Common Problems Your Volkswagen Beetle Carpet Kit May Encounter
Be it a classic or a modern VW bug, there's nothing like installing a new carpet kit. It adds a different element to the already great interior of an already classic car. Time becomes an enemy because they can wreak havoc on carpets made from cloth-like material. Over time a carpet can fade away, losing its color or its sheen. Here are some of the problems you can expect to deal with about your carpet:
Faded and shredded carpets
VW bugs are a classic that is better bought old. However, you might get stuck with a really old bug bought from a careless owner. You should expect to see some pretty disappointing things in the interior of this car, especially when it comes to upholstery. Its seat covers and carpets may have gone through some serious damage in the past. Damages include the carpets being faded and worn and torn to the point of shredding. You should replace carpets in this condition as soon as you can.
Carpets can withstand being stepped and jumped upon. However, there are companies that could have built sub-standard carpets that won't last even a month. If you have this sort of problem on your bug, you should consider changing your carpet. Your bug's carpet should last a year or so but if it starts being pulled out even by light vacuuming, you should seriously consider trading in your carpet for better ones.
Burn holes and marks
This cannot be avoided on a bug or any other car. Sometimes people have the tendency to become too careless in a car. They could litter your car with lit cigarette butts or have drinks that spill out while moving. This leaves a mark to your otherwise lovely carpet. You should watch out for cigarette butts; they could become the cause of fire if not put out. They could cause a greater damage than just burn marks on your carpet. You should also consider cleaning your interior if you notice a few spills.
