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.

Item worked fine. No more oil leaks from valve cover on my alh tdi golf. Pita taking the old gasket off, lol. But, well worth it

It was a lot of work scraping the old gasket out and a little tricky getting the new one in but it worked just fine. Thanks. Saved at least 150 bucks for the new valve cover that includes the gasket

Bearing in mind that i live in the UK. This gasket is not available at all unless you buy the whole rocker cover at approx £80 plus tax(same as the US from what i understand).Nobody has been able in Europe so far to re-manufacture this item. Seems that Hans Auto have. It fits like a genuine part, looks like the genuine thing and at the price delivered to me in the UK of around £20. An absolute bargain, has been fitted for a few months so far and fine. I have a 1999 Seat Toledo Tdi with an engine code of AHF. Thanks

Glad they made this part. Better than buying a valve cover. Lot of work to get original gasket off but worth it. Gasket worked great. Fit good.

Received my valve cover gasket promptly which with a little work in removing the old material from the cover was able to seal my leak and save the cost of having to buy a whole new cover, thanks!

$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.

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.

Glad to find this gasket by itself, as opposed to buying the whole cover. It was challenging to remove the old gasket but doable. Just take your time. Yes, I’d buy it again

Only place I could find that sold them separate from the cover and it fit perfectly. 5000 miles and not even a glimmer of an oil leak.

The also seems to be working so far. It was lots of work removing the old gasket, but I knew that was part of the deal. I certainly appreciated the opportunity to replace just the gasket and not the entire cover.

Worked very well once I used a propane torch and burned the old gasket. Well worth it. Seals great
