    Thread: Help a novice? Skid/belly plate; engine covers

    1. 08-01-2012 07:35 PM #1
      Hi, thanks in advance. I'm having trouble zeroing in on exact part numbers and knowing the best places to shop for them. Part of the problem is terminology: skid plate? belly plate? engine cover? splash guard? v-belt cover? Aghhhhh!
      If the picture below is, indeed, my car, I think I need parts 1 & 3 (driver's side guard and...skid plate?). I have a new body style '99 Jetta GL, 5-speed manual.
      Here's the picture (top one):

      Every part I find seems to start with "1J08252," but the last two numbers and the letter are different. I don't know if this depends on model or engine type or what.
      My car is doing pretty well, at just over 100k miles, but I'm not in the fancy skid plate category. Just something that will work, for not too much money.
      So, if anyone out there could help with part numbers or advice on where to buy, it would be greatly appreciated.
      (Also, I did some searching on here, but without much luck. Don't hate me if I missed something obvious!)
      Thanks,
      Ryan

      I see at ECS you have a genuine VW package, and a OE Aftermarket package that is cheaper but looks like its made from a different kind of plastic with a texture. Is there a big difference in quality? Which would you recommend?

      Each kit is made with quality parts -

      It will come down to customer preference and pricing. I would recommend upgrading to stg 2 and get everything at once!
