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
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...
I've lowered the handbrake to accommodate swivel bases on both front seats. In the process I did a butcher's job on the cover and now it's time to tidy it up. Does anyone know where I can find a new cover for a lowered handbrake?
Fitting RIB offset swivels and want to keep the seats as low as possible so I am modifying the handbrake bracket so that I don’t have to fit the spacers that came with the RIB swivels.
No problem drilling out the original spotwelds and grinding off the short weld on the back corner of the...
Hi all, I have a T28 LWB on a '66 plate. Last MOT warned of uneven pad wear and worn discs on the rear, so I bought the cheapest brake wind back tool on Amazon some new Discs and Pads from GSF and dived on in. Everything changed ok, no problem there. The inner pads that came off were very worn...
