  1. Leisure battery advice

    Hi fellow VW owners, I am currently re-doing a camper I bought. Had all the units and bed etc but not much else so I am in the process of electrifying the back :) exciting stuff (pun intended ;) ) Anyway, I have been looking at leisure batteries (obviously) and I'm not entirely sure what I need...
  2. Hacking Dimatec Spa touch sensitive lights

    Hey everyone - I've just installed the lighting in my van. Went for touch-sensitive Dimatec Spa LEDs, mainly so that I can vary the number of lights that are on. I've rigged a switch straight off the regulator so that I can turn all the lights off. My main questions are: 1) Is there a way to...
  3. Rear Internal Lights

    The two ceiling lights in my T5 haven't worked since I fitted a new ceiling. They have power but don't work. Having said that, they both came on very dimly the other day when the front cabin light was set on 'door'. The front cabin light dimmed (and stayed dim) and they came on in the back (both...

  5. Vibration When Turning On Lights

    When my T4 is idling and I turn on the lights there is a vibration sound which seems to be coming from deep within the engine. I'm thinking the alternator is on its way out or something is loose in it causing it to rumble/vibrate when a load comes on it. Anyone else have similar issues?

  7. Red 5, build and re-build!!

    SWB Garage (All Versions)
    I’d like to introduce myself, I started off on here as passattdi but swapped to Red5 as it was more appropriate. I bought this in Oct 2010, it had 134k on the clock but a full history as an ex-lease van and it was all straight. This was the shiniest it ever looked as I’m not as good as the...
  8. Interior lights for the rear of a T4 or T5 van

    VAG Parts For Sale
    These are the interior lights that fit in the rear of either a T4 or a T5 van. As you can see from the pictures, one pair are a lighter tint than the others but when fitted with LED bulbs they will be bright enough. Each pair of lights include the connector and a short length of wire plus they...
  9. Interior LEDs Installed - Very Blue

    I finished the install of two of these, stuck to the inner bezel of my skylight that thanks to their super low consumption, are powered off the interior light. I've changed the middle and rear festoons for blue LEDs and the cab light to a 9 LED panel. I've also fitted lovely LED rear lights from...
  10. T4 interior light with extra map reading light

    VAG Parts For Sale
    This is the interior light which fits a T4 and has the extra map reading light fitted. The light comes with the plug and enough wire to splice this into your existing lighting circuit. There are four wires in the plug and I believe that one of these is for the power for the map reading light. I...

  13. Zig cf9 outputs/lights

    T4 Conversions
    I have just been playing around installing a zig cf9 into my van, I am going to buy a set of the diodes lights from ikea to run from the zig unit. As I understand I think I Ned a 12v regulator between the lights and the zig to stop me blowing the bulbs. I have had the zig connected to the...
  14. New Rooflight... Party Van!

    Hey guys n gals. 37890739 I took inspiration from the backlit dancefloors you see in the movies and some clubs. It's a 5ft round white perspex table top from the company I work for (given, not stolen :) ), backlit by a 5m led strip and mounted on 4mm 8x4 sheet, which mounted very easily to...

  16. Downlight recommendations please

    Looking for some downlighters to run direct of the leisure battery. I've heard these Ikea ones are good http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00119933 But it's a bit of a drive to my nearest Ikea. Anyone know if B&Q, Homebase or Wickes do something similar?? Cheers Scott
  17. Should both my lights come on in the back when I open doors?

    forget the front cabin that's ok. In the back of my T5 there are two diagonally opposite lights in the roof lining. When a door is opened only the front one comes on. They both work if you click them on directly and I've swapped the units to check the unit works on door mode so it's the wiring...
