  1. Colour-coded ex-AA Handiwash

    Parts For Sale
    Hi all I have for sale an Eberspacher Handiwash unit out of my ex-AA T4.

The first 2 pictures (taken with a better camera) are the best representation of the colours and...

  3. Ex AA T4 Alternator keeps blowing

    Hi - over the past 14 months i've gone thru 4 alternators!. It lasted perfectly well with the original for the 5 previous years.

  4. My Ex-AA to Day Van Conversion

    SWB Garage (All Versions)
    As I was going through sorting out pictures that got deleted the other week, it occurred to me that I haven't done a thread showing what I've done to the van. Seeing as I have actually finally done something of worth as well, I thought now was the time! So here's what we started with in January...

  10. Ex-AA van, moving rear seats to nearside

    Sorry if this is a repeat of any previous thread, I had a good look and couldn't find one. I was wondering - has anyone tried moving their ex-AA rear twin seat to the nearside of the van? If I did this I could use the Styleline kit to make a kids bed and leave space on the offside for furniture...

  14. Question for the Ex-AA Vans

    General T4 Chat
    Has anynone Carpeted the back and kept the tool racking? I like the idea of being able to refit the tool cabs but have the rear of the van insulated and carpeted. I know it would make refitting the bulk head a bit tighter but other then that it should be possible? Its there any company who...

  16. ex-AA rear under-bumper white light

    I am after the clear glass lens from the light fitted under the rear bumper of ex-AA vans. The plastic on mine has melted. Not 100% sure I'm going to keep it, but I'd like to get mine fixed and see if it's useful. Someone out there must have one in the box of stuff they've stripped out :-)...
  17. Anyone here with the Co-Op and declared mods?

    Tax, Insurance & Licensing
    I'm thinking of making a few changes to the van, but a quick call to the insurers got a flat refusal and "no mods allowed". :eek: I was wondering if that was just the person I spoke to or whether anyone else has had more luck with them. They were one of the few insurers who offered a private...

  20. Electric Mirrors Question

    I've got an Ex AA Team Yellow, but the LH Electric mirror doesn't work. I've taken the glass out and had a look at the wiring briefly! Nothing more than a quick look, all seems OK to me!!! The weird thing is when in the drivers seat I switch the toggle to L or R when on the R for the RHS...
