    Posted: 02 Jun 16 at 13:41
Hi!

Has somebody for the big window busses from 1991 to 1995 a spare parts catalogue? The spare parts programm ETKA starts at 1995 and the 2.5i AAY engine with the K-Jetronic is not included.
Is there a possibility to get such a catalogue as printed document, microfilm or PDF file?

And has somebody the "owners service manual" (the blue one which comes together with the car) for sale?

Best regards,
Gunther

Hi Gunther,
As you have found the 2.5i is not listed in the ETKA system, it's as though VWSA never made them!

I understand that the cars were initially built by an independant VW tuner, then adopted by VWSA. How much of this is actually true I do not know...

If you ask the good people on the syncro-sa forum there may be more information available, that is how I got my 2.6i wiring diagrams via email.

Regards,

Ian

Dear Ian,

Nice that you are back.  :-)

Yes I already asked in the syncro sa forum and I tried to get informations when I was in Uitenhage in April. I think there must be a microfiche.
Till now it was no problem to get the parts but I like to be prepared with some more informations.  Wink

Best regards,
Gunther

I've got an unused folder with handbook, service book etc for a 2.6 if you would like it (or anyone else), no money involved.

I'm not willing to part with my Owners Manual hardcopy, but I do have a pdf scan of it. The cost to you will be the share of any other 2.5 literature that you come up with. I assume that Charlie gave you a copy of the wiring diags. If not, shout up. I'll pm you a link to the owners manual.

Thanks Brian!  Smile

Do you need the wiring diagram? I only have it as print document but I can scan it in my office.

Is that a manual appertaining to the 2.5 Ian? Not sure what your "full set of paperwork" involves. If it is 2.5 info then I am definitely interested.

Owners manual/service folder arrived safely. I didn't expect it to be new and unused!!!

It's far too good to go with our scruffy bus so I will forward it on to Gunther, who probably now has the most rust-free big window in Europe!

Sounds like a good plan, I was pleased when mine passed mot with no corrosion advisories but then I was changing wheels using OE jack and one corner was definitely iffy so hurriedly switched to trolley jack...

Thanks Ian!  Thumbs Up

This is a lot of work Steven, my bus had also a lot of rust problems near the jaching. But we replaced alle the parts complete at the frame do be sure that everything is stable for the future.
The last days I sprayed many liter of Owatrol insige the frame and later Fluid Film will follow. Now the rust has no chance!  Big smile     I hope....

Gents,

I have also a 1991 VW T3 2.5I and am struggling to find relevant info for it.  I have recently had it surveyed and am adjusting for big restoration bill...lots of rust underneath.  How it ever got through the last few MOTs is beyond debut hey ho there is now at least a plan.  If possible I am trying to find info about the engine set up and how it should be configured or any wiring diagrams or drawings?  I would be happy to pay and any help would be hugely appreciated as my 7 year old loves her bus!  P.s. anyone know of a useful parts source?  (I know i will need a new manifold and possibly petrol tank.)  

Ian - dorset
