Re: Leaking after washing??

There is only 1 way, Remove the pipe work, it just pulls off, pull away from the drain, then in each corner at the top is a 10mm set screw. Remove those and slowly lower the box, you will see two cables connected to connected to the top which control the flaps. Photograph that and then disconnect. W...

Re: Leaking after washing??

If the black box was full of water then the drain is blocked. Underneath it you will see a short rubber hose that goes to the bulk head. That hose needs unblocking, from the underside of the car you might be able to broggle the hole but I suspect it would be easier with the fuel tank out. Alternativ...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Ta very much. I think it was around as late as 79. It was VW's commercial van colour. But its a VW colour, it was available in 1971 and most important if all, i like it 😊

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Ah yes first available, but it was available for 10 years so that counts are more 70s than 60s :P

My point being, that was a CPO VW colour during this cars year, even though it wasn't available on a type 3

Re: 1971 Fastback KBY 217K winter 2016 tidy up

it looks easy enough to make, unless your die hard on original. which i assume you aren't be cause of the 944 brakes. Chain drill the slot then file it out, big hammer in a vice to get the bend. you're more than capable. Its provably easier than finding one

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

If only I knew, I was trying to restrict myself to type 3 blues. But none really tickle me right. I like the colour on the filler flap, but its not a VW colour, so I might just have to get that custom mixed.

Ah thats good, what did you remove to get it to turn? crank? :lol:
