Are your New Beetle's inside door handles loose?  Do your door panels have small cracks in them? Most New Beetles have already suffered from a cracked or broken inside door pull but we have the solution, the Beetlebrace kit. Fix your inside door handle in a jiffy with our innovative repair kit. Even if your handle is cracked all of the way through, the Beetlebrace makes your door handle as firm as new and maintains your stock handle's appearance once the trim cover is popped back on! We suggest buying two Beetlebraces so you can fix both doors. Free FedEx 2nd Day shipping on two if you are in the US!

US shipping: Get free FedEx 2nd day shipping if you buy two! We offer and highly recommend FedEx 2 Day shipping on this item if you are in any sort of hurry to get it.  Slower US Postal Service shipping is around $3.00.  We ship Monday through Friday from Colorado except on holidays. 

International shipping:  In these uncertain times we offer the slightly more expensive but much faster FedEx International Economy® service. FedEx will likely collect local taxes upon delivery. USPS shipping is currently suspended due to USPS system backlogs.  Also, for Canada, the new USMCA trade agreement will reduce taxes and duties on this item.

Great Product !!!

I've glued the top of the driver's side door handle on my 2002 New Beetle TDI many times. It finally gave way on the top and bottom. The repair straps work great and are easy to install. I fixed the driver's door handle and also put a strap on the passenger side door to prevent it from breaking in the future.

Perfect Fit

This worked perfectly. And the videos on the installation are excellent. 5 stars.

Great Fix!

Great, easy fix! Works well on my 15 year old New Beetle. Saved buying a replacement door panel.

Great product!

As the title says. Easy to install, works perfectly. Now if only I’d known to do this *before* my handle cracked. Thanks, Diesel Geeks!

Great Door Handle Repair Kit!

Purchased the BeetleBrace kit for both doors for my daughter’s 07 New Beetle Convertible. The kit is great! Very easy to install, very sturdy...$65 for both doors is very reasonable considering the cost of replacing the door panels. Watch their install videos and you will have no problems...Thanks DieselGeek!
