not all of them have it. I think that only the late convertible 1303 had it installed from factory. But it's quite easy to do. Check out post no. 130 and 133 in my topic:

...the more I think about this, the more I realize I'm going to have to come up with a way to get intermittent wipers working in the 1302.

Thanks for the reminder, and the links...a good mental puzzle for when I'm not in the garage

Hi

The factory way is very neat, on my sons bug I fitted a Hella Intermittent wiper switch, it has variable delay

So, after reading a few times about this modification I decided to give it a go...
I ordered the required parts for vwheritage and got them delivered today, only to find that the switch was missing the spring and ball that keeps the lever in the selected position, the 6 cables that go to the flat plastic might be too long to install and that the relay comes with a diagram of the connection numbers printed on one side and no indication next to the terminals...the relay has 5 normal size male flat connectors and small

for some reason i cant upload any pics (although resized to 320x480 and 26.9kb jpg)

Because I'm such a nice guy



You can use the spring and ball from the stock switch too.

Thnx a lot Joel...what a nice thing, to wake up and to find that one small problem was solved...
I know that I can use the other from the original switch, but im not letting go so easily from a 61 gbp switch. and now it is 2 days with now reply from the sales manager. I hope its worth the wait and that their stock is somehow affected.

Thnx again Joel

Chris

Yes, that's alot to pay for a faulty switch.

Also the little tab that keeps the lid on usually always breaks when you crack them open.
