Hey, hoping someone can help me. The boot latch on my T4 is sticking intermittently and I haven't a clue how to fix it! Also, the barrel lock has fallen out of the drivers door - do I need to buy a complete new handle? Thanks :)

The boot (hatch?) lock mechanism can be problematic, had issues with the one on my '95 t4 and eventually bought a new genuine vw one from TPS (£60:* ) & that's cheaper than the Scene-Tax-Added used parts prices seen on eGay & with the specialist t4 & camp-er 'steelers' I phoned I: aparantly the mechanism is rare secondhand :* still available new though LOL:

As to the drivers door lock, you can buy complete handles with lock-barrel & 2 keys for less than £20 (eGay again) or just a lock & key pair to fit your existing handle.
Easy to swap the handle/ lock OR to swap a new lock-barrel into an older handle (2 x 'crosshead' screws secure handle to door then remove A: )
