    Hi there, I need to replace my hinge pins. I've managed to get my pins out and they are corroded in the mid section. How do you figure out if you need oversized 1 or 2? It is just the middle section of the hinge I have to measure because the top and bottom sections of the hinges are reading...

    So i'd like to change all the locks on our van to work off one key - currently need 4 keys and it drives me nuts. We currently have Chrome handles etc all round the van and the only full lock set I could find was this one with JK but they're all black plastic handles :(...

    They seem to screw into some sort of threaded insert, through a hole in the outer skin of the door. What would be the best way to mount a passenger side mirror as I currently don't have one? Will the threaded insert be in there if I drill a hole in the outer skin? Or will I just have to find a...

    Hi Just got a 02 plate A6 1.9TDI and it's great except a couple of niggles. The NSF door if you just give it a shove it seems to bounce and not close properly but if you push it fully closed it closes just fine. Is there any adjustment or does it need a new catch? Also the boot lid latch grinds...

    I've got a VW bay window 1979 campervan and the passenger lock has broken. The same key operates both the passenger and driver doors. Where can I get a replacement lock? Also, I'd like to get a matching lock without having to get a new key. Is this possible? Thanks Sandra:)

    I wanted to get some feedback on what the more learned people think about doors with swage lines. Whilst you can buy pretty much every other panel new if you want to buy new doors then ones with swage lines are your only option to my knowledge?! So being part way into a full resto I am find...
