Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fiche and he will read for a lifetime." - old German Proverb :-)

I've provided two indexes, one by VW classification and the other by the original bug-bits layout. If you don't understand the groupings read VW Part Numbering System by Melissa Kepner and Jim Adney.

I've used the original filenames for the gif images for two reasons. First, because the filenames reflect the illustration numbers and second, so urls archived in mailing lists can be easily mapped to these pages by editing the url. I also corrected several mistakes from the original archived copy.
