  1. Always use genuine VW G11 or G12+ coolant with distilled or demineralised water to stop corrosion.

  2. Replace your black radiator cap with the modified blue cap to save bursting hoses (VW 025 121 321B).

  3. Use genuine VW synthetic oil in the transaxle and only fill to 10mm below the filler plug to avoid blowing seals.

  4. Rotate your tyres regularly to avoid premature operation of the viscous coupling. Ensure that all tyres are the same diameter.

  5. Use minimum 95 (RON) octane fuel to avoid head cracking.

  6. Only use a toothed alternator belt (VW 025 903 137G) and do not overtension to avoid water pump bearing failure.

  7. Try to avoid tight turns on paved surfaces to avoid drive train damage.

  8. If you travel off road fit front drive shaft protectors (251 407 405/6) and alternator belt stone guards (025 199 913/5) if not already fitted.

  9. Do not fit higher wattage headlight bulbs without relays to avoid burning out ignition switches and fuse panels.

  10. If your van misfires (MV engine) after extensive highway driving fit modified wiring harness (VW 025 906 302) to the air flow sensor.
