Just got my T6 California back from body shop after hitting a deer, the standard of repair hasn’t been great (insurance) and it’s booked back in tomorrow after me only having it back 1 week.
Issues so far
1- passenger door won’t open from inside, it did after accident
2. Passenger window will not close automatically as they have taken trim away from mirror and not fitted back correctly
3. Failed to clip wiring loom in place for ACC and it fell out below under tray
4. I don’t think they have supplied factor grills or fitted correctly as there seems quiet a lot of movement. This is where one of you will hopefully help, is there much flex in upper grill below the headlight and also the lower grill around the ACC sensor? I have a short video but seems can only add videos here.

Hard to tell from your picture angle. Do you have the plastic ring around the sensor fitted, as I see some metal shining on the underside of the sensor.

Something like part A?

You definately need the surrounding cover.
Maybe someone with a T6 can clear this out for you?

Would be interested to know what insurance company you have. I had no issue with ours and allowed me to decide where it went for repair a few years ago. Always good to know how a company turns out after a claim

Your lower grill is missing the chrome trim as well

I’m thinking it’s possibly upside down and that is why wiring loom not clipped in as it’s been routed the wrong way?
If it has then it needs to be recalibrated to function correctly and only VW can do that, so I gather.

LV. They gave option of 1 repair centre, if I wanted to choose my own it would be an additional £200

Possible.

Someone with a T6 and ACC???

I thought that as well. Didn't realise the T6 had ACC.
I viewed a T6 that had that sensor by the dealer said it was for the emergency city braking function.

ACC was an option on the T6. All the later ones have the sensor anyway for emergency city braking.

It is on the Transporter vans as ACC is an Optional Extra, but City Braking is standard on some models.
Lots of threads on the T6 forum about retro fitting ACC to vehicles with City Braking.

ACC had been around on VW vehicles for years and not just invented for the T6.1. I have it by choice on my T6.
