Description

I have a 2003 LWB T4 Caravelle 8 seats which I can either sell now requiring a little tlc, or take off the road until January when I have more time and sort it out myself and sell at a higher price. I have owned this van for 3 years and It has never let me down. It starts first time every time and pulls like a train. I fancy a change now and have been offered a good deal on a newer van which I have bought. I will post more pictures at the weekend when I have more time. Bodywork is silver, mostly good, no rot, some scrapes on nearside rear quarter otherwise tidy. Mileage is 480k, previous owner had 3 of these doing shuttle services from east midlands to London airports. He had his own workshop and they were very well maintained. The other 2 had done 650k and 780k miles. He had re-map to 135 bhp. Don't be put off by the miles engine is sweet and van drives lovely.
It has aircon, remote central locking, heating/aircon in rear, cruise control, Captains swivel seats, (need recovering really,) vw towbar and electrics. There is a night heater which I have never used so assume it isn't working.
During my ownership I have always serviced regularly and it has had the following:

Cam belt and fuel pump belts and tensioners.

Pedal box replaced

Subframe replaced, new wishbones,ball joints, trackrod ends.

Power steering pump,

Full De cat exhaust,

Rear discs and callipers,

Sony DAB Headunit,

New glow plugs.

Genuine Audi 17 inch alloys and new load rated commercial tyres.

Oil and filters regularly changed.

Much more I'm sure I have forgotten. It hasn't wanted for anything. Recently however I have been very busy working and also doing up a house so I haven't had the time to keep on top of it.

In my opinion and I am not a mechanic these are the faults someone needs to address:

Clutch slipping- it can be driven away but it does slip in higher gears on hills. I have a DMF in mint condition from a low mileage van I will throw in.

Handbrake not working - may be cables stretched, not had chance to check yet.

Airbag light on.

Glowplug light flashing- fault code was brake light switch but this was replaced and it came on again shortly afterwards.

Small ammount of bodywork as previously mentioned.

MOT is up on Dec 8th.

I'm looking for £2300 no offers. Tel 07710873490. Viewing in Leek area. First to see will buy.
