  4. Vibration When Turning On Lights

    When my T4 is idling and I turn on the lights there is a vibration sound which seems to be coming from deep within the engine. I'm thinking the alternator is on its way out or something is loose in it causing it to rumble/vibrate when a load comes on it. Anyone else have similar issues?

    Hello :) I am hoping someone can help with this... About a year ago I bought a set of alloy wheels from a guy on ebay and got them fitted to the van along with a new set of tyres and the spigot rings / adaptor bolts (they are range rover wheels). Since fitting them the van developed a wobble...

    General Technical
    Hello, I've had my 1.9td since 2009, overall its been great. Ever since I've owned it though ,when accelerating away and going through 2000 revs, an annoying tinny rattle/vibration noise occurs.

  9. Judder/vibration when braking

    Steering & Suspension
    Hi I've got a 03 T4 with 162000 on the clock. Basically it feels like there's a warped disc at the front when braking but I've had disks and pads changed all round and its made no difference. It went into smashing VW in Leeds last week for a couple of bits, they did have a quick look into...

  11. Noisy air filter box.

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi. Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? At tickover and low engine speeds the air box housing on my van ('96 1.9 TD) is very noisy……its a deep, hollow thrumming vibration sound and it quite annoying. If I pop the bonnet with the engine idling and push down on the filter box, the...
  12. Vibration when not accelerating

    General T5 Chat
    Have just bought a 1.9 85 which has alloys fitted. When accelerating there is no issue - it runs smoothly. When you take your foot off the accelerator it there's a knocking noise from the front. Seems to happen more when at speed (4th or 5th gear). Have been searching the forums and suspect it...
