air cond compressor bracket

I have been offered the chance to purchase a second hand air cond compressor bracket. Neither of us know what it is worth, other than both parties want a fair and reasonable exchange.

Can anyone one suggest what such an item would be worth. Greg

Greg,

If it isn’t a genuine VAG, it probably isn’t worth considering even as a gift. 

The aftermarket versions made locally were unbelievably rough and agricultural, on top of being incomprehensibly heavy.  

It is still possible to source second hand genuine (cast aluminium) brackets from the US and Europe .

Hi Greg,
 
for starters, it's worth every cent you spend on it, 'cose it's engineerd . I paid  +- 110 US and I think that was very reasonable indeed. Thanks BenT. Greg please check carefully the wiring towards the distributor which in my case was jammed between the the engine case and the extra heavy agricultural welded steel contraption. In my case the wiring was squashed flat and could have failed at any time.
When you instal the part you have to remove the 2 air intake tubes for access when taking off the 2 original clamps , you migth be able to reuse them or else use scew type clamps, preferrable the ones which don't cut into the rubber.  Hartmut  from Port also

Sorry Greg, yes we are talking the genuine VW part of course.  And btw Stephan (Steve) Muller has got one for sale I believe. Try Kombi Rescue  0400 356 057       Hart

Might mention that a good portion of cost is shipping to OZ from the US. If you can get one locally, there are definite advantages. And as Hartis mentioned, genuine VW only.

Average prices factory original sliding windows for either the sliding door or the opposite panel cost US$40-$80 used. To my knowledge, ALL Vanagons got middle sliders. They are quite plentiful here. The black ones tend to fetch more $. Of course, you can occasion find them for even less and often for more. It can be annoying when someone asks to source one then later find one for less then berate you for the effort.

As with anything distant from you, shipping is the deal killer.

ps: some Vanagon owners crave the clean look of solid glass middle windows.

Phill,

We never got panel vans or T3's without the sliding windows.

People frequently those which he/she cannot have. Accessories or lack thereof on a T3 can be applicable in that situation.

Also,

RHD syncros & 2wd's central windows dont match those of the US models as the
sliding door window is different to that on the fixed side.

When I bought my syncro it had a US spec caravelle window in the sliding
door - it leaked like a sieve as it was installed backwards (the only way it
would fit as it was designed to be on the other side of the vehicle).

Wreckers often have these but also make sure they are from 1987 onwards as
the windows changed size slightly from then on.

Good point. In a pinch, you an cut and weld the frame smaller at least for the sliding door side. Guessing you wouldn't even need to cut the glass if the cut is made on the sliding side of the frame.

Greg,

This is caused by the poor manufacturing of the local side window frames.   I had the same problem so I pulled them out and measured the frames.   I found that the top corner radius was wrong (too great) and that they were therefore around 6-7 mm short of filling the corner and allowing the rubber to fit correctly.

I fixed this by building up the frame with glass reinforced epoxy to restore the original correct frame size and corner radius.   It was a long and fiddly job but it was worth it.   I can’t remember if I put the pics in the photo section or not.
