Hi Michael

The flaps do flap, due to distortion of the plastic in heat

Have a look at this thread

I used two small neodymium magnets to keep mine in place, neat and unobtrusive but effective ( you still need to shut the flap but the magnets then keep it in place when driving
Thanks...it was all ok...but something changed...I like the magnet idea but have new flap to fit with a good/better catch...

There is definitely something making it spring back in place...interestingly not what I thought though as I have just bought a new one (as recommended on here) and the ‘spring’ isn’t where I thought it might be! I Now think it might just be the catch that’s broken and the spring just old!

You seem to have a miniature person living inside your hook up point....either that or you have a gigantic hook up point.

Either way, just check the sales description to see if they were included in the sale ....are you responsible for them....servicing requirements etc....?
I know people like to personalise....just seems an odd ‘extra’ to put on a Cali?
:oops:

This is a 2010 - is is possible to replace the cooker/sink hood/cover for two separate ones (as in newer vans) or has anyone got suggested alternatives to put either over the sink when cooking or over the hobs when washing up?
Mine is a 98 so maybe your 2000 is different - but you are aware that there is a stainless steel tray/food prep/draining board that folds down out of the lid to sit on the gas burners? I ask because it was a week or two before I noticed it!

All T4 Cali’s have the stainless steel tray, it’s actually a draining board for wet dishes, if it not there I’m not surprised as it rattles like hell unless you stuff something soft between it and the burners.

If you have a glass top then, no, you don't have the draining tray or whatever (I use it for food prep).
If I'd had a few more €k, I'd have gone for a T5 Cali- much nicer arrangements in the front and back.
