    Power-Latching Tailgate weird issue

    Hi Guys, I have factory fitted power latching on the tailgate but it’s stopped working, causing the tailgate to rattle as it doesn’t seem to close, I’ve hoovered our all round the latch but still no joy and the thought of a trip across Manchester to the main dealer doesn’t fill me with joy -...

    "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...

    Power-Latching sliding-door problems

    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...

    Retrofitting power latch to T5.1

    Hi all, I’m fitting the power latching to my van but have stumbled upon an issue. Using the small module (same as used for the rear tailgate) I can get the latch to pull closed when Provided a negative feed but I cannot get it to open when the negative feed is lost. The motors are fine as if i...

    More tailgate power latching woes.

    After 4 days back at the dealers they've decided that my intermittent fault with the tailgate power latching is due to corrosion from condensation due to us sleeping in the van....don't ask. Anyway, here's my question:- I want to do away with the power latching on the tailgate, it's a complete...

    Hi, I'd like to get one of these kits for the side door from Pauly, has anyone installed this onto a fully converted t6 campervan?

    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.

    Hi there. We have a 2015 kombi with manual doors and they are really noisy (you have to slam them really hard to close them). I was sure I read on here about someone upgrading their normal doors to power-latching but I can't find it anymore. I have tried searching power latching and lots of...
