  1. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, so changed the camshaft today on my T5 2.5 tdc BNZ engine. Now it won’t start, showing code PO726 which relates to engine speed sensor, also got STOP on the display while cranking and oil light showing.

    Hi guys! I'm new here. We've had a T5 Caravelle for the past year and he just flew through the MOT so my partner has vetoed me modding the s*** out of it, yay! My biggest visual concern is that the plastic trim in the rear is gross. The material gets pulled out constantly by my kids and reveals...

    My van got flooded right up to the seats. Since then the airbag light has been on. I ran the code reader but it showed no faults, so I can't clear it. A friend of mine told me that this exact thing happened to his car (different make) and he had to pull the floor up under the passenger seat and...

  6. Security
    Hi all. I’m new here and am hoping that someone here knows how to fix this problem. I’ve searched all over the internet for a solution to this but can’t find one. The central locking works on all other doors but the two sliding doors do not unlock. You can see the buttons on the inside twitch...

    Hi all, I have a one year old and am looking at getting the front bunk from stitches and steel as this looks realistically like the best option. But for anyone who has it I have a few questions. 1) Do you use anything else as a mattress for the little one - either in the bunk or underneath...

    Can anyone help please. I started out on a 2014 T5 conversion but my partner has had a recent cancer diagnosis which has put a stop to that. I desperately want to get it finished so that assuming she has periods of wellness we can at least get away for short times. Pop top roof and windows are...
  9. T5 Conversions
    Hello I have an amazing but very annoying VW T5 LWB with a sunroof which makes converting / cladding the interior very difficult. In the process, I am removing the standard T5 interior reading lights from the ceiling at the middle and back as they don't fit in. 3 questions: 1) Can you...

    Hi all, 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. My...

    So me and my family are now the proud owners of a 2015 LWB T5.1 Startline. Name is yet to be confirmed but we are toying with Kermit the Camper (you will see why later) Plans are to convert it ourselves into a little family adventure bus. Fairly default plans, inside will be 3/4s rock and roll...

    Hi all, Newbie here. I've just bought my first van to convert and struggling with fitting some seats. I've bought a swivel base for each side, and been lucky enough to grab some caddy seats for free. They are much wider than the t5 bases. I'm trying to work out if the handbreak will have...

    Hello, I have a 2010 T5(?) transporter that has done 90,000 miles. I am absolutely gutted as I have to sell it because I live in London (ULEZ) and the van is not Euro 6 compliant. A couple of years ago someone tried to break into the side door and mullered the lock making two or three horrible...

    Hi All, I have a T5 that has a mystery problem that is currently costing me a fortune as its been through a few workshops to try and diagnose the problem so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help. The van will start fine whenever the engine is cold, but when the engine is warm it can't...

    Hi all. In need of some advice/guidance about the awning for my VW T5 high top camper. I bought a Vango Cairns low awning but can't for the life of me figure out how to attach it. The instructions are so vague and no YouTube videos specifically for this type. At the moment there is only a black...
