Hello. I seem to be having an issue fitting these side bars. The photo shows the bracket that came but the hole position at the back there only seems to be a tiny bung hole so can’t fit the retaining bolts in. Am I being dim?
So yesterday wandering around a bootfair of all places I see a set of stainless sidebars for a T5 - very nice ones at that.
I pay next to nothing for these, but when I get home I see that its missing the fitting kit, or at least it needs one.
I reached out to Trux, but they said they...

Our black side bars on our T6 have rusted and look a right mess so I’ve taken them off. I was gonna look for a powder coating firm but might just buy new ones. Any recommendations of suppliers? I’ve seen Leighton Vans..any others?

I’m after some OEM style Gloss Black sidebars in stainless steel not mild steel.
I bought these which are powder coated stainless but when they arrived today they were matte, not gloss which was disappointing. Now I can’t find an alternative.
I'm new to the Forum and this is my first post, so here goes !
What is the difference ( apart from the big price ) between the genuine VW Trapezoid side bars and the other bars supplied from either Leighton Vans or Vanstyle for example. Also LV describes them as chromed bars where as Vanstyle...
As advert, long wheel base versions in gloss black, bought from Leighton vans 2 weeks ago, fitted on van but am now going down ABT side skirt route, so available from next week.
collection from Liverpool as to much hassle to post.
Just before I buy I wanted to double check these have some good reviews.
I hear a few comments about aftermarket side bars causing jacking point issues but I’m not sure whether that applied...
Hi everyone. I have installed the above and as far as I can work out followed the instructions, but have got a problem. When the van is locked the LED ceiling lights and the side bar lights continue to glow. The side bar LEDs only work properly for about a second then go off. I thought it was a...
I'm in the middle of fitting a towbar+electrics and crawling under the van for the first time. When taking the body under-trays off I noticed there was a fair amount of debris under the sills. The van is only ~18months old so was quite surprised. I'm thinking this maybe a result of...
Folks, anyone fitted trapezoidal bars recently from vanstyle?
Everything was fine but the from c- bolt that holds the front brackets in don't fit into the holes in the van. The chassis clearance is not enough to get them in. Rears are fine.
Anyone had this issue? Bit annoying.
I have noticed rust on the drivers side side bar, these are genuine Vw bars purchased from Cheltenham Vw September 2018, what’s the chances they will replace it? Should it be going rusty already !
