In putting my MK IV 1 1/2 litre car back together I have found that the connecting rod between the dash board “heat/cool” knob and the bulkhead water control valve is missing!! The drawing in the Service Manual is not clear, so does anyone have any photos of the rod and how it links into the two slotted ends, or any better drawings with sizes/lengths, etc.
It’s marked up as “REMOTE CONTROL ROD” on the drawing - fixing between the “WATER CONTROL VALVE” and the “REMOTE CONTROL KNOB”.
Here are pictures of the Water Control Valve (on the bench) and at the back of the bulkhead when fitted, and the back of the Control Knob on the dashboard. I guess at each end of the connecting rod it fits into the respective hole and fixed with split pins through the slots, but cant remember if there was a “flexi link” to help rotation and line-up?

Any information much appreciated.
