    Sliding door trim rattle

    The nearside sliding door on my caravelle has a rattle. It’s the lowest left edge of the trim piece. I can lift it away from the door frame. I can see no easy way to remove the trim as it’s a pretty big piece. For now I’ve put some felt tape over the area but I’d like to fix it ideally. Any...

    Can I fit a Kombi/Caravelle sliding-door to a Panel Van?

    So, I have a clean Kombi sliding door to swap onto my van, as the old one is beaten up. The new door is complete with handle, door locking/opening mechanism, seal and a lovely sliding window, of course.

    I thought that a tube in the sliding door was a drain for the window. I am pretty sure that the water from the window doesn’t go anywhere other than out of the black plastic cover, underneath and then to the outside. In that case, what’s the tube ?
