Hi,

I have some questions about how to get into the heater channel cq rocker cavity.

What is the best way to remove the heater vent in the dogleg on a 63 kg?
There should be 2 caps in the rear wheelwell ,only I don't seem to find them.Anyone got a picture of them?
Other waysto get there?

I'm not familiar with any caps that are supposed to be in the rear wheelwell, but if you are trying to access the inside of the heater channel I think you could remove the accordian style plastic tube that connects the output of the heat exchangers (or J-tubes, depending on what the PO left you with) with the Y-pipe that resides beneath your Karmann Ghia's back seat.

This image from the thread Question regarding the heater channels underneath the rear seats illustrates what I'm reffering to...

I believe you should be able to run your bore scope into the base of the Y-pipe, and then follow the branch that heads over to the outer side of the vehicle (as opposed to the branch that ends in the heat vent below the rear seat) right on into the rocker heater channel.

Well yes ,I guess this should be possible ....but not easy !

I received a pm from Emil and he's got the 3 holes in the wheelwell but his car is a 70.
It could be interesting to hear if other owners of earlier ghia's -say begin 60- have these holes.
I can't seem to find them.
