Never again be stuck on the side of the road with a cracked plastic coolant expansion tank! Our new, all-aluminum coolant expansion tank is the perfect replacement for troublesome original plastic tanks in your Vanagon. The last tank you'll ever purchase, our units are made from 100% aluminum and are hand TIG welded for strength and durability.
The 2.1L and 1.9L versions of our tank are a direct fit into your stock coolant bracket. Our Subaru conversion tank comes with a stainless steel mounting bracket and hardware.
This tank comes complete with the correct nipple configuration for your vehicle, a new coolant level sensor installed, and a new Gates Lev-R vented 16# pressure release cap.
Installation: There are two wires going to the stock coolant level sensor plug: a positive (usually green) and a ground (usually brown). We supply new terminals with the tank. Carefully strip the ends of the stock wires and crimp or solder the spade connector to the positive terminal and the ring connector to the ground wire. The positive wire will run to the level sensor contact, and the ground wire ring terminal will attach to the tank bracket via the mounting screw. Fill and bleed the cooling system as per the Bentley manual.
