Split window beetles used a switch to operate the semaphores, which were centrally placed on the upper part of the dashboard, just below the windshield. Actually, the switch looks like mounted upside down, kind of weird. Well that switch is now available as a new part, and we, at BBT, are very proud, that we can offer this to you, to give your dashboard that nice complete new look! Many times broken, or simply missing, replace that old worn out, broken or missing super cool switch, and get the feeling how it must have been to operate the semaphores when your split window beetle was new! Easy to install (when the original hole is still around) .
