Hello

Have just bought an 05 9 seat transporter and love it, unfortunately it hates me and has already forced me to replace it’s turbo and alternator. It had already travelled to the moon and back but seemed to be worth a punt.
I am using it for work and was after a heads up on anything else that tends to go bang on the high mileage t5’s as prevention is always better than cure.

Thanks

No experience with T5's but welcome to the forum, and hope you have ironed out any 'creases' T: :ILU:

Whats your engine and whats your mileage. Mines a 1.9 and got 316.000 with no issues. Its a 04 plate lwb t30.
05 2.5 lwb diesel with 317 on the clock, ran beautifully when I picked it up and is in my opinion the best drive out of all the 7+ seat cars I have driven. Just a bit of a knock when things do go wrong as labour seems to cost as much as the parts being fitted.

In not particular order ones that spring to mind:

Cam shaft
OS stub shaft
Water pump
Gear box
Steering rack
Exhaust manifold

:eek:
Thanks for the tips just noticed a slight drop in revs when its cold and idling but smooth running once its warm
