VW Van Wiper Blades

Over a period of time, VW Van Wiper Blades will begin to wear. When this wear starts to happen to VW Wiper Blades you may start to notice smearing, juddering or even just poor performance clearing the screen. To ensure you can have a pleasurable driving experience and ensure the safety of you and other drivers it is important to make sure that genuine VW wiper blades are changed regularly in pairs. At VW Van Parts Direct we supply genuine sets of Front Wiper Blades, and individual Rear Wiper Blades all sourced directly from VW UK.

How often should you change your VW Van Wiper Blades?

We would recommend that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle wiper blades are changed at least every 12 months depending on the number of miles that you drive each year and the amount of UV light from the sun they are exposed to. VW Windshield Wipers are constructed from rubber which degrades over time, with use and from UV exposure. Over time the rubber on the windscreen wipers will become harder and more brittle which can cause cracks, tears and stiffness to the blade. This will result in poorer performance from your wiper blade.

Why should I buy OEM / Genuine Wiper Blades?

From many years working with VW, in our experience, there is nothing better than genuine (OEM) wiper blades. They simply work better than the after-market, non-genuine options. OEM Wiper Blades were designed to work specifically with your exact windscreen, this means a spring that was designed to keep the wiper pressed to your windscreen at exactly the right pressure. The composition of the rubber is of a higher quality which means the wipers will last longer and you do not need to struggle with adaptors which are required for many aftermarket wiper-blades.

Genuine VW Van Brake Discs Replacement – Know the Signs:

VW Van Brakes

Genuine VW Van Brake Discs

There are several warning signs to look out for when checking the VW Van brake discs. First and foremost your VW Brake Discs should be regularly checked every 7,500 miles. However, if your car pulls to one side when braking, your brakes start to squeal or you feel the brake pedal flutter then you should get your brakes looked at immediately.

If upon inspection the brake discs are found to be cracked, lipped or scored then it is always advisable that they are changed. If the brake pads are low then this can cause your VW Brake Discs to become scored or lipped. Once this happens, you will have to change your VW Brake Pads & Discs at the same time.

Should you have had your VW Brake Discs and Pads changed at the same time, it is important to remember that it will take approximately 200 miles of careful driving for your VW brake discs and pads to bed in properly; this will ensure a longer life for your genuine VW Brake Pads and Discs.

If you do not drive carefully or there is excessive braking during the bedding-in period, your brakes could become damaged. This will result in a loss of braking performance and efficiency and ultimately safety.

Unsure of the amount of life left in your VW Brake Discs or Pads? Contact your local VW Commercial Vehicles Dealer and arrange a Free Vehicle Health Check.

At VW Van Parts Direct we can supply brake pads for all Volkswagen Vans. We supply genuine VW brake pads directly from VW UK giving you the peace of mind that they are exactly the right specification for your van and are the same high standard VW brake pads that were fitted to your car from new. Our large stock supplies are bought directly from VW UK, at a price designed to challenge non-OEM suppliers of brake pads for your vehicle.

When should Volkswagen brake pads be changed?

The change interval for the brake pads on your vehicle is different for each driver, as it depends on lots of factors such as driving style, road type, as well as vehicle and load weight. All can affect the longevity of your genuine VW brake pads.

How do you know when your Volkswagen brake pads require changing?

To check genuine Volkswagen brake pads most vehicles will have a brake wear indicator (warning light) on the dashboard that informs you that your VW brake pads are coming to the end of their life and require replacing. With some older vehicles however these may have been removed or your car may not have them so it is important to have your brakes checked routinely.

There are some other common symptoms to look out for. These include a loud grinding sound when applying the brakes, high pitched squealing coming from the wheels, the car pulling under braking and bad vibrations felt through the brake pedal when reducing speed.  All these symptoms point to possible issues with your Genuine VW brake pads and/or Discs.

The Crafter

New Grand California

For bigger adventures

A night under the stars. An unforgettable summer weekend festival with friends. A beach house, ski chalet and return ticket, all in one. The all-new Grand California motorhome is Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ latest addition to its proud story of building freedom on four wheels. Featuring a comfortable, spacious interior, cutting-edge technology and a platform taken from the proven Crafter, the Grand California motorhome expands upon previous generations of a camper van.

Stretch out and relax

Featuring plenty of space to take home comforts on the road, the Grand California fits beds for two adults and two children, a separate wet room and comfy living space into a safe, efficient package. The white surfaces create an airy atmosphere, helped by the optional panoramic skylights. Enjoy open plan van life wherever you go.

Comfort and style

A defining feature of the all-new Grand California is the separate wet room. The 840x800mm compartment includes a toilet, shower and space-saving sink. There’s also integrated shelving and storage for toiletries and towels. The ventilating skylight clears steam quickly and motion-sensing lights as standard add a touch of style.

Little things, big results

You don’t build the world’s best-selling camper van without having good ideas along the way. Ideas like an external temperature-controlled shower – perfect for hosing sand or mud off after a long day – or built-in storage for the camping chairs and table.

The New e-Transporter 6.1

Power and performance

The ABT e-Transporter 6.1’s electric drivetrain doesn’t compromise on power. The standard 83kW electric motor packs 200 Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 17.4 seconds. Built to the high standards of quality you’ve come to expect from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, the motor is lighter, quieter and smoother to drive than ever before. Plus, the ABT e-Transporter 6.1’s payload is not compromised, as the compact batteries are fitted below the load area. We’re so confident in the quality of the ABT e-Transporter 6.1, that the high voltage battery comes with eight years or 100,000 miles warranty (whichever is soonest) on all material or manufacturing defects.

Government Plug In Vehicle grant

The ABT e-Transporter 6.1 currently qualifies for the Plug In Vehicle grant3, offered by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) to promote the purchase of ultra-low emission vehicles.

The £8,000 grant has already been deducted from the recommended ‘on the road’ price shown (and therefore the recommended ‘on the road’ price will increase in the event that grant funding is withdrawn, or eligibility for the grant or the grant amount changes, for any reason).

Your local Van Centre will submit the details of your order online in order to claim the grant funding. The grant is subject to full T&Cs and eligibility requirements 

To find out more contact your local Van Centre or visit https://www.gov.uk/plug-in-car-van-grants 

Built for your business

With a high load capacity and a wide range of equipment as standard, the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 is built with your business in mind. Driving the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 means zero road tax (VED) and lower running and servicing costs, saving you and your business money. Plus, because the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 is zero-emissions whilst driving, it’s also exempt from low emission zone charges, including the London Congestion Charge. The government now offers grants that can lower the sale price of your electric vehicle and even cut the cost of installing at-home charging stations. You can take advantage of these money-saving initiatives that make going green more affordable as well as practical.
