    What is this substance in the arches?

    I was finally getting round to giving our '71 plate camper a proper clean this evening and noticed a substance congealed behind the springs on the inside of the drivers side front wheel arch. It's the first time I've looked up in there and I'm hoping it's just wax from the manufacturing...

    part numbers - undertray

    Hoping someone on here can help me! I've tried to search on the forum and found Dellmassive's image of a parts diagram but I'm not sure if the part I'm looking for is on there. I was giving the underside of my 2016 T6 Transporter a good wash today and noticed what appears to be a missing section...

    Undertray Part Number Query

    I drove through a puddle, flooded road recently. Backed out okay and since driven about 250 miles so major damage averted. However someone wading through the water approached me as I was checking the van and said they'd found this in the water and it might have come off my van, they didn't see...

    Webasto protection plate

    If like me you have mounted your Webasto underside, and concerned the standard VW plastic protection cover is not up to the job. Well Seikel have produced another quality aluminium skid plate to cover under the right side of the van.

    T6.1 underbody corrosion

    I had a look under my 20 plate T6.1 with just over 2000 miles on, (yes, I know I need to use it more!), which is mostly kept in the garage when not being used. I must say, I was a little surprised that the wishbones and main frame, had signs of some surface corrosion starting on them. Was...

    Wanted T6 Offside Under-tray

    Hi, Looking to buy the front section of under-tray on the drivers side of my T6 as my existing one is split. Don’t mind if second hand or new, just don’t have a clue where to start to find this piece. Any help appreciated. Is that something you can source for me @Pauly ?

    Crusty bottom.

    My van (4yrs old 21K) has been into my local independent garage for MOT & Cambelt. They said that it all looks very dry and 'crusty' underneath due to the fact that it's not getting much road use at the moment. They suggested spraying underneath with some sort of lubricant to stop all the panels...

    T6.1 Plastic underbody panels

    Should I be worried about this? I'm guessing it's from all the rain we've been having, but I'd expect the van to be able to cope with it. Anyone had similar problems?

    Bolts / Nuts For The Hexagonal Holes In The Chassis

    There are loads of these hexagonal holes and I assume you can put a 'blind' nut in and bolt something to it. I'm wanting to put a bracket under the van and this looks like an obvious attachment point. I'm thinking they'd be an M8 bolt? I know this is a really basic question, so please stop...
