Swapping a 5spd into my buddies car this weekend. Its a 2002 TDI. I have a parts car but it is a 2000 or 2001.

Does anybody know if the engine harness is interchangeable, apart from the 2 wire vs 4 wire glow plug harness?

I thought this might be easier and cleaner than messing around with the auto harness.

about ten times more work than altering the factory wiring....I can do the 5 speed swap wiring in under 30 minutes and it's clean.... besides that the 2000 and 2001 harness is very different than the 2002-2003 harness.... glow plug relay is under dash on the early harness, in the rain tray on the late harness .... just alter the wiring and save yourself needless headaches ....
