I recently took ownership of a sweet 1966 Java Green bug. Going through the little issues it has, and the drivers inside door release spring return is broken. Iíve searched high and low but havenít found one available in the aftermarket. But I have found some for 1956-1964 and they look similar. Does anyone know if that will work?

Link below is the one Iíve found.

Any advice is appreciated. I did find an original on eBay but Iím concerned about the spring being fatigued or broken.

Not familiar with the 66 but isn't the same as 68 & up? If it is then is this what you are looking for?

It looks like you need 111 837 021 D for the left door lock remote.

No the 66 is the last year of the original dot release. 67 they changed to the more traditional door pulls.

Thank you all. I missed this before. I bought one that did not match and modified it to work but I would love to get a spring for mine and rebuild it.
