This weekend, I decided how to learn how to do a simple job on the beetle – how to change the oil. To my knowledge, the oil hadn’t been changed on the bug for awhile, and I could easily tell by the color of the black oil it had on the engine dipstick. Turns out the job isn’t as bad as I taught it would be. Just a few bolts to undo and out comes the stream of dirty oil, yay! Peter, my mentor, mentioned that I had to drain the oil in order to successfully take out the engine. Hopefully in the next few days, we’ll begin that process. In the mean time, I need to start taking out the main wiring loom of the car as the final process of gutting the car.
