    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
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    Your 66 should be with a ball joint suspension. Link/king pin suspension was offered till 1965. Please check and if possible do share a picture taken from the inside of the front wheel.

    NOT! Your car has ball joints. A quick search on the internet came up with these pictures.
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -1416225
    and ball joint front
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -1416226

    Hope you can make a comparison now.

    No. One cannot practically go on till step 12. I shall try (no promises) to capture a step by step pictorial guide to what is possible for us since I have to restore a friend's VW's Speedo soon. I had put the condition that he help me, so if he does, I shall ask him to be the cameraman. Last time I restored a Speedo was years ago......the results are superb and worth the effort.

    Many of my DIYs are not documented in pics since I get my hands really dirty and don't have the patience to handle the camera while working.

    The pictures you posted earlier shows the lower ball joint clearly. I have circled it in red. To make things clearer for you, the round bottom part (upper in case of the upper ball joint since it is oriented opposite when fixed to car) has been circled in blue. Ball joints are pressed inside the trailing arm which has a round hole to accept the same.

    Its a tight fit requiring a press to fit or extract. Also, one needs to have it correctly placed while pressing else disaster can strike (they can pop out or spin inside the hole). Therefore you need a mechanic who is well versed in VDubs to carry out the work under his supervision at the press shop. I warn you since you are spending good effort and money to source quality parts, do not skimp on choice of mechanic please.

    Finally, the yellow lines show you where the dust boot was supposed to be on the ball joint in your car. I guess the absence of the same makes the ball joint look hardly like one!!

    One does need four tie rod ends to do one car, so you should have anything 'extra'.

    However, simply by 'eyeballing' these pics, I am not able to tell whether these are the early or late type. As mentioned earlier......now in local mechanics lingo they are 'patli goli and moti goli wallay' respectively. You need the 'patli goli wallay' ends for your car. I shall revisit the website and try to dig up the pics of what you need.

    Make sure you ask your supplier that you need the early variety (until May 1968 cars)

    This shows a Super bug ball joint (circled in red). Specifically post 1974 type. 1971 to 1973 Super bugs had a slightly different type of ball joint. So 1302 Supers AND the 1973 1303 Super shared the same ball joints and front suspension components.

    Note that on Supers the ball joint is oriented downwards, like the upper ball joints of the standard bugs.

    Also, Supers have one pair of ball joints against two pairs for standard bugs 1966 onwards.

    ^^ You do not need the King and Link pin sets as already pointed out.

    Many people confuse a 66 with a 65 and vice versa. Yours is a 66 car, first year for ball joints.

    What you require is:
    1) A set of 4 tie rod ends (patli goli walay as mentioned by asad)
    2) A set of 2 upper ball joints (one for each side)
    3) A set of 2 lower ball joints (one for each side)

    Someone correct me if i'm wrong, some manufacturers make ball joints that work for both upper and lower arms. In that case, you will just need a set of 4 ball joints.
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    Sounds like your carb jets are blocked. Remove the air filter housing, start the car, while idling place your hand flat on the top (essentially blocking it) and then removing it (before it stalls). Repeat this a few times and it should help your car run a bit smoother in the short term. Ideally though, it sounds like it needs to visit a mechanic for a tune up
