Time for a farewell

Today saw my 411 being loaded onto the back of a car transporter heading of to its new owner in Stockton-on-Tees. :crybaby: Thanks for all the help, advice and moral support from all of you in the Type 3&4 owners club. Keep up the goodwork and I'll hopefully see some of you at some shows in the futu...

Re: Late Air Filter Question

My 411 is FI and there are crankcase breather pipes and one from the airfilter going to a flame trap on top of the engine by the PCV valve. Sorry if it's not helping at all but I've no experience of type 3 FI but assume they also ran the D Jetronic system which I assume would have similar plumbing

Re: Late Air Filter Question

My wife beetle has a connection on its oil bath filer there as well, about 1/2 inch diameter that connects to the oil filler bit. Would Type 3s have a similar set up?

Re: Headlight Issue

Well done! Most things are pretty straightforward when you find the problem...it's finding the problem that is often the hard bit

Re: Headlight Issue

Chances are one of them is the flasher unit for indicators, it will click when indicators are on. The other should click when changing between dipped and main beam, assuming that is the same set up is on type 3s beetles and Type 4s

Could easily be an earth fault?

Rapido Confort caravan

We're selling our 1979 Rapido Confort caravan. This towed really well behind my 412 and my latebay so think it would tow well behind a Type 3 as well

It's on eBay

Haven't used it much this winter but changing the temp sensor/thermo switch did make a difference

Re: Stanford Hall?

Sorry to be a PITA but something has cropped up which means that I can't make it next week.

Could someone let me know who's on a reserve list and I'll arrange to send the pass

I can do both days, however a quick question. Are the passes just for our cars to get onto the lineup and do we need to purchase tickets for ourselves?
