Breather hose from crankcase to turbocharger air intake will be replaced with a new one which has a redesigned heating element.

Possible ice buildup in the hose when intake air is very cold. Ice sucked into turbocharger might cause damage.

PS. Mine was built in Nov-2015 (Engine CXFA EU6, 150ps).

How do I find out if this is applicable for my VW T6 ? Its build september 2015 (CXFA EU6, 15ops) ?

Any VW dealer can tell it by van's VIN/registration.

As there hasn't been any other mentions about this in the Forum it seems this is applicable only in Nordic countries. Up here quite a few turbos were damaged in winter 2016-17 - before the modification.
