      Messy engine bay? It's missing the battery box is all. Though I will agree "unmolested" and a complete respray are definitely not in the same category. Wonder what color it was before?

      022957147 should fit a 2003 Jetta VR6 and a 2004 R32, correct? I have both, and might as well do them both at once.

      I'm actually out in the driveway right now doing this. Just something quick to add:

      You don't "have" to expect to break off the plug like the OP and buy a new one. There are two plastic clips on...

      Just my experience -
      The one they used at the tire shop I went to crushed my sideskirts. While there was no permanent damage/deformation to the plastic, the paint definitely had hairline spider...

      If you're willing to pay top dollar, have you looked into just getting your seats reupholstered? It may be cheaper. Just a thought. :)
