    I replaced my driveshaft in January but for whatever reason the clip came off while driving to the Alps and I spent the next 4 weeks manually pushing the bloody thing back on every 100 miles. Driving on edge of splines has obviously wrecked it again so need to replace the drive shaft and also...

    Hi fellow enthusiasts - and greetings from Denmark! I really need a piece of good advice. I just bought an 8-seater VW Transporter Kombi. Its a T5, 2.5 TDI 4Motion (LWB) that I got cheaply from the military. It is from 2007/8 with 200,000 km on the clock. The good part: It runs amazingly well...

    Hi, Looking to get rid of the 20” Inovit Speedy alloys that my T5.1 came with and looking to get 16” stock VW alloys with tyres. I was about to get some off eBay that had delivery miles on the tyres however the seller said that they wouldn’t fit 180ps vans. Is this correct? Could someone...

    Hi, After 2 years of searching and making do with a Transit I finally have a Transporter. Thankfully the gearbox fell out of my Transit and crushed my drive shaft, decided I'd take the cash the garage offered on it and find a T5 (T5.1 to be specific). As I'm also new to forums, I'm not sure...
  7. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hello I'm new to this site, and new to VW vans. Pre-new in fact as I don't have one yet. What I'm looking for in a van, for now, is: space; flexibility; not getting stuck in muddy fields. It needs to normally hold 5 people (2 adults; 3 kids), but sometimes 6 or 7, take a load of camping...

  12. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    I would like considered opinions on whether to buy a 4motion transporter to convert to a Campervan. I realise this will weigh more and there's more to "go wrong", however it could be useful when stuck in a muddy field. Are there other benefits? More torque? I look forward to hearing your...
