I'm in the same boat. I got a 1J1 422 105 A from partsgeeks.com. VW dealer says it crosses to a 2008 passat. WTF? Who's right and who's wrong? I have a 02 GTI 337.
I have a problem with my 2001 Gti. A while ago it started to leak power steering fluids through the rubber protection on steering rack. Replacing the rubber didn't solve the problem and now I'm facing the fact I need to buy a new steering rack. I went to my local dealer and asked the price for a new one and almost couldn't believe it, EUR 706! Therefore I decided to start looking for a used one from Ebay, but here is the tricky part. I got a several different part numbers from the dealer, but I found only few matches from ebay.de and these were pretty expensive as well.
The question I'm looking for an answer is, does the part number 1J1 422 105 fit my car? With this particular number I could find many affordable parts.
The part numbers my local dealer gave to me are:
1J1 422 075C
1J1 422 063M
1J1 422 062D
1J1 422 060K
1J1 422 061S
1J1 422 061F
I would appreciate any help with this matter
