SERVICING & MAINTENANCE
The importanance of maintainance and correct servicing of your VW Beetle.
This time of the year with heavy rains and wind can create many unnecessary problems leading to expensive repairs.
The most common is the area infront of the windscreen that does collect leaves and dirt.
When the vehicle is serviced this needs also to be cleared along with the two cavities on left and right hand side under the dash - if not water that does not drain away enters ECU plugs, wiper plug, wiper motor and drivers side electrical plugs that can cause permanent damage to the ECU, the dash cluster and wiper motor.
Can also create wet floors and permanently wet areas that lead to rusting.
