  1. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi, my 1997 caravelle has rust apearing in all the usual places. I'm looking for a body shop in or close to south devon who will do a good job sorting it out for a reasonable price. Doesn't need to be a perfect exhibition quality job. Just want to keep the van going in reasonable nick for a...
  2. Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    I had rust in two of the usual places - the sill around the grommet underneath the fuel cap and the plate supporting the sliding door roller. I cut out the (most) offending parts and a friend TIG welded some steel sheeting into place using tacks. I know nothing about welding but he says to fill...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
