  1. Inner Stub Shaft for 4Motion

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

    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...
