Is your seat latch playing up? Have a look to see the small spring on the hinge catches are still in-situ.

If not, the Westfalia part number is 253070239A and you can get them for a few Euros at Gunzl or poptopshop.nl

Great work.

I "hacked" my car as I were in a hurry before leaving for holiday.
Ordered an "230V C14 to Schuko" adapter.
Plugged it between the C13-plug that normally is fitted in the original carger, and connected it to a standard charger from CTEK, and connected it to the battery.

Worked perfectly through the vacation. The 230V plug inside the car also worked (as it obviously does not need the charger to work).

Have now gotten the original charger fixed for the aprox. cost of half a pound in replacement parts (a capacitor or condensator that had dried out - not my field of knowledge). A kind family member replaced the part for me.
Have not fitted it in the car yet - but have tested it without load, and it seems promising.

Re: Useful Westfalia T4 links

Replacement bendy arm'd lights:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hella-Navigat ... 2ebb4fafa6
I am looking at replacing the fluorescent bulbs with LEDs in the rear of my T4 Westfalia. I have been going around in circles on the forum and the Internet. Is there a definitive answer on the LED replacement bulb for the 2 lights in the rear? Part number, supplier and a difference between the 2 lights.? Hope you can help and point me in the right direction.

Cali now sold
I looked into it, but decided to stick with the fluorescent bulbs for now. There's a thread somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

Hi 2135, I'm new and looking to buy a Westfalia t4 2002, could you help! I've been doing my research now for 15 months and I wanted to know if you had or you know anyone who has any experience of 25Seven Campers?
They are up near Birmingham. Any guidance or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you
Qyou
