How to Pop the Hood on the VW Bug

by Baptist Johnson

The Volkswagen Type 1 is an economy car manufactured by Volkswagen (VW), a German car company. In American, the Type 1 is commonly known by its nickname, the Beetle or Bug. Popping the hood on a VW Bug is tricky, but anyone can do it.

Step 1

Park your VW Bug in a safe location. Look down by your left leg for a vertical lever marked "Hood Release." Pull the bottom of the lever up as far as it will go.

Step 2

Go around to the front of the car. You should notice a T-shaped tab sticking out from the center of your hood.

Step 3

Grasp the tab and pull it towards you; at the same time, lift upward on the hood.
