Anti roll bar position

Morning folks! I am replacing the anti roll bar and drop link bushes on my van but a seed of doubt has crept in as to which way round the anti roll bar should go back in. I should have labelled it I know! Could anyone with the same van/anti roll bar confirm if it goes this way: https://www.brickwerk...

Re: Anti Roll Bar and Drop Link Bush Replacement Video

Hi folks :D Can I first of all thank you James for taking the time to produce this excellent video! I was wondering if anyone knows the correct torque setting for the nut on the bottom of the drop link? I have the kinked/cranked ones if that makes any difference. Many thanks as always everyone! :)

I fitted the Vw Speedshop stainless system two years ago and am very pleased with it.

Torque Wrench Recomendations

Afternoon all! As the subject title says, can anyone recommend a decent torque wrench that would cover everything on our vans?

Re: stripping painting and refitting a underslung gas tank

Hi Lloydy, Apologies, I know this is an old thread of yours. I've got a few things to take to get sand blasted and thought I might chuck in the metal tinware surround on the gas tank however my tank is nowhere near empty and I just wanted to ask you if those three M10 bolts can be removed without an...

Re: Dash Out

Thanks for that Midlifecrisis. Am I right in saying that about a dozen clips are required to hold it together?

Re: Budget for bodywork?

I, along with many other people have asked this same question here many times. It's really hard to get a straight answer as there are so many variables. As an extremely vague, ball park figure I would expect to be paying about 2k for a quality external tidy up and re-spray, and more like 5 if there ...

Washer pipe - good thinking. Any idea where you can get them? Is it just a length of standard tubing?

Dash Out

Evening all! I am building up towards taking the dash out of my van. I use it almost everyday so I'm keen to keep it off the road for as short a time as possible so I'm trying to preempt all possible outcomes and have all the right bits before starting the job. I'm going to replace the wiper motor, ...

Re: temperature problems

Hi John Could be a few things at fault here but as a general rule of thumb when you are getting strange, spurious electrical faults it is often down to some sort of earthing problem. Some things you could check are: 1. Inspect and clean the earthing crowns (located on the inside of the A-pillar, in ...
