Default T4 Westfalia California Exclusive

Hi everyone

Any of you got one of these? If so, would you like to exchange information/experiences? I love mine to bits (had it over 7 years now), but have some niggles.

Would be great to compare notes with other members!

Happy travelling
John

Hi John,
I've got a 94 T4 Westy but I'm not sure if its an executive. Only had it 18 months so I'm still finding things out about it. What problems have you had ?
So far I've only had a fuse go for the interior lights go and a rear brake / side light blown plus a steering gaitor needed replacing for the MOT but other than that its been great

Hi Uzi

Many thanks for your response. Mine's a '96. If it's an Exclusive it's got a sticker on the front nearside of the bonnet. They're LWB and I think mine was one of the first made. In nearly 8 years it's been mechanically perfect (apart from breaking a cambelt, but I've learned my lesson there!) The problem is with the 'caravan' electrics. Would you mind if I PM'd you? - don't want to bore other members with what is probabley unique to these models.

I'm going to try and post some pictures later.

Thanks again
John

That's the one. It's high top and LWB. I've tried to post a picture, but apparently I can't do that until I've paid a subscription. Its unique in many ways, but I'm guessing that the electrics are the same (or at least similar) to other Westy T4s.

Cheers
John

Hi John, I have a Westy Exclusive and I love it too, although I've not even had mine a year yet. Mines a 1995 with the 1.9td. I've been in to the wiring and made a few mods to the camper electrics amongst other things. Can't promise to solve your problems but feel free to share.

Hello John,

Hope it's not too late to join in this thread. We've got an Exclusive. Bought it in Feb. Don't know about helping with the electrics as all I've done is replace the battery, but am willing to share the joy of owning one of these great vans.

Ian.

John,
I've got one of these it's a 1999 2.5L petrol and I've owned it about a year and done 30,000km in it. Loved it all the way round europe. Noto too much has gone wrong, save a couple of fuses with the water pump, and some small mechanicals.
I'm not a very technical man, but willing to try and answer any questions if I can help.
Mark
