I would say that is for the windscreen wash bottle - if it wasn't raining at present, I might be tempted to go out and take a photo to post up - but that's not going to happen until the rain finishes!

Mine is nearer the middle of the vehicle and possibly a different bracket - but having looked twice at your photo, it appears you have wash tubing coming in from the right hand side which would suggest you already have a wash bottle.

So bracket could be for something else....

It is the mount for the small Hella map light. Search Google Images either Pinzgauer or Unimog Map Light. Same style light VW used on their Typ 181 (but with different bulb configuration).

hope this helps.

I've always wondered what that was for! Glad someone asked.

My best guess was that it was some kind of holder for that lolipop-looking thing that's in the parts manual. (What's that for? Directing convoy traffic?)

So just to clarify, the map light is the one with a shutter, not the "dome light", right?

These units are the ones with the sliding shutter. The military units use a festoon-type bulb while those used by VW used a small socket-type bulb.
