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..)

Thanks

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)?
