Can anyone recommend a mechanic that services theTwickenham area that would come and have a look at my van? Its needs a little work finishing on it that I can’t do myself. Looking for someone who is reliable and knows about the T4 2.5TDI engines. I have been waiting far to long now and just want to get the beast started and enjoy it.

Thanks in Advance..T:

How do. I'm in Isleworth and use Martin at Finch Motors in Brentford. Pretty solid guy - only used him for servicing but might be worth a ring. 07784 073 013

thanks for the reply. I managed to find a mobile mechanic who specializes in diesels. He starts work Monday. Which means after a very frustrating 6 months of having my van sat outside my house without a front grill or a complete engine that it will soon be back on the road with a completely rebuilt and refurbished engine.

I cant wait, as ive had avery frustrating and drawn out experience so far. Then off to the body shop for a little bit of a work and a polish. i have a custom 2,5" exhaust tooA: some camo seat covers to go on, new aero wipers fitted sounds are waiting for the cobwebs to be blown out. Then gonna have a look behined the panels to see what sort of insulation is fitted if any T: Happy days should ready for spring and a bucket load of trips mountain biking and racing around the country.

Glad you found someone. If you see a red '03 lowered camper in the Twickenham area (Forum sticker on back), give us a toot!

Enjoy your summer!

Hi Bman and Karnstop, nice to know there's a VW friendly mechanic locally. I'm down in Hanworth so not far from you two. Will either of you be able to make it along to the Ace cafe on the North Circular on Dec 20th for the final London meet up? Hope to see you there if you can?

:*Zero feedback for Martin @ Finch Motors, after ringing him the next day he then asked me to txt my Reg No :( that i already gave him then he txt me back for ME to ring him back :( so i rang him and he said that you need a special pulley to get hub of and advised me to ring VW because he couldn't do the job :bhd:bhd :*:*
as it happens i did ring Vw and they quoted me supply and nix new hub and bearing £219.00 i might even go for that when i get back to suffolk have a good weekend T:
