    Thin metal cover underneath of t6.1

    Hi all, I hit some flood water a bit fast on Friday and it seems to have damaged part of the underside of my T6.1. There is a piece of thin, flimsy silver metal hanging down. I’m unsure if it’s a heat shield or a protective element. There seems to be a single piece down either side of the...

    Gearbox Rattle

    Just wondering if anyone has had the same problem I have recently had with my van, its only got 20,000 miles on the clock. So, I heard a rattle at low speed in 1-3 gear, you could only really hear it when driving through built up areas where the noise had something to bounce off. Took it into VW...

    Underslung Water Tank Melted!

    As part of my conversion I've had an under-slung fresh water tank fitted to my T6 LWB. It's the long slim tank which fits next to the exhaust almost down the centre of the van. The first one a I had fitted was not very secure and melted against the exhaust. I have since built a more secure way...

    MY18 exhaust design

    1st time under my van today to remove the spare wheel so it doesn't get pinched and drill the holes for the Cali seat rails. Looks like some one's pinched the rear section of the exhaust system.. When did VW decide to shorten the system so it ends halfway along the van?
