Talking my first van :) iv got rrandom wires everywhere!

Hi all

just bought my first ever van (a vito 110cdi) for 250 quid driveshaft had snapped so it was a non driver when i bought it 530pm had both drive shafts repalced for 1030 then went to drive off and she died.... some bas&^%$ had syphoned out my diesel and stole my filler cap! haha so she must have been running on the fuel filter before hand

anyway the story goes like this (from \the guy i bought it from)

well i locked my keys inside so screw drivered the side door untill it opened
the wires under the dash caught fire so i pulled as many wires as i could out from under the dash till it stopped the windows where wired to the stereo (electric windows)

central locking dont work

never serviced the car just topped up oil as and when needed (3years)

dash odometer does not light up

battery is dead as dead gets

sounds like the manifold is blowing (how the h£1l do i get to that!)

oh and there is a small infestation of spiders (8 legged freaks)

so iv got alot of work ahead of me! but iv driven her and she goes like a rocket! bit of white smoke but only at first

so yea criticism (only constructive please im new
looking forward to being an active member of the forum
