Most V-dubs were never fitted with reversing lights. BUT most gearboxes had a facility for the switch, and many vehicles already have the correct tail lights, you just need to finish off the job with this Switch and some wiring.
Take a look at the nosecone of your gearbox, you should find a threaded blanking plug (similar to the gearbox drain plug)
Simply take this plug out, and replace it with this switch! When reverse is selected, the hockey stick pushes againt the switch
Then it's just a case or sorting out the wiring, and you'll have reversing lights!
