  1. How to remove "crease" from tonneau/boot cover?

    New Beetle Convertible
    I have a tonneau / boot cover for my 2006 Beetle convertible and never used it. I kept it folded up and sealed inside a plastic bag. I got it out today and it had a crease on one side where it was folded for so long. Dumb move, I know. Does anyone know how to remove the crease, or if it's...

    New Beetle Convertible
    First post but I've been stalking the threads for a long time to trouble shoot, everyone has been very knowledgable. For a 2006 NBC 2.5 I have not been able to find any videos or reviews of someone painting the rocker, or what may be the best way. I was thinking I could pull the rear passenger...

I understand that this would require removal of the soft top frame etc and may ven require a semi / roadster conversion...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I think Ringo (My NBC) might actually be resisting the idea of having an infant car seat put in his back seat:confused: but I really need to find one that fits because we cannot afford to buy a bigger family car right now. :( (And I promised Ringo when I bought him that he would always have a...
