  2. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi Folks, 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? Cheers

    Hi All, 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...
