Ok, so you think that your ’67 Beetle has all of the specific ’67 one year only parts? Think again. Open your engine lid and look up at the engine lid latch. Is there a rubber dust cover over the latch? Chances are, there isn’t.
This protective cover was prone to cracking in the center which leads it to eventually falling off never to be seen again. It took me a while to track one down but they are out there. I put a drop of a high temp adhesive on mine to hold it in place.
Now here is some good news. The part number 211 827 261A, which was used on later Type II’s is an exact match. You can find it here.
So that’s my good VW deed for the day. Happy ’67 motoring.
