  4. Brake and Power Steering Fluid Question

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...

    We just bought a 66 Beetle convertible and I have a few questions. Where is the engine number stamped and how do I decode that? Can the VIN be broken down for more information?
