Can anyone recommend a decent quality replacement nearside bottom door roller please and advice on how to swap it out without causing any damage to myself or my van please .

Very much appreciated, B&T .

Also need a new step cover (to fit over a 12mm ply floor) cuz ours is pretty scratched up now . Thanks again.

VdubPhotoLife has a video on YouTube . They are OEM quality parts out there will post back when I can find company again. As for our last vans scruffy step I sanded all the deep scratches out then heated it up with a heat gun ( carefully 馃榿) and the sprayed it with a non slip mat finish dash cleaner and it worked a treat. It can make the plastic more brittle but if you're going to replace it anyway it's always fun trying to repair or restore ( but I'm a cheap bugger)

I bought the Transporter HQ aftermarket one, it looks the job but was a bit tricky to fit, which could just be my van (insulated floor then ply).

Excuse the dirt, but this is the THQ one in situ over insulation, ply and flooring:

Looks oem but it's not, it's missing the light (on purpose, I don't have one and didn't want a blanking plate) and it's higher to accomodate the floor!

Have you looked for a new roller? They are all over the internet, Just Kampers, Heritage, ebay, VW dealers may stock them?

And a deeper side step are on all the aftermarket websites; Transporter HQ, Travelinlite, VeeDub, Vanstyle, Van-X.... various genuine and copy parts. Vanstyle one is 拢35 but not sure on quality

Cheers
