  1. Security
    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 šŸ¤£
  4. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    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...

  10. 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...
  11. Engine & Gearbox
    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...
  12. General T4 Chat
    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...

    Hello All, First Post here. It seems everyone talking about Camper conversions. What about other conversions? I thinking to buy a LWB 180 bhp four motion DSG van with double side loading doors and convert it to a Caravelle or a luxury kombi. Would i need to register it with DVLA? If so it is...

    I'm looking into getting some seat-covers for the rear captains chairs in my Caravelle. It's got the alcantara leather seats which are lovely, but a little too nice for a pair of messy kids - I figure a decent seat cover will also protect the leather from the car-seat being permanently installed...
  17. General Technical
    I am clearing out the back of my T4 Caravelle (1999) and I have come across the rear air conditioning unit behind the trim, on the drivers side right at the back. It is not like similar units I have read about, there is no vent on the window. There are tubes going through the floor and seem to...

    Hi All, can anyone help me identify this part under my 2001 Caravelle? It's underneath, behind the drivers seat, and I believe it is part of the heating for the passengers in the back? The case is damaged and I need a new one, but I don't know it's called or what I should ask for? Any help...
