Custom made by MTC (OE Supplier to VW) this oil pan is half aluminum & half steel. This is a recommended repair for all cars with damaged oil pans. Of course it can be used to replace a perfectly good oil pan also. The steel lower pan can take more abuse than the aluminum one. The aluminum oil pan shatters once it's been hit. The steel has the ability to absorb more impact than the aluminum version.
FITS: All Mk4 Golf/Jetta 2.0L 8v and 1.9L TDi*
NOTE: This pan is considered a retrofit upgrade as it may interfere with and require moving the power steering line and fitment is not guaranteed.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTE: We recommend this item be separated and re-sealed yourself between the steel and aluminum section of the pan! The factory doesn't always do a sufficient job and leaks may occur if you do not re-seal on your own!
