Bundle Deal, Euro Trip Definitive Engine Spares Kit, 1200-1600cc, Bug / Ghia / Bus 60-79
So you've serviced your VW, made all the preparations that you could possibly make... But there's still the worry that something will go wrong on your road trip.
We've all been there; whether you're driving your VW bus across Europe, excited for Mediterranean beaches in Italy, or road tripping in your Beetle; you always have that niggle in the back of your mind anticipating something might go wrong.
Well, we've done a few of those road trips ourselves - And tend to go with the philosophy that the more prepared you go, the better. Best case scenario, you're handy with the spanners and can fix the problem with the parts in this kit; or worst case scenario, you need to call for breakdown assistance - But what recovery drivers are going to have components for a 50+ year old VW? With this kit, you're going to have all the essentials that you might otherwise struggle to find at a time of need.
This kit of parts has been compiled based on what we would take with us on a long-distance road trip, and years of experience of what parts will leave you stranded.
You might think some of the parts are overkill; but having things like a complete distributor to drop in to help solve a problem at the side of the road can be less fiddly than replacing points and condensers - Getting you out of danger quicker and back on the road faster.
Designed to be a catch-all for pretty much all aircooled 1200-1600cc based Type-1 engines, this kit will keep you out of trouble and ensure your holiday isn't cut short.
Parts we would recommend purchasing on top of this kit; but are too specific to include:
