The workshop team at Bridge Classic Cars have been working their way through the list of jobs on the 1991 Volkswagen T4 Transporter.

The first job, was to work on the rear suspension on the T4. The rear sat considerably higher than the front, so the customer has asked the team to sort it out. Thanks to the bountiful aftermarket, the team will be replacing the set of springs for the camper. The heavy-duty, stiff springs will be taken out of the car and replaced with a new set of lowering springs which allow the same support but lowering the ride height at the back of the van.

After that, the team could work on getting the cold start sorted which had been reported by the customer as not working. The team found the cable had seized but after being reworked the team got it to start working again and tested.

Finally, the team have reshimmed the power steering and adjusted the alternator belt.
