Wow Covid wave n°4 hit us hard in Belgium.
Back again to homework, facemask duty and all kind of other restrictions.
Meanwhile the world keeps spinning around and BBT… is boosting new parts.
Welcome to our weekly News….
Let’s kick off this News in Vintage style.
The early beetle and bus armrests are a wonderful world of changes.
We decided to climb into to this magical tree of different models again and add these real early armrest that fits beetles built between 1955 and 1959 and early buses built between 1955 and 1958.
Perfect quality and fit.
Exactly like original.
Offcourse we supply also the trim for this armrest separately.
This trim will also replace your original trim.
For Bay Window we add this week this spacer sleeve bushing for your brake pedal.
Bay window Westfalia lovers this one is for you!
After many many demands we finally found a replacement for your faucet.
We know it’s not the same, but at least it does the job.
Made in Stainless Steel it pours water trouble-free to let you enjoy brewing your own coffee “from the tap”…
Cook the water first though….:)
Comes with switch, no pump!
Perfect for all bay window Westfalia’s with sink.
As out of popularity of our standard 12-1300 beetle eco-version steering damper we decided to bring also an eco-version steering damper for the 1302-03 Super beetle models.
In general we get really good feedback from this steering dampers so they’re Eco in price, but still a very decent quality.
Goods In dept are bursting!
Many orders came in, and many backorders are filled in now.
A small extraction what came back in stock this week.
All split window bus cab doors in stock now!
This high quality relay is exclusively made for BBT – the wiper relay controls intermittent speeds by energising a particular circuit at a given moment depending on what speed you have your wiper switch set to.
BBT spent a very long time developing this important part to ensure a proper working wiper mech.
Manufactured exactly like the original and available off the shelve at BBT.
Next up is this rubber mount for the fresh air fan.
When your beetle is due for a big service, we recommend inspecting these rubbers as over time they can wear out and eventually fail or create a rattling noise.
You’ll need 3 should you wish to replace all of them.
These are exact copies manufactured from NOS!
For our last shout out we stay within the super Beetle assortment.
This rubber bump stop keeps the strut from bottoming out.
Installing can potentially be tough and we suggest this job is done by an experienced mechanic with adequate tools.
This one is for the post 07/73 1303 beetle, if you need pre 07/73 bump stops please use BBT ref 1314-100.
Ok one more highlight this week…
This rubber cap sits just above the ball joint of your tie rod end and serves the very important task to keep dirt & moist out.
Tie rod ends are always moving around and depending on your driving style they’re either used or well abused.
As such this boot can wear more quickly or if not installed properly may split which in turn will leave the joint exposed to all kinds of debris.
This will cause rapid wear and eventually the tie rod end will fail and have too much play.
These are exact copies, just like the original used on early beetles (-02/60), buses (-07/60) en ghia’s (-02/60).
Another great quality BBT part.
