    Hi chaps, Recently fitted a reconditioned gear box to my beetle, and ever since I've had intermittent clutch issues. The problem is that after a period of driving I seem to lose full clutch function. Engaging gears, first in particular, becomes difficult and sometimes it grinds. Now, this...

    Hi Guys, I Need some help, as same of you may know I've recently bought a '66 bug; which had new pans and channels etc in before I acquired it.

    Hi, I have a LWB Hitop T4, 1994, 2.4D with just short of 240,000 miles. The engine is rattly, the gearbox whines a bit and the bodywork wont win a show and shine this side of a zobie apocalypse. However, until 2 weeks ago it worked OK. Now, you need to either shove very hard to get in to...

    Hi, My clutch pedal went straight to the floor after a short drive, bringing the car to a juddering halt as it was still in gear... Me and the AA chap were trying to work out what was wrong, and we were both stumped - the clutch cable is attached at both ends (pedal and clutch). When we tried...

    Whilst on a short rally today, I was driving along without any issues, then suddenly my clutch pedal started shaking/vibrating quite violently, making quite a racket... I pulled over straight away and checked to see if i could engage/disengage the clutch fully, and select all of the gears...

    Hi all, My 1970 beetle 1200 has a squealing/ scraping sound when the clutch is depressed. Nothing when it's not pressed though.

    Anyone have one they don't need? £60 from Megabug so anything cheaper would be good.... :) These were fitted to 1.9 T25 water cooled 1983 on and all 2.1 injection T25 models.

    1974, 1200 T1. Even before her resto 18months ago "Pumpkin" gave the odd problem selecting 2nd. However it was just an occasional thing; sometimes it was difficult (or impossible!) to get 2nd for a week, then it would be fine for months. Sometimes it would be trouble for just a few gear shifts...
