Hi,

Just had new tyres fitted all round... and when they took the front tyres off I was supprised to see drum brakes, I had assumed that my beetle would have discs..... its a 1975 beetle, 1300. Is this correct????? My 1973 Type 2 has discs brakes on the front!

Cheers,

Matt.

That's correct, all 1300s had drum brakes as standard.

Discs were only on Beetles with 1500 or 1600 engines.

All vans had them because they're so much heavier
