Default block heater cord

Hello everyone,

My girlfriend drove away this morning with the block heater cord still attached to my month old TDI.

Now, I can't find it anywhere on the street, but the good news is I can't find the cord itself. :banghead:

The part number for the cord is 5K0-965-539. Keffer VW has them at 115,50$ US, plus whatever they'll charge for shipping to Canada.

Does anybody have other options, suppliers, etc., that might have a better deal?

It's the cord that plugs here:



and one of the ends looks like this:



thanks!

Did you get the cord installed or do it yourself. I haven't even looked into this yet but I need to.

All Canadian Jettas and Passats come with the coolant heater, plug and cord installed, it's standard equipment.

I'm guessing we have to special order here in the states. I may have to check into that on my next service.

I didn't see that as an option in the US or I would have ordered it!

After you buy a new cord, you can use it to strangle her.

Default Coolant heater panel and cord

I am from Northern Illinois, Libertyville. The VW dealer tells me he cannot get the cord or the panel that the cord plugs into. Can anyone help me with either a USA dealer that is more accomodating or a Canadian dealer that will ship to the USA. I have a Frost Heater but want to replace the fog light panel wo a coolant heater plug with a left hand fog light panel that has the plug in it. I have the Frost Heater already. Is the cable shown in this thread from the electrical outlet to the panel of from the heater to the panel, I could not understand where the cable goes.

Cable end shown above plugs into the fog light panel, the other end is a regular 3 prong 110v plug.

Default Thank you ng3

Now if I can just find where to buy the cable and the panel ?

That panel will eliminate me having to open hood and disconnect the Frost Heater for my wife, I use to have a very nice 2012 Jetta, now my wife has it.

First post: The part number for the cord is 5K0-965-539. Keffer VW has them at 115,50$ US, plus whatever they'll charge for shipping.

Checked now and it's $123, can't find a part number on the Fog light assembly with the plug, maybe it's just a trim piece.

my wife did the same while back. I now wrap the cord around the drivers mirror so she remembers to unplug before she leaves.
