I've never even *owned* a VW, and keep a copy of this as an example
of a well-written manual by an author who understood both his subject

How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures
for the Compleat Idiot, by John Muir.

Despite being highly nonmechanical, I used this book in the late '70s

better technical manual.
