Beetle Convertible Top Install Guide
Fully Covers Original 1960-1972 VW Beetle Convertible Top Removal and Installation

This easy-to-read 46-page top install guide offers step-by-step instructions on the removal and installation of your Beetle convertible top, headliner, pads, rear window, and top seals. It's the equivalent of 10 videos in one compact book! We highly recommend this guide to all do-it-yourselfers.

Note for 73 and later convertibles: This booklet will be incomplete primarily at the front bow which was changed to steel instead of wood in 1973. However we feel that this booklet in conjunction with observations made during removal of the 73 and later convertible top is the best convertible top installation guide available.

Part #: BF-10
Our "TOPPAK" Beetle or Super Beetle convertible top package consists of the following:

  • Premium quality VW Beetle (or Super Beetle) convertible top,
  • All of the required convertible top attachment cables,
  • The convertible top padding set,
  • Original fabric convertible headliner,
  • The set of six convertible top frame roof-rail rubber seals,
  • The convertible top to windshield seal
  • The 24 page Volkwwagen convertible top and headliner installation booklet.

This convertible top restoration package contains all of the parts (besides the wood bows) that should be "on hand" for a complete top restoration (until the end of the job when the rear window is installed.)

We urge you to look at or convertible top rear window restoration tip on this page. But also please visit our convertible top rear window page to look at parts etc. for restoring or replacing the convertible rear window.

Your Beetle convertible wood top bows should be evaluated after the old convertible top is removed from the top frame.

Other parts that may be needed such as rubber wedges, hinge covers, bow cover plates, etc. can be obtained after the TOPPAK convertible package parts are installed.

We recommend the "TOPPAK" for any full Beetle convertible top restoration.

However, if it is known that the headliner and padding will be re-used, from the existing top, then just the convertible top and the top hold down cables may be purchased.

We would be happy to configure a Beetle convertible top package to your own needs. If the convertible top packages on this page do not suit your purposes, please either fax or email us a list of the parts you need for your own convertible top restoration.
