    V6 Spares for Cape York

    So I'm starting to think about assembling some spares for our Cape York trip at the end of July, and realised the last time I thought about spares for a big trip was with 'Little Grey', the 4 cylinder.
    So what would you think I need as spares for the V6? Filters, fuses but are there other things for the V6 that I should look into getting?

    Cheers
    Matt

    Mat,
    I put a pre filter water separator on mine, there is no way of knowing if you have a load of bad fuel with the OEM filter, there isnít even a drain plug!.

    OK so starting to assemble some spares, and thus far the list looks like
    - radiator hoses and clamps
    - assorted fuses
    - serpentine belt
    - fuel, air and oil filter

    Anything else guys? I've got tools and zip ties, wd40 etc but v6 amarok specific stuff, this is all I can think of.

    Have you got spares for Suzi as well, Matt?

    I'd be taking 2 prepacked wheel bearings and split pins at a minimum. Check or make sure you get the bearings, brakes and suspension checked before you leave. From memory the Quattro has 4 shocks? Ask the Modcon guys if they've had any reports of failures from your batch of campers. If not, you should be ok. If they have, consider taking a spare...

    Take a container of Adblue if your V6 is an early German model

    I also pack headlight bulbs, bit of a pain when they blow at night hours from any retailer or dealer
