    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together


    Mod edit: thread title changed in May 2008

    Default How NOT to get your VW bus washed / lifted on a hydraulic lift

    The hydraulic lift at all service stations in pakistan are two parallel bars raised by a central pipe which also acts as a hydraulic cylinder. Vehicles are raised this way to reach under for a better cleaning of the under-carriage. However with the VW buses there is the risk of resting the parallel bars on the tie rods. This bends the tie rods when the vehicle is raised. The change is not easily noticeable to an untrained eye but the difference in driving can be felt by even a mildly aware driver as the front alignment goes out the window.

    The following was noticed when Bella was being looked over at Khalid sahib's workshop. It has since been rectified but a complete alignment is still in order.

    If you must go to a car wash, I suggest take your bus to one which has a washing ramp or deck. The service walla can then crawl in the passage and direct the water jet at those hard to reach areas where grime build-up as a result is common.

    I believe it was FS? Was it? Just wondering if it still retains its pancake motor.

    That reminds me that a friend was looking for a pancake for his squareback which has a 1300cc flat four installed, does anyone have a lead on one? If so, please let me know.

    Airkewld Tip of the day - All ball joint control arms have notches on them. Align those notches with the notches on the ball joints and your ball joints will be installed correctly.

    The spot where the cars are worked on depends on the solar cycle. In simple english it means that the cars are parked where there is a bit of shade, dirt or paved does not matter.

    Using a floor jack on dirt = SUICIDE, for shade do what I used to do - 2 or 3 giant picnic umbrellas (I nicked them from Walls Ice cream) - portable shade..

    Good idea. I, however, make sure that the cars are secured on jack stands before any work commences and my constant nagging has got them in the habit of using the stands now everytime they are working under the car.
