Wiring Diagram Errors Bentley Manual for Type 2?

Hi All,

Does the Bentley have a mis-identified wiring diagram? Looking at wiring diagram "E" in Bentley's, for the "VW Type 2 -- from August 1970 (1971 Models)" I note two fans, V2 and V2, wired to fan switch, E9.

However, the legend at the bottom of the diagram does not mention any V2's. Only a V -- the windshield wiper motor.

The legend *does* mention a Y2, as a "fan motor, front."

But the diagram does not have a Y2, only a Y, which is presumably the clock since clock lamp L8 is shown lighting it.

To the best of my knowledge, my 71 bus (chassis number 221 xxxx xxx) does not have a fan switch or any fans, so I suspect that the diagram is wrong on a few counts.

www.vintagebus.com has two versions of wiring diagrams for the 1971 (US) model: From August 1970, and from January 1971. The January 1971 version appears to be the same as the Bentley "from August 1970" version, while the German "from August 1970" appears to accurately depict what is in my bus.

I'm guessing that Bentley's somehow put the earlier legend with the January 1971 wiring diagram.

Is this a known error?

Good Evening,

It does appear that there are at least two different wiring diagrams for 1971 Type 2s issued by VWoA and VWaG. The diagram "E" listed in our V279 Manual should be (and will eventually be) changed to read "...from January 1971 (1971) models", and we will add a diagram that reads "... from August 1970 (early production 1971) models".

Watch this site for a link to the early diagram; I'll get our web guys on ASAP. And, thanks for calling this to our attention.

We have updated the 14th edition of the Volkswagen '68-'79 Type 2 manual with a new wiring diagram for early 1971 models (from August 1970). The previous wiring diagram for 1971 models had been re-labeled (from January 1971). You can download a copy of this wiring diagram, in color by following the instructions at this link:

You can also see the other recent corrections we have made to this manual here:

I hope this helps everyone and we really appreciate this being brought to our attention.

It normally includes pressing and also holding the Bluetooth switch until you see a flashing light that indicates the pairing prepares. These devices would have been functioning well on your previous Windows OS - 8.1, 8, 7, XP or Panorama, but after updating to Windows 10, they are no longer functioning properly.
