Good luck with the concept of finding them all in one place. Some will be very year specific, others color specific. Probably to get everything in one place (except the pink stuff) you'll need to visit your local Dealer or one with an online Parts Department.

You'll find you may want to buy things in many places as online sources can vary by as much as double from part to part. Used parts, priced reasonable, go pretty much as fast as they hit, especially the POS parts you're wanting to replace. eBay is an excellent source, but you may want to save the search, as it may be months before a part happens along. What makes you think the CCM is bad?

As for pink, there are a lot of threads around the Org, what they have, and where they got 'em! Advance thread search "pink". This Orger is selling her NB and removing all the pink accents, I think most are for sale, go here -

well I was hoping someone would have some of this stuff, every part out i see and contact, seems to be vacant.

the ccm.. None of the door locks work,trunk latch, or anything. the car had power windows but they were replaced with manual. Guy she bought it from pretty much jerry rigged alot. Car is a pos, but I know she only care about the small things. haha.

I really need to get up with someone that knows beetles and get some advice.. I say junk it, but she has $$$$ into this thing, and its not going to happen.

There are many of us around here who can help and give you advice. A little more about her Bug is in order. Guessing it's a 2.0L, but year, mileage, etc is in order. Go to the User CP to the left in the purple bar above, and complete some information, to either add this in the top right corner of your post, or put it in your signature.

All the frivolties are nice, but unless the required maintenance is done, items like the timing belt and water pump, she won't have to make a decision as to whether or not to keep the car...

yea bought it for 3500, guy says he he did the pump and belt. My guess is he bought it for super cheap, had an air bag light on, power windows didn't work, so he went the easy way and disabled the air bag light, and threw manual windows in it. Day she got the car it overheated, blah blah, $1500 later timing belt and water pump done. Then it kept overheating, head gasket.. as she was broke I ended up doing that. I didn't get the head leveled, because she had no more money after parts. It leaks anti freeze from somewhere, my guess is the head gasket. Very slow, doesn't smoke..

its a 99 2.0 auto 130k maybe? Its hurt, should have never paid what she did, but it was after I met her, I had no say but I kinda knew the guy or at least knew who he is. I didn't think he would sell some pos, either him or the shop that did the $1500 timing belt job is a liar. I came into the picture after that shop "fixed" it. This car has been hell.

Finally got it running ok.. just want to clean it up and get all the pieces.

Do you see any actual drips of coolant? Lots of places it could be leaking from. I think getting the car mechanically sound is a really good idea. Fix the coolant leak.

As for the blank plates, not sure if they make them. My car had crank windows and there was nothing there at all where the power window switches are in other cars.

This is what manual window cars look like for the door panel:

No slot or anything for the power window. Never seen a blank plate for them. They make them but you may have to fab up something yourself. Or buy door panels from a car with crank windows already.

Good visual, SB! Maybe get some old switches, paint them to match the door panel, and put them back in the holes. Or as said, fabricate something. Likelyhood of finding something off a shelf, zero. Or as also suggested, find a set of manual window door panels. How are the interior door pulls on her's, panels starting to crack at each end where the pull meets the panel, or the pulls themselves broken? Sounds as if the car was pretty well abused by a PO.

yea the panels look like that, but the hole is under the hvac controls. there is the defrost, e-flashers,and whatever was supposed to go on the left corner. the right corner is a blank figured the left is the same concept?

You had us confused, that IS a blank (or probably was). I just saw one on eBay. Those blanks are probably where the seat heater switches go if the car were so equipped. We thought you were looking for filler blanks for the electric door switches that were removed from the door panels. What made you think the car originally had pwr windows?

I was told by a vw specialist we brought it to to get the window up. That's when I realized you cant take the door panel off unless the window was up, and it was stuck down pretty good. haha.

I would buy all that pink stuff from that girl, but the beetle is blue.. I think it will clash real bad haha. I think im going to paint it all blue, and so a headliner of some sort.

Does the car have fogs or a sunroof? If not, it its a GL trim level and came with crank windows.

And MORAV is right. What you are talking about in the center dash have nothing to do with the windows. There are tabs on those blanks that break and they fall off. I broke a tab on one of the blanks in my car and if I hit it by accident it would fall off. You should be able to get one of those easily though, if nothing else from a partout.
