How do I know if I have an early/late fuse box

Post by Cataldoodledoo »

Trying to work this out and also find a wiring diagram for the one I have. What’s the easiest way? It’s a 1985 VW T25. Thanks.

Thanks, definitely early then. Do you know if there’s a link about for a wiring guide?

Might be one on the wiki https://wiki.club8090.co.uk/index.php/Main_Page

If not google, I'd advise getting a haynes or bentley manual they are very much worth it.
