    Hi all, My 2004 T5 2.5 tdi (axe) 6 speed manual, has the axle / stub axle problem... Feels like you drive a van with all engine mounts broken... But the question is what stub axles and inner cv joints do I need for the repair? I'm ordering from autodoc and have multiple choices from the...

    Found MANNOL engine oil on eBay it looks like it covers alot of VW specs if it does it's like a wonder oil lol , but it's really cheap . Also says it covers 505.01 and 506.01 But the in description says 504.00/507.00/502.00/505.00/503.01/506.00/ VW 505.01*/506.01** *Except VW PDU engines...
  3. General T5 Technical
    My alternator was very noisy and the luck-up pulley was slipping at high revs - I had sourced an alternator and I realised very quickly its a really ty job so I had been putting off for ages. I spent a lot of time looking for details but there isn't a whole lot about so I gave it a crack and...
  4. Engine & Gearbox
    In the process of completely stripping down an AXE engine and wondering if anyone else has attempted doing this? There are a lot of unusual things with the R5 engine but it all seems relatively straight forward. Let's see if I still feel the same way when it comes to rebuilding the thing and...
  5. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, Van is on 220000 km (~136701.662 miles according to google's conversation it seems). Normally only using van around every second weekend. In February I let the main dealer replace the water pump for pre-cautionary reasons as the kilometers were beyond for when it was due to be replaced...
  6. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi folks I did this job a few months ago and just haven't had time to turn my own oily hand-written notes into something more presentable that I can share with you lot. Until now. Here you go: Difficulty: Definitely falls into the intermediate to advanced bracket. You should have at least...
  7. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, I'm rebuilding my 2.5 AXE after it exploded a couple of weeks ago (something shot out of the front AND back of the block). It comes back next week from the engineers who have reconditioned it, and I'm looking for the torque settings for injector bolts, rocker bolts and clutch if anyone has...
  8. New T5 Members Forum
    Hello everyone I've been a member here for a while now, but I'm only just getting round to actually buying a T5. And the big question (for me) is - which one? It has to be LWB, and windows and rear seats would be great, but could be added. But which engine? My heart says 174, my head says 104...
  9. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi guys and gals, Hoping you can help. Took the van for a spin today with its new wheels and exhaust (Cat Back Twin Duplex from Cybox) and all was going well. Van was running sweet and been on a short run earlier in the day. I gave it some beans up the slip road to join the motorway...

    Hi Everyone, I just thought I'd share my experiences with my 2.5 TDI 174 Caravelle EGR valve. Over the past couple of weeks, I have experienced loss of power on a couple of occasions. After scanning with VCDS after the power loss, the following fault was recorded: 16683/P0299/000665 - Boost...

    Building an Engine, 2.5 AXE. Bought the correct timing tools (snap on) to get the timing right. Followed instructions but when the crankshaft and camshaft locking tools are in place the mark on the camshaft (around 3oclock), does not line up exactly with the edge of the head. Will this affect...

  13. Engine & Gearbox
    Several 130 or AXD and 174 or AXE motors have had 'Catastrophic failure' documented on this forum,it would be interesting to see if it is a repeating scenario. It starts with a misfire,progresses to difficult starting with pointing uphill/downhill sometimes making a difference, and ends with a...
