I have a 2000 beetle, how do you remove the long plastic shield under the windshield that blocks the top of the struts? tried the search, not very good system.

Remove the little caps from the wipers. Remove the 10mm ( I think) nuts from the wiper arms. Remove the wiper arms (one of those cheap pullers from Auto zone or the like helps alot). Them remove the long rubber gasket from in front of the cowl and it slides down off of the windsheild and off. ( Be carefull of those little cut outs on the cowl they are really sharp. ask me how I know. reverse to reassemble.

Thanks for the reply, already removed wipers, rubber gasket,etc, but plastic will not move. Even tried using a peice of wood and hammer. Maybe glued?
