Can I replace a TD5 110 rear tub with a TDi rear tub?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

An accident a few years ago resulted in repairs to various sections of my TD5 D/cab's C-pillar and a few more panels in that region.I have now decided to replace the entire rear tub including the c-pillar i.e purchase the whole thing as an easier replacement job rather than fiddly repairs.

Unfortunately after the accident body putty was used instead of replacing panels. The C pillar and top half where the rear door closes is still quite off line.

Is it possible to replace the tub with a TDi tub? The only issue I can think of is around the filler cap.

Would there be any spot welding involved or is it straight bolt on?

There must be posts on this forum regarding this - would be happy if someone could steer me in the general direction.

Many thanks,

Will F

I would have thought that the Doublecab tub would have a fixed bulkhead, which given that doublecabs were not produced during the TDI's lifetime, would make the tub different?

By TDI, I am assuming you mean a stationwagon tub (ie so that the 2nd row doors, etc were catered for)?

The double cab's bulkhead is removable. Spot welded and riveted in places but still removable. i.e any pickup bulk head and rear window section can be removed and put into a standard SW tub to create a double cab or single cab.

I am just hoping that removing the spot welding is not going to be too difficult... :blink:
