    Reimo pop top: EasyFit or SuperFlat?

    Hi guys, I'm looking for a pop up roof for my t6. I chose reimo and now I'm deciding between easyfit and superflat. don't know how it is with the installation? superflat is also self-adhesive and just sticks like easyfit? Thank you

    The dreaded digitiser/touch screen

    Has anyone successfully removed the old digitiser? It appears mine has partially unbonded itself so a replacement over the top won't really cut it. Am I opening myself up for all kinds of pain trying to separate the two?

    Simple kingsize+ bed on DIY ply base - anyone else done similar ?

    For occasional overnight use, I've made a ply base that covers nearly all of the rear of our Shuttle (with both rear rows of seats removed), and will just throw 2 80x200cm Ikea foam mattresses on top of it, which are almost a perfect fit. Total cost £120 for three 8x4 12mm ply sheets from...

    Dead spots on my multimedia touch screen

    My 2017 highline with the larger multimedia screen has decided to give me some dead spots on the touch screen middle to the right of the screen. Does anyone know of a fix that doesn’t break the bank? I see you can potentially reprogramme it? Cheers Callum

    Touchscreen Replacement for OEM Head Unit Digitiser

    I know there is a post somewhere guiding you through the DIY repair of a touchscreen by adding an overlay. However this one provides a screw by screw guide with no missing bits to cause confusion. Literally just finished mine and it was a breeze.

    Morning all I'm in the world of pain that is a 1500 page PDF of all of the possible combinations of wiring anyone could ever imagine might have been needed for troubleshooting T6 electrics.
