Customer Question
I need a...

I need a front pipe and converter and found one but I need to know if I have a ID BEV engine. I have an 05 jetta gls 2.0. Is that the right engine?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

140,000 automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Jetta yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, it's at s repair shop now but I'm trying to find the part for cheaper than they are selling it for. And I did if I have the matching engine requirements

Hello, for that year the BEV was the motor used for federal emissions cars and BBW was for California emissions compliance. If you look under the hood you should see a sticker that says " this vehicle complies to 2005 California or federal emissions standards" If it says federal it's a BEV. IF the sticker is not present you can call a dealer and provide your VIN and they can tell you.
