July 2015


What a season! I’m writing this preface  between two gigantic meetings : Bad Camberg and European Bug In.  With a big smile on my face, as Volkswagen is my thing!

It was fantastic to meet so many people at our Open House (just before Bad Camberg) of so many different nationalities, from  a lot of different continents and different ages, Volkswagen is a perfect hobby from 7 till 97 years and even older!

The summer season is in full swing and the ambience is great…. The VW industry is going at full speed.  Isn’t that enough reason to be in a positive mood ? Although the weather in Western Europe might get better….

The  question is of Greece stays whatsoever in the Euro zone and which consequences  that might have on the stock exchange.  By the time you’ll be reading this text the effects  will be known… In my opinion a grexit has already been calculated for a long time, definitely in the matter of exchange rates.  So the ‘damage’ will be rather restricted.  Afterwards the markets will stabilize again. Let’s wait if I’ll be right. If Greece will concede after all, the same scenario will appear… it’s a fact that Europe will show it’s colors, a gesture that many analysts and investors are waiting for…so after all it will turn out well …

Much worse is the human suffering, boat refugees or people running for IS terror.  We shouldn’t worry about it, but though we must open our heart for so much suffering and misery, why has is to be this way ? And how must it go on ? Is it necessary that one part of the world will be cut off  from the rest ?

Perhaps we aren’t aware that we live in  a good part of the world.  We have a job and earn our living, we have hobbies such as maintaining Volkswagens, everything in a pleasant environment… I have no idea why the financial world has a problem with Greece ( a country with just a handful of inhabitants) comparing to the human suffering in the world, but it will be always that way…

In this newsletter you’ll find a large package of new products in our assortment.  Price modifications turn out better than previous time (fortunately the dollar is more stable).

We are doing our outmost to forward all orders as fast as possible, pallets should be ready for dispatch within 48 hours, in between packets should leave the very same day for orders made before 11 am.  Within the company we’ve been tinkering with the work flow…. We should expect results soonest, because we like to write our Service with a capital as always!

A splendid summer and see you on one of the next VW events ?

Engine lid lock

0428-100   Bus 03/55-07/65
261 801 505

The Type 2 03/55-07/65 engine lock mechanism requires regularly maintenance to ensure long lasting functionality. This lock mechanisme suffers a lot due to its mounting possition in the engine bay where it can be contaminated by oil residues, emission, dust, dirt... These elements accelerate the wear process and due to this process the inner lock can become blocked and damaged. Second hand ones are hard to get due to limited supplies and therefore BBT has been searching for a decent replacement solution. From now one we can offer you a decent reproduction unit, sold each, from our shelves.

License light lens assembly rubber boot, each

7469-200   Bus 04/58-07/67
211 943 165

This protection rubber can be found at the inner side of the Type 2 08/58-07-67 engine lid if it isn't yet hardened and/or torn due to harmful influences from oil residues and temperature fluctuations. The importancy of this seal can't be ignored, to protect the inner license light contacts and lens. From now on BBT can offer you a decent replacement rubber available per piece from our shelves.

License light rubber, each

7569-000   Bus 08/71-08/79
211 943 131D

The protective license light lens on a Type 2 08/71-07/79 has been mounted from the outer side on the engine lid and to prevent dust and water to infiltrate into the license light mechanism, a rubber seal has been placed underneath the light lens. This rubber seal has been cracked and damaged on many Buses that already offer long duty and by dismantling the license light lens, the rubber seal gets irrevocable damaged and can't be used again. A replacement is the only solution to solve this and BBT is more than pleased to be able to supply a decent reproduction license light seal each from stock.
