U channels sitting in your vent wing frame on your beetle sedan where your door roll up window slides should be 9mm wide up to 1964.
For 1965 and later beetle sedans this widens here up to 11mm.

Convertible beetles always used the 9mm wide profile from 1952 up to end of production.
For years we do supply these channels in a nice decent German made quality.

We add now the correct length for the early beetle sedan now to avoid waste.

BBT # 0349-050 is 580 mm long and 9mm wide for Beetle sedan 52-64
BBT # 0349-1 is 580mm long and 11mm wide for Beetle sedan 65-
BBT # 7034 is 800mm long and 9mm wide for Beetle convertible all years.
