That switch controls all the electricals not the engine or a/c in specific. It has more then 8 positions for various combinations.

Welcome to one of the best-kept secrets about the Gypsy !!!

The usual workaround : add extra rubber beading in the door. Usually, it leaks from under the dash, if the A/c equipment has been mounted, and the A/c guys didnt seal the holes for the coolant liquid pipes properly.

Check if you can get a single roof mounted unit : i think it should be more effective/space-saving than the blower under the dash.

Tyres : my vote would go for the Geolandars
Rim : you can mount 235/75/15 on stock Gypsy rims : headers has done that. But please check with him regarding the effect on steering lock-to-lock.

Hi KSM - Vtec,

I know exactly how you feel.
I have had two Gypsy's myself and both of them leaked - especially under the dashboard and usually directly onto my foot which was on the accelerator. As someone else on the forum said - one of the Gypsy's best kept secrets!!!!

I tried everything possible and finally the one thing which helped was to block off the vents which are under the front windscreen (just behind the bonnet). That helped quite a bit. If you choose not to do this then make sure the drains from this section which come out inside the engine bay (on the firewall) are not choked. Leaves etc. go into the grille/vent under the windscreen and block the drains thus causing the water to leak into the cabin.

Don't bother with extra beading around the doors or silicon around the front windscreen. It won't help. Been there, done that!!!!

Hope the above helps.

Regards,

SS
