Clutch Tube Fix Solution Chassis Inspection Plate   Price: See Ad
Classic Volkswagen Chassis Parts | Airkewld

A few tweaks here or there could be the difference when upgrading some simple chassis components on your Type 1. - by Pete Skiba - PRO since 2002 | Airkewld.com | Updated on 6/3/23

The number of questionable decisions made when repairing a Classic Volkswagen is staggering.

Chassis Inspection Plate: A remedy recommended for many Classic Volkswagen's is the clutch tube coming loose from the stationary bracket inside the chassis tunnel. For years, the hole saw, air chisel, was used to cut open the chassis and hose clamp or zip tie the tube back to the bracket. Now, you can fix it correctly with the Chassis Inspection Plate Kit. Cutting and welding are needed to do this job perfectly.

Can this kit be used in multiple places on the chassis? Yes, but the panel's curvature will be different in different locations.
By cutting this hole, does this weaken my chassis if I get into an accident? If you get into an accident, are you worried about the chassis at that point? The short answer is No. Have we crumple-zone tested this to give you that kind of answer? No.
