Yes, the water was coming out of the corners, I just thought it was the
seams. I am going to check them out as soon as I get it home because there
was a fair bit of water in there.

I had the same problem once with one of my beetles, and I was able to fix it
by pulling it apart and putting the ball bearing back in the right place.

Is there a separate fuse for the left and right directions on the Type 3? I

I will ask at my VWFLAPS when I am next there. They have a lot of nearly new
/ second hand parts, and they might have a Type 3 muffler in amongst it all.
I heard here that the OEM ones have some special heater parts on them or
