      MKIV VR6 Intake Manifold Bushings - 12V and 24V VR6 Engines - Click the Pic !


      Another Vortex 1st - You told us about the chronic rattles common to the intake manifold change-over valve on the 12V and 24V VR6 engines and we listened. Our bushings provide the fit that VW should have used to prevent intake manifold wear.

      Our bushings are designed to provide more contact area and a tighter fit to secure the intake manifold change-over rod. Continuing to use the weak OEM bushings will result in the change-over rod vibrating (the source of the rattle), which in turn will damage the intake manifold itself. Last we checked, these intake manifolds were running close to $1,000 and are only available from VW. Dont take chances by waiting, replace the bushings with our versions BEFORE rattling occurs! There is no need to replace the rod itself, just the bushings.

      These bushings replace the following OEM part numbers -

      021-133-653 (021133653) on 2.8L 12V VR6 engines - 1999-2006 Golf, Jetta, Jetta Wagon, Vanagon

      022-133-653 (022133653) on 2.8L 24V VR6 engines - 2002 on Golf, Jetta, Jetta Wagon, Vanagon

      022-133-653B (022133653B) on 3.2L 24V VR6 engines - Touareg, R32, EOS

      VR6 Billet Aux Water Pump Bracket – All VR6

      This part replaces the useless rubber donut OEM P/N 035-959-209E (035959209E) that does a poor job supporting your PRICEY auxiliary water pump, and related PRICEY hoses. The OEM rubber donut allows the weight of the pump and hoses to sag, causing stress which can lead to pump and hose failure. Our billet version is the way VW should of designed it to begin with and locks the pump and hoses tight! On or off track, this part will secure the aux pump and prevent pump and hose failure.

      Replaces OEM P/N 035-959-209E (035959209E) common to the following vehicles -

      Corrado - all VR6
      Eos - 2007 + 3.2L VR6
      Eurovan - All VR6
      R32 - 2004
      Golf, Jetta, Jetta Wagon - 1993-2007 All VR6
      Passat - 1992-2005 - All VR6 and V8
      Phaeton - 2004-2007 6L V12
      Touareg - 2003 on 3.2L VR6
