. My Sterling Eccles Onyx 2003 has delamination of all the front windows. Have had a dealer quote to replace them for over £1000 . 00 which I think is ridiculous for a bit of plastic. My view is that swift should supply these windows at cost as they are obviously faulty but not getting any joy. Has anyone had a similar problem and did you get it resolved without taking out a mortgage!!
  21. Hello, I am under the impression that delamination is the top layer of ply. My recently bought has been treated of this but the board on the bottom has dropped not the top. Not rot there I think there is not enough support underneath. Any ideas what I could do, or should I just leave it. it drops where the join is. Second board in from the rear.
