    Hi All, fitted my tailgate power latch system to my van. All wired in etc but I've noticed that the latch, when the door is open sits about halfway down the slider, then when you close it it moved out then in. On opening the tailgate you can hear the latch almost dance in and out a couple of...

    "Soft Close Woes" update

    I got my kombi back today after only 3 ½ weeks. Soft close was working yesterday but I let them keep it an extra day so that the service guy could do a 100 mile round trip to see if he could break it. He didn’t. So what did they do? As far as I can gather they: Plugged it all back in – and it...

    Sliding door power latching

    Not sure you call it auto latching.. or soft close! Either way my van has decided to soft close when it feels like it! Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. Has anyone else had issues like this? The door and van have had 3 stage sound proofing and insulation. Would that cause it due to...

    Faulty Power-latching

    One of my electric side doors is playing up not closing properly like it’s struggling for power. My problem is I’m not here at the moment and my wife is hounding me about it. What’s the best thing for her to do as the closest dealer is a long trek away. It’s only just over a year old.
