  1. Recommend Self-Priming Fresh Water Pump?

    T5 Conversions
    Hi, I currently have a fresh water system setup with 52L tanks under the van and a 12V water pump. The water pump isn't self priming so needs manually priming which can be a bit of a pain :( So I'm looking at fitting a self-priming pump - does anyone have any recommendations? I had a quick...
  2. water leak in tailgate

    T6 General Chat
    Advice please? I've just bought a nearly-new T6 Kombi from a VW dealer. After it rains, when I open the tailgate I can hear water sloshing in the cavity, and (if parked on a slope) water dribbles out of the interior holes! Here's a video: https://vimeo.com/313958598/e7241c05b4 The seals...
  3. Triggered tap/shower attachment

    T5 Conversions
    Hi, I'm looking for a shower type tap attachment which I can use on the van with an external water pump. I would expect the tap to have a micro switch that would trigger the pump when pressed. Maybe that's not the case though and the back pressure from the trigger attachment would hold the pump...
  4. CAK Tanks - any good?

    T5 Conversions
    I know there's previous posts on this forum about underslung CAK tanks with many saying they were pretty good. But now we're a few years down the line I wondered if those opinions still stood an they lasted the test of time. I have a slim conversion and struggling for water tank storage space so...
  5. T5 AXD water pipe removal

    Engine & Gearbox
    Does the metal water pipe into the block just pull out (when the the two screws are removed)? The screwdriver is pointing to the stubborn pipe. It'll wiggle, and I can twist it, but it wont pull.
  6. Aircon drain?

    General T5 Chat
    I had the puddle under the van this afternoon that requires the mandatory dipping and sniffing of fingers to establish that its not something more serious that water. My suspicion (backed up by you lovely folk on here) was that the aircon was draining off. I traced the water drips back to the...
  7. Fresh Water Tank

    General T5 Chat
    I have a LWB T5 converted by Camper King. I've noticed when I fill the fresh water tank using a hose, that quite a lot of water continues to run out under the van after I've filled it. I assume this is the overflow, but it also comes out when I brake. I spoke to Camper King and they assured me...

  9. Waste water tank

    General Technical
    The waste tank will not drain. Opening the valve in the gas bottle cupboard has no effect. Probing the outlet pipe underneath with a knitting needle (gently) has no effect. Help! We are touring Wiltshire prior to returning home to France and have no idea how much more the tank will take. (27...

  15. Leaking passenger window?

    General T5 Chat
    I opened the passenger door today to find a small pool of water in the footwell (pic taken after I'd cleaned it up but it was trapped inside)! On further investigation it seems that rainwater is leaking out the screw hole at the bottom of the doorcard and leaving a pool inside the van mostly on...

  17. Tailgate water leak

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi folks, I have a leak in the the back that's driving me mad. The leak is on the left hand side of the tailgate and comes through the carpet and rips onto the rear unit. There are no holes in the chassis or roof and I'm pretty sure it's the rubber seal not functioning properly, the water...
  18. Is there a drain in the ECU compartment?

    Hola, I have had miscellaneous problems with electrics for a little while, and after metering the accelerator pedal connector (voltage too low) I went to have a look at the ECU end in the big black box under the battery. It turns out there was a bit of water in there. Actually 5 inches of water...
  19. Water ingress, driver footwell

    Hey folks. Long time no see. I've got some water pooling below the pedals on my T4. Figure it might be coming through the vents/heater, but not really sure where to start. Any ideas/schematics round here? No smell of antifreeze incidentally, so I don't think it's coming from the matrix...
