• 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! :)

Ya , they were called sealed beam headlights , when the filament burned out - about the same time the lens got sand blasted by road dirt etc.
They also never leaked & killed electronics of cars , I had many customers that had the plastic headlight leak and the costs quickly could get to 1-2 thousand dollars .
Mostly on American cars - parts made in china ;(

Not sealed beams, there used to be glass lenses available for Mk4 Jetta headlights. Still have one on the driver side of Donna’s car. They don’t appear to be around anymore

There is a guy in the Ontario forum section who has a couple of left over brand new glass lenses from a group buy a couple of years ago. He posted a while ago about still having them and willing to sell. I will try and find the post. Or search Ontario section.

I would be in, but I have been looking for a while and none of the usual vendors have them.

I texted the # that was in his post but didn’t receive a response. I’d be interested in a set as well.

Did you PM him? Place a post replying to his post in the Ontario for sale section and see if he responds. Maybe someone near him might tell him to log on and see the messages.

I tried to but since I’m a basic member it wouldn’t let me. At least that’s what I believe.

I've heard you can buy just the glass lens off ebay.
But you have to glue them to your old headlights.

I got a few different glass lens for my mk4 Golf in the past. VXTuning has a decent price on the lens for mk4. You have some work in front of you to make the swap. But totally worth the effort.

Apparently one can get the Golf glass lenses fairly easily. The Jetta ones are hard to come by nowadays.
