That might be kind of tricky. I have not seen one. Just for clarification, you are talking about the one on the left side of the motor, mounted on the firewall? I would contact Alvin Vaughn down in Dalton and check the samba classifieds for one. I'm not certain if they make replacements.

I had a complete working autostick system (except the shift rod) taken out of a '74 Super Beetle, plus a few spare parts.  It all got destroyed in my garage fire.   :'(

You need to check here: www.vwar.org

There is a reason my name is ASBug = Automatic Stickshift Bug.
Let me know if I can help you.
I sold my parts with my bug.

I back the Alvin suggestion in Dalton.

Any way, good luck and I loved my Autostick.
