Can anyone help with the following please? 1. a very stiff gear change. 2. very heavy steering. 3. the ride height at the front seems to be too low, ie. the tyres are only an inch or so from the wheel arches even though the adjusters are at their max height. 4. does anyone have the tuning instructions for a pair of Weber 34 ICTs. I have the insallation instructions which refer to tuning instructions which are missing. Many thanks.

1. the gearstick may want taking out (2 bolts front and rear of it) and then the linkage underneath needs lubricating

2. check the tyre pressures, should be around 20 Psi at the front, jack the front of the car up and try moving the wheels, if they move ok then it maybe how its supposed to be, depends on what you mean by heavy and how many old VWs you have driven before, alternatively the steering box maybe a little tight, see how much play you have in the steering when the wheels are central, normally theres about an inch movement.

3. beetles are never to low ;) depends on who installed the adjusters, some people who put there own adjusters in dont really think about ever raising it back up that much, does it scrape the ground when adjusted to the bottom?

4.there is a thread on Just Kampers website... Click here
