Shock Pad, Body to Chassis, Rear, 10mm Thick, 1956-77 Beetle, Super Beetle, Ghia, and THING, 2 Pieces, 111-899-117B-113-115A
Shock Pad, Body to Chassis, Rear, 10mm Thick, 1956-77 Beetle, Super Beetle, Ghia, and THING, 2 Pieces, 111-899-117B-113-115A
Price: $4.95

Shock Pad, Body to Chassis, Rear, 10mm Thick, 1956-77 Beetle, Super Beetle, Ghia, and THING, 2 Pieces, 111-899-117B-113-115A sit between the pan and body, and dampen road vibration. Typically there are 2 thicknesses used, 10mm and 17mm, these are the 10mm. Ideally you'd buy 2 sets of the 10mm thick, and 1 set of the thicker ones. Put the thin ones on all 4s, and IF there is a gap at one of the locations (typically the rear one in the rear wheel well), swap them out for the thicker ones, then bolt it down.

Warning: it's very common for the bolt that holds the body to the chassis to be very seized, be sure to use a lot of penetrating oil and work it back and forth to loosen it, shearing it off is a pain to deal with!

Also, if you have a 1968 and later car with a "clunk" in the back that you can't figure out (you'd changed shocks with no luck), usually the rear pads are compressed, and the body has a gap to the chassis. The body is flexing when you hit a bump, and hitting the pad. Using the thick pad and tightening the bolt down to prevent the flex will solve the problem!

Headlight Wire Tube (Rubber), 1967+ Beetle and Super Beetle Sedan and Convertible,PAIR, 111-185C
Headlight Wire Tube (Rubber), 1967+ Beetle and Super Beetle Sedan and Convertible,PAIR, 111-185C
Price: $10.95

Headlight Wire Tube (Rubber), 1967+ Beetle and Super Beetle Sedan and Convertible,PAIR, 111-185C are the critical rubber tube which runs between the front quarter panel, and the headlight bucket on the fender. This keeps the headlight wiring safe and dry! These are often cracked or missing, and water, rocks, sand, and gravel are destroying the delicate headlight wires!

To install these you must use a needle or end of a paperclip, shoved into the headlight bulb end of the plug. This releases the lock tab on the slip on wire end, and allows you to wiggle the wire out of the plug. Do all 3. Fish the wires through the new boot, put the boot into the holes on the body and headlight bucket, then re-install the wire ends into the clip, and plug it back in!
