Our members are spread right across the UK and some overseas members too, and the Club tries to provide activities and events that everyone can attend and enjoy. We have a strong presence at some of the UK’s biggest VW events as well as running our own camps and meeting up at smaller events.

Type 1 engine servicing

Hi Everyone,

Ever wanted to service your own engine but were uncertain on how?

This handy video guide shows you how to maintain your 1600 engine – setting the valves and timing, changing eh oil, tuning up that carburettor and changing the gearbox oil.

For those of you with a Beetle, there’s also tips on greasing the chassis – still important on your Type 2, even those of you with a Type 6 which are still prone to the rust bug.
