Thanks much for the prompt response. I go to the dealer tomorrow for an oil/filter change (38K), and I'll take a pass on the fuel filter change. There have been no noticable problems and I just had it changed at 28K.
I like the Sprinter (compared to the 2001 Ford E450 diesal
cut-away I used to have). However, the cost of routine service is expensive, and I don't have the time,inclination or skill/tools to do it myself.

Does anyone have info on a source for GOOD FITTING (not Pacific) sliding windows? Google search isn't turning up much.
#1038 of 1281 2007 Sprinter A/C question
May 03, 2007 (9:33 pm)
We're considering the 2007 144" short roof Sprinter passenger van for a southern climate. I presume the roof-mounted A/C would be required to keep the interior comfortable?

Just took delivery of an 07 144 tall roof with dual air, here in southern Ca. desert.
It's already been over 100 degrees and the dual air for me is mandatory, not a luxury item.
With the Dual air I got the 200 amp alternator.

driving from Texas to CA on I-10, I never needed the rear AC except when first entering the van after being parked in the sun. The outside temp was 90-113 the whole way. The front AC worked just fine to keep the cab cool in the passenger 140shc.

They don't carry a window that fitd the contours and radius of the window cutouts.

Hi Folks: Today, Daimler pays $650 million to get rid of Chrysler! In a blink, all Dodge Sprinters became orphans. We have a legal parent who doesn't know us, and we have a biological parent who is not obligated to us. I think we are in trouble!

Whoever bought the company also buys the debt and the obligations. No one's warranty is in jeopardy. "Dodge" will probably continue to sell Sprinters; unless the company that bought Chrysler just sells off all the assets to pay for the purchase and make a little walking-around money. Then look at the bright side; in 20-30 years your Sprinter will be an oddity collectors item, like my Corvair trucks!
Parts are all from Germany, anyway.
