Thermostat, 1961-1979 150-160 Degree



Original style thermostats are no longer produced, which can make it difficult when it comes time for replacement on your Volkswagen. Our 150-160 Degree Fahrenheit (65-70 Celsius) Thermostat is the modern Mexican style that was introduced on later fuel injected models beginning in 1975, but is a suitable replacement for earlier 1961-1974 VW models with minor modifications.

  • Fits 1975-1979 Fuel Injected (Direct Replacement)
  • Fits 1961-1974 Non-Fuel Injected w/ Minor Modification
  • 150-160 Degree Fahrenheit (65-70 Celsius)
  • Replacement for VW # 111-119-159-A
  • VW # 043-119-159

TECH NOTE: To fit a 1961-1974 non-fuel injected VW, a small locating hole is required to be drilled into the original mounting bracket to prevent the thermostat from rotating.

NOTE: Volkswagen of Mexico has discontinued production on this item, limited quantities are available. Please allow for additional handling time.
