    Reflective strip at bottom of tailgate

    Hi all. My Caravelle has this reflective strip at the bottom of the tailgate. It fits so well I thought OEM but VW claim to only do chrome versions. Does anyone have similar or know where to buy a replacement please? Cheers Neal.

    Are tailgates usually more expensive?

    I've been looking at Transporters non stop for the last three weeks. I ideally want a Highline, low mileage and with a tailgate. Speaking to dealers everywhere they are all saying the same thing, that Tailgates are in high demand at the moment due to the surge in people converting them to...

    Tailgate bike rack & security/anti-theft bolts

    Recently bought a Thule Wanderway tailgate rack (which is fab!), but like other similar racks is only secured by 2 security torx screws, and I now realise that you can remove the rack without opening the tailgate if you're prepared to lose the two lower clamps, which I imagine are easily...

    Smooth tailgate.

    Has anyone gone old school and smoothed off the tailgate VW badge? It seems everyone debadges the transporter/TDI badges and changes the backing colour etc on the round VW emblem. I'm aiming to achieve a sleek/stealth look on my van and am debating whether or not to waste some hard earned cash...

    Full width tailgate opening plastic OEM trim

    Mates I see some vans with the full width plastic trim on the tailgate threshold on the floor. My PV, and many other vans' photos on here, have the cut down central trim around the latch keep only, but plastic nut inserts either side for a full width trim. It looks like there's bits missing...

    Refitting tailgate seal after carpeting

    As the title says, just finished carpet lining, but I cant seem to refit the tailgate seal over the lip now it has extra thickness of the carpet. Is there a special technique? I'd hate to trim the carpet back from the edge because the seal gives the best edge, but running out of options..
