No, this is not the same seal offered by others for three bucks. We had to buy 1000 of these for VW Brazil to even talk to us!
We have a detailed article in the GoWesty Library about this seal. Click the link in the "Related Articles" tab to check it out.
Fits: 1972-91 Bus & Vanagon, with automatic or manual transmission, and aircooled or water-cooled engines. Will NOT fit diesel.
