This block repair kit is for Golf, Jetta, New Beetle, GTI, GLI, and all Audi TT that have the 1.8T Turbo gas engine. This kit also fits other transverse mounted 1.8T (or 20V non-turbo) cars including Seat, Skoda and other European VW and Audi cars like the Audi A3 and S3. The picture on the far right above is the type of damage this bracket fixes.

Kit comes only with hardware to attach the bracket to the engine. You will also need the
separate bolt kit available below for the engine mount bracket and engine mount. On all cars except for the Audi TT 225, the OE intercooler hose bracket will require modification as shown in this picture and in the YouTube video below to allow the use of this kit. We also highly recommend that you clean out the factory threaded holes in the engine block before mounting this fix due to the likelihood of rust being present in these threads (Use an M7 x 1.0 tap and an M8 x 1.25 bottoming tap).

US Shipping: USPS Priority Mail shipping is by far the best deal at $6.00 - $8.00 for a 2-4 day average delivery time. We ship from Texas.

International Shipping:
If your car is down and you need it fixed quickly we highly recommend selecting FedEx shipping which takes 2-4 days to arrive. Please note that there will be local taxes, customs, and brokerage fees payable upon delivery when using FedEx. If you have the luxury of being able to wait 1-4 weeks for delivery then we suggest choosing a USPS 1st Class Mail at around $16.00 - $23.00 as there are no brokerage fees charged when shipping with USPS. The 1st Class envelopes are usually delivered quietly in your mailbox.

Besides the pictures and video on this page, no other instructions are included with this kit.

Saved the day! January 30, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Western PA  
My 16 year old niece saved up her money and bought a 01 1.8t jetta with trashed head from a broken timing belt.  Nice uncle I am I said I'd fix it for her if she bought the car and parts.  Half way through the reinstall I realized the ear had broken off and is probably why the guy sold the car so cheap.  I was ready to cry and then I found this kit.....

That 16 year old niece.....she's still driving the car back and forth to school, she turns 21 in a few months!  I did have to put a new clutch in after they tried to teach my nephew how to drive stick though!

This product saved our engine. February 14, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Kansas  
First, hats off to Dieselgeek for making this product. We would have been in big trouble without it.

The ear of our block on our 1.8T 2001 New Beetle broke off after two bolts on the motor mount broke, and our VW dealer stated we needed a new motor. . . not so with this product!

We had a trusted local KS mechanic perform the repairs and they stated it's the first time they've used the product but that they really like it and thought it did a great job. And we're back on the road again. . . . so far so good.

Engine life-saver at a great price.

VanGogh! November 4, 2011
Reviewer: Steven Rodriguez from Grant Park, IL United States  
Just thought i'd share my experience with the VanGogh. First off, i'd like to thank DieselGeek for making this, its an absolute engine saver. The install can be a little tricky if you keep your motor mount block in place, but everything can be installed with the motor still in the car, no instructions are included, but its kinda self-explanitory. I will say if you do this, 100% get the bolts, the bolts they supply are 10.9 grade, our stock bolts are 8.8.

To sum it all up, this kit is 110% worth every penny, it'd cost 10x more to try and repair the block, and it'd probably crack within a year and break again.
