  2. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi We had an issue with the gear box a week or so back. Essentially it didn't want to go into 5th and 6th. We took it into our local independent VW garage, and they said 5th and 6th gear were essentially destroyed. Given that the van is a 60 plate and has only 60 000 on the clock, this...
  3. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi - I've been noticing a that I am getting more an more problems selecting 5th gear when the van has been running after 10-15 miles. As I lift the clutch I just get the crunch of gears because the cogs haven't fully engaged. It seems ok when cold and double de-clutching doesn't help. The only...

  7. Engine & Gearbox
    I've had a recurring leak with the gear box filler plug on my T4 2.5tdi ACV. Doesn't matter how tight I tighten it (as tight as two hands can) it still leaks, this will be the fourth time now! :confused: Could the plug (with washer) be loosening itself as it's damaged? Can't see any visible...

    Hi, I have just bought a Transporter 2.2TDI T28 2005 with 105k on the clock. Having test driven it there were no issues I could see but now I've noticed the gear change between 2nd and 3rd sort of slips or has the feeling of metal on metal, it's hard to explain but all other gears are fine and...
