The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

when the1978 vw super beetle-- fuel injected- is cold it is difficult to start, like it's not getting the gas. Mechanic seems to think that the mass airflow sensor is gone ??? Starts fine when warm.

If you are saying that your bug idles but stalls when you push the throttle, then look to replace your MAP sensor. This MAP sensor increases gas flow as you push the throttle down which increases the air flow. Also get an OBD2 reader and get your error codes from the ECM system. Not as hard as it sounds. When you get the codes you can look them up or ask at the auto parts store.

Sometimes quality of the bulbs are suspect in these cases. Check all connections at the assembly for any corrosion or looseness. I believe these also had a problem with the brakelight switch just above the brake pedal. My guess would be the connection at the brake light assembly or the socket where the bulbs go in.

SOURCE: Firing order for 1971 VW
The firing order is 1-4-3-2. The cylinders are numbered from the front of the car with 1 & 2 being on the passenger side and 3 & 4 on the driver's side, so #1 and #3 are closest to the rear seat. The distributor turns clockwise and there is a scribed notch on it to mark the #1 position. Hope this helps.
