Welcome To The Old Volks Home Index/Links Page! We don't sell parts anymore. But due to numerous requests, this site has been reactivated as a portal and to provide VW enthusiaists with information. Keep checking back at this site. New links are being added from time to time.
*Site Information Updates* February 25, 2005 Minor Changes - Just minor changes to the Home Page. Cleaned out defunct links, updated/restored Brad Clausen's Photo Step-by-Step article link to Richard Atwell's "mirror" link. Seems Brad's page has disappeared into the dustbin of history, but Richard had the foresight to copy the html and jpegs to "mirror" it on his site. In addition, take a look at Richard's Website itself. It's chock full of info, links and other great VW related stuff on the Bay Window Type 2.

The replacement Headlight Relay you buy these days may or may not match what was originally installed in your Volkswagen. Terminal Numbers (or Letters) changed as the design and/or size was upgraded over the years. In addition, some years require an additional wire bridge between two certain terminals for the relay to even work properly. This shows a detailed diagram of which wires go where and why.
