    Hi all, I'm wondering if it's possible to wire a low fuel warning light on a 1302 beetle? And if so how? And yes before you all barrage me with the why don't you just fill it up when it gets to the red line that's not the point... ;) I've got a LHD 1302 Super Beetle which has some Porsche...

    I'm looking to see if I have the correct part fitted to my car. I think my heater tubes, the ones that join the exchanger to the body of the car, are the early type (it's a 1972, 1302) as they are kind of metal spiral inners with vinyl outers. I have tried to order the plastic tube type before...

    Fusebox on her indoors's 1302s would seem to be past its sell by date and in need of replacement. She wants to keep the car as original as possible so I'm trying to avoid doing any major rewiring of the fusebox. The box is one of the 12 fuse varieties but when I look at sites listing a new box...

    tried to reserch online but not too much joy - you guys are too knowledgeable and I will get my answer quicker! I have a 1971 1302s. My pops had put a golf Mk1 seat in with adaptors but backrest was too narrow and never fit properly. I purchased a 2nd hand rear seat, originally from a 70's...

    Hi. Last night while having a tantrum my missus snapped off my only drivers door/ ignition key in the door lock. Its a 1970 1302. I am hoping to get a lock number and then get a new set of keys cut. I've got several questions I was hoping you could help with: 1. Is this possible? 2. If so...

    I have just bought myself a lovely 1302 super beetle. It wasnt until I bought it i started to do a little research and realised these were only made between 1971-72. In 1973 the 1303 was launched. All the time the standard 1300 and 1500 beetle was being produced. Mine is a standard 1302 being...

    My 1302s bug won't start on a cold morning :( it's got to the point where I have to bump start her down the hill every morning, and even that doesn't work half the time! Trust me, it is worse than it sounds, I can do 10 - 15 mins of pushing to get to the slope of the hill... I'm stuck for...

    I'm rebuilding a 1972 1302 and have got the body off and started cutting out all the old rust and rot. The bottom of my bulkhead is rotten and literally coming off in my hands but the top is solid as rock! Does anyone know if I can buy just a bottom repair panel or wether a standard Beetle...

    I was just wondering if anyone has got templates for the seats of a 1972 beetle as it would make the re covering a lot faster for me :) Or if anyone knows of any cheap seats as i have a low budget as its my first car :) any help would be appreciated

    I want to put the correct deck lid on my beetle but just want to check I choose the right one before setting to work finding/painting one etc... My beetle is a 1972 1300 so I believe I am right in thinking it should have the four vent deck lid. But is there any difference between 1302/1303 deck...

    I don't know if it's my imagination but when selecting gear the gearstick seems to a lot 'looser' now than when we first had the car. Selecting 1st is now easier if I select 3rd first and then flick into 1st. 2nd gear is pot luck and is quite often a 'crunchy' affair because there is a lot of...

    Been working on so many different peoples' vehicles I've never really had a chance to do our own vehicles so I've finally started on our 1971 1302 semi-auto. She was very kindly donated to us by our friends who lived in Southend at the time. So far the car has been sat for 10 years. The "as...

    I have an odd situation with my 1972 1302 beetle, hopefully someone here will have seen it before and will be able to suggest a cause/solution. When stationary there is virtually no play in the steering which is good. However, when driving the steering when turning right feels a lot heavier...

    Calling all 1302/03 Cabrio's. Just seen Hussein Omer's '73 1303 in Volksworld. Wow. It just goes to show even fat chicks can look good. O.k. so it had over 30K spent on it which will always be out of reach for most of us but let's see all of your pride and joys out there on here. Post pics...

    My sons Beetle had some lowered, adjustable front struts and 70's style alloys on it when he bought it. The tyres rubbed over the slightest bump causing violent jerks on the steering wheel and scaring the poor lad sh*tless! We swapped back to standard struts and problem cured but the thing looks...

    I know there has probably been a thread on this before, but i am a complete noob and would like some advie from you guys on the cheapest way to absolutely deck my bug! I have been told by a good friend that its not the same as lowering his 67 which we did like 10 years ago.... apparently this...
