If it’s just the large fan the ac will still work, you could just unplug the big fan so it won’t try and run. As long as the small one is working. I wouldn’t run it like that for any length of time.

My big fan is not currently working I need to replace it but up north here I don’t run the ac much and it’s almost at the end of the season for that anyway. I’ll fix it when I have something else to replace in that general area.

Similar to you, I just bought a 2005 Jetta wagon TDI after owning a mk6 Golf TDI. The mk4 isn’t as quick nor does it handle as well as the mk6. I’m curious to hear your thoughts on the Malone stage 1.5 tune and suspension upgrades, in comparison to the mk6. Also, did the Malone tune with dynamic ERG improve fuel economy?

The Malone Stage 1.5 is great - however the clutch does slip if I really get on it. Owain told me this before I bought the tune and I knew that it might happen. In daily driving it hasn't been an issue and I haven't been in a situation where it's slipped in several months. As for the dynamic EGR I haven't noticed any increase in fuel mileage but not having so much EGR certainly can't be bad for the car.

In hindsight (being 20/20) I probably would have gone with a different suspension setup. This car wasn't supposed to be my DD for this long. it was supposed to become a rehab project over this summer. But life took an unexpected left turn about this time last year (aka job loss) and my plans for the car we altered greatly. For daily driving I would get something close to the stock setup if you're looking at a suspension refresh. Many here like the Koni setup.

As you said, the Mkiv platform is nothing like the Mkvi (especially going from a Golf to a long roof Jetta) and I really had to change my idea of what the driving experience would be. I can't push the wagon like I could my Golf (which was on stock suspension but UHP A/S tires). Currently I drive 120 miles roundtrip to work on some nice smooth roads so the suspension I selected, though less then ideal is fine for now. If I had rougher roads to drive I would probably be looking to change it already.

I want to get the Malone Stage 1.5 tune along with an upgraded clutch. Cascade German sells upgraded DMF OEM clutch kits that they claim will hold 273 ft/lbs of torque at the crank.

I'm also thinking about buying the wagon specific H&R sport springs and a set of Koni Yellow adjustable dampers. I've read and been told that the H&R sport springs are compliant and comfortable along with slightly firmer suspension support. Smooth yet still reducing body roll and dive. The H&R sport springs claim a drop of 1.5"F/1.4"R.

That's the same LUK 17-050 many vendors (including us) sell. It's a good clutch, but it's not an upgrade over stock. However, with a Malone 1.5 tune it should be OK.
