Good Evening all, New to this T6 forum, after fitting swivel seats I was wondering if anyone has replaced the hand break mechanism with a hydraulic unit which doesn’t imped the operational swivel of the driver seat.
An suggestions or-ideas.
I’ve ordered two front seat rust Lee swivel bases for the passenger and drivers seat. Transporter HQ web site says I need a hand brake adapter bracket which are available on eBay for about £19.
Problem is I’ve looked and can’t see any. (Tbh not even sure what it looks like !)
Whilst preparing to cut a 64 mm hole in the side of my drivers seat base I lifted the seat base complete with handbrake off the four bolts and inadvertently lifted the handbrake lever, it raised with a number of clicks which I thought nothing about.
Anyway I cut the hole for the heater ducting...
I have one of these lowering kits for sale.
Some slight marks where it was bolted in, but they are covered by the plastic cover when fitted

Looking for £35 collected from Burgess Hill (RH15) or can post for an extra £5
One of the best mods so far is the Grand California handbrake.
You lift it up then let go and it drops to the floor while still being engaged. Allows you to swivel the seat so much easier.
Yes yes, I know all you posh gits with dsg can just put it in Park but for those without this is a game...
Can it be done - re lowered hand brake. Have searched through this forum (awesome information everywhere here - I end up down a rabbit hole and picking up other tips), thought I had seen at some point someone saying - heh if you cut here and there the old trim will fit around the lowered...
I have been very foolish. I was removing the bulkhead retainers in a van with a floor already fitted so I needed to go from the cab side, and the angle grinder nicked the handbrake cable where it enters the van.
It's holding, but is there anyway of testing the cable to know if it's good/needs...
Hi all …. Have I ( I say I but I actually mean my wife :( ) left the T6 in D and put the hand brake on . Jumped out and then I jumped in a minute later and moved it . Would this have caused any damage at all ?
Stupid question but, Is there anyway the handbrake could be made higher, my wife drives our T6 but she has to lean over and down the side of the drivers seat to reach the handbrake. Shes only small and the drivers seat is at its lowest setting. Hill starts are hard for her. Thanks
Needing some help.
Has anyone fitted a sportscraft hand brake lowering kit? I have attached the bracket to the handbrake but when I put it back on the rear bolt fowls on the seat base.
Am I doing something stupid? I have taken a photo. It won’t go in because of that rear bolt
So with ACC and DSG in the T6 we have the FollowToStop capability.
But i wont more, i wont to have "Stop and Go" like it is available in the VW Sharan PQ35 which is very likely like the T6 which is PQ25.
Needles to say we need Auto-Hold and EPB to get Stop & Go capability.
T6 ABS is a complete...
Thought my hand brake was sticking and sprayed some WD40 over the rear springs (behind brake callipers) was better but still get a hot burning smell from them quite often as if brake is permanently on.. yet to take a look but wondered if anyone else has suffered the same and knew the resolve?
I took out the drivers seat in my T6 today to cut away the bulkhead retaining lip.
Removed handbrake assembly from the seat base and unclipped the cable under the seat.
After putting it all back the handbrake light is permanently on whether or not the handbrake is applied.
Anybody had similar...
I need to replace my handbrake cable. The thread on the end of the cable where it adjust on the actual lever has been stripped as such I need to replace the entire cable. The cable exits through the floor covering, through to the underside of the van.
Any idea please guys?
Hi All, I haven't yet looked at the handbrake lever setup on my (new-to-me) 2019 T6 DSG - I thought it best to see if anyone has any advice first-off. So, has anyone any experience or heard if this is practical or reasonably possible? At its most basic could a torsion bar through suitable...
I have an issue with my handbrake. I've searched and can't find anything on the forum, only similar thing I can find is on the T4 forum.
We use our camper every other weekend. Last weekend but one, the handbrake warning light started coming on after it was used (e.g. after pulling away from a...
