engine removal

  1. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    I couldn't find this info when I was looking, but if it's helpful to anybody... You need 60cm from ground to underside of vehicle, which means you will need axle stands that can rise to at least 49cm :) Also, You can get the engine out with a little less clearance from the side than the back.

    Ok, a few questions about this :) What tools will I need? Am I best off draining the oil while the engine is still in the beetle? How hard is it to remove the engine? How do I store the engine? will leaving it on a rug while I'm stripping it be the easiest way? without damaging the engine...
