    Hi Only my second time posting as I only bought my T4 back in December. Could really do with some advice if anyone is able to help...

    Hello! I'm in the process of repairing the channel where the sliding door runs, and the piece that bolts into the end of the channel is missing. This just means that I can't open the door fully as it will just drop off. Is there anywhere that sells just this part as I can't find one...
