Hi everyone, have just discovered on my recent trip that the cabinet door(left hand) under the washbasin is broken.  Looks like it has been stuck with some adhesive at some point.
Do any of you know where it is possible to source replacement ones please?
Many thanks Heidi. wave

Try AS spares, if not I have a pair but believe me they are not cheap. Someone else asked a few weeks ago but never heard from them again. If they break so often, I may be reluctant to sell them.

Thanks for that , will try AS first.
Not sure they break often, just that mine must have been broken before I bought the van, only just spotted that they'd been stuck together, when the door fell off!
Much appreciated,
Heidi.

Hi again have spoken to Alan at AS and he informs me that the washroom doors are no longer available, so you may wish to keep the ones in your possession Paul.
He has offered me 2 solutions to the problem, one involving plastic and Araldite?
The other using wood, Araldite and a piano hinge!
What a wonderful man!  So cheerful and informative.
Not sure I'm up to the challenge, but aim to give it a go in the near future.
Will record any eventual success/failure, at the appropriate time.
Meanwhile should you decide to sell yours, or come across any others, I would be pleased to know.
Many thanks for your advice, as always.

I think it may be a common problem. We discovered the same with our Nuevo after we had bought it 3 years ago now. It was the right hand door that had broken and was stuck with glue which didn't really work. I think it is a bit easier as it is the right hand door as I aim to mainly use the left hand door so haven't bothered to do anything about it. Sorry that probably doesn't help you but it helps me to know it may be a common weakness.

In view of the number of members that have reported such broken doors, I shall be holding on to my spares until I change the van, whenever that may be.

Just come across the post on bathroom doors, I had the same problem. I used car body filler on the corners and then re-drilled to accept an m6 bolt with new plastic spacers and then secured with a nut. I will probably go to my local fibre glass prefabrication company to have them redone. They did my sink for me when that split. Still have the sink mould just in case I need it, but the new sink is pretty strong. I have photos of the doors I repaired and of the sink
