I have a 2008 T5 and noticed the sliding door paintwork is chipping off at the top left corner.
It seems to be hitting the passenger door when closing it. Maybe I'm using too much force when closing it but it seems to need it.
Both doors look like they are in good alignment.
New to the forum and my first post after recently purchasing a T5 camper van :)
My sliding door panel has started to come away and I can see the clips that used to hold it in place.
I believe these are the ones: VW T5 TRANSPORTER SLIDING DOOR GUIDE RAIL COVER TRIM CLIPS SIDE 7H0843514...
The middle door roller (the one at the back) on my 2007 T5 is about to fail. I replaced the bottom one not long ago thanks to a guide I found online. But for the middle roller I can find plenty of guides for T4s but none for T5s.
At a guess it looks like there's a bodywork panel I need to...
Hi all. A bit has just dropped off my T4 when I opened the sliding door. It fits in the frame at the top left.
Does anyone know if this is all of it?
Does it have a name/part number?
Does anyone have a spare?
Thanks in advance :confused:
So my sliding door did not open anymore, only after serious janking.
I got the access from the outside fixed.
Basically I had to fix a metal rod back in place with a fiddly white piece of plastic, see attachment. After that lots of WD40 and all was rolling again.
Now I am still struggling...
Hey all, what is the best lubricant to use on lock mechanisms? I hear WD40 is a no...
My sliding door won't unlock on central locking or with the key. Going to take the door panel off tomorrow and pretend I know what I'm doing with the lock.
I removed the interior panel on my side door today and all my insulation was wet below the handle and in the bottom right corner. It appears water is somehow getting in through the handle.
Anyone had the same problem or a solution to stop the water getting in?
Hi, I desperately need to know how to remove the Inner door panel/trim from my 2005 T5 Caravelle without damaging it so I can fix the door mechanism. At the moment my van is not secured and anyone could get in.
I have worn out google and my keyboard searching for a how-to guide or a youtube...
First time post here.
I started to insulate my '95 Caravelle a few weeks ago. All was good until I had completed the sliding door. Stupidly I tried to squish the door panel back on and screw it on (this didn't work so decided to leave it off) but as soon as I had tried this, the...
so soon I will be attempting to cut out and weld in a new step section salvaged from another bus. I am not a very experienced welder however I have made some repairs to my van in the past. Anyway...is there anything I need to know before attempting this? Do I need to brace the van...
I have received a quote for both sides sills to be welded and I including my sliding door lower runner, the guy is not too far from me and his work looks excellent as far as I can see (I’m no welder though) and he has quoted me £850 including panels. I was just wondering if that sounded like a...
I don't suppose someone can tell me where the Sliding Door Control Unit Module is located? I'm having some problems with the sliding door on my T5 shuttle, errors from VCDS:
02356 - Data transfer to sliding door electrical error in circuit
02356 - Pinch protection open circuit
Hi everyone, sorry my first post is to ask for help! Hopefully i'll be able to help out too one day!
A friend of mine has been doing t4's for a while now and couldnt resist joining in and got myself a 1998 1.9td.
Im excited about the whole process really, other than sorting out rust! theres a...
When you open the sliding door of my T4, the interior LEDs in the ceiling all come on. This is ok, apart from I can't see how to switch them off without closing the door!
There are at least 7 other light switches in the van which all control some or all of these LEDs, all set up by previous...
New to the forum but have had a couple of Transporters over the years (T5 then T5.1). The current one is a semi-converted panel van (R&R Bed, storage units, & spinning double front bench), with some styling (lowered, Stormer rims, fat tyres, etc) - I can't take credit for any of...
Has anyone had a problem with the sliding door thinking it is open after hitting a bump in the road. I have changed both of the switch contacts in the door and in the B-pillar but still have the issue. Where is the next likely place to be effected by a bump? Opening and closing the door clears...
I'm in the process of repairing the channel where the sliding door runs, and the piece that bolts into the end of the channel is missing.
This just means that I can't open the door fully as it will just drop off.
Is there anywhere that sells just this part as I can't find one...
Recently started our first T4 conversion! So far, so good - although we seem to be having a few glitches with the sliding door :confused:. Rock & Roll bed, units etc. have all been ordered and should be arriving next week. Got to do the headliner, lighting/electrics too.

I have a passenger sliding electric rear door that is stuck just open but still held by the door lock pin.
The electric sliding system stopped working
Central locking lifts the door lock indicator ok
When the door handle is operated there seems to be...
