Volkswagen Official Service Manual for Super Beetles, Beetles & Karmann Ghias, 1970 through 1979.

The aim throughout has been simplicity, clarity and completeness, with practical explanations, step-by-step procedures, and accurate specifications.

Though the do-it-yourself Volkswagen owner will find this manual indispensable as a source of detailed maintenance and repair information, the Volkswagen owner who has no intention of working on his or her car will find that reading and owning this manual will make it possible to discuss repairs more intelligently with a professional technician.

This Volkswagen Type-1 Official Service Manual covers the Beetles, Super Beetles, VW Convertibles and Karmann Ghias for the model years 1970 through 1979. This manual was created specifically to cover models built for sale in the United States and Canada. Below is a sample list of the kind of up-to-date information you will find:
  • Tune-up and oil change: specifications and procedures for all models, up through the latest 1979 cars.
  • Troubleshooting, replacing or repairing every component of the electrical system - with complete wiring diagrams.
  • Troubleshooting and repair of the electronic fuel ignition system used on 1975 and later models.
  • Troubleshooting, repairing and rebuilding the clutch, manual transmission and Automatic Stick Shift.

  • Rebuilding disc and drum brakes
  • Rebuilding the front axle and steering gearbox.
  • Strut front suspension for the Super Beetle and Convertible - including the suspension modifications of 1974 through 1979 models, and the rack and pinion steering of 1975 and later models.
