    Yes, it is a VW Rabbit Convertible. My understanding it is the 1st year for the convertible and in 83 it became known as the Cabriolet. Imported into Georgia, Alabama (paperwork with car), made its way to Texas where I brought it home in ~ 1994 (paperwork with the car). Has never seen a...

    I have a 2007 New Beetle Convertible. I removed the center console and now I am reinstalling it. When I removed it the wiring came unplugged from the back of the convertible top switch. VW didn't leave any slack in the wire so it doesn't reach the back of the switch until the console is nearly...

    We recently had an early cold snap with a very wet snow and the car was parked outside. The next day, when my wife went out to go to work, the windows would not automatically lower to get into the car. Finally, she was able to get in, but then the window stayed down the 1/4" instead of going...

    Has anyone else experienced the inablility to unlock your '14 Beetle if more than 10 feet away?!? In the first year, under warranty, I pointed this out to Flow VW. They said the key fob was working just fine. It doesn't work just fine! Lent car to my daughter who asked why she couldn't unlock...

    Hi all, ever since we bought our beetle back in 2015 we have never had good DAB reception (UK DIGITAL RADIO). We are both avid DAB listeners and really miss this feature from our old car. I am aware the antennas are the lines on the front windscreen (which i think is super silly), is there...

    My 71 super beetle convertible top window has become detached from the top and leaks like crazy. Can this be fixed with window surgery, or do I need a whole new top?

    Just acquired my MIL's 73 super beetle and the convertible mechanism needs to be refurbished. They just put on a new top not that long ago so I'm wondering if the top fabric/liner can be removed and reused without damaging it so that I can refurb the mecahnism

    I ended up "fixing" my overheating issue I addressed in my last thread but now I got a new problem.. I took the car to work which is about a 13 mile drive, 11 of those being highway. On my way in I was doing a steady 65-70 with the motor at about 3300RPM, traffic speed picked up some so as...

    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? Would a disc brake conversion (front) be worth the money spent? I have been looking at Jbugs for parts, who are some...

    Hey guys, I'll keep both the introduction and question short (kinda). My names Steve, currently working on an 84 Rabbit Convertible that I've had sitting around for a good 7 years. It was my first car, bought with MY own money, title in MY name, all that jazz.. She was 'rigged' by some guys in...
