Re: Unknown Wire

Does the Horn still work? -That's the only wire You'd expect in that area- Horn would normally be Black/yellow, but maybe the new loom used a different colour?

Wiring diagram is here: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/in ... 3_6870.jpg

Re: 411 brake callipers

They don't fit any other Volkswagens, but repair kits & pistons etc are fairly easy to get hold of https://brakeparts.co.uk/shop/VW/Variant/66-74/Variant%201500%20&%201600%20Fastback%20Type%203/Front%20-%20Brake%20Calipers%20and%20Wheel%20Cylinders https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FRONT-BRAKE-CALIPER-REPA...

Re: Type 3 Stalls When Slowing Down

Check the 12v supply to the cut off jets & that the jets themselves haven't unscrewed themselves.
