038103483 $5 VW Valve Cover Gasket 1.9 Beetle Jetta Golf TDI

New Valve Cover Gasket for 1.9 TDI Engines (ALH Only) for 98-05 Beetle, 99-06 Jetta, 99-07 Golf.

According to VW, this gasket is non-replaceable. Also, we have had some customer complaints saying that the old gasket is nearly impossible to remove. VW requires the purchase of a new valve cover with gasket for well over $100.

I don't currently sell the valve cover assembly.

$160 for a valve cover with gasket or $10 or less for a gasket? If you have to think about it go to the dealer.

Very glad to be able to find this part separate from the valve cover. Having more time than the money for a complete valve cover, it was not a problem to spend the time cleaning the old gasket off for reuse of the old valve cover.

Good part, a bear to clean old gasket but beats buying valve cover from VW.

Hello ! I send you this message to tell you that i am very pleased with the gasket that I got from you. The quality is the very best! I was not expecting it to be that good. It is at least as good as the original if not better. I am from Romania and it arrived to me in almost three to four weeks. Thank you!

I was glad I found a replacement for the valve cover for my 03 Jetta TDI. The factory did not offer a gasket replacement, only option was buying the $200 full cover. The old gasket was a huge pain to get off. I used a blow torch with a flat blade screwdriver and scraped it off. 2 hours to take it off. I used some RTV blue sealant as an extra sealant. Works great! A little bit of work to remove, but saved a lot of money! Thanks again.
