    2016 T6: Zinc inclusion in paintwork, warranty won't cover it

    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...

    Any sprayers on here for advice please?

    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.

    Imperfection in paintwork

    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.

    Repairing of rusty patches forming on sliding door paintwork

    Hi, 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.

    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?
