    Rear Differential Vent Line - Can it be replaced?

    Hello! Found myself crawling under my 2005 3500 DRW today and noticed that the line coming out the top of the rear diff was broken. I figured it was a vent/breather line and after some digging in the service manual I was able to confirm it. My question is, can it be replaced and if so what are...

    Hole in valve cover. Posting so you can get a laugh at my misfortune.

    So I just spent weeks looking for a 2004-2006 T1N Sprinter and I finally pulled the trigger on one. I found it online and it looked good enough to make a 10 hour drive to see. I did all my research and even took it to a very reputable sprinter mechanic in the area for a PPI and was told...

    T1N: 1994-2006 Seeking 2004-2006 T1N 158” WB (or other Sprinters) < 200k Miles (SF Bay Area, CA)

    I'm hoping to find a nice, worn-in Sprinter that someone is looking to get rid of because it's time to upgrade. I'd prefer not to build everything out from scratch (as my time is scarce with work), but am open to it if it makes sense and the price is right. Also, looking for leads from those...

    Van randomly not starting due to low battery charge?

    Hey guys, I've had an ongoing issue of my van randomly not starting because my battery is getting below the required charge to start. I ended up getting the battery replaced under warranty and had no issues for a couple months, but now it's happening again. It just takes a simple jump, and is...

    My T1N LED Ditch Light Mounting Brackets

    I have a friend who has ditch lights mounted to his Toyota Tacoma and after seeing them I realized that it would be pretty cool to mount these type of lights to the T1N sprinter for any of those back road adventures (deer are a big problem around a lot of places that I go). After scouring the...

    Front Strut Replacement Correct Length

    Hey y'all, SO and I are going a bit balmy trying to get the front struts on our 2001 T1N High Roof LWB replaced. We've sourced a mechanic to order the parts for us (we will fit ourselves) and they're asking whether we want the 319mm or 345mm struts. We are unsure as to which we need and can't...

Saw that the size range fit the box and ordered one...

    Bolts/Info for installing armrests.

    I bought some aftermarket armrests for my 2003 3500. Could anyone tell me what bolts are used to secure the armrests to the seat? I have opened the cover and see the predrilled holes that are applicable. I don't have a bolt in my home collection that fits. Seems bigger than an 8mm but don't...

    Radiator reservoir leak and delaying the inevitable

    Hey all, hoping for a bit of mechanical wisdom. I have a 2002 with 250k miles on it. I’m pretty sure the reservoir has been leaking the whole time I’ve owned it, but has possibly gotten worse over time. I tried to patch with JB putty, but like others around here, the leak persisted. The leak...

    Glow plug codes. Low power

    I have a 2005 sprinter. 220k miles. I have the scan guage which I use to read codes and clear them.
