    Hi, I have a 1999 Caravelle. The drivers side central looking doesn't work. Locking the drivers door doesn't lock the other doors, and locking the passengers door locks every door except for the drivers. I was told by the previous owner that it was disconnected by the previous owner before him...

  4. Bertie Gets A Lick Of Paint

    I was very lucky to find this gem a few years ago, VGC and 36k on the clock when I bought it. Did the conversion myself and recently decided to get some cosmetic issues tidied up and the roof painted. Very happy! The Project Shop at Trevett T5 in Swindon are pretty awesome with T4's, can't fault...

    Hi all. Am after some advice. We have a 2013 Caravelle Edition 25 that we use as a day van / camper. I’m looking to add a leisure battery with electric hook up and also an external diesel heater. My question is, how difficult are both these jobs as a DIY? And if it’s better to leave it the...

    Hi, I desperately need to know how to remove the Inner door panel/trim from my 2005 T5 Caravelle without damaging it so I can fix the door mechanism. At the moment my van is not secured and anyone could get in. I have worn out google and my keyboard searching for a how-to guide or a youtube...

    Hi All Looking for some T4 wisdom. Has anyone successfully managed to refit Caravelle doorcards once the black plastic clips have dropped off the inside? I've recently purchased a tidy Caravelle and I found that the doorcards on the sliders are secured with small screws. After investigating...

    Evening all. Does anyone know if you can buy adapters to go into the caravelle rails strong enough for a seat. Doesn't look like you can buy them from VW (probably cost a arm and a leg anyway) I have an idea for a build but this might stop me at the start 🤣

    Hi All, at long last, I've realised a dream and have agreed the purchase of aT4 caravelle for conversion to a camper - it's a 2002, and it's generally it's in good shape, with minimal rust and corrosion, however on closer inspection underneath I did notice that the metalwork which holds the...

  16. Engine & Gearbox
    Good afternoon all, I have a 1999 Caravelle 2.8L VR6 Petrol (automatic). Unfortunately the auto gearbox has given up. I've tried changing the fluid (using the correct fluid) and the filters, but no joy. After hours of reading posts on automatic gearbox issues, repairing the box and...

    Hello all, I've been having auto gearbox issues. I've got a 1999 Caravelle 2.8 petrol automatic. It shifts from 1st into 2nd fine, but instead of shifting into 3rd, it drops to neutral then back into 2nd. It won't shift into 3rd. It was fine in January, then wasn't driven for 6 months. I...

    Hey all, Does anybody know what the black boxes behind the wheel arches of a T4 Caravelle are? I think they may be a vent but not sure, theres no cut out on the van on the other side so maybe vent to underneath? there's no wires going in or out. See below. Cheers!

    Hey Guys, What are your thoughts on keeping the original carpet in the Caravelle for use as insulation and put my lino/vineer over it? It's a plastic covered foam with carpet over it. I'm thinking if it's good enough for VW it'll probably do the job? Can anybody see any problems with this...
