  1. Wheels & Tyres
    Just picked up a new T5 Kombi Highline T30 180 which we are due to have converted to a camper by New Wave at the end of the month. I've spoken to a few people regarding wheel size and a few have warned against going above 18" for a camper. What are your thoughts on 19 or 20" wheels? Any...

    I've got a t4 caravelle 2001. The horn has been going off when I don't want it to. I took the wheel off and there's a washer on top of the spring. It's very misshapen. What should it look like? The spring is also loose - in that you can remove it easily and put it back, but looking at other...
  4. Wheels & Tyres
    Hello. Typical. I'm away from home in my caravelle t4 2001 lwb and just as I was pulling into a car park I heard a bump at the back. I got in, parked, but when I got out I could hear the heart-sinking hiss of the air escaping from my rear offside. I had a feel around and found a nail sticking...

  9. General T4 Chat
    So today I picked up my T4 from a reputable independant garage in Bristol. The N/S/F ball joint and bushes needed replacing and I asked them to fit a pair of sidebars as well. After paying and driving to Zmoks to get some electrics looked at (about 5 miles)we noticed that the side bar didn't...
  10. General Van Chat
    Any advice please. I have just ordered a T5.1 SWB with a four berth conversion. Yet to pick it up though. It comes with steel wheels and covers. Ideally I would like some alloys but don't know where to start. I have seen these 19" Range Rover alloys for sale which are local to me (so can...

  16. General T5 Chat
    I'm getting a drone from my driver side front wheel (t30 1.9 kombi 05) so after ruling out the tyres, i'm hoping it's the front hub bearing on it's way out. I've a general idea how to change it, just making sure if I need any special tools to do the change over? I managed to buy a new hub...
  17. Steering & Suspension
    Hello there, I have been trying to work out for some time what the knocking noise coming from the front off side wheel is for some time now. It seems to knock when I am turning and the suspension compresses (when I hit a bump in the road etc...) I am also noticing that the same tire has uneven...
