    General T5 Technical
    Hi, Just got a 2010 T5 which has a faulty sliding door sensor. The dealer has shipped a new part out to save me a 2hr drive each way and the Wales bridge toll.

    Hi all, My passenger door lock is having a fit, and keeps on locking itself and all the other locks. I can see elsewhere on the forum that this is likely to be one of 2 things; wiring fault in the door or fault in the lock - that little spring thingy. When I pull the knob up on the...

  9. Can I replace a lost lockable fuel cap?

    I rather stupidly drove out of a petrol station and onto a dual carriageway with my fuel cap still on the roof... It bounced off and was probably knocked further down the road by a passing car or squashed under a lorry, never to be seen again. It was a lockable screw cap - opened by my ignition...

    I've just redone my passenger side door handle cable, now it's back together and having cleaned out the door mechanism with WD40, when I pull the lock the door no longer has that initial 'spring open' stage where it pushes away from the door frame, it just opens freely as if it was never latched...
