Unique, 2870 mm long throttle cable (VW part No. 211 723 555), illustrated below, for the Australian, Canadian, Swedish & USA specification, 1976~79 VW 2000 Type 2, with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection & automatic transmission.

Price: 񌛌0, inclusive of UK postage & packing

Payment: Cheque, payable to Nigel A. Skeet

Contact: Nigel A. Skeet, 2a Sydervelt Road, Canvey Island, Essex, SS8 9EG (E-mail: naskeet@hotmail.com)

A spare throttle cable, is an essential emergency spare, for all rear-engined VWs, which should ideally be kept in the vehicle at all times, especially when touring overseas. Obtaining a spare at short notice, from North America or Sweden, would be almost impossible, resulting in one's vehicle being immobilised for at least several days (or weeks, dependent upon availability!), in the event of cable breakage.

On all but lowered 1968~79 VW Type 2s (under which, it is more difficult to crawl, without being jacked up), replacing a broken a throttle cable, is a quick and easy job (provided one has a spare, readily to hand), which will enable one to continue one's journey, within a half-hour or so.

Throttle cable (VW part No. 211 723 555), illustrated in the 1968~79 VW Station Wagon / Bus, Official Service Manual LPV 997 289, Robert Bentley Publishers, 1979, ISBN 0-8376-0094-4, Chapter 10 - Fuel Injection, Page 30, Figure 6-7, Item 2; reproduced below:



Throttle cable (VW part No. 211 723 555), illustrated in the official 1968~79 VW Type 2, Replacement Parts Catalogue & Microfiche, Page & Frame 61, Item 23 (incorporating Item 27); reproduced below:



After supposedly being No Longer Available, for sometime, I recently found them relisted, on the Californian, Bus Boys Inc. website, priced at US$1795 (approximately 1150, at recent exchange rates; plus trans-Atlantic postage & packing), which is about three times more expensive, than the throttle cable for vehicles with manual transmission.
