Herbie is sick, Herbie is dying, but he can be resurrected with a little help.

You see, I had a non Vee Dubbie mechanic install a new clutch, but first doesnt work. It clunk clunks and shudders and makes a dreadful sound, pops out and misbehaves. All other gears work beautifully. He proceeded to say he didnt know what the problem is, and that I would have to talk to someone who knows more about the Dubs.

His battery is dead (although it isnt old, but just because he has been sick for so long hes lost his will to live and just needs a little revving up), and he needs one tyre pumped up and a little light in the back break replaced. His breaks are adjusted fine though.

I cant do it myself. I need help! I need to get my licence before August, because (heres the kicker) Im up the duff, and I bought Herbie to practice in, but since his clutch went cactus, I havent had any practice at all. I have had him almost 2 years and have driven him only a handful of times.

I am willing to swap home cooked meals, money for labour (but I dont have too much of that), icy cold drinks and even tutoring for the kids (I am a teacher of Junior Science and German)...

PLEASE can someone help??? I would have acted sooner but I only just came across this site, and didnt have the money to get the car towed, buy any new parts and also pay another mechanic to start from scratch!

I need to get mobile ASAP, I want to go for my licence before the end of April.

I also live on the northside of Brisbane and I have just joined this forum. last week i purchased a 1968 semi auto Beetle. I will need a plethora of parts to begin the lengthy restoration process (who doesn't) - I was told from the VW auto register forum that you may specialise in auto parts ? At this stage the car is not running because it is missing the generator, pulley, strap and fan. there are a few other bits and pieces that i need, but they are cosmetic only. Any chances you may help me ?
