Many thanks Eberhard. We have informed VW today - I will let you know how this progresses.Hello @Glynn,
I am sorry to see this issue. I can imagine it will be a huge project to get this sorted.
I believe I have seen this issue several times in Caliboard.de. Unfortunately I haven't follow all the posts so I don't know the outcome of the repair. The only thing I believe happened that one VW dealer tried not to accept this as a warranty case (I hope yours is still under warranty).
If this would happened to my Grand California I would inform immediately 1.) my VW dealer, 2.) VW Ireland (obviously in your case VW UK), and for good measurement, VW Nutzfahrzeuge in Germany.
I would demand from Volkswagen how they plan to fix this, how they avoid this happen in the future, how long it will take to repair.
Best of luck and let us know the outcome.
Hi there are posts relating to cracks in the wall in this face book group.Many thanks Eberhard. We have informed VW today - I will let you know how this progresses.
Looks to me as if the heat defuser is either slightly misshapen or the hole is a tad to small then the hot air enlarges the defuser causing it to expand and crack the plastic walling and obviously a defect and should be a warranty issue.Hi. Has anyone else had an issue with a crack in the bathroom wall? The crack is on the wall where the heating vent is located - Suddenly appeared, I am assuming it must have something to do with the heat from the Truma heater??View attachment 103706
Thank youThis should be an easy fix for a competent plastic welder - I've had trashed motorcycle fairings repaired to 'like-new' using this technique so a minor crack won't be a challenge.
I definitely would not let the dealer take out and replace the panel as this will involve a significant amount of dismantling and I wouldn't particularly trust the dealer to get this right...
In the meantime use superglue at the end of the crack to stop it getting worse
