Tapped my front intake camshaft seal back into place and checked PCV. PCV okay via glove test. Appears it may have just worked itself free or it just wasn't installed right by PO.

Butyl tape I believe. That's the lazy way to stop squeaks. :mrgreen:
It is indeed butyl tape forced in from the top and it works really well. A piece of electrical or duck tape ( cloth) might clean up the cosmetics a bit.

Is this a straight swap?
Well, the light bulb holder on the facelift is one piece, not in two like the pre-facelift.
You'll also need the connectors for the new light bulb holder, as they´re not the same either, so there
will be some wiring to do.
Plus, you´ll have to add resistors for the LED brake light, if you don´t want the "broken bulb" warning to show
every time you press the brake.

Seems like alot to do, but it goes pretty fast :D

Needed a break from life. Took the T5 deep into the Adirondack park to a cabin removed from life’s worries.

Can’t escape Sweden though.

I always love seeing wagons doing wagon things!

Had my cousin correct my alignment today, now my steering wheel is straighter. For some reason it seems I can never get it perfectly straight. It sure looks good though!

Stance looks nice. Should you have an R on your egg crate?

Stars up here incredible at night. No light pollution. Just walked dogs for a bio break and spent 30 minutes admiring constellations.

Very nice!

Thanks! I'm happy with how it sits now. iPd springs up front and nivomat fooler spacers in the rear. It actually rides really nicely.
Now you got my thinking... I need to find a small R badge.

You'll have to provide the information for this hidden gem at some point =)

Route 12 up to the Adirondack park. Lots of places to put the Transporter for free.

Need to teach thegirls how to pee in the woods and that some stick s in the woods rattle and bite.
