Nothing is guaranteed.
Nothing more unpredictable as Western European weather.

One hour nice and warm, next raining and windy.
We've seen it all this summer, or was it just this week?

The only good thing about unpredictable weather?
Perfect garage time!

Wrench that VW beauty, finish that project!
And when the weather allows, take it for a spin.

BBT parts are here to help.
Welcome to BBT NEWS.
Bay window front brake hoses hold in place by this bracket.
Sits under the nut from the upper Ball Joint.

Ball Joints for bay window bus HERE
On the front of your frame head, you have an inspection cover.
The inspection cover covers the hole to remove your shift rod.

We add the gasket for the Type 3 inspection cover today.
For the Beetle inspection cover, you can find the gasket HERE

Sealing your frame head inspection cover is very important to keep water and dust out of your tunnel.
These two self-adhesive foam gaskets sit on the shut off valves from your 1968 and later beetle fresh airbox.
Only for non-blower fresh air boxes. 

The foam gaskets help the shut off valves to control fresh air flows to your dashboard.
When foam gaskets are missing, or worn-out, fresh air keeps on blowing out of your dashboard.
We do carry self-locking spindle nuts for early beetles HERE
We add now self-locking spindle nuts for 63-67 Split window bus. 

These self-locking spindle nuts replace the double-nut & thrust-washer system.
Perfect for a more accurate and easier front wheel bearing adjustment. 

Comes in one pair, one for the left and one for the right side.
Our entire spindle nut family HERE
BBT NEWS team wish you a cool "wrenching" weekend.

European Bug In was a blast.
Last weekend the quaint town of Chimay was simply invaded by classic Volkswagens.

Grandstand filled up completely several times to watch the races.
BBT booth ran full force whole weekend long.

Despite the (heavy) rains on Saturday evening it was a top edition!
Another proof Classic Volkswagen scene is alive and kicking.

More motivation to bring you more and better parts.
Welcome to the BBT.


We made the rear wheel bearing carrier for big nut split window bus transmissions.

While we used to offer each, we change now to sets of eight pieces.

As you need all eight for one engine anyway.
One quantity gives you eight nuts.

Easier to order, easier for the factory to pack.
These collared connecting rod nuts are authentic in every detail.

Exactly like original. Made in Germany.
New sharp pricing.
