    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

    Where are you located? Go to your local volkswagen workshop. I dont think There is any shortage of beams.
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    Good straight beams are getting harder to locate - both the early and late ones. I had to find one recently and it took me some searching. The prices have gone up considerably as well. Another item that you might need to find along with the beam are the arms that are not worn out. You can replace the ball joints but if the arms are worn out you would have excessive play, ruining your ride quality.

    A good straight beam should cost you anything between 5 and 8k.

    Recently a speedometer on one of my cars started making these weird shrieking sounds that grew louder with speed till the noise was unbearable. The noise resembled a cat being put thru a wringer and the only immediate solution was to disconnect the speedometer cable to preserve my sanity.

    These speedometer units are about half a century old and I had a fair idea what would be the problem so I took it apart and serviced it at home. I took pictures as i went along to share here just in case you may have experienced the same problem or if the speedometer cable has snapped inexplicably after a short time of operation. One of the causes of speedometer cable failure is the jamming up of the moving parts which is also the cause of the weird noise.

    So here we go. The first step is to remove the speedometer from the car by loosening two flat head screws that hold it in place on the dash. Before you disconnect any wires, flag each with a small piece of paper and some scotch tape. Write on the piece of paper where the wire was connected..e.g. indicator, oil, generator, high beam, instrument light, earth etc.

    The tools required are a flat head screwdriver and pointed nose pliers (chooha plas). You would need some cleaning solvent or WD 40, a tiny bit of grease (good quality) and some silicon lubricant spray.

    SO here we go. Grab some pop corn and enjoy the show.

    The first step after you have set the speedometer on your work table is to clean it with a soft cloth. Remove the chrome ring that holds the glass by prying the edge away with a flat head screw driver. You would need to pry away just a quarter of the ring and the rest would just slide off with minimal persuasion. Once the chrome ring is off, set the speedometer flat on a clean surface and unscrew the two flat head screws at the back that hold the insides of the speedometer in place. After removing the screws push the neck where the speedometer cable is attached inwards and the insides would come out easily. In the early models the high beam light has a cylindrical metal tube that may require some jiggling and pushing forward with a flat head screwdriver. However it is a fairly painless procedure

    There is already evidence of dried lubricant that has done its job over the years and now needs to be cleaned and redone. The insides are held together by metal tabs that are twisted. To take the mechanism apart I used the pointed nose pliers and straightened the tabs. The two sections came apart easily. There is a cone like piece that is held in place by a single flat head screw that can be undone quite easily to reveal the core.

    Cleaning with a good solvent does the trick. I used a carb cleaner spray but if that is not available cleaning the parts with clean kerosene oil would also do the job.

    After thorough cleaning of the gear area I applied some clean general purpose grease with the tip of a screwdriver. There is no need to go overboard by applying too much. All it needs is a dab, spread out evenly.
