FAQ 49

Question: Both the lights on my speedometer are not working and I'm wondering how to go about fixing them. I have John Muir's book but I have not found a section on repairing the lights themselves. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Answer: This is a pretty easy repair. The light sockets pull out of the speedo housing. Just wiggle. The light socket comes out with the wire connection all as one piece. You can remove the wire first.

The bulbs are not that common. I generally order them when I'm ordering other Bug parts. It is worth a couple of local phone calls you see if you can find them at part suppliers in your area.

Otherwise try one of the suppliers on my Parts page:
