Try Parts Gateway - they quite often come up with the goods. It sends your request for parts to many scrap dealers, and it is surprising how many reply.


PS - happy hunting!

No longer motorhoming due to illness, but always prepared to help by sharing any experience I may have.

There is no Panhard Rod on the rear of a standard Master of that era so you may have trouble. I assume that with the air suspension the standard steel springs are rmoved hence the need for some lateral location.

I own the Renaultmaster-List at yahoogroups; an e-mail list for owners / enthusiasts of the Renault Master.

There are a couple of breakers listed in the files section, one being Vic Barlow who specialises in commercial vehicle breaking and certainly used to be a good source of the older Master parts. They are up north somewhere: a google should find their location.

There are a few members of the RM-List who have ambulance conversions who may have more idea about the rear suspension than I do.

I think that the detail of ambulance rear air suspension tended to vary according to the converter so knowing who that was may be of some help.

You are quite welcome to join the RenaultMaster-List. No charges invloved and you do *not* have to get a yahoo mail address to join.

If you are really really stuck I guess it may be possible to re-convert the rear end to standard steel springs.

I hope that helps a bit ....
