Have a 2006 TDI transporter 390k in the clock, and the fuel injectors have just gone. The turbo has recently been replaced, with other things (over 11k). What am I looking at for the fuel injectors? Somewhere of a cost?

Hi there,
Have you checked the ignition switch witch is just behind the key lock on you steering wheel
It is a~ $10 part and sometimes can fail very slowly try by pushing in your key hard when trying to start.
Not a big issues if it is that

are there anchor points for a childs car seat?

Steve
Steve

No designated anchor point that I'm aware of.
I have a bench seat in the rear of my car so I used the seatbelt anchor points and bolted the child restraint bracket to The seatbelt anchor point .
I hope that makes sense .

My recommendations:

1. Phone your local VW for both part and labour costs as separate items. This is your ceiling cost.
2. Then google for a new clutch online.
3. Get a few different mechanics to quote on labour costs.

Your current mechanic is having a go at you.

If you are like a lot of transporter owners and have never had your auto trans serviced, then you are probably due for an expensive lesson. Volkswagen are telling a lot of owners that the transmission is sealed for life. You'll need to get it checked out. What area are you from?

I replaced a drivers side door for a vw transporter 1.9 tdi 2006 with a 2010 door. but when I go to connect the wiring loom to the door it doesn't fit the computer slots, also some of the wire colours are different . Any solution?

Wondering if you are able to use the old wiring harness and wires rather than trying to adapt the new doors wiring but I wouldn't have thought that they would've been so different- not sure what to suggest- m

Good day! My 2006 Transporter 2.5, 128 Kw give me trouble. Sometimes he got first gear sometimes not. Now R is also given me problems. Could it be the Syncro/gearbox problems?

Your gear linkage bushes near the gearbox are probably worn. Common fault on T4s. I've changed mine twice. The parts are cheaper overseas on eBay. Pain in the behind to change. Best fixed before it fails!!!!

Syncro is All Wheel Drive. Is your vehicle this?
