    General Van Chat
    Hi all. I've not posted for.a while. Unfortunately due to covid-19 my work in the Live Music industry has died of late. I had to return to using my amazing van to do deliveries for Hermes. Absolutely gutted but I needed to put food on the table. That has resulted in the list bellow. O/S rear...
  2. Should it worried about this rust under the side-door step?

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    I made the mistake of lifting up the floor on my 2007 T5 that was partially converted by the previous owner.. I wish I hadn't! There is some surface rust around where the cargo hooks were, but I'm confident I can sand these back and treat them myself. I'm more worried about this area under the...

  9. Reimo canvas repair advice please.

    T5 Conversions
    Having had a quick search it appears several have had a hinge cut issue. Perhaps this is now sorted on the later ones as I've not had this problem, though I'm clear that the door needs to be open when closing the roof. My issue is a couple of, thankfully small, rotted holes. These have been...
  10. T5 2.5 Tdi Turbo Replacement?

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...
  11. Clutch Failed

    T4 Syncro Garage
    Hi. My clutch is dropping to the floor. I'm presuming it's a full clutch replacement but there was no noise/squeal when it went. The pedal does not spring back. Is there a way to tell if it's a full clutch or possibly a slave cylinder or cable? Big job to fix if it's a full job? How much...
  12. London (North West) Mechanics / Garages URGENT!

    T5 Conversions
    Hi All. I'm totally new to this and about to demonstrate some possible rookie failings?! Just picked up a T5 LWB Shuttle conversion bought from eBay. I may be about to learn some lessons the hard way. There seem to be more 'issues' with it than were listed - and I need to urgently get a view...
  13. Selector rod repair - Too many pipes!

    Engine & Gearbox
    A few days ago I lost all but 3rd and 4th gears and after a bit of research on here and digging around under and over the van have confirmed that the selector rod has come adrift due to failure of the socket on the gearbox. It's now held together with a beefy zip tie and I'm only missing fifth...
  14. Cuthbert - The LWB Syncro - Build/ repair

    T4 Syncro Garage
    So the long journey of finally fixing up our LWB syncro 'Cuthbert' begins. Had him since 23 August 2010, and done the odd patch up to keep him going, but not alot more - he's done us well though taking us camping in Scotland and Wales. We raised the suspension by about 80mm to fit all terrain...

  16. Door mirror repair - motor runs, but mirror doesn't adjust.

    Hi all. T5 2005 vintage. The near side door mirror does not adjust when operated from the drivers side. I can hear the motor making a noise so I assume the power is getting through - i.e. it isn't a switch issue, broken wire, faulty contact or fuse, etc. I'm assuming there must be some sort of...
  17. Back of seat rip - repair?

    Hi guys, Just been moving furniture in the T4 van, and the foot of a chest of drawers has ripped the back of the passenger seat. It's not a massive tear but it is noticable, and looks like it might get worse. It's sort of an upside-down V shape, and is pretty much in the centre of the back of...
