    When is a warranty not a warranty?

    I called VW as my 3 year warranty is about to expire and I have had problems with the Moll battery. Was told as they couldn’t look at it for another month it would not be covered by warranty that remained as they wouldn’t be able to invoice VW within the remaining warranty! Hence a 3 year...

    Does painting brake callipers affect warranty?

    Hi all ! If I were to paint my brake callipers would this affect my warranty should I need to make a claim for any work to be undertaken or should I wait until warranty expires as my van is on a 19 plate.

    Warranty claims after camper conversion

    just wondering if anyone has had any issues with Vw if claiming under warranty, e.g on the engine or running gear after they have had a custom camper conversion? Are Vw ok with it or does making the conversion make the warranty exempt

    Does Suspension need Changing if I fit nice 18” wheels?

    New Transporter ordered. T32 4motion Kombi. Was advised by dealer that any increase in wheel size above 18” would invalidate the warranty. Is this right? secondly-was thinking about 18” alloys (20” look good but 18” is fine for me). Would I need to change the suspension set up and if so -How...

    What does extended warranty cover?

    Has anyone bothered with an extended warranty? I don't normally bother but I've been quoted £329 for an additional 24 months with a mileage limit of 80000 miles. Seems like reasonable value for the peace of mind. Thoughts anyone??????? MD

    Will Coilovers affect warranty?

    Evening! I’m after some advice on fitting coilovers and how I stand with Vw warranty. My t6 is a 69 and has been back to Vw after 9000miles for a new steering rack but they didn’t replace the pump. I’m having coilovers fitted next week and was wondering if this would effect any warranty claims...

    Warranty only 2 years

    I bought my 2017 T6 in December In the UK and imported it to Ireland. Reason being, was that I just couldn’t find a highline DSG here (well found one but it was a lot dearer than the ones in the UK at the time). In many cases it’s quite common in Ireland to be attracted to the UK market. Main...

    After 4 days back at the dealers they've decided that my intermittent fault with the tailgate power latching is due to corrosion from condensation due to us sleeping in the van....don't ask. Anyway, here's my question:- I want to do away with the power latching on the tailgate, it's a complete...

    Starter Battery Wiring - VW Disagreement

    Interesting one. I've had a few problems with my starter battery discharging (its a Varta, not a Moll so thats not the issue!). Basically my battery goes flat after around 5-7d inactivity. Thats pretty short imo. This was an issue before lockdown and is not just due to the extended hiatus. I've...

    Water Leak From Rear Spoiler?

    So my van has gone into VW for a few warranty niggles. One being water in the tailgate. They seem to think that it's not the typical high level brake light and that it's the fixings on the genuine spoiler. I was led to believe they are bonded on and can't imagine there being any concealed...

    Egr Warranty Extension

    Took my van in for a few jobs whilst still under warranty. Was told that there was an egr fault. They apparently followed a procedure and were expecting to have to flush it out but upon collection I was told it didn’t need the flush. Checked with carista and egr fault still present. Back to the...
