I was sold a 02E 301 103 G from a junk yard, they said it would fit a 2006 jetta tdi. I was wondering if anyone can't point me to the right part number to confirm which transmission I have. I looked it up on ebay and it said that that part number 02E301103G fits Passat Eos and CC. Hopefully they are interchangeable or it looks like they will have to swap for correct one or find another one.

You need to find the 3 letter code of your transmission which is usually under the mat in the trunk or the spare tire well. The engine code and the transmission code is on the sticker i.e., BRM (engine) then HXU or HQN (trans).

If your car is a TDI and they are giving you something that will fit an EOS or CC then it is doubtful that it is the right part since those cars did not come with diesel engines in the US. The transmissions themselves are stamped rather inconveniently under the adapter plate that the trans mount attaches to.

If it came from a gasser it may fit but the gearing will be wrong.

Can I find the HXU or HQN on the transmission somewhere because the cars that the transmission came from is no longer available to check the trunk codes. I bought two of these transmissions one with 40k other with 60k from a reputable salvage yard in So Cal so I'm sure they would let me exchange for right ones.

If you re-read my post you will see where it is stamped on the transmission.

Ok thanks, I'll turn the transmission upside down and take a look at the code to determine what vehicle it came from and report back.

It is not on the bottom. It is on the top side under the bracket next to the transmission mount. You will have to support the transmission from underneath and remove the 4 bolts that mount the bracket. Then lower the transmission a bit so you can see under the bracket or detach it from the chassis mount and slide it to the side . Didn't I tell you how inconvenient it was?
If your trans is dirty and corroded you might have a hell of a time trying to read it. That is the only place that I know of where the trans is marked with the code. I don't think that it is identified in the software if you to call up the trans controller with VCDS.
If you still don't understand where it is I can get a pic of it.

The transmissions are out of the car and in storage right now. I'll take a look soon to see what I can find. If you could post a picture that would be informative.

There are just too many to list....
It is UNDER the mount bracket. It will be a 3-letter code, HXU or HQN.

Take the four bolts that hold the mount bracket on to the top of the transmission case off, and it will be under there.

I'll take a picture of it, I think those were scratched off or removed. I'm going to call the yard and see if they can just do a return or exchange. Can anyone post a pic of the 3 letter code on transmission to get a idea? I just looked up the listing on car-part.com and the yard I bought both transmissions from has those two codes oilhammer mentioned so that is good news.

It is etched on that flat spot shaped like a rectangle atop the case, right in the middle of the four big threaded holes where the mount bracket goes. It is pretty faint, sometimes cleaning it with some Scotchbrite pad helps.

By chance do you see the spot you're talking about in the picture on the craigslist link I posted? It looks like its not even there, like it was scratched off. I did see on the other trans, it's real hard to read but it looks like the other one w/ 60k is a HXU.

Yes, I see the rectangle spot clearly in that picture. If the etched in number has been scratched off (I have no idea why it would have been), then the only other way to ID the transmission is with the M-unit part number, as those are trans-code specific. You can also have the dealer tell you the code by the VIN of the car it came from, if you have that. Beyond that, not much you can do.

I have never seen an 02E DSG ID that I was unable to read.

Oilhammer, where would I find the M-unit part number? Would be nice to know.
