Thanks for the reassurances. My wife sometimes says I come off as knowing too much, but being a car guy all my life, and still doing my own maintenance stuff, as much as can be done on a Sprinter, I like to "pass it on" so unknowing folks don't get taken advantage of.
Never fails to amaze me talking to other Sprinter owners how much they don't know about their vehicles. They are not Ford or Chevys as far as maintenance needs go. They are very needy & picky compared to the USA brands.
I'm not a Ford guy per se, been GM all my life, but Ford makes a good RV platform. Can't wit for the Transit RV's to start showing so I can remove the Sprinter from my recreational life.. Smile

Thanks Tom.  Don't suppose anyone knows the lug nut size for the E350?  With no lug wrench, I haven't removed the wheel covers yet.  After a bit of searching online, I'm still not sure but I think they are 7/8".   I could buy a tool for multiple nut sizes along with a separate tool to pry the covers but might be able to find a tire tool similar to what was supplied.

    Both of my PCs came with a bottle jack and a lug wrench in the rear trunk.

    You need the lug wrench to pry the hub caps off the wheels. Unlike my class A, the PC has hub caps not wheel liners. With wheel liners you remove two of the caps and the nuts under them, then the liner falls off. Hub cap you just have to pry them off. The caps are part of the hub cap.

Bobojay....I don't think so, You have real world experience with the exact brand engine he had questions on. I certainly learned from your experience.

Hopefully I didn't sound like a "know it all".....Just trying to share what info I learned over the last 6 years of Sprinter ownership, and how to keep it in top shape with the least dealer visits

When I purchased my 2008 PC 2350 it did come with the Jack and and lug wrench. The factory did provide them.

I know the spare is there (and inflated) but don't think the jack is in the tube but will double check.  So, will pick up a 6-ton bottle jack but will need to to determine lug nut size to make sure I get the right size wrench.  I may have a socket that will fit the lugs but probably not with my luck of late.  Thanks for the info everyone.

Ron, that's a good point. Might be worth it to check just to be sure the spare is there.

Hopefully Dale and Cindy got the information they needed. I certainly learned quite a bit.
