    New Beetle Convertible
    OK. So, I've read a LOT of forums about convertible tops peeling off the back glass window of New Beetle Convertibles (our is an '05). There are posts that say it's repairable and offer simple gluing techniques. Other posts say it's repairable, and offer fairly complicated and involved...

  17. Convertible Rear window

    New Beetle Convertible
    I have a 2008 beetle convertible. When I put the roof down, all windows drop a little to allow the roof to go down. All windows will go down independently or with the "all windows" button, but the nearside rear window won't come up on its own. The other 3 windows come up independently, and all...
