Help!!! Wiring ID and a chopped off hose

Post by Stuntman on Wed Aug 27, 2014 6:08 pm

Hello chaps,

Help needed! The po has bodged the fan to be always on, using methods a teenage boy racer from the 90's would be proud off.

He's also chopped off a hose and shoved a bolt in to stop the end of it.

Can anyone help please guys, oh and I've set fire to dash, I need to rip it out and see if there are any more bodges behind the panels, grrrr!!!

Should thus be plugged into anything?

The fan relay is supposed to live around there, they have a tendency to bugger up. The hose is your bleed valve.

I take it that it should not have a bolt in the end then, more of a valve. The multi plug that is there has 4 connections, I take it it should plug into something?

No valve as such, it's usually just a little rubber cap. Chances are it got lost as some point and replaced with that length of hose.

Is yours a dual fuel model or has it ever been?

I don't think so, there is no filler cap or tank fbsts.

I'm happy to bypass this entirely with a kenlow and a thermostat, but I'd like to get this identified first Smile

It should look something like this:

You can pick them up on ebay for much cheapness. If you do replace that length of hose, don't chuck it out as it is halfway to being a pressure tester - all you need is a schrader valve (car tyre) and a compressor.

I just use a bit of pipe with a bolt in it like what you've got.

Except I cut the head off and make it look respectable.

Also all I'm going to say from previous experience with alot of hijets -

Dodgy fan wiring.
Altered Bleed bung.

99.9% needs a head job and other stuff.
