  9. Cali awning rail

    T5 Conversions
    I want to mount an original Cali awning rail on my T5.2 Multivan. Is there any difference between the left side rail (7H7 875 311) and right side rail (7H7 875 312). Are they interchangeable? Suppose not, since part part numbers differ. Anyone who has experience?

    New T5 Members Forum
    My California is in for a routine service and I've been told the driveshaft is extremely worn. It's only done 53k miles. How much should this cost to repair and is this a known issue with this model? I've been quoted £800 by local Bristol specialist (Not VW Heritage)
