I was reading a reply you left about opening the hood of a 98 nb. You mentioned that you knew how to get the hood open if the hood came open but the secondary safety latch would not open. My email is [email protected] if you could help. Thanks, Ken

Question for you regarding the cylinder head installation on your 2.0 Beetle. Did you use guide pins? If not, what did you do to ensure the new head was aligned correctly. I'm doing valve seals and one valve dropped into the cylinder, so I need to take the head off.
