Default 97 Jetta Engine removal how to?

Hello all, new to the forum looked through the 63 pages of information but did not find an article relating to engine removal.

I bought a 97 Jetta 1.9 tdi last week that has a rod problem will be looking for a replacement block. I was wondering if there is a how to with pics for an engine removal?

Any help or links would be appreciated used the search feature but came up empty handed.


Sorry I am new to front wheel drives, my other toy's are a 38 dodge pickup, 45 wc52 4x4 and a 55 m 37. New to diesels.

Not to difficult, and quite similar to the B4. Look in the 'Conversions' posts for some idea of what's involved.
Basically drain fluids, disconnect electrical harnesses, disconnect shift controls, disconnect exhaust, disconnect drive axles from transmission (easier in my opinion to remove the engine and trans as a unit, separate and reattach out of the car), remove motor mount bolts, lift.
If the quantity of carbonic acid increases in geometric progression,
the augmentation of the temperature will increase nearly in arithmetic progression.

Thanks Lug-Nut, for pointing me in the right direction. I started by taking pictures today of the wirres and throtle cables and such. I will go look in the conversions section as you mention.
