    Post Options Sticker and Engine Codes - Where are they & What do they Mean on your VW...

    Hi Guys.

    Now I've had this info for a long time I've just seen it again so it may as well go in here. I've just posted this info in bits and pieces in another thread.

    Let me start from the beginning. Every VAG vehicle made has an Options sticker. One half of this sticker is on the first page of the service schedule the other half will be stuck on the boot floor somewhere near the spare wheel well (depending on the vehicle).

    This sticker will show lots of info about that vehicle. This is sticker may not be exactly the same as yours.



    This engine code is BWA and the transmission code is JLW along with the paint code under the engine number LB9A.

    They sometimes put the engine code on a sticker on the timing belt cover.

    If you want to know what all the other option codes are from 3 down then type them into VW/Audi/Seat/Škoda Option Codes Decoder. These Option Codes will tell you what was fitted to the vehicle when it came from the factory.

    Now if you have a lot of time on your hands you can download VAG Option Codes 235 page pdf file and have a read through them all.
    In that pdf there is a link to VAG Codes where can type in the odd Option Code but you can type in the engine code and it tells you which models the years they were fitted with that engine.

    So if someone is after an engine you will see which vehicles used that engine code.

    Please add the engine code to your signature. http://www.volkswagenforum.co.uk/f26...spec-5119.html

    You can type your VIN number into VIN search tool to see what engine code is returned from the VIN number. Don’t be sad if the website doesn’t have your VIN. Come back to the website next 2 days maximum. The administrator of the website will put the information!

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
