Hey! Guys Chris again from classicvwbugs.com I am putting together a 56 Ragtop Bug right now and we are getting a ton of e-mails about inside and outside window scrapers on Bugs and how to put them in and what you have to do to install these.
Let me just tell you right off to bug, yes, you could have to break your door down, yes, you could have to take off the door panels and remove the inside window, as you see here. I mean to do this outside window scraper this is attached with the chrome that is basically the very first thing that has to go in with it when it comes to these doors. So you have to basically break everything down and take everything out.
If you have a later model Bug you could even have to take out the vent window because the chrome goes all the way to the underneath the vent windows. So you got to have to take that vent window out as well with the whole post and whatnot.
So when you pop your door panels off you just pop them with like a putty knife or something or screwdriver pull them up. Even put your fingers behind it and try to pull it evenly so you don't snap it and break it. Usually it have a catch here that holds the arm rest, so if you want to pull up on the door panel to take the door panel off. And then remove the window that is inside there and you just could have to take out the nuts and bolts here. Okay and that will take out your window.
So once you have access to that and once you take your window out then you can get your hand in here to start snapping these in. Now when you put these in on the later models you could have a felt channel also that goes up in here that's held in by clips and those clips have ears on and they hook in to the inside door here. Just be careful you don't break those clips off. A lot of times you will want to break them off, so you better off just getting a new set of clips.
But most of time if you can try to save it you have to pull it this way towards the front of the car and those clips should come free and then you tear out that felt channel, so the felt channel look like this and those clips will stick around the perimeter here of the felt channel. So basically here is your outside window scraper. Once the doors is all cleared out, you line it up with a holes and what I want you to do is on these newer outside window scraper, the new clips they look like this. Sometimes they don't fit too well inside the holes here.
So I have saved my old clips from the old window scraper and pop those in. And then basically once you put those on, the old clips on the new scraper, you should be able to pop these in without problems. A lot of times, like I said those new scrapers they don't want to go in the holes and when you press they break.
And then all of a sudden and you got to get a whole new piece because it is all wrapped and buckled, but this is only aluminum really. So once you pop that in, the early models only come to here before the vent window and then they trail all the way up and around and the early models they are held in by screw. So you got up to save the screws that are in the door here. And then just punch a hole when you line up the new one and screw it back in and then you just pop the scraper in.
And once that scraper is in, you basically want to move on to -- then you can put the felt channel in, but I usually do that until I put my vent window in and I have another video on vent window, so you can see that. But that's basically how you put the window scraper in, the outside window scraper. You have to basically tear down your whole door to pop these in, okay. It's a little time consuming; two doors take about a few hours just to do it alone. So have any questions chris@classicVWbugs.com.
