VW Steering Column Tension Spacer Part #4   Price: $5.95
3D replicated part for Volkswagen Beetle steering wheel tension spacer. The original part over time can crumble to pieces. In the order of parts, this spacer is installed after the metal contact ring (sometimes referred to as an anti-rattle bushing) and upper bearing in the shaft. A cir-clip is then installed after the spacer. This part is crucial to the upper steering column. Its actual function is to hold tension on the contact ring/anti-rattle bushing so that it doesn't slide down too far past the upper bearing and cause up/down left/right movement. If a plastic contact ring/anti-rattle bushing is used, this part is not required.

Note: I created the part in 3D software, uploaded it to the shapeways.com website. This part is 3D printed by shapeways.com, when ordering the part will come from their location and may take up to 5 days to ship. This part has been tested to fit my 1971 Super Beetle steering column. I have not been able to test it in any other column. If your steering column is in the same family as a 71 Super Beetle, then it should fit.

The part can be bought here:

Hard to find in the real world that's why we live in a digital one!
