VW T4 clutch pedal broken as usual ? .... Fix it for £10

I designed this product to solve the problem on my own T4 (which I still own) and then I made it available to other fellow T4 owners, for a fair and reasonable price.

There are now copies available.

This has meant that i've now had to further revise my price, making it very difficult to continue selling these brackets, but my loss is your gain, so they are now £9.95 (£12 delivered)

I can't make the decision for you but i would please ask...

Don't buy a copy... buy an original.


--------------------------------------------------

Pictures say a thousand words.... so take a look at my side by side video comparision, Broken and Fixed.

Heres the link; http://www.youtubedoubler.com/?video1=http://www.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzZ50X5xJS4&start1=&video2=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiVj_ZmzZPA&start2=&authorName=boatyardbuses


Or read on for the 'thousand' words;

The Volkswagen T4 Transporter / Caravelle / Multivan has a very common problem.

The clutch pedal mounting bracket cracks, which causes the clutch master cylinder to become loose and move as you can see in my 'VW T4 clutch pedal broken as usual' video here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzZ50X5xJS4

No big deal to start with.... but before long it will break completely, then your stuck without a clutch. It can also damage your master cylinder beyond repair, and crack the pipe leaving you with your footwell (and your shoes) covered in nasty corrosive brake/clutch fluid.

Up until now you have had a few choices, but all are expensive (some more than others) and time consuming repairs, requiring at least a few hours work.

Now though, you can spend just 10 minutes of your time fitting one of my clutch pedal repair brackets.

See the difference in my 'VW T4 clutch pedal fixed for £10' video here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiVj_ZmzZPA

They come powder coated ready to fit with all the nuts, bolts and washers you will need and best of all they cost just £9.95 (excluding P&P)

So don't delay, the longer you leave it the more parts break so the more money you have to spend on repairs.

Paypal me £12 (inc UK P&P) to [email protected] and within a couple of days you can have the most common VW T4 problem fixed for good.

Cheers,
Neil


PS.

I've been asked quite a few times now so just to make it clear

This bracket is a cure and a preventative measure

If your pedal bracket is already cracked then this will fix it

If it hasn't already cracked then this will prevent it happening

You don't need a new pedal box as that will also break

So you still need this bracket even for a new pedal box


------------------------------------------------

PRICE UPDATE 21/11/11 - Why £10 now £12?

Thank you all for your orders so far, you guys can buy yourself a pint on me (with the £2 I saved you) ;)

Heres why;

After receiving payments and taking the first lot to the post office I’ve soon realised that I had under estimated the total costs involved. I had not gained accurate prices for the full fitting kit, powder coating, postage and paypal fees and not expecting these costs to be much, I went for it at £12 (including full fitting kit, powder coating, postage and paypal fees) in an attempt to make this fix as cheap as possible for us T4 owners.

Well, I’ve fell flat on my face with that, and I’m sorry to say that it’s just not possible. If I had fully worked it out in the first place they would certainly be more than the £2 extra I’m now going to ask for, but due to me putting myself in this position I have to cut it to the bone and now ask for £14 all in.

I would also really appreciate it if you could paypal me as a gift payment, as this will really help me out. I understand if you would rather make a goods payment and so this is fine, either way.

Cheers,
Neil

PS. To make this fair while I update adverts etc, I'll say that any orders received as a gift payment through paypal before 4pm today (21/11/11) will be £12 total - after 4pm the total will be £14.

--------------------------------------------------


PRICE UPDATE (AGAIN) 23/09/12 - Why £12 now £10?
The above price of £12 has now gone back to £10 (well £9.95) due to someone with no morals illegally copying my part.

--------------------------------------------------

Fitting Guide

• Under your bonnet, locate your brake servo unit (the big round unit below the brake master cylinder and brake fluid reservoir)

• Remove the M8 bolt (13mm head) from the lower right side of your brake servo (approx. 4-5 ‘o’ clock position as you looking at it) and replace it with the longest of the three M8 bolts supplied along with the largest M8 washer. Tighten this bolt now.

• In the drivers footwell, locate your clutch master cylinder (in between the clutch and brake pedal) and remove the two M8 mounting bolts (13mm heads)

• Place your new clutch pedal bracket into position (ensure it goes over the protruding bulkhead bolt you first fitted) and loosely fit the bracket to the clutch master cylinder, using the two remaining M8 bolts and small M8 washers supplied with your new bracket.

• Now fit the other small M8 washer and the M8 nyloc nut to the bulkhead bolt and tighten.

• Now tighten the two clutch master cylinder bolts.

Are there any symptoms of this wobble as I dont tend to stare at my feet when driving?

I didnt even know there was an issue with this bracket.

might have to buy myself one of these bad boys just to be sure.

Im guessing there is a bit of drilling to be done then?

Check out the video in the you tube doubler link - it should make it clear what is happening - basically theres movement that shouldn't be happening.

Press your clutch with your hand and watch it move... if it doesn't move, you are lucky for now but it probably will do soon so best fit this now to avoid the problem altogether.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DRILLING NEEDED - A SIMPLE BOLT ON PART!

Sorry to shout that out, just wanted to make it loud and clear. 3 bolts, 1 nut and your done (all supplied)

Hope that helps, cheers.

I have just stumbled on this thread - its a while since I had a T4, but had this exact problem and cost me a lot more than this to fix. This strikes me as a superb preventative measure for a common T4 problem (unless you speak to VW :confused:).
Well worth the £12 as mine made my van undriveable within 2 miles.
