washer knob

please can anyone help!
I have a 1970 beetle in for its MOT. The only thing I need to fix (luckily) is the interior windscreen washer knob. Its permanently pushed in and no amount of pressure from the water bottle will push it back out.

Can anyone please help me find someone who can sell me this part.

Many thanks

Hi Helen,

I have exactly the same problem with my '70 bug aswell. You can get a replacment switch from the likes of Cool Air http://www.coolairvw.co.uk/viewProduct.aspx?id=641 or VW Heritage http://www.vwheritage.com/publicRouter.cfm/loadPage/314/?cftoken=95101640&cfid=740332 to name but a few. Personally though I’m gonna junk the bottle & switch the runs off the spare tyre & fit a bottle with an electric pump ( http://www.vwheritage.com/publicRouter.cfm/loadPage/314/?cftoken=95101640&cfid=740332 item 13 at the bottom)

thanks for this. I just wanted to avoid having to put any holes in my dash hence why i was looking to fix the existing button. I think my problem is the workings BEHIND the actual knob so even if i get a new button it won’t fix the issue! I might convert to electric myself. Do you know what the difference is between the cheaper and more expensive conversion packs?

The more expensive one is designed to fit nicely onto the the beetle wing with one of the bolts, the other is one that could be fitted into any vehicle of your liking.

single or double spped wipers as i have some second hand you could have for a couple of quid
