This is a part of a decoupler only, only buy this if you need international shipping. Splitting your order in two optimizes USPS international shipping.
To order a decoupler for delivery abroad, buy this item and the decoupler completion kit
. Your order will not ship until you have ordered both items.
Due to the shipping in two boxes, you will have to install the actuator yourself, however, this is a matter of seconds and well described in my install instructions.
For info about the decouplers, please look at the item "decoupler".
Your order is only valid if you also buy the decoupler completion kit

German made decouplers for the VW Vanagon Syncro. Complete kit with everything you need for installation.
The best decouplers you can buy, because:
-over 1000 of these units are in service
-backed by a three year, unlimited miles warranty on parts and workmanship
-at cost repair guarantee if failed due to outside circumstances, like excessive driveshaft vibration
-available in a brand new NOS nosecone as an option
These kits allow you to engage and disengage power to the front wheels. I have been supplying these kits to the Vanagon community for two years. VW originally intended to deliver the vans with these decouplers installed but apparently cut costs just before going into production. These kits are machined from the original VW blueprints.
Decouplers install in the nosecone of your main transmission. Installation is easy, the nosecone (front part of main transmission) is bolted on with seven bolts. The electrical connection is already prewired in your van. The kit supplies all the parts for the vacuum tie-in.
Your van needs to have a rear locker installed for this kit to work.
german made internal parts, assembled here in the U.S. The kit includes absolutely everything you need for installation. The nosecones are sandblasted, come with actuator, vacuum lines, complete VW switch assembly and as a bonus now with a custom made seal between nosecone and transmission, saving you the mess with the sealing goo. All nosecones get brand new SKF bearings and a new oem main seal. Stainless actuator shaft, stainless screws on the outside, custom stainless steel actuator bracket. Original VW dashboard switch.
These decouplers are an exact replica of the original VW design, except that the sliding cog wheel that engages the 4wd is beefed up by about 30%.
About 1000 units so far are in service.
You can either send out your nosecone for me to modify or have me send you a complete unit and you return the core to me ($250 core charge). Please select the option below. If you do not select the $250 core charge, your decoupler will not ship until I have received your core.
How I got into selling these? I wanted the best decoupler for my van and really liked the beefiness of the original VW design vs the typical decoupler design sold here in the U.S. I am German myself, so after some phone calls and emails I found the manufacturer there that makes the best ones. I visited him at his shop in Germany and he agreed to sell them to the U.S through me.
