I had my main fan bust the other day on the freeway. It was so loud and shakey that I thought my engine was about to blow up. I just started looking for a replacement today and so far have found a replacement blade at https://www.1stvwparts.com/partscat.html for about $50
I also found the whole assembly at http://catalog.vw-auto-parts-wholesale.com/?make=VW&year=1999&Submit=Search+Now%- 21 for about $370
I don't know if there is a difference. The picture of the whole assembly looks like maybe the blades aren't replacable. I still have to pull the assembly off the EV and take a looksee. good luck

Thank you! The dealer has told me that this particular model of Eurovan has fans for which the blades can't be exchanged (but every other model can). Which Eurovan do you have? Is it the Winnebago camper van? I'd be curious to hear if the blades on yours look removable.
I'll be trying to check that out on mine as well.

Any update on this. I would never try personally importing it, as if the VW running costs in this country are not already insane, that is a recipe for disaster.
That said I eagerly await them putting the T5/Multivan/Caravelle on the market, specially if they put in the new 3.6 V6. It doesnt look like its going to happen though since this model has been out in Europe for at least 2 years. I used to have a '96 Caravelle 2.6i (vanagon) in South Africa where they are still cult vehicles to families and outdoorsmen alike, and like the thought of getting its latest incarnation when it finally arrives here.

A reporter is looking to interview people who have abandoned the Volkswagen brand in recent years because they needed an affordable minivan or compact SUV - the kinds of models VW doesn't currently offer in the United States. Please send an e-mail to jfallonedmunds.com no later than Friday, June 30, 2006 containing your daytime contact information and a few words about your decision.

I recently purchased a 2000 full camper Eurovan. I am looking for something to put on top of the roof for extra storage. There is a space right above the driver and passenger side that measures 42"x14". Does anyone have any suggestions?

taillight lens - try partsplaceinc.com
roof storage - try yakima or thule - they make mounts where you can drill a hole in the roof to mount brackets to mount their racks. used mostly on the fiberglass covers that go over the beds in pickups, but i imagine that this is similar.
i saw recently that VW put the bigger engine in, put a sliding door on the left side and dropped the price drastically - i suspect that VW will have another go at bringing the eurovan to the american market before too long.
if they do, and its available in a stick, I'm there. A diesel would be even better, but....
#651 of 854 Considering buying 2003 Eurovan -- Seat Belt Concern
Jul 01, 2006 (12:05 pm)
I am looking at purchasing a 2003 EuroVan. I really love the vehicle with one major exception! The lack of shoulder harness seat belt in the middle row is of major concern for me. I have two small children and would feel very uncomfortable letting either of them sit in one of these seats. Really, anyone, for that matter. Does anyone know of a safe aftermarket application to install a shoulder belt restraint? If I can only resolve this one issue, i will buy one in a minute (or however long it takes to find one).

are your still using your child seats? if so, use them. strap child seat down using the lap belt, and use the five point child harness in the seat.
if not, you'd have to check into this, but sometimes you can get five point racing harnesses, check with a local performance store or racing shop - they might be able to help you. i like the five point harnesses better anyway.
