Important information from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
• In order to preserve the structural integrity of the truck bed, Volkswagen recommends the installation of reinforcement brackets (J-brace) when installing accessories on the rail of the truck bed.
• In practice, this means that in the case of accessories (e.g. hardtops) that extend above the side wall of the truck bed and weigh more than 45 kg, the installation of a reinforcement J-brace is required. The part in question is shown in blue on the picture.
• Failure to install the brackets may void the manufacturer's warranty.
• Please contact your Volkswagen dealer for more information.
