Fixing a convertible top - gluing it back to the rear glass-Step 1
My 2004 Sebring's convertible top came unglued in the back. We took it to
several that said I MUST have a new top. Terry and I just ignored them and
bought some 3m Window Weld and glued it back on. So far, it's worked great!
We hope to help someone else save money with these tips and videos. Look
for step 2. Update: Jan. 12, 2013 and the topk is still holding on!
VW New Beetle Headlight, Driver's side - Left
The Volkswagen New Beetle is a small family car, introduced by Volkswagen
in 1998, drawing heavy inspiration from the exterior design of the original
Beetle. Unlike the original Beetle, the New Beetle has its engine in the
front driving the front wheels and luggage storage in the rear. In May
2010, Volkswagen announced that production of the current body of the New
Beetle will cease in 2011. A redesigned model will replace it.
Strong public reaction to the Concept 1 convinced the company to develop a
production version which was launched as the New Beetle in 1998, based on
the Golf IV's larger PQ34 platform. The New Beetle is related to the
original only in name and appearance (including the absence of a car emblem
script with the exception of the VW logo). A convertible was added in mid
year 2003 to replace the Volkswagen Cabrio.
The New Beetle carries many design similarities with the original VW
Beetle: separate wings, vestigial running boards, sloping headlamps and
large round tail lights, as well as a high rounded roofline. It is
assembled currently in VW Puebla factory in Mexico.

Redesigning retro is a herculean task. You need to change the vehicle
enough to be worth the effort, meanwhile maintaining an iconic retro theme.
If you don't change enough, shoppers won't see a reason to trade in their
old flashback for the new time capsule. Change it too much and you're left
with a caricature. The task is so daunting that few even attempt it. (Just
look at the one-hit-wonders: PT Cruiser, HHR, SSR and Thunderbird.)VW on
the other hand is different. After all they continued to build and sell the
same Beetle with minor tweaks for 65 years straight. If anyone can tweak
retro and convince people they need it, it's VW. Sure enough, 2012 was the
best Beetle sales year since 1973. As a chaser to VW's revived retro-mojo,
the Beetle is now offered sans-top and VW tossed us the keys to a
brown-on-brown model for a week so we could get our 70s on. Can you dig it?
This Beetle, like the old "New Beetle," sells on nostalgia and
cutesy-bubbly good looks. In fact, the first words anyone utters upon
seeing a Beetle are: "aww, its cute." See the problem? How many guys buy
"cute" cars? Recognizing the problem, VW set out to "butch things up" with
the second generation FWD Beetle. The bubbly-fenders, round headlamps and
"smiling" hood lines haven't left but they have been joined by VW's
corporate "Gillette" grille, sharper corners and more "masculine" tail
lamps. (Or so I'm told.) The redesign also adds an incredible 3.5 inches to
the Bug's width and 5 inches to the length. The extra length means the
Bug's side profile is no longer semi-circular, something of a loss for
retro fans. The wider stance and crisper creases do make Herbie look
meaner, but the ginormous fenders make him look fatter as well.
Sorry '70s fans, our chocolate brown Bug didn't come with a built-in CB
radio. Burn! Instead shoppers will need to get hip with the 21st century,
VW style. Base drop-tops get an AM/FM radio, single slot CD player,
Bluetooth speaker phone/audio streaming and VW's USB/iDevice interface
(MDI). Working your way up the ladder, the next stop is the touchscreen
audio system which adds HD Radio, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and am MP3
compatible CD reader (why is there no 1990s edition?).
You won't find a air-cooled engine in this Beetle, this isn't the '50s.
Base Beetles (and the '50s and '70s edition models) use VW's refreshed 2.5L
inline 5-cylinder engine which gets a 20 HP bump to 170 at 5,700RPM while
torque creeps up to 177 lb-ft at 4,250 RPM. VW mates the 5-banger to a
5-speed manual and for an extra $1,100 you can opt for the 6-speed
automatic. If you need more shove, you can opt for VW's ubiquitous 2.0L turbo, good for 200 ponies and 207 lb-ft of
twist. A first for America (as far as I know), VW's topless cruiser can now
be had in oil-burning form with the same 140 HP 2.0L TDI powerplant as the
Jetta. Both 2.0L mills are mated to VW's slick-shifting 6-speed manual
transmission or for $1,100, VW's latest 6-speed dual-clutch DSG
How well the Beetle accelerates and handles is unlikely to matter to
prospective convertible shoppers. I'm not kidding. There isn't a drop top I
can think of that has better performance metrics than its hard-top donor
car, that's just the nature of the beast. Convertibles are all about open
air motoring and style, something thee Beetle, despite all of its flaws,
still has in spades. VW's infotainment options feel like they are stuck in
1990, the lack of power front seats and automatic climate control irk me to
no end, and the 2.0L engine needs a testosterone injection, yet the
Beetle's topless charm is enough for me to overlook its flaws. There is
only one problem: Herbie's still cute. Go figure.
