Part can be bought from the part store for about $150. I found the part on e-bay new for about $50. I would imagine a dealership would charge close to $300 or better repair.

You should buy the Bentley manual as the ignition switches have changed over the years.

The ignition switch should be separate from the ignition key/lock assembly, so I'll say no.

A quick fix for a fuel filler door on a new Beetle automobile is to use a paperclip where the hinge should be. If the door is completely broken off, a new door should be purchased.

THere usually isn't an ignition on an oven. You should have a pilot that's lit. If not you need to get an appliance repair man or a plubmer to fix your gas.

OMG!! This is SUCH an easy thing to do - do it yourself. The part costs between $20 and $30 and depending on which one you need to replace can take as little as 10 minutes. I paid over $300 to replace ONE last year and then found out during a spark plug change how easy it was (they sit right on top of the plugs) and I could just KICK myself....

EJ48315: 1. Remove the four screws out of the back of the steering wheel and pull off the front cover / airbag assembly. 2. After removing the nut / washer / sleeve use a steering wheel puller to remove the hub. 3. Remove the turn signal assembly, should be 2 screws this will expose the ignition. 4. Remove the screw that goes through the backside of the ignition and the ignition should come right out.

A local TV repair service facility should be able to take care of this for you.

You should buy a new VW Beetle (Mexican 1977-1998) but you should not buy a VW New Beetle. They are the most difficult cars to work on, but they are very cute!!

you can repair cv joints if you have the right tools and knowledge, if not it would be better and less aggrivating if you had the job preformed by a licensed mechanic, this way you should have a guarantee and no guess work.

no, but you have to remove the complete assembly. There is a clip on the assembly inside the engine compartment - undo the clip and there is a tab that you push up and you should be able to feel the assembly move - sometimes you have to pry the outside of the headlight with a screwdriver and the whole thing slides out. Unplug the harness and open the back plastice and the bulb is there.

If you take the assembly out, there'll be a slot in that assembly where you can insert a pick or other small tool, and that should release the tumbler. It'll come right out once you've done that.

You should change the key cylinder, it is available from most auto parts stores. The new cylinder will come with a new set of keys and they you'll be fine. Changing the cylinder isn't too hard, I managed it in about an hour when I was 15, you should likely also get a repair manual for the car as it will aid you with diagrams and steps for dis-assembly.

what should be included in a repair estimate

I'm told this is a common problem that Chevrolet is aware of. Contact your local dealer. They should be able to replace the ignition switch and charge it back to Chevrolet as a warranty repair.

I think you should be more concerned with a beetle who can teach you to speak English properly.

Remove the plastic cover to access the assembly that holds the ignition tumbler. Then find a hole offset but underneath the tumbler on the same assembly. Stick a firm thin pin of some sort into the hole and press the release pin. It should slide out easily.

get a chiltons repair manual from the library or autozone sells a small version in paperback that should show you.

Most likely the Ignition Switch. Honda issued a recall on this so if you haven't gotten the recall repair it should be free

On my 73 super beetle it is about 2100.Yours should be pretty close to that.

They should interchange, the doors are identical and the hinges are the same.

User Avatar

go buy a universal ignition key for it or replace the ignition switch, or lastly, replace the switch with a simple toggle switch. there should be some type of repair shop in your town, right? or do it the old fashioned way, hotwire the darn thing :)

It should have electronic ignition.
