carefully note that your engine code matches. These plugs are only
correct for the "PD" Pumpe Duse engine. Be especially careful on the
2005 Jetta, where they only fit early 2005 examples.
cars originally had ceramic glow plugs. Ceramic plugs have a nasty habit
of breaking whereupon a portion of the plug falls into the cylinder
often causing major engine damage. If your car has the original ceramic
plugs we would advise removing them and replacing them with these steel
sheath plugs as soon as possible. Because steel plugs have different
heating characteristics, an engine computer re-coding is required when
installing steel plugs. If you car has already been converted to steel
plugs (as very many have), then these plugs are a drop-in replacement.
Remember, it is very important that your computer be coded for the glow
plugs you have - if you have steel plugs, you must have the coding for 5
volt steel plugs, if you have ceramic plugs, you must have the coding
for ceramic plugs - otherwise very rapid glow plug failure can result.
If your car already has steel plugs then you should be safe to assume
your computer is coded for them.
Note: Our vehicle application is
for USA market vehicles, these plugs also fit many more vehicles not
listed that were sold in European markets.
