T4 Eurovan Coolant Bottle Bracket Adapter
We had to make a custom adapter for a T4 Eurovan Coolant Bottle Bracket Adapter the other day. We needed a new coolant reservoir for our customer’s 2001 Volkswagen Eurovan VR6 MV. The warehouse sent me the wrong reservoir (Ver C, and not a Ver E). (701 121 407 E) Apparently these coolant reservoirs are no longer available and almost impossible to find.
Instead of wasting time trying to find a new one, we drafted a file in Fusion 360. Then we 3d printed this bracket. Printed with ePA-CF Carbon Fiber (25%CF/75%Nylon). The bracket is safe up to 220c / 428ºF. This will adapts the older C style bottles with the overflow on the right passenger side (that are readily available) to the left side drivers hose configuration for the Ver E bottles. 2001+ T4.5 – 24v Engines. We also installed some brass inserts so we can just bolt it right in and it can be replaced it in the future if need be.
