Jack housing issue

Post by Ginna » Tue May 14, 2019 5:09 pm

Hi we have a T-roc sel,red n black with runner boards (side steps) just gone 12mths old,2wks after delivery we received a message saying the jack needed updating as the original didn’t work with the boards,the jack is larger than the original so doesn’t fit in the mouldings,the larger jack is now standard fit but yet VW uk say there is no new housing and all VW are doing is cutting lumps out of the mouldings to allow fit,surely this is not correct on a brand new car ,as anyone else had the same issue or better still if you own a newer model could you post pictures of your jack housing moulds please

Sorry Ginna can’t help you but it sounds about right, they obviously didn’t think about that at design stage.
But my question to you is where have you been ? A whole year to do your 1st post !
How is the car going, any problems ?
What’s the spec, engine, trim etc
Welcome and hope to hear more from you 👂
