  2. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Looking for some views on how well after market fitted windows can fit a LWB T5.1? I have had some fitted with both middle and rear windows. The rear windows touch the metal work in the top rear corner on both sides and have a larger gap at the bottom. The gap between the windows is wider at the...
  3. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Just purchased myself a tatty old T4 as a rolling project, and the van is pulling to the left. Took it into my local tyre shop for the tracking/alignment to be adjusted and they said the rear tracking was out but could not be adjusted? :confused: However they compensated for this by adjusting...
  4. Wheels & Tyres
    My rear tyres are wearing out very quickly on the outside edges, the right (o/s) is worse than the left (n/s). Had all 4 tyres replaced 12 months ago, the fronts are fine, but the back right is going to get me an advisory on MOT this month for sure. I showed the tyre place how to adjust the...

  9. General T5 Chat
    Hi all, just a word of warning really, I have had my new Sportline (2011) for a little over 6 months and recently noticed the front tyres were nearly worn down to the markers after only 5250 miles :eek: I knew this wasn't normal because I ran my old Sportline (2007) for 20000 miles before...
