On Beetles from '49 through '74, that metal shroud in the very

rear of the engine has a fan in it, driven by the generator, which

of course is driven by the belt in the front of the engine. As the

fan turns, it drives air through the ducts on either side, and

cools the engine. It also pushes air through the heater boxes that

heat the cab of the car.
