I in need of the headlight button that goes in the middle of the pull switch, which I know I can get new. The problem is, I also need whatever the piece of the brake warning button that cleans up the hole in the dash. It's like a black cover that sticks out from the switch to hide the inside of the dash pad. What on Earth is this called and exactly what does it look like. Think

Please see the pictures to see what I am talking about. I have the warning button, but it just doesn't look right. Maybe I have the part here, but don't recognize it. Could anyone post a pic of just the thing I need for it?

Thanks!!

Looks like you need the cup. Here's an ad that shows a bunch of the parts. Cup is in the top left, complete assembly over mid-right. Shoot that person a PM and pick one up.

And for your switch:

Nothing says "Volkswagen" like repairs made with spare change!

With inflation, it may be a fifty cent piece these days.

Yeah but install it with Washington/Jefferson facing out, otherwise it will be for the "tails" lights, not the "heads" lights.

Sorry, terrible joke.

BTW, your Bug is incredible.

That dash pad looks pretty new/clean. Aftermarket? How does it fit? Any problems?
