• 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! :)

I know there's at least a dozen of these floating around in our collective garage. Anyone willing to part with theirs? Need one for my GF's passat, since hers is not happy. Need it to be in good shape, both mechanically and cosmetically.

please email me if you have one - markblitzer{*A*T**}yahoo

cheers.

David - find the code, and I'm your man. If it came out of your car, I think you can call a dealer with the serial # of the radio and your Vin#, and they'll give you the code.

BB - I have yet to find a reliable source that can accurately speak to compatability between the monsoon HU and non-monsoon systems. I've heard that it won't work, and I've heard that it will. I've searched here, but to no avail... if you have any insight, please let me know.

Well, I know that the Monsoon head unit plugged right into my A3--all I needed was the wiring harness from the head unit to the amp and I would have had a Monsoon system ready to go...

I'm pretty sure the Monsoon input from the head unit is high level or speaker level. It is not low-level like the OEM DSP.

So, it seems to me that is should work, but I haven't tried and don't know first hand.

Maybe it's time for a science experiment....


BB - can you email me a pic of the back of the monsoon unit, and one of the sticker on top with the pinouts? Regrettably, my bentley got sold with my TDI.

Alternatively, if David can come up with the code, i'll just take the easy way out.

Well...I'd love to get you the pic, but it will have to wait--the radio is in Portland, and I am at school in Utah. I leave a week from today though for Thanksgiving break...
So for now try to take the easy way out, or else I can take care of it in a week...

No, I need one from an 99.5-02 A4 or a B5. Thanks though. Appreciated.

See my posts... I have one out of a 98.5. It worked perfectly with a 99+ CD changer that I installed, so I think it's the "new style." $20 plus shipping (unless it sells with the changer that I am also offering for sale), but the volume knob is ever-so-slightly quirky (see my post for explanation). And yes, I have the code. I had to call my local dealer for it, but they provided me the code for free.

since it's a 98.5 (A3) I assume the illumination is green not blue/red. Also - needs to be all nice and minty, so whatever the volume knob issue is, it's not for me. Sorry.

There's someone over on VWVortex who is looking for this radio though - there's a WTB in the head units section of the classifieds. Check it out. Cheers.

As long as it's nice and minty, I'll happily take it! (I trust you have the code and such)

I've got the radio that I pulled from my 2000 Jetta available, with key code. If interested, PM with an offer. It was in excellent condition when I took it out and has been stored ever since - thinking that I'd include it if and when I ever sold the car.

I have my soon to be old radio with the code, the only issue is the faceplate hangs front a bit. I do know it makes for easy access to remove it without radio keys since the faceplate is easy to pop off. I also cleaned it with contact cleaner since the PO decieded to spill his drink on it numerous times. Works great maybe a little wear on the buttons and the 6 disc changer in the back is yours if you want it too. That I think is dirty as it refuses to read any cd's after you change them untill the 4 or 5 try of turning the unit on & off. Not looking to make a whole lot of money on them so take them from me CHEAP!

really looking for something in better shape than what you described, but if you can send me some pics, i'll give you an offer.

I'm actually (bizarrely enough) in mozambique right now, and won't be back in the good ol' USA until next week when this conference wraps up and I brave the 20 hour flight home, so no huge rush on the pics.

Thanks for the honest disclosure, though. Really appreciate it.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

And dieselnewbie - i sent you a PM, but didn't get a reply. Would like to hear what you thought of my offer.

Cheers.

What is the "volume knob issue" that you are referring to? Is it a wacky volume control? If it is, how do you fix it?

the user whose post I was replying to said that there was some sort of problem with the volume knob on the radio he mentioned he was selling. Hence my reply. I don't know of any generalized problems with radios from the 98.5 era.

I was wondering because the radio in my '98 Jetta has a flaky volume control. You never know which way the volume will go, no matter which way you turn the knob. Short of replacing the radio, I don't know how to fix it...
