Closed. Parting 97 B4 Wagon

This is closed. Thanks to all that are keeping their B4s alive.

---
edit...23 Oct... Well, I hoped it would take a bit longer for this, but once I started pulling parts off the Passat I hit my landlord's radar. So...today the car left on the back of a truck. I have some parts remaining and I'll update the list.
Best offer plus shipping for anything you need.

I had a blue '97 B4V in San Antonio with a dead engine. The turbo's gone and coolant is disappearing, so it's not good.
Highlights - ready to ship:
Pierburg MAF - excellent condition; about 40K miles Attached to full airbox with metal snorkel tube. Box has three functioning 'snaps' - the 4th corner is secured with a screw.
Driver's side foglight - real Hella, not the Chinese version.
Injection pump PN 0 460 404 970. Rebuilt in Oregon 71,500 miles ago. It's always been fed from a Cat 2 micron fuel filter and always had AMSOIL fuel products. No biodiesel. A new rebuilt is about $1K, core charge is about $500. I figure this pump should be worth at least the core value as it should have about 200K miles left on its life. But along with the other parts, this is best offer.

Best offer for any/all.

Hi
I'm interested in the e-code and fog lights.
Are you selling injectors and ECU by chance? (Or whole head)
How much are you asking?
Thanks
Dan

I'm interested in the frond door handles and door latches. Also the front turn signals/fog assys. Are the E-codes glass or plastic? I'm interested too.

I'm not prepared to ship the entire head, but we can arrange something if you really need it. I have a slide hammer, though, and can pull the injectors.

Keep in mind that while they're Bosio nozzles, they've got more than 100K miles on them.


There's only one fog - a German Hella drivers-side light. The passenger side is a junk 'Chinese Hella' that's come apart inside.

Sorry, ecodes are gone. Turn signals/blanks are old and nasty - the car's got more than 410K miles on her. There's only one good fog - the driver's side. The passenger side is a cheap 'Chinese Hella' that has come apart inside. Not recommended.

I wouldn't sell the handles or latches to anyone I cared about. I highly recommend hitting Autohausaz or one of the group vendors for a set of aftermarket handles and gaskets.

Thank you for your service.

Interior Condition?
Rough, FG. I found it in NH after it had been 'rode hard and put up wet' - complete with water leaks and tons of dirt and dog hair. I bought it to be my work truck. The tan finish is coming off the plastic door handles, cloth is starting to let go on the door cards. The headliner is tight, but I don't know if it would survive a transplant.

It's rusty, leaking, and has lived a good long but hard life. It's really time for retirement.

Looking for pedal assembly, intercooler and a few sensors for swap. PM me. Dave
PM me a shopping list and we'll go from there. The pedal assembly and intercooler are here, along with all the intake tubing. The only bad sensor on the engine is the leaking oil pressure sensor.

Anyone care to offer price help? We have two folks interested in the injection pump. My goal is still 'best offer' but I think we'd all appreciate a sanity check. Thanks!

The pump was purchased from a club vendor after being rebuilt by the Bosch experts in Oregon (DFIS, I believe). Fresh rebuilt units are about $1K now. Is half that reasonable for a unit that's been fed AMSOIL-doped fuel through a Cat filter for 71,500 miles?

I sorta pulled $500 out of thin air as it's the core charge for this shop in Oregon for 0-460-404-970:

Received my gear from Andy as expected. Thanks!

I think I've seen used ones go for $350 with 120k plus miles, so I think $500 for a rebuilt from DFIS seems fine.

.
I have worked on both sets of door handles and would easily take a set of beat-up and worn-out OEM handles than the new and only found now CRAP handles any of the vendors sell. There is a huge difference between the two in construction and operation. As crappy as the OEM door handles are, the new CRAP ones are much worse.

Thanks everyone - this is closed.

There's one sale pending. I'll move the rest of the parts to ebay.
