    I am now onto repair wiring my "expected year of manufacture 1974) super beetle with 13420589** chassis number. When I took the bug off the road some 30 years ago over 4 house moves and 3 remote garages a lot of wiring has gone missing. Anyway. I have worked out most of the missing bits...

    Hi, My van won't start and am trying to work out what I need to do to get it running again. I'm pretty sure it's just a problem with the starter motor as I've tried putting the key in the ignition, turned the lights on, turned the key, lights dim and the starter motor makes a brief noise before...

    Afternoon all. Our bay's starter motor was a goner so we exchanged in at GSF today. I replaced the bush with the one that came with the new starter. I'm sure that I've got the bush straight in the bellhousing but the new starter just won't fit in the bush. It did originally fit but was...

    Evening techy peeps. :) Problem I have at the moment is that my starter motor appears to be sticking. It's always done it on and off for years. Absolutely fine one minute and then won't crank the next. When I turn the key to second position I just get dimmer dash lights. Girlfriend wasn't very...

    :eek: Hi all, came across a weird thing yesterday, came back to the bug with shopping, put key in ignition and turned it over, car didn't fire up, released the key but the starter kept turning the engine over, i even turned the ignition off, but it was still turning the engine??? Kept going for...

    I have a 1964 Beetle with a 1600 twin carb engine and a 12V conversion. The starter is practically new, the engine has only down a 1000 miles and the battery is brand new. The alternator is producing comfortably over 12V back into the battery, yet, when starting, it sounds like the battery is...

    Got my rebuilt engine put in the buggy at the weekend but the damn thing wont start! I rebuilt the old stock 1300 as a 2054cc. Put it in with no plugs in and cranked it over on the starter until the oil pressure light went out. I then put the plugs in and wired it all up, but the starter...

    I haven't started my bay for a few months but when i attempted to today the starter just makes a rapid clicking noise. :( Tried a different starter and it did exactly the same thing, click, click, click, click, click. Checked all the wiring, replaced any connections that looked dodgy and it...
