      Sure you can. Although let me clean my basement from the wires laying all around. I was extracting wires for few other projects (climatronic, headlight washers and inverter 115V) and there is a total mess.

      I stopped by today to ask about the tool I need, but they did not have one.

      I am looking for VW special tool T10107 to borrow for a day or less. If you have one, or know the place that have one please let me know. It is a very long (12-14") Allen M6 key to attach right axle flange in mk5 r32 to the differential.

      A bit more of homework: fuel tanks.

      FWD Golf 5:

      AWD Golf 5 (R32):




      I need to raise the rear or my car sometime soon and do the inspection of the space where the fuel tank is located...

      Thanks for the info.
      If you ever have a chance to take pictures under the car, I would be grateful. Also, the picture of the floor/chassis under the rear seats would be appreciated.

      I ordered the tool I needed:

      It goes deep :

      So the transfer case is finally attached according to specs: 4 bolts M16, 40Nm and 1 bolt inside Allen M6, 33Nm.


      I have also attached Haldex to the subframe:


      In a mean time I found the auto-leveling sensor I got with the tranny:


      Now shopping for front axles and shaft...

      Not going to fit in the back, if the Golf/Rabbit platform is any indication.

      The R32 has a completely different spare tire area compared to a GTI/Rabbit. R32 has a smaller spare and shallower tire area, so there's actually less cargo room in an R32's hatch.

      This is all done in order to push the floor up higher, so the more complex rear end + Haldex + split gas tank can fit.

      If the Jetta TDI is at all like the Golf in this respect, you're going to run into problems when you try to bolt it all up.

      All of this aside - I love your project page linked in your sig. The wiring pinouts for the compass module will be helpful as I want to add one to my MkV R32 which supposedly doesn't have the harness plug in the headliner where it belongs on a Golf...

      Yes thats true. I have also smaller trunk in my TDI. You can see that from my linked pictures

      I hope that the trunk of jetta will be ok.

      I am aware of that. The plan for the weekend is to rise the rear of the car and do all the measurements.

      This is the picture I have taken when I was installing R32 rear sway bar in my Jetta. It seems there is enough space over the rear part of the sub-frame to accommodate haldex.

      If you look at For Sale stuff, you can find OEM compass wiring harness for sale. It might need to be extended for R32 purposes, but it is a good starting point.

      Little update: I got the rear brake pipe today. Funny story is no VW in NA uses this line, only Audi. There was a bit of confusion at the dealership, but the order went through.

      I am hoping the next thing I post here will be pics of stuff from EU...

      wow just amazing.. maybe I missed it.. but could you do a full parts list of items needed for this swap? I got a 2.0T jetta.. i guess our rides are the same except the gear ratio's..

      There is no such list yet. The reasons are as follows:
      1. It will be extensive to list all the parts one by one
      2. I still do not know all the parts that need to be swapped, e.g. I recently found out that 4Motion ABS module uses different duo/multiple sensor module.
      3. It sounds impossible, but not all the parts are listed in ETKA, e.g. I could not find PN for oem exhaust for EU-spec Golf Variant 4M.

      I know Juha Kankkunen. I used to watch WRC when I was in EU.

      There are some excellent pictures on his website.

      BTW The only words I got from the clips were Haldex, Torsen and ESP ...

      He says: Torsen is the best.
