Does anyone know where I can get a new accelerator pedal shaft seal for our 1960?

Its the one that fits into the side of the tunnel and is kind of an oval shape with a mushroom style plug at each end and a hole in the middle to allow the shaft to pass through the tunnel to the accelerator cable on the other side.

Thanks

Can you get a photo of where you mean, none of this is ringing any bells.

In the passenger footwell? (assumed RHD..)

Its not a seal its a bush.The shaft rotates in it.Never seen them in a parts book but i bet its the same as a late model one so try heritage vw.

That would make sense, as I've seen those bushes in the pedal repair kits available.

BUT, this looks nothing like a bush....

and this is where it came from - note the two smaller holes either side of the main one, for the mushroom type plugs shown in picture 2 above....

OH! :lol:

I always wondered what the two other holes were for. :oops:

Well, if it's any consolation it looks like our bug has got the seal - but no bush!:lol:

I presume there's only meant to be one bush though - on the pedal side?

I assume so, but what do I know about pedals? Nothing it seems. :lol:

Thanks Rich, so does that mean our '60 has had the central tunnel replaced at some point with a later version?

I had another look last night and what I thought was the bush mentioned above, turns out to be a pedal roller for later models.

Can anyone confirm exactly what I need here? Again, part numbers would be great (can I order these parts from VW direct?)

As it stands I've got the pedal assembly off, it been cleaned and sprayed ready for re-fitting, but this is holding me up:(

Thanks again

My mistake. The part was used from the 1958 model year onwards. The 1965 parts manual is a little unclear about this, so I checked my 1960 parts manual and it has the part listed for chassis number 1 600 440 onwards.

That's a relief :lol:

Was there also supposed to be a bush mounted at this position - I presume it would sit behind the rubber seal?

I managed to find a NOS one a few years ago and I don't think anyone does a repro (yet)?
