    Recently got a 2.5 TDI T5 which came on 20" alloys, due to the bigger circumference the speedo is reading around 4/5mph slower than the van is actually travelling. I was wondering if anyone could offer some insight as to weather there's somehow a way to recalibrate the speedo and would it be...

  18. T4 changing pinion for speedometer drive

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi I've think I've finally confirmed that the reason my speedo is not working on my 92 T4 (petrol) is that the pinion/skew gear for the speedometer drive has failed. I've got a new one, but having spent all afternoon lying on my back using feel to try and figure out how to get to it, I've...
