I know this subject has been discussed at length so please bare with me.
Looking to make my van sound like a golf and get some rubber door seals. Had a snoop on E of the Bay and just confused myself.
What bloody size do you buy? There seems to be a right old variation of seal sizes available to...
My tailgate seal has a gap of about an inch at the bottom. Maybe it's for drainage? It's an easy fix to buy a new seal but keen to know if anyone else has the same?
Its going to let a lot of heat out of the van in the winter and after doing all the insulation to a high standard it...
So, my driver's door rarely closes first time unless I slam it. The dreaded sounds-like-a-golf seal problem. But today, we wife was getting out of the van at the same time and the driver's door shut first time without slamming it.
Hmm, so if the air pressure is relieved, the driver's door...
In the recent freeze. The rubber that seals around the rear of the front arch, must have been frozen to the arch when I opened the door. It’s fitted to the door lower front.
I can’t find the part on the free ETKA sites, and can’t see if it comes complete with the little white clips that hold...
Afternoon Volksfriends, I hope you're all keeping well.
I'm not having much luck with my T6.1 so far. On day 1, the barn door opening mechanism failed. A month in, the front drivers window started leaking like a sieve.
Now I've got water coming in through the top of the sliding door past the...
I’ve read the thread on this about having them replaced under warranty but mine have only just started to go and it’s well out of warranty. Is it a feasible DIY job and if not, how much has it cost anyone to have a garage do it?
My17 T6 Shuttle is out of warranty and the near side (Left) sliding door seal needs replacing. I thought I knew what part number I was looking for, but have just ordered/received the wrong one.
A number of eBay sites suggest their aftermarket seals are both 7E0 843 791 and 7E0 843 792. I have...
I spotted water on my hob and sink yesturday. I could not see where it came from, from the inside, I opened the drivers side sliding door and it was wet, above the seal was dry which confused me. This however didnt show it was leaking unless they are not supposed to be wet? I thought one side of...
Anyone had this before?
Been in the Alps for a couple of weeks and the doors keep freezing shut, especially the side doors.
Spoke to some local T6 owners and they don’t suffer with this..
Van is parked outside but it’s only dropping to -8’c
I’ve dynomatted my van and now I’m adding a dodo acoustic thermal liner.
Where’s best to add it to the door and tailgate? I’ve dynomatted both the inner and outer skins. Do you add the thermal liner under the door trim or direct to the door outer skin!
So I've gone and fitted the door seal trim, and yes it now sounds less clunky, but I have an issue with the drivers door bouncing back open after pulling to close. Is there a limit to where the trim should finish thats making it do this?
Any advice welcome.
apologies for another thread on this subject, but I see these are not on the forum shop ATM.
When members fit these, are they replacing the originals or adding a 2nd, and do they help reduce noise?
When driving on dirt roads, how well dust proofed is the T6? You don’t have to wander too far afield in Oz to strike dust. Anyway, we like to go to out of the way places.
I am planning in install additional seals on the front doors as the first mod.
Thanks for your help and advice.
This morning a read a lot about these rusty door seals!! Horrified I had to have a look... and sure there it was door seal damaged and rust . What worried me more was the fact she was still in warranty BUT last week I dropped her on Bilstein B14’s and put some side bars and bigger bronze alloys...

Had puddles in my side steps !!
Not there before went to converters NOW is, they had door cards off for new speakers and a USB carp-lay plug in door pocket
Any other suggestions please...
I have been lurking on the forum for a few months, and I have to say it has been an invaluable help as I get going with my first van. I have owned VW's my whole life, and have done loved owning and driving everything from a MK1 Caddy, to various generations of the GTI. I have wanted a Van for...
