      I'm using an engine harness out of a GLX and have a G60 radiator with the rectangular plug, but my harness has the round connector. Will the fan switch for the VR6 radiator fit in the G60 rad?

      The holes in the rad have been virtually the same from '76-present...

      Both Rad themal switches should fit.

      Make sure you have the right u-joints and it should bolt right up.

      Now for my question

      I'm not getting power to my gauge cluster. Its a mkIII cluster, I made the jump from D8 to E2 and still nothing. The LCDs are on without the key turned but as soon as I turn the key....nothing. Please help, seach is down and I want to figure this thing out. Any help, as always is much appreciated.

      Edit: Search is back up. Turns out I was using the original cluster harness. I got the mkIII cluster harness and should be good to go. Move along, nothing to see here.

      does the mk3 kframe make the engine sit a little higher on one side? how do you prevent that?

      Yes, It sits a little higher and will give it a little tilt.

      I don't know about Adjustment for the A3 K-frame but....

      To avoid this you can use a Corrado Vr6 K-frame which will allow the engie to sit a little lower and more level in the Engine Bay than the A3 K-frame.

      This is what I'm using in my swap just because of this issue.

      you can also cut the rear motormount down. i dont know how much but its very simple. maybe someone who knows for sure will post.

      forgot to mention, but i have the corrado rear subframe and the rear mount still had to be cut down.

      when using a g60 speedo cable, does it do anything funky with the vss stuff? like does it hamper the revs, cap the speed, anything wonky like that?

      i'm intending to use my original cluster with a futrell/MMP tach converter

      I checked futrell's site for this and I can only see the 1.8 & 2.0l converters on there. Anyone have a link? I am in need of one of these as well.

      i emailed futrell, they dont have them listed, but they DO have em. they are $300 us. canadians can get the same thing from MMP, same price


      but, yesterday i think i found a BETTER option
      email sales@fastforward.ca

      canadian based company, they can integrate harnesses and such, and he said for about 250 canadian, he can configure the tach AND set up a VSS sensor at the speedo (meaning, you need the g60 cable, BUT you can send the ecu a VSS signal)

      this looks the most promising, and its a DAMN good price

      can G60 spindles work with 'plus' control arms? and if you can what axles would be best

      Compliments of Jeffrey B:

      Here is some good Info that may help you guys Sort through some of the parts you can use.

      To keep your car 4 lug you can go a couple of different ways.
      1. Use the A3 ('93-99 Golf/Jetta) K frame with A-arms, axles, spindles, PS, etc. and add G60 or VR6 calipers, and G60 11.0" rotors. This will result in a little wider track on the front than what you have with A2 stuff on the car now. (this is what the white car had.
      2. Use the A3 or Corrado K-frame, but use A2 A-arms and axles. Use Corrado or A3 power steering rack with A2 tie rod assemblies. Use the A3 4 cyl. spindles, and Corrado G60 or Vr6 calipers, and G60 rotors. Use the A2 sway bar as well.

      The Corrado K-frame will sit the engine a little lower, and a little more level in the engine bay.

      To do the AC, you will need to pull the dash. This will also make it much easier to swap the pedal cluster. Pull the dash, and pull the Ac blowerbox out. exchange the R12 evaporator core out for an R134 one. Use the R134 expansion valve. Use the Corrado VR6 AC lines. You can use the Corrado VR6 or a regular A2 condenser. Use passat VR6 or Corrado VR6 cooling fans. If you use passat , you will have to trim the bottom of the fan shroud to fit the height of the G60 or Corrado Vr6 radiator that you will use.

      If you are buying suspension for the car, A3 4cyl stups work well in the A2's. The A3 is a heavier car, and the heavier VR6 motor makes up for the weight difference in the chassis of the cars.

      To hook up the AC, if you use a '92 Corrado for wiring it is a plug and play affair. If you use anything else , it will be a "get both bentleys out and compare affair."

      Here is a basic rundown on what you can use:

      front motor mount carrier - Passat VR6 or Corrado VR6

      K-frame -A3 4 cyl or 6 cyl, and Corrado VR6. (just remember that you have to use 6 cyl. A-arms with 6 cyl. axles, and vice versa.

      Rotors - Corrado G60 for 4 lug, and VR6 rotors for 5 lug.

      PS lines - VR6 A3, passat, or Corrado. Corrado VR6 work best.

      PS rack - A3 , 4cyl or 6, Corrado VR6 , or Passat VR6. Just remember that you will match up the tie rod assemblies with the A-arms that you are using.

      Spindles - A3 4 cyl., Late A2 with 10.1 brakes, Passat 16v, or Corrado G60 for 4 lug. Any thing VR6 for 5 lug.

      Calipers - G60 or VR6 (they are the same in 11.0" )

      Swaybar - match up the swaybar with the A-arms.

      Shifterbox - Corrado G60, anything VR6

      Pedalbox- Corrado (Vr6 or G60), Passat (16v or VR6)

      Brake Booster and Backing plate - Corrado G60 non ABS, or passat 16v

      Clutch slave and Master - Corrado G60 or VR6, Passat VR6 or 16v

      Instrument cluster - Early A2 with MFA (86-89 Golf 16v's, or 85-87 GTI or GLI 8v) (Have to make hybrid harness for it to work)

      Exhaust - TT for A2 VR6 conversions

      Rear Axle beam - Any A2 with rear discs, or A3, or Corrado.

      Gas tank and pump - Use the one in the car, or swap the one from your A3 or Corrado Donor car.

      Speedo Cable - Corrado G60

      My Auxilery Coolant Pump isn't coming on, nor are my fans. I've checked the fuses in the fan control module and the one in the fuse box and they are all good. I've done the tests in the Bentley and I get nothing. I'm thinking the FCM isn't getting power. The engine came from a 96 GLX and so did the wiring. Do these things go bad or is it possible I didn't hook something up? Any wiring I should specifically check other than what the Bently says? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

      I've got a complete MKIII OBDII GLX that was totaled (rearended)

      What parts would I need to swap into a MKII (I plan to use everything from the MKIII, dash, wiring, fuseblock, engine, 5 lug suspension. I see most parts need modification which I'm ok with, but is there anything I would need to source from a corrado/B3?

      so the only readon you go with the mk3 pedal cluster (if your not going abs) is for the clutch?

      I thought i read on here some where that you could buy a bracket or housing to convert the VR6 tranny?.

      ok I'm having some issues understanding the list on the first page.
      Need some clarification on the Front Cross members (radiator half)

      I have original A2 cross member, I have a A3 VR rad/rad fan assembly, and I also have a Passat 16v front cross member (rad)

      What are my options? or what should I go and buy?
      thanks


    26. 02-25-2005 10:40 AM #131
      you need the part with the motor mount from a corrado or passat VR6 or you need to use a solid front mount.

      the passat 16v radiator half will work very well with the MK3 VR6 rad/fan setup... it puts it in square across the car and gives you some extra engine clearance

      The engine and harness is out of a 97 jetta glx OBD II

      I need help with my mk2 VR6, I need to reconnect my both O2 sensors, the secondary air pump and the combi valve, I was just told that they were disconnected on my car, and I'm thinking about legalizing the car, so need to put those back, the problem is, I don't have those items, nor I think the wiring that goes to those items is there. I'll probably have to rewire it or something, I'll have to look a little further,

      I think I found the O2 sensor wires, but not sure which one goes to which O2 sensor, there are 2 stacks, but both are 5 wire, one goes to precat one post cat, but which is which?

      Does the wiring for the secondary air pump and combi valve come with all the other wires that come to engine and connect to it with a big round harness or they are seperate?

      I also need help on the canister, what carbo canister can I use? Can I use a canister off of a 92 8v mk2 gti on my VR6?

      are there any mods I need to do to the 16v cross member or will it just bolt in. Reason I'm asking I was looking at it and looks very different compared to a stock mk2 or corrado. Thank you

    29. 02-25-2005 03:03 PM #134
      you have to cut off the tow hook area and the same part on the other side, other then that it will fit right on top of the other half with no problems

      My original bolts bumper are too short, they do not reach the rail, do i need longer bolts? also noticed that the cross member has holes for the mk2 style rad (pegs on the rad) compared to the mk3 rad has holes. Can you give me some info on that.

      thanks


    31. 02-25-2005 07:00 PM #136
      Well... all I can say is it is not a direct it, nothing is when you are swaping parts that are not from the car originally.

      You just have to deal with the problems as they come up, you should not need longer bolts. As for the holes you just need to put bolts through the grommets on the MK3 rad and secure them from underneath with a nut.... again nothing is perfect, you have to figure it out but it is close

      Ok I'm missing a few things the reverse light switch wiring and the wiper motor wiring. I'm using a 97 passat engine harness and a 90 g60 headlight harness. Do I have to add these or am I missing something?
