    Do you stand on your wheels to get to the roof? How low did you go?

    I have sports kit I put on the roof. I stand on the back wheels to strap stuff onto the roof rack. I want to lower the van but don’t know how low I can go and still stand on the back wheel. How low have you gone in this situation?

    Original panel roof adhesive is getting softer in the sun making the roof panel to lift off the transversal bars a little bit, basically it is not bonded very well anymore. Anyone seen this before? Maybe it is something I have done when fitting the soundeadning... Do you know what is that...

    Roof design gone backwards?

    Having washed it last weekend, I got a good look at the roof. Ribs run front to back as you all know, and it’s fairly flat up there. Van was damp this morning, and I had a short drive in stop start traffic. The water just kept on coming onto the screen. My old T4 was slightly domed meaning it...

    Roof noise when window is open.

    Hi, I’ve now been driving my T6 for a week or so and have discovered a panting noise from the roof when the drivers side window is open, it’s bloody annoying. I have a Caravelle and so don’t expect the roof to be panting away like a panel van. My T5.1 Caravelle didn't do it and I don’t know...

    Sagging Roof Panel

    The previous owner of my van had a bulkhead in it which has now been removed. The middle roof panel which is directly behind where the bulkhead was is starting to sag at the front. Should this now be replaced with a longer panel or is there a wider strip panel to hold them up.

    Sca Roof Fault?

    Hey guys I have noticed the stainless steel brackets on top of the rear hinges on the SCA 194 pano roof are causing damage to the canvas as it closes. Before you all shout the obvious it has nothing to do with the canvas bellowing out. It’s where the canvas attaches to the roof with the Alu...
