...it was VW's early attempt at a diagnostics plug whereby they could troubleshoot electrical problems. All the wires there can be bypassed as it is only a sattelite harness on some of the electrical components. If one ever rebuild a Beetle, fit the new harness and drop this central plug for neatness.

...looks like my "reverse trike" build will be a stillborn idea as it is not supported by our traffic system, daft!
