Transporter T4 (1994-2003)

Hi there I have a 97 T4 transporter and I'm wondering if anyone knows if there's an anchor point to put a forward facing child's car seat in the front passengers side? The back seat's been taken out for a bed so obviously that's not an option.
Thanks-Jo

There are no car seat anchor points in the front row. You would need to have one fitted by a child seat anchor point fitting place.

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

Hi Rob, for me 15000km is the interval, I do everything myself and have nearly done 500000km. It is all straight forward simple engineering made for the professional. Change the oil every 15000km (I do check also every time I fuel up routine as VW uses oil) check breaks and electrical system and you will have great and inexpensive motoring

I believe sinar63 is right the book says 15,000 but this is with fully synthetic oil. If you are using standard oil like GTX or shell helix 15w40 I would recommend changing more frequently minimum of 10,000 kilometres 7,500 would be better. I did over 200,000 kilometres in my 03 T4 kombi without any issues whatsoever. I used valvoline XLD 15w40 at 10,000klm intervals.
You can get filters on eBay Sakura brand for $22.00 ish. Pretty good filters. (I wouldn't buy anything cheaper they probably have nothing inside). Beats the $40 plus at auto parts store. Make sure it's the right one they have a big nut on the bottom you usually need to tighten with a socket 27mm so they don't leak there is a cheaper alternative that doesn't have the nut but they can't be tightened easily and usually leak from the gasket.

Stick with the manual T4 automatic transmissions are well known to have issues. Good automatic transmissions are very rare and you can pay around $3500 for a good one. That doesn't include all the other stuff you will need or fitting. There are a lot of forums on changing T4s to manual transmissions for that reason.

Transporter T4 (1994-2003)

I have just recently purchased a 96 VW Transporter auto camper on the clock) it had air con probs (fixed by a fuse) new car battery, it’s now in at the auto electricians as the red engine light came on I could smell the heat coming off the engine, pulled over immediately. Loads of water in the container, RACQ said possible fan probs... had van towed to my auto electrician. Waiting for a verdict.... question.... should i now get my transmission oil checkedor changed....as I e read autos can have a problem. As I’m wanting to have trips (not around Oz) I want to trust this campervan ..... any suggestions greatly appreciated.
