The benefits of servicing your VW Transporter


Safety: A VW Transporter is a large vehicle. Therefore, for the safety of you, your passengers and those around you, it’s important that your vehicle isn’t jeopardized by problems that would have been caught by a service.


Longevity: Regardless of what your VW Transporter’s main purpose is, you want it to last. After all, they’re not the cheapest of vehicles to buy. By having an annual service, you ensure your vehicle lasts for longer.


Reliability: If you use your van for work, you can’t risk a breakdown or failed MOT. That’ll cost you profit. If your van is converted and used to travel, being reliable can be the difference between exploring or not. So, get your vehicle serviced.


Savings: If nothing else catches your attention, this will. By having your VW Transporter serviced regularly, you’ll not only save £1000s by avoiding large repair bills, but you’ll also drastically increase your miles per gallon. Definitely win-win.

How do I know when my VW Transporter needs servicing?

Most Transporters need to be serviced either every 10,000 to 20,000 miles or every 12 to 24 months, whichever comes first.

Your VW Transporter will tell you it’s ready to be serviced when the service indicator or service light appears on your dashboard. However, if you’re unsure what you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll help you find out when you need your next service.

After your first Transporter service with Bowydd, we’ll send you a friendly reminder 4 weeks before you’re next due.

What Happens During a VW Transporter Service at Bowydd Garage

Typical VW Transporter Service Checklist


Lighting & Visibility – Front and rear lighting is thoroughly checked for correct operation. Additional visibility items such as glass and wipers are inspected, along with exterior mirrors and registration plates.


Steering, Drive, and Suspension – A comprehensive check of all joints, gaiters and wheel bearings is carried out. This is followed by an inspection of the front and rear shock absorbers and road springs.


Vehicle Interior – A thorough inspection is conducted of the seat belts, horn, hazard lighting, as well as all vehicle controls. We’ll also ensure the correct operation of the driver displays, noting any warning messages.


Under Bonnet – A full visual inspection is carried out ensuring no leaks exist and all components are serviceable. Where applicable, service items such as air filter, oil filter, sparks plugs, drive belts, etc are replaced.


Braking – Front and rear brake components are checked and measured so that service life can be reported upon.


Under Vehicle – After removal of the under trays, the engine oil is drained and transmission checked for leaks.


Tyre Inspection – All road wheels and tyres are inspected for serviceability and pressures adjusted prior to refitting. Where applicable, the spare wheel is inspected or inflation kit checked for operation.


Final Checks  – To conclude the service, the brake fluid and antifreeze are tested and the engine filled with new oil. Finally, the vehicle is road tested and service book or on online service record updated.
