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.
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).
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.

If you want to carry stuff on the roof of your Sprinter Van you need a way to secure it. An easy way to do this is to install some roof rack tracks. That gives you a base for all kind of options: from a simple roof rack, a base for your solar panels up to specialized roof racks to hold your Kayaks. Once you’re over the fear of drilling holes into the sheet metal of your Van, this job is super easy. I would rate it a 2 on the 1 to 10 scale.
