  1. T5 Conversions
    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...

    Ok.. so I took a risk and bought a cheap floating touchscreen type stereo for my 2015 t5.1 after reading some fairly good reviews. I wasn’t expecting much for under £100 as long as the radio, nav and Bluetooth worked. Eventually got the thing working after buying a kenwood harness and quad lock...

    Hey Fellow Transporter Owners! We have just purchased our first T5.1 Above and below the Sliding Door lock there is a sprung catch. The Lower one on Elvis is broken. It looks as if they align the door as it engages with the lock. Please see Image. I have looked around parts websites to no...

    Evening all, This could be a silly one, but does anyone know what these holes here are for on a lwb ? just making sure they aren’t any sort of slam vent. Also does anyone know if you can buy covers for these or what they would be called? many thanks, Jason

    I have entered into the T5 world with a 15 plate LWB shuttle. It has the climatronic controls at the front which work great: and a button to control the rear from the front which works on the display but..... However there doesn’t seem to be anything going on in the back if you change the...
  10. General Van Chat
    Hey there all, has anyone got or tried one of these stand offs? I would be interested to hear your experience. I'm hoping that we can get out next year in the T5 I converted into a camper. It seems this might be a good way to get some fresh air into the van overnight while sleeping. It would...

    Hey, I'm keen to get a T5.1 (or early T6) panel van to convert to a stealth camper. One of my main must-haves is a parking heater for cold winter days here in Sweden. In the ads I've seen listings with parking heater (some with timer and/or remote) and with heated cargo area. However I'm...

    After 5 years of ownership and lots of trawling through this forum, I finally got around (and permission!!) to convert my van. I must admit that lockdown has helped, as it allowed me the time (and no excuses) to crack on with it. So I wanted to say thanks and show what/how I've done it. Maybe...
  13. Brakes
    I’ve got an issue with the calliper or pads rattling on my near side rear brake. I’m not sure if there’s too much float in the calliper or if the springs retaining the pad are not doing their job properly. video here for reference Any one had any experience with this problem? Thanks a lot.

    Hello T4 forum. I'm about to embark on the fitting of a ctek d250se battery to battery charger on my T5.1. The vehicle is an ex sky van (2012) with stop start. I have a wire on my ctek which will need to be connected to the ignition fuse but I'm unsure on the correct fuse to piggyback it to...

    Hi all, I know this has been covered a lot in various forums but I cannot find my specific answer. now before I go buying aftermarket relay\module kit I have questions. My BCM (Body Control Module) is 7H0937087F so with Cruise and powerfold mirrors. Now in the instructions I have researched it...
  16. Steering & Suspension
    I'm no mechanic but am I right in thinking this isn't supposed to be like this? Does anyone know anywhere you can buy a single replacement H&R 29270-1 rear spring without buying a full set? Also, should this have happened in the first place - is it just a function of ageing or was it likely...

    I've look all over for the fuse S41 which supplies the heated rear window in my 2010 t5.1. The wiring diagram says its in relay carrier (1) cockpit, but I can't find out where that is? Does anyone know? Thanks for any help.
  18. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, new to the forum so apologies in advance for anything I may have missed. Noticed recently that there’s a slight clunk felt through the floor when selecting 1st gear at a stand still (but before lifting the clutch). If I then knock it out of gear then back in again there’s no clunk - seems to...

    Hi all. It's about time I sorted a build thread - I've had my white 64 plate SWB T5.1 for just about a year now and the interior has gone through quite a transformation (shame about the exterior!). The first 5 months of owning the van was where most of the work happened, so it's gonna take a...

    Hi all, James here. I bought a SWB VW T5.1 (T32) last year as a standard panel van and have been doing work to convert to a camper... not made much progress the past few months but hoping to get some more work done when the weather breaks (if we ever see the sun again!). I'll do a proper build...
