    T6.1 rust prevention

    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...

    It's Raining! What's The Wading Depth A Standard T6?

    Quite a bit of rain in West Yorkshire today, and I nearly came a cropper in a very big "puddle". Fortunately I knew the road, and the camber meant it was deeper on one side and not the other, but it got me thinking what's the safe wading depth of a standard T6? I know the key is the position of...

    Sump Protectors, Warranty

    Hi all, quick question, are the under van plastic guards covered under warranty? Reason I ask is this morning I drove through a flood which I did not see due to it still being dark and when I reduced my speed noticed a strange sound. Upon inspection at the garage to get fuel I looked under the...
