LHD T4 steering column UJ

Postby NickV » Mon Dec 07, 2015 5:47 pm

Hi all

My steering column universal joint has excessive play on my 1991 LHD T4 California.

Is this the same part as the RHD- I can not find one at present and van has failed MOT so am in a bit of trouble?

Any advice/help with parts or a complete column desperately needed!!!

Sorry same post as in For Sale....!
I seem to be one of the main tech help askers on here....have created my own repair panels since last post BTW

Cheers

Nick

Hi Nick

I don't know the first thing about T4s, but Silver Street might be worth a call.

Cheers, Carl.
Have nothing on your VW that you do not know will make it go faster, or believe to be beautiful.

Just tried Silver Street
For the record /anyone following this thread, the Intermediate Steering Shaft [lower part of steering column with UJ],
part number 701422751C is suitable for LHD and RHD:) although VW have none left in stock as were discontinued in 2012 :(, according to the Parts Dept of Silver St


However they did have the T4 top beering for steering column- there are only 3 of these left in VW warehouse apparently- I have just ordered one of them! :)
Cheers for the heads up CK

Thanks Muddy

Tracked the UJ down through VW Heritage, has to be ordered in from Germany, a two week wait, better late than never I suppose! :|

Cheers
