My B4V is in the body shop (finally!) getting repairs to front end damaged in accident. For parts, the body shop developed a list of parts 4-5 pages long. Parts counter at my local VW dealer was able to get a few parts. Next we went to Harbourview VW in Western Canada and we were pleasantly surprised at how many parts they are able to source from VW Canada, and also from VW Germany and Classic VW Germany.

I have a few parts in my stash of spares (e-code headlights, foglights, etc)

The remaining list below is the "unobtanium" list, so far. Does anyone among us here have any they can sell me please? Request you send PM.

FRONT BUMPER - 3A0 807 103 B GRU
SPOILER – 3A0 805 903 B B41
TRIM – 3A0 941 780
TRIM – 3A0 941 779
BRACKET – 3A0 807 133 D
TRIM - 3A0 853 661 A
PROP ROD – 3A0 823 363
SUPPORT – 357 804 629

Just to make it easier I've relisted some of them with their common names.

TRIM - 3A0 853 661 A - grill surround
PROP ROD – 3A0 823 363 - hood support
SUPPORT – 357 804 629 - forward fender vertical support
TRIM – 3A0 941 780 - reflector insert R
TRIM – 3A0 941 779 - reflector insert L
BRACKET – 3A0 807 133 D - bumper bracket - left front

This way you can more easily figure out if you have something Elias needs.

Found an NOS bumper in the UK but lady seller does not have a way to package and ship. Will need a freight company that can package, collect and then ship the bumper.

Some things like radiator and condensor I'd recommend trying to find a new one on ebay/Rock Auto/ FCPEuro etc....

I took the liberty of cleaning up your parts list a little.

The condenser might be available new from VW although I would probably go with a different source because of cost. Same can be said for the radiator also. The cooling fan assembly can also be gotten new from secondary non-VW source but I would try the used market first. Be sure you don't get one from a VR6 car, the connector is different. Also, the VR6 radiator is the same size and has same connections, but it mounts differently and takes a different lower support than 4 cylinder (tdi or gas).

Keep in mind that this is being covered by my insurance company.

A bit more on-line searching and ECS Tuning shows the front bumper as available:
https://www.ecstuning.com/Search/SiteSearch/3A0_807_103_B_GRU/

Between ECS Tuning and Jim Ellis, the list is almost all available. Hopefully it is not a case of old web pages that they have not updated.

SPOILER – 3A0 805 903 B B41 (on order Jim Ellis VW)
BRACKET – 3A0 807 133 D (on order Jim Ellis VW bumper bracket )
COWL – 3A0 121 207 F (on order ECS Tuning)
PROP ROD – 3A0 823 363 (on order ECS Tuning )
SUPPORT – 357 804 629 (on order ECS Tuning)
CONTAINER – 330 422 371 (ordered NOS OEM -- European ebay seller)

We had replaced the condenser and other radiator parts only 3 - 4 months before the accident. I think we used Niessens. Should not be hard to replicate and order same parts.

Please do let me know if you decide to go to the JY. As I suspected, so far, Jim Ellis VW came back and cancelled my order for two parts their website showed as available.

Will see if ECS Tuning will fill their orders or tell me they have not updated their website.

If Ellis can't get it then ECS won't be able to either, ECS is just plain bad about keeping their parts availability status up to date.

Yes sir! today ECS Tuning canceled order for 3 parts they show as available on their web site with usual excuse. Our supplier no longer stocks, we did not update our web page etc.

I think I do, but if I remember right the tanks may need to be sealed. I may know where there is another one on a car that was recently totalled, but it was hit on the other side. I'll check tomorrow.

Any chance of having an intercooler in your stash? Found only one seller on line and they don't ship to the US.


https://www.b-parts.com/pt/store/pr...1989-1990-1991-1992-1993-1994-1995-1996-1997/
If the other options don't pan out you might try this. On car-part there is one in VA, at the following, but it might be an old listing:

1997 Passat - G & B Auto Parts, Inc. USA-VA(Floyd) 1-540-745-7401

The price is not listed, just give them a call. The inventory number for the car is 3611. It's worth a shot.

The cooler is exclusive to the B4 (and some B3 in Europe) so they are somewhat rare.

I have a complete 96 b4 tdi that should have every thing you need not to far from you that has a bad clutch, you just have to take the whole car. Price negotiable. It's the one in my signature.

Mark- I made road trip today and delivered the parts I pulled at junkyard that TDIL3dad needed- the only thing on his wish list I didn't get was the TDI grille badge and intercooler, as the car I pulled parts from was a VR6... his intercooler looked ok, it was still on his car and I didn't see any dents or leaks out of it...
