Stanway rear light bulb change

Post by mjparmy on Tue 29 Aug - 15:10

I am the proud new owner of a Stanway Autosleeper. I am generally pleased with it but have a burning question. How an earth do you access the rear light cluster to change a bulb? I have tried contacting the service department but am unable to speak to anyone there and I have send them an email. I just wondered whether anyone has had to deal with this issue.

Its a good question and I'll be interested to hear the answer when you get it. The access is from the inside and it looks as though interior fittings cover that area.

Ask for Mark Burdett at the AS Service Centre 01386 853511

I would expect acess from inside the cupboard (offside) and in the shower are there two access hatches, the white circles?

That is correct but the drivers side? There are no cut outs or hatches.

Where are the fridge vents. Access to lights through those on other PVCs.

I know it hurts but sometimes one just has to read the handbook!

Thanks Peter but

Peter BrownI too can read a handbook and it doesn't even hurt but, that in itself does not make the access holes in the fabric suddenly appear. There are no access holes and I for one would prefer not to go hacking holes in the fabric where I "think" they should be. I personally would expect that be be the job of the people that carry out the conversions.

I was extremely upset on first reading your post after spending some time trying to help you. Looking again though, I see how you could read that my post was a criticism of you - it wasn't, just intended as light hearted banter that is fairly common on this forum that you have just joined. I apologise if offence was taken but none was meant.

I expect the hole in the trimmed panel will be there but not having access to your van must defer to what you have found.

A photo similar to the one posted by Ploughlin would be most informative, and would either end the discussion or start a new one.   content

The high level rear cupboard in my van has an access to reach the 3rd brakelight/camera. It has a very neat timber cover plug with insulation fixed, difficult to notice unless you look closely. Perhaps similar in the cupboard of the Stanway?

Under the sink and the 2nd shot in the boiler cupboard. Not obvious to me but the most likely.

Struggling a bit to use this forum, no least the uploading of photos. Hopefully these illustrate my query. A good idea to use the phone camera in these very hard to access places. Thanks to all contributors on this topic so far.
