    I replaced these wires and clips about February 2009.
    Over a period of time, due to engine/ manifold heat the wires get brittle and break down.

    Part numbers recommended by Crasher were:-
    Plug 443 972 992 1

    Cover 447 919 141 3

    Single wire piece 000 979 105 or 106, 1.30 odd each, come as a bag of five.

    By "how far back" I think he meant distance along the cable.

    OK if that's what he means then he could try gripping a couple of strands at a time(of the suspect wire) and pull them out gently with some pliers. If they come away, he'll have a good idea how far down the cable he needs to cut to replace onto good sound wire.

    The way I read it was he wanted to know how long ago I did it, maybe to see how long it would last. Sorry anyway, hope this clarifies the situation.
    Would be interested to know how he gets on.

    Correct.

    There is some black shrouding so far back down the cable on our lasses cabby, I was going to cut it off, replace the cable as far back as possible and tape it back on when finished.
    Its also an auto, so when it cuts out in the middle of the road, she has to slip it into neutral but it's hard to find actual neutral so the the starter will engage so sometimes it's into park to get it going. It could be fine all day then come to a busy junction and it seams to know and just cut out in the middle of the road.

    Interesting thread & I admire the staying power to stick with the Pierberg carb. I have worked with various VW engines with Pierberg carbs over the last 43 years & have always found the carbs overly complex, frequently unreliable & underperforming & Bl**dy expensive. Every time I have replaced them with an equivalent (not uprated) Weber at a fraction of the price the performance difference is amazing. My 1600 Golf Driver is typical the Weber conversion was cheaper the the parts required to repair the 2E2 & has performed faultlessly for the last 5 years. Previously I replaced the 2 1/2 carb set up on a 2L Type 2 camper with a pair of single choke Webers & the change in performance was nothing short of magical. Even back to Beetle days almost any replacement carb would out perform the Pierberg never quite sure why the original carbs are well made but the just seem to underperform compared to equivalent replacements.

    Is it staying power or the lack of funds with which to do anything else? If you were cold hearted about it I would say a large majority of the people who come on this forum asking for advice are here simply because they have to fix it themselves as they cannot afford an alternative route. I have lost count of the times in the near 27000 posts I have made on here where my suggestion has been rebuffed with the equivalent of "well yeh man but I an't got nah dolla tu get it fixed m8". I tire of it to be honest.

    I rebuilt my old GL 1.8 mk2 2E2 Pierburg (spelling?) a couple of times with a rebuild kit ,new waxstat, vacuum pull down unit etc. It was fine for months then another problem would arise. After the last rebuild I was rear-ended and the car was scrap . I was glad to see the back of it !
