    Jacking points, trolley jacks and axle stands

    I’ve lifted cars on trolley jacks at home before, and I’ve been very happy doing so as it’s been obvious where the jacking points are, and cars aren’t that heavy. But before I set about getting my van up in the air, I’d like to ask the knowledgeable folk on here how they go about this. I’ve...

    Found T6 Jack

    Due to a bad day with a stuck front wheel puncture and the van falling off the jack on a grassy campsite on Barra resulting in a damaged sill and bent jack :( I need a replacement jack for my van. Anyone got one they would be willing to post up to me? And if so how much :)

    Boring but essential purchase!

    After finding out the wench or the factory jack were unusable with the new wheels and the side bars. I’m now able to change a wheel if needed.

    Is there another part to the jack holder?

    Hi. I’ve watched YouTube vids, scoured hundreds of photos and searched the forum but can’t find anything conclusive on this: my T6 had a work fit out before I bought it 2nd hand. They included the jack assembly and the jack stowage thread is in the wheel arch. Should there be another component...

    Locking wheel nut key failed

    Anyone else had issues with the OEM wheel locking bolts? Had to take front wheel off a couple of days ago as a stone ended up between the inner side of the brake disk and the disk protector (wife was driving!!!!!!!), noise was horrific. Anyway, ended up not being able to get the wheel off as the...

    OEM Jack - where can I get one from?

    Our edition came with the weird fake jack bit of plastic, and squirty bottle and pump. But, we are putting an actual spare wheel under it, and would like a real jack to go with it. We’ve left the jack mount point in our conversion, so... any idea where we can get an oem jack from that fixes there?

    Retrofit wheel carrier and jack

    Hi folks, I'm one of the lucky ones that got sludge and a pump instead of a spare wheel and jack. I have the spare and am looking for a jack and wheel bracket on that dreaded auction site. I've found a few, but some say that they are for T5/T6 from 2010 - 2017 others say to 2018. My bus is...

    Vw Wheel Brace Is Utter Pony!

    As above really. What a piece of junk!! How they think that it’s acceptable to put something of such poor quality into a vehicle with a 40k price tag is beyond me. (I realise life’s to short to worry about such things but.. well... it gripped my s...)
