So I was fiddling with my steering wheel today, and these things fell out of the steering column Shocked If anyone could tell me what they are and where they go that would be great, as they are currently in a bag labeled mystery parts.

The bolt as a section cut out of the end of the treads like a self tapping screw.

Spring for the turn signal switch.

Calling in the experts!

I believe this is the last part I have from an old project car I bought, that I haven't already listed or sold. I want to say this is from the convertible top (it was a 1969), any ideas and how much it could potentially be worth would be great!

Yes, those are convertible parts. I would think they would be worth $50-$75, maybe a little more to the righ buyer.

I've got a new one. Being in a rush I didn't see how this was wired up. Now I can't figure it out and i've fried 2 sets of points. Can anyone help out with a simple wire diagram maybe? The factory ones i've found don't include this piece.

It's a rear defroster relay.

Certainly nothing to do with the engine.

If you're burning points, you have them connected to the wrong side of the coil. The points should be to the negative (1) side. The positive (15) side goes to the ignition key.

I'll double check that. I was thinking it was something else because of how & where it was mounted on the engine itself, lol. Thanks again.

You should not have a fuel filter there. Place it on the line between the tank and the pump...preferably not near the hot and sparking parts of the car. Between the tank and tunnel up front seems to be a good place.

Where you have it puts additional strain on an inherently weak part: carb intake pipe.

On a beetle the relay resides under the read seat. Not sure the correct location on a ghia. None of mine have had them.

The relay, at least on a '71 sedan, mounts to the engine bay firewall between the hinge and driver side fender. At least that is where it is located on the sedan I recently purchased.....

My '70 coupe has a mounting point there too, but I'm using for my bus blower control relays. The defroster is defunct and the wires were burnt, so I do without.

I return to this thread in hopes of figuring out another part!

I believe that this part has something to do with air/heat. It looks like this is the metal tube that runs right where the interior bodywork begins to bend to accommodate for the wheel well (it stands vertical.)

I have no clue what it is or what it is called. Any guesses would be appreciated. Very Happy

THIS IS FOR OXSIGNS...that is the defroster relay and mine is mounted exactly the same as yours is. one fuse holder is for that; and the other one is for the backup lights.If you like I could send off a pict or a diagram of the wiring.mine's a 73.

I actually know what this part is and I know where it goes. It off my '66 cabrio. It is located on the side of the Cabrio frame just above the windows and behind the front bow. But where does one buy a replacement?

I've searched KGPR and the Euro Sites but nothing so far. Even asking Kevin Fergusson and Lars Neufer draws a blank so it's something not on the early cabrios.

Anybody?

Nicholas,

that might be one of 'those' parts you have to fabricate because nobody repops them yet.

hey, you might have a niche market there... Smile
