• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

Sent my money for the .260s.
As mentioned earlier, if you have the wherewithal to top up the PayPal send to ~$350 (or more), I think that'd be a nice gesture to thank @burpod for his time and effort in putting this together.
Oh I didn't know you were in on this, is the Canada order happening right away too then? @CanadianALH

Paypal sent for .260 injectors. They are for the 2003 wagon, which looks like it has a square plug on number 3.
If that sounds wrong let me know.
I haven't seen both types of injectors and am not sure what a D-shaped plug looks like.

Thanks for the pictures, if it's supposed to be D-shaped, I'll unplug it and take a better look.

You can tell the difference without unplugging it. The D shape has a typical plastic lock, the rectangle plug has wire handles that you squeeze to unlock it

i much prefer the older square style with the wire clips. they never break. crappy new d-shaped connectors always breaking... especially when it's cold out and you're having to fix something. fingers freezing as you make swear words and try to unclip a connector and then it breaks.. and now you have a 2nd problem... ugh, dumb

No doubt, I have a small jar of tiny zip ties, which are also fun to fumble with freezing fingers.
Something I always did in the shop because of all the salt and oxidation was to clean connectors and work a little bit of dielectric grease into them. I still do it, they come apart so much easier. It’s a myth that dielectric grease causes bad connections. It may find them though.

that grease will most definitely cause poor connections - IF its on the actual terminal itself - seen it happen numerous times, even with log data to prove it :) BUT - dielectric grease/lube on the mating parts and around the seal is a very GOOD idea - helps prevent seals from binding/leaking and can keep salty corrosion/grime from freezing the connector bits together which then lead to breaking upon removal

You would have to prove that to me with more than just a statement

years ago when i had put a bunch of dielectric grease on all my terminals (before realizing that's not what its for), i had some quirky electrical issues/codes that popped up over time. once i blew all that crap out with compressed air + brake cleaner, never again had any of those electrical quirks.

a few months ago i was working with someone who was having issues, and i suggestd check/clean all the IP/crank/3rd injector connections, which he did, but then he slathered the 3rd injector terminals with dielectric grease. we were checking injector balance - previously, they were normal looking, but not super great. with the grease in there, his injector balance were wayyyy out of whack. after i told him to clean all that out with brake clean/compressed air. injector balance went back to reading pretty normal.

dielectric grease is an insulator, it stands to reason that if you cover electrical connections with it, it would cause problems....

right, it's probably not the best for it, but does a better job of getting the dielectric grease out than contact cleaner, so for a onetime thing, i think is ok :) normally i would use contact cleaner for regular cleaning of terminals

Silicon grease aka dielectric grease is an insulator.

I realize that. If there’s a loose connection it could definitely cause an issue. I’ve never thought of it causing resistance as long as the connection is tight…but maybe. It’s never caused a problem for me that I’ve ever noticed, I’ve been doing for a long time

Silly question, but these are for 4 complete injectors, not just the nozzles correct? and how much of a difference in power will it be since i'm running stock VNT15?

2003 w/ 5 speed.

thanks in advance!

PS when is the deadline?

I sent you a pm, double checking this is still open before I send money. I’m interested in a set of injectors
