For the later cars like a 69. I believe the shaft bushings are the same 
size as the 70 only. I know on my 65 I had to open up the holes a little 
bit, but then they used the smaller bushings and shafts. Like Jim said it 
might only need a little bit of trimming around the holes, or it might not 
need anything. You could check the WCM catalog, or the ISP catalog 
and see if they offer an "early vs late" grommet. The hardest part to get 
is the 70 only wiper arms. I only say that, as this is becoming a common 
mod for type 3 owners.

I don't think there's a part number for the whole assembly. It's a collection of 
parts. You need to find someone with a '70 that they are parting out. I 
thought you already found one on the samba.  

I'm not sure if you'll need to drill anything out. If you do, it will just be a 
couple mm. It's also possible that you can use the same holes, but instead of 
2 grommets you'd need 4 flat rubber washers.

(Looking at the parts book, VW shows only a grommet, same part for all 
years, but I'm sure WCM has sold me grommets and washers for different
