Air-Cooled VW Beetle Transmission Replacement
In Bug Me Video -Volume 5 Transmission Replacement (full 60 minute video
available at www.mamotorworks.com part #323-305) we show how to remove and
replace both the older swing axle transmission and the newer and easier
I.R.S. (Independent Rear Suspension) transmission. Since used and rebuilt
Transmissions are still readily available for the VW at Prices that are
barely more than the cost of the parts to rebuild them, we are producing
this video to show how to exchange your transmission. Later in the series
we will get inside to show you how to replace all those worn gears and
bearings. Since there are three different axle and tube set-ups in the old
types, we show you how to change the axles to suit your car. We also show
how to replace the rear axle bearings and grease seals, axle boots, and
even the front shift housing. As always we take you step by step with lots
of clear pictures and close-ups so you will know exactly what to do from
start to finish.
One Hour of easy to follow instruction including:
■Swing Axles & IRS
■Rear Axle Bearing
