    Service intervals for a T6.1

    Our T6.1 was registered on the 31st May 2023 and I’ve just received a call from VW saying it’s ready for its first service in April! What’s the general service interval? It’s done 6800 miles if that matters. Thanks all.

    Why do main dealers change the sump plug every oil change? Or do they?

    Hi guys I’m new to the forum. I recently carried out my first oil and filter change since buying my T6. I noticed on all the previous main dealers oil services that they charged for a new sump plug. So naturally assuming it had a crush washer I purchased one with the oil filter. However on...

    VW Service waiting times

    The van is in Listers Coventry. I posted in another thread about my flashing coil lights, vacuum air leak error code and ACC issues. I am able to leave my van in with them cos I have another car and I don’t need it for work etc. They can possibly fit it in quicker if they have a cancellation...

He diagnosed my DMF when others didn’t and replaced it with new clutch and release bearing for less than a £1k all in. Very happy so...

    Servicing - VW dealer or local garage?

    My 2019 T6 is asking for an inspection (I'm assuming it means a service). I've done 35,000 miles. Do I have to take it to my inept VW van centre, or can I take it to my friendly local garage? What are the benefits or taking it to VW (if any)? I'm guessing the bulk of the service is an oil...
