Default Re: Removing Espar D4 for maintenance

If you don't get an answer (presumably no labels or other identification on the part?), may try these options:

1. Post a query on the James Cook Friends Forum, subforum for the similar year.

It seems that even if one can identify the manufacturer of a part, the production run may have been limited and now unavailable (e.g., Westfalia battery charger, upper vent windows, black louvered-look panels, etc.).

2. Inquire of the German-based Westfalia repair shop which can refit the fiberglass top, shower pan, etc. May be expensive to get if they even have, and to ship. This shop seems to pop up as the favored Westfalia repair shop in the James Cook Friends forum.

3. Is the return air fitting the same as the heating output fitting? Any way to make another one (3D printing?).

Note: It is impressive (if not troublesome for replacements) that Westfalia has so many little detailed custom parts. Even something like the body conforming gasket around the hot water heater frame to this interesting fitting (I'd imagine most converters would just run a duct through the floor)..

Foster:

In the Airstream/Westfalia Parts Catalog, the distributor part and seal look like Mercedes part numbers.

Parts 38 and 39 in the diagram:

A 901 831 02 05 Distributor
A 901 831 10 98 Seal

When searching, may work better if no spaces in the Mercedes numbers.
