Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dumb question.   Can you raise the steering column on the '79 Beetle.  For some weird reason, I don't remember the steering wheel virtually sitting on my lap, I thought it was up higher.

I do not think that feature was available,unless it was customized .How about the seat position ,i did not think that was an option either.I give up,I do not know.Sorry i can't help.


All you can do is use spacers and/or a smaller steering wheel.
