You may or may not know this, but the original 12v generator on your ’67 Beetle is a one year only part. Often times, this item is replaced with an aftermarket unit that does not have the correct push on terminals. Amazingly, I recently acquired 3 of these from Germany.
The correct part numbers:
Bosch: 101 302 067
VW: 211 903 031
I believe there are a few variations in the part numbers. Feel free to comment below, if you have more information to support this.
I may consider selling. Do contact me if you’re interested. Let’s take a closer look.
On the top, you’ll see the correct push on terminals. The incorrect version of this would have the pole style. Most ’67 Beetles I’ve seen over the years have the wrong generator. I’m not sure the reason for this, as a generator can be rebuilt. It’s sad to think about how many original German parts are siting in landfills.
I love original German parts!
