Webasto Fuel Burning heater

Picked one up from a Rover 75, complete with intake and exhaust silencers for 50.

It does have a slight coolant leak, But I'll be stripping it down to decoke the burner assembly, so will be fitting a new gasket set anyway.

Undecided yet whether to control it through a 7 day timer, RF plipper remote, or just a switch somewhere.

Ill do a bit of a how to as I go.

Great bit of kit when working, had one in a Ford Galaxy Once. The PCB burnt out and at the time, repairing wasnt an option and the replacement price was daft. Now adays the PCB's can be repaired 99% of the time, theres a fella in France who does it for a decent price including postage.

You might need a fuel pump. I've known a few people who've retro fitted them and run it from a little fuel cell in the boot.

Remote control activation is great as you can click it on from your house and finish your coffee while the truck warms up.

went and hid in the garage whilst X factor was on.

Burner has been decoked, combustion fan, water pump and glow pin checked, and the source of the slight water leak found and cured.

Been looking at the webasto for my navara and one thing I don't get is how it transfers the heat into the cab.

I get that once the heater is turned on it will heat the water in the coolant system but how would it heat the truck up without the engine running and the fans blow in the hot air.

Or does the webasto only speed up the time it takes to heat the truck when engine is running.

Depends on how you configure the heater. For use a supplementary heater it is just plumbed into the coolant system. It can either be activated remotely to heat up the engine before you want to use the truck, either via a manual switch, RF remote control, or a timer, similar to a central heating timer.

Another method of activation, used on the Rover 75 is with an ignition on signal fed via a 5 degree thermal switch, sensing ambient temperature, so on cold days, the heater kicks in once the truck is started, and this speeds up engine warm up.

They can also be used as auxiliary heaters whereby an output from the heater is used to wake up the trucks aircon panel once the coolant is up to temperature, In order to do this a tapping is required into the aircon panel so it is possible to energise it via a relay with the ignition switched off.

I did look into getting a remote start system installed so that the truck could be started and left to heat up, defrost the windows etc.

The webasto would be good as the auxiliary heater as you described just wonder how long it could run for before it flattened the battery

It is simpler than that, just getting the heater matrix warm is enough to circulate hot air.

Landmann,

Do you have a webasto fitted?

If so what's your opinion of them.
