Good question. I'm wondering the same. Does the sticky stuff resurface? If not, you've found the miracle cure.So the sticky grey and blak interior can be fixed with rubbing alcohol? Does it come back over time?
The dealership said its a know issue with beetles between certain years. The material the manufacturer used breaks down over time and becomes sticky. They havent done a recall and there's never been a class action lawsuit, which is still amazing to my they haven't done anything about it
