Handbrake part

Post by Crooky »

Does anyone know if there are any suppliers of the triangular fitting that joins the cab end of the handbrake cables that allows it to hook to the handbrake lever under the cab floor. I can't find them anywhere! It's for a 57 Kombi.

34 = 211 711 345. Link. The good news is that this is still available from VW via their Classic Parts section via Heritage. £2.46!
35 = 211 711 347. Pin. NLA.
36 = N 12458. Circlip 10 DIN 9045. NLA.
38 = N124581. Bolt. 10 x 23 x19 DIN 1234.NLA.
Although 35,36, and 38 are no longer available they shouldn't be too hard to source/adapt from a good fixings supplier once you've got 34 in your actual hands.

Yes, it's the right part number.
On their website everything is computer "translated" from the German original so some weirdness does occur.
