    Engine & Gearbox
    The CV is bad so I'm replacing the right side front axle on my T5. I managed to remove the lower ball joint and steering arm joint so the lower a arm is free. Ive unbolted the middle axle hanger bolts and removed the hub nut. I bashed the axle in with a sledgehammer and some shock lube. It's...

    General Technical
    Hi, I know that my bushes are gone and I also know the CV Joint is gone! I have a 2001 T4 800 Special SWB model. Does anybody know where I can get these replacement parts? I need them cheap as possible, but obviously not crappy 3rd party stuff. Thanks in advanced!

  8. Has anyone got a front outer CV joint, need some measurements

    Engine & Gearbox
    I'm just trying to see if I can use the front outer CV joints on the rear of my Syncro.

  9. Speed related knocking when turning

    Steering & Suspension
    Ive done a few searches on this and found people with similar problems but never a solution. I haven't had time to get under the van yet. Maybe this weekend weather permitting. I have a knocking sound when driving at about half lock (left and right). The knock gets faster as i accelerate...
