In Belgium a school collapsed, in Florida an apartment complex.
European parliament (and most citizens) are all upside down over the new LGBT law from Hungary.

A new hardliner and very conservative was “elected” as new president of Iran.
Plenty headlines during last week to think about.

But the real shocking News you may find here below, as we have another nice load of new products for our beloved Volkswagens to introduce.
Welcome to the BBT News…


Let’s kick off this week with a brand new BBT production “Made in Belgium”
This little lock spring has several applications.

It fix the accelerator pedal to its push rod on your Beetle, Ghia, Type 3 and/or Bus.
On all upright Type 1 engines it holds the connecting rods on the cooling air regulators in your fan housing.

It also mounts your heater cables to the fresh air and heater levers in the dash board of your Bay window.
It might have other applications as well as it’s just a handy cool lock spring You can use to fix anything that need to be well fixed, but can’t have play in order not to rattle.

We sell them each and because of the quantity we have produced on full CNC machines we can offer at real bargain prices, check especially our quantity break downs.
