Scissor Lift Table
Model: VAS6131A

With the introduction of the new power unit generation, Volkswagen AG also sets new standards in engine repair.
The engines have to be removed with the respective gearbox downwards as one unit. This power unit assembly has a weight of approx. 800kg, which means that the standard engine and gearbox jack cannot be used.
This equipment represents a new removal and installation philosophy which will also be applied for future models. With introduction of the scissor-type assembly platform VAS 6131 A the required removal philosophy in the automobile upper class is taken account of. The engine and gearbox can be removed and installed faster without additional equipment. The use of an A-frame lift assures simple and safe positioning of the assembly platform.
When a vehicle is raised and due to stress-related ageing of the engine and gearbox mountings, there is often a slightly warped or distorted effect on the vehicle and/or power unit. In order that all mounting points can still be reached, the assembly platform can be tilted three-dimensionally by 60 mm. For universal use of the scissor-type assembly platform, there is an engine plate and gearbox plate with locking template. To adapt the equipment to the relevant power unit assembly, the respective supports are bolted to the plates. The gearbox plate can be moved back and forth allowing the engine and gearbox to be separated on the assembly platform without the need for great physical effort.


The CAB400A power cable is required for the VAS6131A and is not included with the VAS6131A. CAB400A is a extended Power cord for VAS6131A. Comes with connector that mates with VAS6131 female power connection. CAB400A power cable is available in the tools catalog (Tool # CAB400A).
