Default Zerostart install

Picked up a Temro Zerostart inline coolant heater today. Just wondering if anyone has a parts list of stuff I need to install it. Or better yet a link to some install pics.

Did you get it from FrostHeater? His kit comes with everything but tools. Including Install Pics and Instructions.

Got it from Gregg Distributors (greggdistributors.ca) for $70 CAD. It would cost me close to $150 CAD to get it across the border. Just need the right hoses and misc parts. Anyone know the Gates,Dayco,Goodyear part numbers for the hoses?

Here's mine, Zerostart Series 8000 750 W. I used 1-elbow NAPA ECR hose PN 11025 and 2-worm gear type hose clamps.
The hose is installed on the supply side of the OHE. This way the oil in the OHE gets warm up first.



The NAPA store where I got the the hose, had very limited heater hoses. So, I got what looked to be the best fit, since I had very limited time to install the coolant heater. I'm planning redesign and use other better design hose in the near future.

The equivalent other hoses to NAPA ECR PN 11025 are as follows:
AC Delco PN 14155S
CarQuest s/a Gates PN 19025
Dayco PN 71877
Gates PN 19025
Good Year PN 63348
Motorcraft PN KM-4990

HeavyG,

I'm sorry for the late reply. My wife just came home and I have to do pics compression in her laptop using MSO'07-the only tool I have. I hope those pics will help you.

Default Frostheater install

Okay, I have just finished getting the Frostheater kit installed.

If I had known upfront, I would have skipped it altogether.

WHAT A PAIN! The destructions that came w/ the kit were essentially useless, and the B&W pics were even worse. If I hadn't asked a VW mech about it forst, I never would have gotten this done nor would I have even known where to install it.

The hoses supplied were wrong lengths, and bent the wrong way. Sorry, but I cannot recommend this kit.

We'll see if it works right now!

Had the Frostheater installed on the 09 TDI...Looks like the best $115 I paid to have it...installed.

Hooked it up last night with a timer for 3 hours before leaving for work. Started the TDI up and the temp guage went right to 190 degrees...instant heat.

Started pulling away and it dropped to 165 degrees, but within 5 minutes back up to 190.

So far very happy with it.

Where did you get your kit from? I got one about a month ago. Took 20 minutes to install and was absolutely perfect. Fit like a glove, and works flawlessly. I got mine from FrostHeater.

... pretty easy seems to be the general consensus aswell...

There are different kits for different model years as specified on the website, maybe you ordered the wrong one.

Mine went in fairly easy (and the NB is tight). It was harder getting the battery out of the way, but once done, there was plenty of room and the heater went in quick.

Nice having warm air blowing right away. The temperature does dip down for a few minutes like MPBsr said, but it's still way better than not plugging in.

X2! Best add-on that I've bought for my Jetta. Can't beat the kit from Frostheater (with the necessary parts and pics, and even phone help from Terry if you're lost.) I also paid to have it installed. Money well spent. You get what you pay for.
