Works as described April 21, 2017
Reviewer: AmyMc from Sylacauga, Alabama, USA  
Good secure fit. I didn't realize I would have to modify the original handle though. I don't have the tools for that (yet.)  That's the only disappointment though.

Beetlebrace is a money saver!!! September 8, 2016
Reviewer: Troy from South Carolina  
If you found this site you already know the trouble these beetles have with brittle interior parts.  I can say that the Beetlebrace is a high quality fix.  I bought two.  The driver side broke which prompted the search and I replaced the passenger side as a preventative measure.

Solid door handles. June 29, 2016
Reviewer: J.D. from Reno, Nevada  
These are engineered VERY well.  It's a simple design that really makes the handle solid.  It now feels like the handle is part of the door.

Reviewer: Rob  
VW engineers would be proud to have designed the door-pull handle this way; in fact they probably did.  easy!

beetle brace June 22, 2016
Reviewer: stacey mccoy from bloomfield iowa  
Worked as advertised.  Had ro do a lot of grinding/finese of door handle cover.  Most tabs were broken off so ended up having to jb weld the wholenthing back together.  Solid repair.  Its never coming off again.  Again this is a great repair option.
