T4.5 Eurovan Coolant Bottle Bracket Adapter

We make a custom adapter for a T4.5 Eurovan Coolant Bottle Bracket Adapter the other day. A customer needed a new coolant reservoir for their 2001 VW Eurovan VR6 MV. The part supplier sent me the wrong reservoir (Ordered a Ver E, but they send me a Ver C – I needed 701 121 407 E / 701121407E). The Ver C is for ’99-’00 Eurovans with a 12v VR6. All the connectors and hoses are the same. Additionally, this reservoir is 180º off from the correct part that we needed. Ver E coolant reservoirs are no longer available (NLA) and almost impossible to find. We searched many suppliers, European and USA. We came up with zero results. Ver C is available, although it is also difficult to find. They are available special ordered new from Europe. If you need a Ver C reservoir, we can get one for you.

How we did it

We did not want to find a used one. Instead of spending time finding a new one, we drafted a file in Fusion 360. Then we 3d printed this bracket with a FDM printer. We printed this bracket with Polycarbonate Carbon Fiber (25%CF/75%Poly). This bracket is safe up to 220c / 428ºF. This will adapts Ver C bottles with the overflow return on the left / drivers side. These other tanks are readily available. Furthermore, this will fit so the left / drivers side electrical connection (coolant level sensor) fits the configuration for Eurovans with the Ver E bottles. Fits 2001+ T4.5 Eurovan / Transporter / Caravelle – 24v Engines, with the bottle that mounts to the core support. We also installed some brass inserts so we can just bolt it right in and the tank can be replaced it in the future, if need be.

Version 2.0

We revised our design a little to make it both easier to print and use less material. It’s just as strong as Ver 1.0.
