This front left replacement VW Beetle Floor Pan patch is used to replace a rusted out, damaged or cankered floor pan section. This pan roughly covers from the front fire wall to just before
the seat rails. The floor pan patch is not an exact pressing of the original floor pan. The pedal pressing may have to be massaged into shape and if you intend on unbolting the original floor
pan to replace the section at the body, the holes at the body may have to be re-drilled. Full pan halves should be used in these instances. Great for use where snow/water has caused rust by
pedals! Although the manufacture considers this a "half" pan, please note it covers approx 30 percent of the entire floor pan. A front "half" and a rear "half" will not cover front to rear of
the vehicle. The sheet metal is roughly .045" thick or about 18 gauge.
Our Expert's Take:
Unless you're making you own repair panel, when replacing or
repairing any sheet metal, never cut out the old metal until you have
the replacement piece. The floor pan patch panels are just that,
patches. They are not intended to be a full replacement so expect to
cut, shape and modify as needed to get the patch fit.
