    IMG_4568.JPG Hi ,
    Is there a parts manual available for a bay 1975. I am finding things on my van that is unexplainable or parts that may or may not be missing. I have attached some photos and its great that someone can tell me if something is missing but a comprehensive parts manual would really help, At the base of the hand brake is a large gab I have a handbrake boot that covers this but should there be another seal ? There is a perfect hole next to the gear stick should there be a rubber seal ? and not sure what is missing on the center pole with a screw ?
    Any advice and where to track a parts manual IMG_4568.JPG IMG_4568.JPG IMG_4568.JPG IMG_4570.JPG IMG_4567.JPG would be appreciated. Regards

    Bently and Haynes manuals both worth having.
    Forget gregories.
    Googling what you think part is usualy gets suppliers, how to fit , diagrams.
    Some people have links to downloadable copies of manuals.
    Check repair sections on here.

    Expect the brake boot is probably held down by the front rubber mat.
    I'll check other hole

    Number 3 photo is the outer cable locator for the passenger side red lever that moves air from down to up to windscreen. That cable inner connects to the lever sitting below it.
    Number 1 photo is how the handbrake is without the boot on it:rolleyes:.
    Number 2 is a random hole I've never seen on the 3 '76's that I've owned but is neat so may have a purpose. @Wayne murray ?
    Cheers

    Samba, ratwell, are useful sites for info.
    Add vw if they don't come up.
    Commonly used suppliers are, bus stop, Mick motors, just kampers au, heritagepartscentre.au

    numerous others as well.

    Welcome.
    Enjoy the disease ;)

    You can get genuine parts books, that show pictures of all the parts in varies models of the same year. You don't see them often.
    Seeing parts books with part numbers also are even harder to find.

    You handbrake boot is the only rubber that goes over the handbrake lever and the lever is wedged shape (in width) as it go the lever. There is a groove around the boot in which the rubber mat sits into and it doesn't go anywhere.
    Large hole I'll have to check to see if my 76 has one but far as I know there is no need for a hole their, just put a rubber grommet in to cover hole and stop anything entering (water)
    The totem pole in the middle is what @David H has mentioned with heater cables.
    There is a manual (glove box size) that comes with the car when you buy them new, they are handy to have if you find one for your year model as well.

    Find that some of the spares providers have some good part diagrams.
