VanGogh Broken Engine Block Saver for 2.0 Gas Engine


Save Your Engine!

Does your 1998 - 2006 Golf/Jetta/Beetle or 2011-2015 Jetta S VW non-turbo 2.0 gas engine have a broken engine block ear behind the timing belt? Is your mechanic telling you that you need a new engine? Our block repair bracket solves your problems and will make the engine mounting system stronger than stock. This kit will save you a lot of time, money and an engine! Many cars have been totaled by insurance companies and many engines have been exchanged simply because this mounting ear had broken off. Our repair will last forever!

Installation: The repair bracket can be easily installed with the engine in place. We highly recommend that you first make sure that the 7mm and 8mm threads for the mounting holes in the engine block are clean before mounting this fix due to the likelihood of rust being present in these threads. You can try to thread the included bolts into the holes first to see if cleanup is needed. If necessary, use an M7 x 1.0 tap and an M8 x 1.25 tap to clean out the threads. The bracket should be fastened to the back of the block with the middle M7 bolt and the M8 bolt. The upper M10 long bolt should be threaded into the repair bracket last and tightened fully before fully tightening the other two bolts.

Please note that this kit comes only with hardware to attach the repair bracket to the engine. You must also replace every one of the engine mount bracket bolts that are contained in the separate bolt kit available here. (Bolt kit does not fit '11-'15 Jetta S.) We offer the bolts as a separate kit since most high quality timing kits like ours will include them. 

Beyond the pictures on this page, no other instructions are included with this kit.

US Shipping:  We offer FedEx 2nd Day for just $7.99 and it will deliver on Saturdays, too! Overnight delivery is available as well.  We ship Monday through Friday from Colorado.

International shipping:  In these uncertain times we offer the slightly more expensive but much faster FedEx International Economy® service. FedEx will likely collect local taxes upon delivery. USPS shipping is currently suspended due to USPS system backlogs.  Also, for Canada, the new USMCA trade agreement will reduce taxes and duties on this item.

A+ solution and product for an otherwise irreparable broken block/engine mounting system. Friendly service, fast shipping, easy to install. Strongly recommend reading and following the instructions above. Using a tap on the threads will be necessary if you live in a wet (rusty) climate. Purchasing the bolt kit will bring you great piece of mind (after all, not replacing the bolts is probably why you're here). The repair looks and feels strong.

Thanks, Dieselgeek!

Car saver!

2000 Jetta 2.0L gas . So happy I found this, arrived in two days and was installed in a couple of hours. Worked great and looks solid. Its critical to clean all thread holes in block with a tap first and to also purchase the bolt kit offered in my opinion. Awesome, thank you.

The bracket was the right one but I had to do some modifications for it to fit on my 2.0l Vw block. It was not sitting flush with the block. Minor grinding got the job sone. Thanks

I thought I was done the I found this part and it has been working out great so far. They have the best prices around with.quick delivery. I have been impressed and I order everything from them even if I let a mechanic do the work it's much more cost effective.

Engine block fix

I have repaired already 4 VW engines (3 1.9 ALH and one 2.0 BBW) with the broken ears before a catastrophic engine collapsing occurs. The kit installation by itself requires about 45 minutes, but if it is done with the timing belt change then the additional labor to install these kits is minimum. Instead of using the top engine support bar I normally use the floor jack to position the engine faster to access the mounting bracket bolts.
This kits are the only alternative to save thousands on expensive repairs. I will continue using them.
