Admin note – An older tutorial put together by ’67 Beetle enthusiast Marius Strom, I figured it was worth another mention. This seems to be a popular topic in my inbox over the last few weeks.
Are you able to reliably lock and unlock your ’67 with the key from the outside? Do you ever feel like you’re going to twist the key off when you use your door locks? If so, your guide pin in your locking mechanism is probably broken.
Fixing them is pretty simple, and worthwhile — the door handles on a ’67 Beetle are one-year-only, and while you find a few on eBay or TheSamba’s classifieds, it’s worth rebuilding yours – it’s only a couple of bucks.
