Hi, I'm wondering whether I've got any chance of getting zinc inclusion on the paintwork of my T6 covered under warranty. I noticed a handful of little, uniform lumps had appeared on various parts of my Silver T6 about a couple of months ago. I took the van to my nearest VW approved paint and...
The sliding door lower bracket bearing collapsed and have scraped off all the paint along the whole length that it runs on. I have fit a new bracket so that is now sorted, would it be an easy job for a professional spray painter to get in there, prep it & respray all that area.
Interested to find out a little more about paint colour longevity. We’d like a new 6.1 in cherry red but need to know if the colour is likely to fade over what would be many years of loving ownership. Alternately, we may go for the metallic Indiam grey
So, I guess I’m wanting to know...
Finally got to wash the salt off today and found a little bit of rust just in front of the rear wheel. I know it’s not the end of the world but what is the best way of tackling it? Would a smart repair sort this or is it more involved? Thanks as always.
Hi all, thanks for taking the time to read this. I brought a brand new t6.1 have waited over 4months for it to arrive and I drove it off the forecourt today. Get home under new light I can see the entire paint work has circular scratches on the clear coat of the paint work. It's black and really...
I’m currently having a big argument with Volkswagens warranty Department as I took this in to be repaired (Vw Guildford) as they said it would be covered under warranty but then they checked the depth of the paint and said it was too thick and that I must of had work done to it so it wasn’t...
Looking for some advice. I was cleaning the van and noticed that the sliding door paintwork had about 5x areas where there appears to be rust forming under the paint. These are small areas, only 5-10mm in diameter but are only going to get worse over time.
As a first step, I have emailed VW...
Hi All, looking for advise. My Converted 2016 T6 Highline has an issue with the bottom sliding door mechanism just starting to touch the paintwork underneath the runner. With the van only 4 year old, owned and cared for since day one by myself.
I’m guessing with the added weight in the door (a...
how can I stop the bottom of my barn doors from rusting? I have had both doors lifted slightly at the hinges, but rain water still collects below and causing them to rust???
thanks in advance
I’ve got a new VW T6 Caravelle in black and after two washes, one through the drive through and one with a brush and jet wash, it’s covered in small scratches and a couple of big ones.
At first I thought it was bad luck and there must have been grit or brake particles on the brush, but now I...
I've just noticed my carpet lining on the inside of my sliding door rubs against the side panel and wheel arch when opening. I tried adjusting the bottom 2x m8 spline bolts which helped a bit but still not quite enough. Is there anything else i can do? Thanks in advance

So just checking over the van for odd jobs that need doing.
checking all the rubber seals I see the front door seals have rubbed off the paint on the wing where the door closes onto the bodywork at the front. Only a thin but long 7 inches/high
small amount of orange/brown rust already on...
Hi all, I’ve recently noticed this on the rear wheel arch. There’s no sign of perforation and it looks like it’s bubbling up from behind. Is this likely to be covered under warranty. It’s a 16 plate. It’s just over three years, but I believe there’s a 12 year warranty?
Had our 2016 T6 shuttle 4 months now and just noticed the lacquer and paint flaking on the bottom of the rear quarter panel.
Can anyone confirm if this is a warranty job?
Assuming they come with something like a 10yr paint warranty?
I’ll be contacting VW today but just wanted to ask the...
