Make sure the wires going to that fuse are connected properly. If you can, try and follow them and make sure there are not cuts or breaks in the line. The next thing to try is find where the ground is to your wires, and see if they are getting ground properly. You can try this but turning on the ignition, loosening the ground and lightly touch them to metal and see if they spark. If so, there is power going to the head lights. Then try the light bulbs. (They can be a pain sometimes trying to get the whole light assmebly out but make sure the bulb is good and make sure the connections are good. If not that, try the switch located on the dash and test that to see if power is going there. That is all the major possibilties I can think of. Good luck.

The 1975 regular Beetle windshield will fit the 1971 Super Beetle.

If you look at the front suspension of any beetle you can tell if it is a super or non-super beetle. If there is a McPherson front suspension then it is a super beetle. If there is a torsion bar front suspension then it is a non-super beetle.

The super beetle was not put into production until 1971, there is no such vehicle as a 1964 super beetle.

A Super Beetle with a manual transmission has four forward gears and one reverse. A Super Beetle with an Autostick transmission has three forward and one reverse.

The super beetle has a different front end, having Macpherson struts. The apron, fenders and hood are styled different. The standard beetle has the torsion bar front end.

Yes. A 1963 super beetle with a pearl coat (many mistakenly think it's white). The super beetle was a body type that was slightly larger than a regular beetle body.

No. It may transform into a beetle, but the reptile should still be able to eat it.

The biggest difference is the 74 has energy absorbing bumpers that the 73 is lacking.

Hardtop Super Beetles were made between 1971 and 1975. For the 1976 to 1979 model years, the Beetle convertibles were based on the Super.

No, the hood will not fit. 1965 is pre-Super Beetle; 1973 is post Super Beetle. The 65 hood is going to be much more narrow and arched then a Super Beetle hood or anything past their early transitions to the Super beetle which started to transpire in June of 1971

Yes. Look at the first three digits: 114: Standard Beetle 134: Super Beetle There are five other ways to tell. a. Windshield. Flat windshield: Standard Beetle Curved windshield: Super Beetle b. Dashboard. Dashboard made of steel, flat and straight up-and-down below the windshield: Standard Beetle Padded dashboard that looks a little like one from a modern car: Super Beetle c. Front shocks. Just the shock: Standard Beetle Shock inside huge coil spring: Super Beetle d. Front apron - the piece of sheet metal below the front lip of the trunk lid No vent slots: Standard Beetle Vent slots: Super Beetle (Having said that, when Supers were still being made, some of the aftermarket body-parts companies made slot-free Super Beetle aprons. Since the slots don't do anything anyway, why not?) e. Spare tire Spare tire standing up in the trunk: Standard Beetle Spare tire lying flat in a tire well: Super Beetle

The Super Beetle has a slightly longer body (front end) and more modern McPherson front suspension instead of the torsion tube type.

There are a few things to look at, look at the windshield first, in a super beetle it will be curved, also on a super beetle if you look at the front suspension you will see struts (springs instead of shocks) and if you open the hood you will see a circular depression for the spare tire to lay down, and the last way to tell is to look at that dashboard, a super beetle has a dashboard that is big enough to throw a pack of cigarettes on to whereas a standard bug has no dashboard.Actually, in a 1971 and 1972 beetle you can get a super beetle with a flat window and a flat dash. I own a 1971 Super beetle. It looks like a standard beetle in every way but it is slightly larger. The only way to tell is by looking for a spare tire that lays flat (only true in the Super) and the suspension. I suggest looking at the spare. If it is angled vertically it is standard - laying flat means it's a super.

There was no 1969 "super beetle" only the standard. And which line are you replacing the hard line or the flex line?
