    Hi folks, your thoughts please. As the title states. I have a 2.8 VR6 Auto on a 99. When the engine is running there is a hissing sound from underneath the drivers side Dashboard behind the clocks. Having stripped dashboard down, engine running, no air can be felt. Upon the depressing of...

    Hey t4 fans! My question is if anybody out there knows if a 1994 t4 2.5 Petrol wiring is the same as a diesel. The problem is that when i was welding some rust my t4 petrol took fire and i didn't manage to extinguish it in time. The fusebox and all cables to the dashboard got melted (all cables...

    Here is the best part of my week on the van, well waiting time anyway, have started customising the Donor dashboard (£40 bargain). Thought about the screens/ipad/etc fitted in but havent got the money to buy them so have just decided to smooth over the dash, for a change of look. Donar dash...

  6. General Van Chat
    I am about to take delivery of a converted T5 GP. However, the cab interior is a bit bland. I am therefore looking at doing a couple of jobs to it as a start - 1) The main job I am thinking of doing is to carpet the floor. Has anyone done this? I know you can buy large mats but I am thinking...

    Got a single DIN double cup holder out of an 'N' Reg VW Polo and set about grafting it into the van. Really wanted a factory fit look. Had to stop for the afternoon to spend time with the family. Should hopefully finish it off tomorrow. Just have to sand a few more edges to get it to fit spot...

    I have a T5 Auto, LWB, 2.5 TDI '09 plate. Currently it does not have a computerised display in the dash. My question is, can I retro fit a system out of (do not know which model) into this. Reasons are to show fuel economy.
  9. Brakes
    I know this has been covered countless times in other threads, I have trawled through them but have not really found what I wanted to know. Since I picked up my van a couple of weeks back (a 2001 800 Special Panel Van), the brake pad warning light has been on. I initially though it might be as...

    Hi all, Looking for some advice about my 'P' Reg T4... Basically a few months back I had to have a fuel leak fixed and to do this the garage took off the whole front to get to the throtle body seal. Since I got the van back there has been a very loud beeping noise coming from the dashboard. Its...

  15. Customising / Modding
    This one's been racking my brains for a week or so now. I've seen a few threads on here about changing the colour of dashboards and other interior plastic parts and it got me thinking. a few years ago (read 10) i had a vauxhall nova... ..pause for heckling.. ... and i replaced the...

    I am looking for either new or very good bumpers for a 53 plate ex-aa van in the standard plastic finish, And a replacement dashboard which (from reading the forum) needs to be post-99. Any combination, but postage needed, although we're in North Devon if you're close. Thanks.

The lights are working outside and they all come on when i turn the ignition on for a few seconds (as usual). The back lights...
