OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11
Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11


 

Hard Start Relay Kit (Generic WR-1), 12V, 3516-11 does NOT work on 6V cars! 40 years ago VW guys had a tough time starting their 6V VW's on cold mornings, and with some thinkin' they used a VW Horn Relay to bypass the run from back-front-back with a factory relay to shorten the voltage trip. It worked well and was the inspiration for this in a 12V version. This Relay Kit is 1/2 the price of the Bosch WR-1 version!


Furthermore, in the factory VW wiring arrangement, the power goes from the battery (under back seat or in rear of car), then forwards to the key, then back to the starter. THAT IS A LONG WAY!

The combination of the old wiring and long run The end result is that your 12V starter only "sees" ~9-10V, and it's no wonder they don't work reliably! The installation of these kits will really help stubborn starting problems!

This "part" is available in both genuine Bosch and the generic version, the generic one is 1/2 the price of the Bosch!

As with many other products, ACN carries multiple versions and quality levels of many parts, depending on what your needs and budget allows.

Price: $17.95
