  1. Changing clock on 2011 T5

    I cannot work this one out. Changing the clock seems to be as simple as pressing the button on the left to select the clock and then using the right hand button to change. However, when I press the left hand button, it shows, what I presume is the service interval (spanner symbol and seems to...
  2. key batteries

    New T5 Members Forum
    Hi I have just purchased my first Transporter (2011, T5.1) and it has come with only one key.:* I can't order a new one until the log book comes back from the DVLA and the battery appears to be running flat. Can I just pop the back off the key and replace the batteries or do I need to...
  3. Changing a tyre on a T4

    Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi Bought a 2000 T4 and I was wondering if someone could give me details of how to change the tyre if it was flat. I'd rather learn now rather than when it actually happens? I'd appreciate it very much if someone could give me the details or if you know where there might be an online video etc...
  4. My quick guide to flywheel/clutch change - T5 1.9tdi 2005 102

    Engine & Gearbox
    Couldn't find very much info on this subject so had a go at the job myself and thought I’d write a quick guide if anyone else is debating doing the job themselves. Please don’t take this guide to seriously, I have probably left things out and done things wrong as I am no mechanic. Reason for...

  6. VW T5 1.9tdi Oil + Filter change with photos

    Engine & Gearbox
    On advice from a few friends I have changed the oil to give the engine a flush through before a service in a few weeks. With the aim to change it again in a 1000 miles or so. I had a search of the forum and couldn't find anything specifically for a 1.9tdi so I thought I would document it with...
  7. VW T4 2,5 petrol exhaust manifold

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hey everyone, I have a 1995 2,5 petrol T4 which I bought used a while ago. When you are sitting still with the engine at idle, there is quite a strong smell of exhaust coming through the air vents, and when you cold start the car, it has a ticking noise from the engine. Now it's not the valves...

    My log book still has my t4 listed as a van and not a campervan (which it is after conversion). What are the benefits of having it changed to campervan on the log book? Thanks.

  10. What other steering wheel will fit T5

    Steering & Suspension
    Hi, I've just been looking through the pictures of other members vans and I noticed that someone had a flat bottomed steering wheel from a VW GTi. I have a 2007 T32 and wondered if anyone could tell me if this is a straightforward swap over (eg connections for airbag, etc). I know I am in the...

    General T4 Chat
    I may be joining the ranks of the clinically stupid, but i have finally got around to purchasing clear indicators, I know they should have been got a lot earlier but I now cannot seem to work out how the front light cluster comes off to change over the lenses. I spoke to the local VW commercial...
