Our workshop had to look at a Volkswagen Beetle recently that needed to get a quote on repairs and to prepare it for a blue and pink slip.
After our inspection we found the roof lining was sagging with the drivers door seal stripped. The drivers window switch was collapsed but still works and the drivers side mirror housing and glass were cracked. A new bonnet strut would be needed otherwise it would need to be regassed, this was the same for the boot strut. The window wiper jets were not working and needed a motor replacement. The bonnet latch alignment was out due to cracked radiator support and the rear brake pads were worn. Regassing the A/C system was required and the instrument cluster was faulty and needs to be fixed or replaced. As the solenoid was sticky we recommended a starter motor replacement. We also found the O/S inner CV boot was split, the sump plug for engine was leaking oil, clutch pedal pad had a rubber missing, the steering rack had excessive play and it dangerous to drive and the brake lights were inoperational.
