Hello I have 71 and was wondering on the washer switch which barb is input and which is output for the water supply? Mine is dash mounted. Thanks.

Hose from bottle on the center or straight nipple, angled nipple to windshield.

Just a guess, but VW shared parts among models, so maybe this older Big diagram suggests the nipple nearest the switch body goes to the nozzle:

EDIT: looks like you got a better answer posted above mine

EDIT2: This image from an ad for that year Bus shows two parallel nipples (always a good thing), and so I'll revert back to my original post:

It's worth making sure. I had them backwards on an old Bug and although it still worked, it leaked with them reversed.

From the Bentley (Sec. 10.7, Electrical System chapter): "On the rotary-type switch, the hose from the reservoir
is connected to the endmost of the two connections." On a spare I have on hand, the end-most is labeled "B", and
the other, closer to the dash, is labeled "D" (or perhaps "O").
