Re: part number?


Thanks. As usual, Phil Payne beat everyone to the reply.
Does that man live on the computer? ;^)

Anyway, I was able to get the part from the local VW dealer
(only $7 each) and it was a good thing I did--on my way home
to lunch after getting the parts, the throttle cable fell
off (actually, the balance weight). I did have the presence
of mind to hit the cruise control before slowing to a crawl,
but it took me until I'd coasted down to 30mph before
thinking of it. Made for an interesting jaunt down the
highway (actually, down the edge of the highway).

Installed and as good as new now. So, what's next?

Thanks to all who replied quickly,
