    I have been informed I have a leaking o ring behind the crank sensor. I've been looking all over but don't really know what I am looking for. If anyone has come across this before and knows what o ring would work and could get a link my way that would be much appreciated! Photo to confirm it is...

    Hi, I removed the interior panel on my side door today and all my insulation was wet below the handle and in the bottom right corner. It appears water is somehow getting in through the handle. Anyone had the same problem or a solution to stop the water getting in? Thanks

    I need to replace at least one of the leak off pipes on my 1993 1.9d as it’s wet with diesel. I’ve read that I need braided cable, but I’m not sure of the size 3.5mm or 3.2mm? Can anyone recommend a decent supplier? I want to get good quality so it lasts.

    Advice please? I've just bought a nearly-new T6 Kombi from a VW dealer. After it rains, when I open the tailgate I can hear water sloshing in the cavity, and (if parked on a slope) water dribbles out of the interior holes! Here's a video: https://vimeo.com/313958598/e7241c05b4 The seals...

    Hello! My T4 is losing water. It's gradually got worse so now I can lose the max to min level in about 200 miles (and I drive about 80 to and from work every day). Coolant seems to be coming out multiple pipes at the bottom of the engine near the thermostat and the radiator. I've...

    I have a LWB T5 converted by Camper King. I've noticed when I fill the fresh water tank using a hose, that quite a lot of water continues to run out under the van after I've filled it. I assume this is the overflow, but it also comes out when I brake. I spoke to Camper King and they assured me...

    Hi folks, I have recently had the camshaft/bearings and water pump replaced (common problems) on my T5 transporter, it cost me $3,300.00 AU in the end to get it all done by a European vehicle specialist. Whilst performing this work the mechanic found that the turbo exhaust gaskets are leaking...

    I've seen a few threads from people saying they've had a problem with the new inflatable Vango Awnings. I've got the Supera and I've found that after heavy rain , there is always a puddle under one of the inflatable struts. (obviously the lowest one) I believe the water is tracking down the...
