Accessing water heater

Post by andygump on Wed Oct 25, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi   

Are there any Topaz owners who have gained access to the water boiler under the offside bench seat.

Can you advise me.  There is a panel with a finger hole which is obviously the way to the boiler but the top cushion doesn't move forward enough to remove the panel

Cheers 

Andy

Andy I'm not sure if the Topaz layout is the same as the one I had on my 1995 VW Trophy, but if it is then I'd be happy to pass on help or ideas. On my Trophy o removed the entire offside seat bench and then disconnected, moved and reinstalled the water heater closer to the driver's seat....all involved quite a bit of getting to know the heater! Feel free to PM my if you'd like to chat by phone or PST ant replies here.

Andy, Sorry, I missed this post when you first asked this question. The cover panel moves sideways over the left hand section of the bench seat. It's a bit of a fiddle until you get used to it.
Remove the seat back to give more space.  Remove two screws from the front edge of the panel. There may be a third at the back of the panel accessed through the void where the seat back was located. Remove the circular plastic cap positioned over the drain tap position. This will give you a useful hand hold.
You now need to lift the panel and slide it to the left. Press the release lever for the bench seat down, as if you intended to pull the bench seat out.  You will now be able to slide the panel to the left and reveal the water heater and the habitation battery.
