Re: Spot Weld question

As others have said, check out the mig-welding forum. There’s feedback on there from the forum members about pretty much every model of welder, and it’s well worth looking through before clicking the Buy It Now button. Again, as above, low amp settings are key for thin sheet bodywork, but you’ll als...

Re: diesel flywheels

Don't forget the forum at VWDiesel.net - there's a ton of info and expertise on there for diesel owners to tap into, including the JX engine.

Re: Rear facing removable seat

The best thing would be to see if you can get hold of a good condition used OEM rear-facing folding seat:

Re: 215/75 15 spare on bullbar?

There's been quite a bit of debate on here in the past about mounting bull bars, and other stuff like spare wheels on the front of your van, such as this thread. My understanding of the regulations , which is admittedly limited, is that they don't specifically prohibit fitting stuff to the front of ...

Re: Caravan Wheels for VW T25

I am curious to where the oft quoted 900kg comes from? Mefro rims are quoted as such because they are designed as trailer wheels and most trailer stuff is rated so. Does it come from there? I suspect it most likely does derive from the load ratings of some of the alternative wheels that were found ...

Re: Caravan Wheels for VW T25

I wouldn't have thought caravan wheels would be load rated for a commercial vehicle. ^^^ This. You need to ensure that the wheels as well as the tyres have sufficient load rating - 900kg each should I believe be the minimum, but you may want to consider the wheels having a margin of safety above th...

If I recall correctly the recommended corner load rating for a T25 wheel is at least 900kg, i.e. more than half the weight of the heaviest Mini, so I think it's unlikely that those wheels are going to be rated for that.

Re: Broken Roof on T25 High Top Club Joker

Just seen your photos - I don't think that's going to be easily repaired because of the extent of the damage, and that you should probably start sending out enquiries to find a replacement. If I were you I would set aside some extra budget for work to tackle the corrosion you will inevitably find ab...

Broken Roof on T25 High Top Club Joker

I just broke the roof of my hightop club joker 1990. The front bit has been ripped up and I think its probably beyond repair. Does anyone know of a company that supplies replacement hightop or can repair? You might be able to get it repaired, but it sounds like yours is probably too damaged for tha...

Re: The good old engine debate....

Then I would check where you are, the ULEZ emission zone is expanding massively, and will be taken up in other cities, do you plan to visit places like that? Some people have said that after changing their engines they have not met the requirements. So far... my petrol conversions are ok in the LEZ...

Re: Importing a Turbo WBX to the EU

If it's being brought over on a temporary 'tourist' basis, generally six months or less, then it shouldn't be an issue, but if you're planning on staying longer and need to register it in the EU, then it will depend where you do that. In France, for example, my understanding is that they will only g...

Re: What's this in the floor of my van?

Assuming that this is the side nearest the sliding door, then that will probably be related to an optional heater install. The heater would typically be mounted in a protective box outside under the van, with both the air feeds and cables passing through the area under that blanking panel. The cold ...

Re: Timing Belt Alignment problems.

We once had a wearing issue with the timing belt on ours, which arose because the tensioner had been rotated the wrong direction when it had been fitted - it still tensions the belt but apparently can cause running problems. The injection system manual says to rotate the tensioner to the right, i.e....
