    Thread: Harmonic Balancer

    1. 03-11-2017 04:31 PM #1
      1997 VW Golf Mk3
      2.0
      5 Speed


      Anyone now a source for a new Harmonic Balancer. None of the local places have them and can't even order them. VW will be happy to order me one for $558 plus tax.

      I've tried
      German Auto Parts
      O'Reilleys
      PepBoys
      Autozone

      I don't see any listing on that site for a Harmonic Balancer and none of the parts look like mine. I will however contact them tomorrow and see if they have one.

      Those are aftermarket pulleys, you can purchase the crank pulley separately. If you want an oem "harmonic balancer" check eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/191917757471

      Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I actually saw the one on Ebay after I started this thread. I am hoping to find a new OEM part but if I can't a used one will have to do. Don't like putting a same vintage used part that may be as bad or worse than the one I already have. I checked Ebay.de and Amazon.de and couldn't find anything there either. Some auto parts sites can't even find a harmonic balancer listing for this car even with a search. I'm wondering if it is listed as 3 seperate parts and you have to assemble it or if you just basically buy the section that you need.

      I used to work in VW parts and it was nice to have ETKA for finding things like this. That being said, I still have my connections and am sure I could find you an oem part for a lot less then a retail customer walking in if interested.

      Very interested, like I said I can't even find one in Germany. I have a co-worker starting vacation in 3 days, traveling to France, Germany and Egypt. He offered to find me one while he's there and ship it over but who knows how long it would take with customs. Apparently Golf's are big in Egypt.

      That's the best option IMO. No sense in buying a new one.
