I have a 2001 cabrio and i am in need of a hood, radiator core, and radiator. My question is what models are interchangeable. i know previously golf parts were the same.
Everything I've ever read on the subject says: Bumpers, bumper covers, trunk lid, grille, hood, and fenders are Cabrio-specific. These same Golf hard-top & Jetta parts will not fit on the Cabrio without modification. Headlights, side-marker lights and side-repeater lights are the same as the Golf IV hard-tops.
The Cabrio hood is a 1E0------ part, while the Golf is is a 1J0------ part; if the Cabrio shared the same hood, it would also use the 1J0 part number.
