Connect interior lights to the house battery

An empty starter battery can ruin your day. That’s why you should route your interior lights to the house battery instead. In a T1N Sprinter, this is an easy task – you just have to find the right cable to cut into 🙂 Other than that this is a simple 2 on the difficulty scale and the most tricky part is to route the cable from your house battery to the connection point.

Replacing the A/C Drier in a T1N Sprinter

The Drier performs the same filtering function to your A/C system as the oil filter for your engine. Every time you exchange a major part of your A/C system you should do this easy job to make sure your A/C performs perfectly. In a T1N Sprinter the A/C drier is easily accessible and you should be able to replace the old unit with a new one in less than an hour. On the repair difficulty scale this is a three (1, easy to 10, hard).

A/C Expansion Valve replacement

This document describes how to replace the A/C Expansion Valve in a T1N Sprinter Van. The valve is located in the engine compartment under the windshield on the drivers side (for LHD Vans). The wiper mechanism is a bit in the way but with a wrench extension and an Allen bit this job is done in 30 minutes. On the difficulty scale (1 easy – 10 hard) I would rate this job as a 2.
