As per the title, anyone recommend a VW specialist for servicing / repairs in the West Mids / South Staffs?
My 204 / DSG is just 4 years old this month but has only done 27k, its got a flexible service schedule and nothing is showing, but I could do with some advice on whether the timing...
Just wondered if there was any advice / VW schedule for maintaining the sliding door(s)?
I guess keeping roller bearings and latches well lubricated and checking slider mechanism fixings for tightness are the things that spring to mind.
Anything else to consider? There have been a few threads...
I am thinking about getting some levelling ramps. However as I have never used them before I am wondering how easy/difficult it is to control driving onto them with a DSG box.
My worry is the risk of driving straight over them and if you did is it much of a disaster, which Im guessing depends...
SWMBO’s Octavia just been in for service and brake fluid - basically oil/filter change and check lots of things - £310 :eek:
What is everyones thoughts on DIY servicing? Considering many of us rip stuff out, fit other stuff in and generally modify wherever possible!
I’m the sort of person who...
Something came up recently that I was stumped on - and id forgotten what a massive rip off paying someone else to fix your van can be.

Hi there. I've been inspired by @fezza68's helpful thread RE dealers in the NW.

Can anyone recommend a pair of ramps to suit 275mm tyres.
I don't want the low rise versions & I've seen a set of plastic 3T high rise (200mm tall) ones on flea bay for £70.
Open to suggestions though.. thanks
I’ve read Dellmassive’s excellent post on servicing but I’m still unsure what to do.
I have a 68 plate Kombi which is for recreational use only (less than 10K Miles/year) and I understand VW no longer do service books. Do I rely on the vehicle to let me know when the service is due or should I...
My T6 is now over 3 years old but recently converted to a camper. It was serviced last August so I will have to think about getting it done at sometime. Is the VW VC service cost worth it as I could get the next 4 + mot for
£799 + the dreaded VAT. Thats 2 interim and 2 full.
I was thinking of a...
Hi all after a bit of advice.
My 2017 150hp T6 Campervan was serviced on 24/5/18 at 5k miles before I bought it . It now has 7.5k miles on it and the service indicator shows it needing an inspection service in 33 days.
Am I interpreting that correctly ? I don’t want to invalidate the warranty...
I purchased my 2017 T6 3 months ago from VW in Abingdon.
Noticed I didn’t get a service book, they’ve said you don’t get one anymore as the service info is kept digitally on a database...
Does this sound correct??
