    Thread: 2000 Jetta 1.8T Bottom End Rebuild

      I am ready to pull the drive train of this Jetta. Have a number of questions.
      But let me get a few pictures out of the way first. I am sure many of you have done this before. This is for the benefit of those who haven't.
      The main wiring harness connectors are between the windshield and the hood. I didn't know how to remove the plastic panel covering the area. Then I found just pull hard. It came off.

      Of course the windshield wipers have already been removed. The two main wiring harness connectors are in the center right in front of the windshield.

      The relays are connected to the main wiring. The wiper motor and linkages are in the way. So out they go.
      The relays are inside a box with a plastic cover beneath the wiper motor and linkages.

      Now my questions..
      I fount two engine lift attachment points. They are both on the same side (front of the engine). Is that right? One is cast with the cylinder head.

      Another is a metal bracket bolted to the head.

      Also is there a dealer mail order source for VW? Also is there electronic part catalog online? One plastic parts I removed was damaged. This is the plastic trim next to the intercooler. I would like to look up the parts number and order from the dealer. I don't think this part is available from regular parts outlet.

      Affixed to the turbocharger oil return pipe is a label written by the dealer mechanic "#3 crank and mains + thrust bearings gone, head is okay but dry no oil". The dealer just hand tightened the oil pan bolt, resulting in a pool of oil on my garage floor.

      A few pictures taken while pulling the engine.
      The engine on the hook on its way up.

      I had to cut two wires or the the engine can't be removed. These two wires are on the passenger side branching off of the wires to the O2 sensor.

      The engine out of the car, still in mid-air.

      A few shots of the empty engine bay.

      Another view of the engine in mid-air.

      The drive train set on the floor.

      I guess there is not a dealer parts source with electronic parts catalog online?
