I replaced my driveshaft in January but for whatever reason the clip came off while driving to the Alps and I spent the next 4 weeks manually pushing the bloody thing back on every 100 miles. Driving on edge of splines has obviously wrecked it again so need to replace the drive shaft and also...
Has anyone changed the gearbox drive shaft oil seals on a T4, 2.5 tdi 2001? I would call them the half shafts/stub axles.
Hoping it can be done without stripping the gearbox.
Do they just pop out? On a split ring?
trying to fit the drivers side drive shaft back to the gearbox, and i can't get it back in the gap, dropped the under tray to try and wangle a little more room to squeze it through but still no joy, not been able to losen off the torsion bar bolt as dont own a spanner big enough...
I have a problem with a T5 where I have a knocking noise coming from the front driver wheel. I have no problem changing or selecting a gear, and the noise disappears when the drive is under load or when the brakes are applied. The knocking appears when the van is cruising. I have jacked the...

Hi guys....I'm about to change the drivers side drive shaft on my 07 2.5 because I get a "clunk" as I pull away. Now I've done a search and read loads of bits and pieces about it BUT is there a "how to" anywhere?
and where's the best place to buy the parts ?
Thanks in advance T:
Hope I can get some quick advice here...
Took my van in for a service - it's at 45k, so wasn't expecting anything to really crop up. However, I'd noticed there were different sized gaps between the front tyres and wheel arches on the off and near side, so wondered; if the subframe...
I've just spent the last couple of days changing over the suspension on my T5:
New dampers and 30mm lowered springs top bushes and bearing changed
New ARB bushes
New Drop links
All done and certainly feels nice and tight however whilst doing the drivers side the CV joint 'came apart' I wiggled...
Having what seems to be the usual question with a T32 2.5L BNZ engine - no drive when selected into gear with a sound like either splines not meshing or gears not engaged.
Anyone got any tips for diagnosing without a costly pre Christmas visit to a garage?

Everyone here seems to say drive shaft and we think it is as noise is coming from osf

Just fitted a brand new outer CV joint to my T4 but having taken it up the road to test it I'm now getting an awful grinding noise from that area. There also feels like a bit of resistance when I pull away like the brakes are sticking a little.
It had been left on axle stands for a...

My '94 2.0 T4 recently failed it's MOT due to a perished CV boot. I'm halfway through a re-fit but having removed the CV joint from the hub assembly I now find that I can't get the CV joint to pop off the drive shaft.
Following some advice I drove...

Also have 4 x hubs for 16" T5 wheels. One is...
