Greetings!

Can anyone tell me how I go about servicing the Eberspacher water heater in the engine bay of my T4 Caravelle 2.5? It's never been done to my knowledge, and 18 years on it's still trucking!! I'm in Swindon in the south-west, so if there any resources or garages that might do this.... please let me know!!

Thanks
Andy

Haha.....just like me, you should have done this 6 months ago!
Most of the "servicing" is to replace the glowplug and just brush the "dust" out.
It's easy to remove if you have a small chimanzee to sort it...
NOT something to do when you suddenly get 6" of snow overnight!

Radiator into "service" position makes it easier to get to, but it's still "a long way down" to remove the mounting clips, cable and fuel pipe.
Also, you need front LH wheel off to get to the exhaust pipe.

Easy job in summer...but who thinks about it until it produces white clouds of smoke in winter. :*
