    Hi everyone. In desperate need of a part for Heinz which I'd very much appreciate any help you can offer in locating. My mechanic says it's the "bracket that the clutch pedal fixes to. It has snapped." It's been off the road for 8 months now (mostly due to 6 months of mechanics failiing to get...

    I bought my first t25 in June this year as I really wanted a usable classic(ish) van to use whilst I carry out the restoration on my 67' bug. The van when I bought it had a very naff day van setup which I have since completely removed and I'm now starting from scratch to build my own interior...

    Can someone give some advice? I'm looking to buy a 1.9, 82 plate, T25 Westfalia but don't know the most important questions I need to ask the seller. Obvious, generic vehicle stuff like service history I know but what should I be really asking? Appreciate any pointers.

    Hello My 1982 T25, 4 speed, aircooled van has broken down in Avignon, South of France. The garage (who have not been very helpful to date) have informed us it needs a new gear box, as originally they thought it was the gear linkage. Are there many different models/types for a van of this age or...

    hi... 1st post here. Been the first time owner of a VW for less than a week having just bought a 1991 T25 2.1i automatic with an Autohomes (Kameo) camper conversion. Too late for pre-purchase advice ;) but after starting perfectly at viewing, test drive, collection, next couple of days etc it...

    First of all, I would like apologise if you feel this is the wrong section for this question. I'm fairly new to the forum. The T25 was produced in both air and water cooled so I figured this would be okay. I believe the answer is relevant for both air and water cooled t25s. Does anyone know the...

    Hi All, Introducing my 1.9DG '89 T25 Single Cab.. He has 71k on the clock, I've no history to back that up but, it definitely has never been used as a work truck, nor does it look a mile worse than the 71k! Amazing bed, original wood etc.. He was a bargain too! It's my daily.. I get around...

    Hi Everyone, I have a feeling I will be frequenting this forum a fair bit from now on ;-) I have owned an '84 T25 (1.9 water cooled) for 6 months now and had great fun over the Summer... now for payback... MOT time!! So I got the bus back along with the 2 pages of failures, in summary though...

    Good evening, This may sound a little out there and random but I hope you understand where I'm coming from, maybe some of you have also been in out position! I am just wondering if there are any other members that live within the Wiltshire/Hampshire area that would be kind enough to give us a...

    Evening everybody, I'm after a little advice if you don't mind. I bought a D Reg T25 1.9 petrol watercooled Autosleeper just over two weeks ago. The main battery has gone flat for the second time. The current battery is a HB065 which I believe is from Halfords and is not big enough for the...

    Hi all, my first tech post and without wanting to sound sexist, I am a girl, so please help me out by talking me through things simply... Got a T25 autosleeper a few weeks ago, everything great except that none of the 12V systems are currently working. i have it plugged into the mains, but...

    Hi all, thanks for your time. At the weekend, I noticed a puddle of oil under my van which I assumed was mine (although if so, it has not leaked since). However, on looking at the engine, there is oil around the top of the engine and I was hoping someone might be able to point me towards a...

    I found this pic whilst looking through my in my late grandad's photos. Dated 1984 at Melton Mowbray Airfield. He was in the caravan club, so maybe this is connected to that? Interesting all the same.

    So my dilemma is not overheating, a common enough fault with any vehicle, but underheating. As my daily I run a panel van with a slightly modified 2.1 DJ engine which has an early cooling system which as stated seems to work too well. Instead of the fuel injection system I run twin Dellortos and...

    Hi, Currently got a couple of problems with the transmission in our 5 speed T25 (1990). We lost reverse for a couple of weeks, and the rest of the gears felt even more like stirring porridge than normal. We took it down to a mates and got it on a ramp to have a look. Seems like clutch and...

    electrical feeling through peadls and steering wheel Bought my first t25 1990. Lovely machine. Has a caddy 1.9 diesel in it. I have noticed after I drive it for a few minutes there's an electrical feeling on the steering wheel, gear stick and pedals. The heater blower had siezed and was...
