does anyone know where I could get a heater unit for my '74 super beetle.
I need to defrost the windshield, to drive it on cold days.I see other ones driving around,so there has to be something out there.
I'm kinda new to the bug world,so any help is good help!!!

Everybody else has a rag stuffed into the passenger side S.O.L. handle. For the serious enthusiast there is the deluxe squeegee. Appropriately sized of course.

Have you got heat at the dash vents, or anywhere at all? Many times the ducting and heat flaps and cables need to be looked at. Rust will not help you here.

I always use a hand towel, leave the windows open, and make sure you are either wearing a hoodie with the hood up or a torque.
I think that is the Canadian way.

Nuttin beats using a ice scrapper on the outside and inside of your windshield in the winter.

Like it was mentioned above - check for air ducts in the dash of the super.
You could jimmy up a 12v heater w ducts to those vents if they are not getting air flow.

I have a lil ceramic 12v in my 65' and I have it on a clip mount...I remove it and prop it up in my ash tray to let the air blow at the winshield....kinda handy....kinda lame...but it works when I am too lazy to use my micro squeegie.
