Cabstar

Recommended Posts

Anyone here run an older cabstar with the engine accessed under the seat?

just got one a couple of weeks ago as a stopgap as my usual truck having some major work done to it.

my query is about the liners either side of the engine that protect it from road spray- not sure what they look like as mine are missing and hoping someone could post a couple of pics up please?

just got some sent by a breakers yard and doubt very much that they have sent the correct parts (and charged a fortune for them too) ☹️
thanks in advance

Ok that’s great thanks - just there are mounting points for one either side on my 2002 plate and was concerned about road spray getting into the alternator or any other electrics?

Yep! Duncan in Gloucestershire is THE Cabstar man, I’ve had numerous dealings with him, top bloke.

I’ve owned a Cabstar for nine years now and he’s kept it going a treat. Don’t waste his time though, he won’t bother with messers.
