Description

If you are travelling in a VW bus (kombi) and need parts or help, this is the place to be: A whole block full of mechanics and parts dealers. We had our brake pads for the rear drum break fixed and payed 80000 incl. new material and work. The guys at Castivolks have 30 years of experience in busses and are very helpful and fair. Within 100 metres around of this place, you're in VW heaven.

Worked on our VW Vanagon T3. Took apart front suspension and regreased our t3technique polyurathane bushings with proper grease from M.M. Repuestos just around the corner. Then brought us to a professional alignment shop to get it sorted. Our mechanic Armando as awesome. Took his time and did the job right. Recommended!

did some basic work on our vanagon (syncro, 88) like changing oil/oil filter, gasoline filter, air filter and some stuff more. we also wanted to exchange the break pads, but the type we needed was not available - so just got some new brake lining around two blocks from Casti Volks (duration: approx. 2 hours of waiting for it). In general: very friendly, uncomplicated staff. They worked right on the pavement since we got a high top so the van doesn't fit in their garage :) for all the work, we needed two days (drove back to our apparment in Chapinero, 2km from there). Talk to them in advance if you got major things to be done, so they can arrange a little bit the stuff they need. Only in Spanish! Best is, getting there with your VW so they can have a look at it (better than calling). we left our van there while we were getting back to town for lunch, without any problems. highly recommended! pricing fair!

And: get some spare parts directly round the corner and talk to Miss Nubia - she and her stuff will help you out!

Mecanic specialized in old VW. The staff is friendly and know what they are doing.
Prices are very fair (20,000 COP for timing and idle adjustment of our bus).

Did great work (welding, windscreenwiper repair) on our VW T4. Very small shop. Big rigs will not fit in for welding jobs, but other work is being done on the sidewalk. Went to work right away. Good price. Could park & sleep inside.

Good, honest and patient VW-Mechanic! We had to replace and fix some parts on the front axle, and he did really good job for more than a fair price. Very uncomplicated and innovative. Around in this neighborhood you will find a lot of part dealer for VW and other cars.
