Turned up in the workshop. At first this Kombi looks like it has been pretty well cared for and in good shape.
But … yep looks like there has been an engine fire.
After visiting two other repair shops who wanted to write the Kombi off they brought it to us.
YES we can find the parts to put her back together.
The most common causes of engine fire that we have found are the incorrect or badly fitted fuel lines and pumps. Kombis need a bit of special care so it is just another reason why the servicing should be carried out by a specialist who knows how to treat these ‘more mature’ ladies.
