Please help.  I have a problem w/ the fuel gauge on a 74 super beetle.  The wires on the fuel sending unit and on the fuel gauge were disconnected and not labeled, so I have no clue which wire goes where.  If your looking at the fuel tank which wire goes on the left post and right post?  Also on the back of the speedo one wire goes to the vibrator and the other to the post next to it, but again not sure which one.  Also once the wires are back to where they need to be is there some kind of test I can do to make sure it's right?  I have already burned up one gauge and really would rather not waste my $$ on another one.

Lastly, I've looked at the wiring diagram, but it's not the biggest help.

Thank you much!!!

OK, on the sending unit on the tank as you're looking at it from the front of the car, the yellow wire goes on the left and the brown (ground) wire goes on the right.

I've attached a pic of the back of the gauge that may help you out with that. Hope this helps and welcome to the forum!
