  2. Steering Rack Popped, pump as well?

    Steering & Suspension
    Hello all, I appear to have a problem with the steering rack on my 2005 2.5, but I can't find any info about the T5 rack on here. Any advice appreciated.

  3. Tow bar bike rack recommendations

    General Van Chat
    Hi What is recommended for a tow-bar mounted bike rack? Need to carry 2x bikes, ideally tilting and not too much stuff directly over the tow ball that would foul doors. MAIN CONSIDERATION is not having the handlebars or pedals getting anywhere near the doors! Any suggestions? (Note: Van...
  4. VR6 Velle Steering Rack & Exhaust at war!

    Steering & Suspension
    Hi I have a T4 Caravelle LWB VR6 Auto and love it. I have had this for 3 years now and have just removed my second steering rack due to the exhaust grinding a grove in the rack and causing a leak. When in situ the exhaust is resting on the rack and the join of the outer shell of the exhaust...

  6. Hollywood F2 over the top bike rack for spoiler

    General T5 Chat
    Has anyone tried one of these? Reading some literature from the states these may work on a T5 with spoiler without the need of a tow bar....about £200 too. Is this a solution many have been seeking or a waste of time? Trying to avoid the cost of towbar and rack.

  8. T4 bike carrier

    Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Can anybody please recommend a bike carrier (2 bikes) to fit a T4 with rear barn doors. It has a towbar so I know that will accommodate a carrier but are there any racks that will fit on the doors? Many thanks.

  14. How to... fit removable surfboard racks to a Hi Top

    T5 Conversions

    Hi all. I finally got around to having a bit of a clear out and the thing taking up the most space is the motorbike rack that came with my van when I bought it. I'm pretty sure that the previous owner said it was for a 50cc Minibike or Minimoto, but I don't ride myself so might have got that...
