What are those parts?

#1 Post by Rafik Dous » Sun May 04, 2008 7:18 am

Came in a box with my T5B. Couple of brackets and what looks like a plunger with cable connected to it.

A helpful 356er already highlighted that the brackets are for the trunk lock. I should've picked it up
What about the plunger thing? Could it be anything to do with a gas heater?

Rafik,

Not for a gas heater, for the regular heater. That is the heater control. It mounts on the tunnel in front of the shifter. There should be a knob on top of it. When you turn the knob, it pulls the cables that are routed through the tunnel to the heater valves and flapper boxes.

Bruce has got it right - but let me add that it is for a 356A, not a T5B. The B and later ones had an integrated shifter/heater control housing.
