We need more info on the van. Most problem areas have been covered on numerous threads which can be found on here but info on miles, history etc would be helpful. :tu

Look for rust....

Then look again...

;)

Service history & receipts, also with the 2.5tdis - has the clutch, slave cylinder & dual-mass flywheel been changed (££££'s!!!)


If it's recently had paint then question what is hidden behind :*

Also worth checking previous mot history & failure / advisories, also good for checking millage I:

https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/?_ga=2.263960076.1619609904.1503338120-1891573431.1493579198

Don't buy the first van you see & don't be pressurised to buy because someone else wants it I:

Don't be afraid of buying a blank-canvas van & converting yourself, genuine Vw middle windows with the rubber trim & bonding kit are less than £80 a side & easily fitted by most diyers http://www.t4srus.co.uk/genuine-vw-t4-side-sliding-door-middle-window-kit-years-90---03-753-p.asp

Good luck with your search T:
