We need more info on the van. Most problem areas have been covered on numerous threads which can be found on here but info on miles, history etc would be helpful.

Shit driver.

Look for rust....

Then look again...



Service history & receipts, also with the 2.5tdis - has the clutch, slave cylinder & dual-mass flywheel been changed ('s!!!)


If it's recently had paint then question what is hidden behind

Also worth checking previous mot history & failure / advisories, also good for checking millage

https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk...431.1493579198

Don't buy the first van you see & don't be pressurised to buy because someone else wants it

Don't be afraid of buying a blank-canvas van & converting yourself, genuine Vw middle windows with the rubber trim & bonding kit are less than 80 a side & easily fitted by most diyers http://www.t4srus.co.uk/genuine-vw-t...--03-753-p.asp

Good luck with your search

Rich.

3.Women who pee standing up
