Another common problem with the VW T4 can be worn or even completely missing gear selector bushes/balls. This may be evident by having excessive movement in the gear stick and difficulty in changing gear.

Another potential fault with the Volkswagen T5 can be the drive system! specifically the drive shafts, unlike conventional drive shafts which go inside the gearbox Volkswagen use a stub axle that does that and the drive shaft in turn is fitted to that via a splined connection! this connection is where the problem can occur with the splines wearing out which unfortunately ends up a break down situation and the vehicle requiring recovery This is a job where the price can vary dramatically due to the difference in how much a new shaft and stub can be purchased!
