Does anybody know if the front quarter light catches are the same as the Beetle ones? The part numbers are almost the same, i.e. the T2 part number is 311-837-658/A/ for a right hand catch and the beetle part number is 111-837-658/A/ for a right hand one. Looking on suppliers sites, the catches look identical from the photo's. I'm just wondering if it is just a part numbering system to identify beetle parts and T2 parts but are in fact the same part!?

I bought some cheapo Beetle frames to nick the catches from, and they look identical to me!

Thanks for the reply, I have confirmed that they are the same part! I bought a new one from Heritage today and fitted it. It seems a bit weird that Heritage doesn't advertise it as being suitable for a T2 quarter light, only for a beetle!
