    Anyone need an OEM carpet?

    Have no need for mine anymore and feel weird throwing it out. It's not super clean but I'm open to trades or just giving it away. Located in Vancouver BC

    That sound deadening stuff is definitely very rotten but this seems like motor oil. I guess it could be from the previous owner changing the filter? I've had the van a couple years and I don't recall...

    Re: Changing the fuel filter

    Much to my dismay, no torque spec. If it's leaking it's too loose, if the washers disintegrate it's too tight. Should be one washer for either side of each banjo hose end (4 total)

  12. Re: Getting to know all the coolant hoses of your Vanwagon!

    Hey everyone! Anyone know if the heater inlet hose (87245-87014) is NLA? Can't seem to find any on the internet. What exactly would be the downside of going with regular ol 5/8 hose?
