Yes the other half of that sticker is on the front page of the service book.Look in the trunk by the spare tires. There should be a build sheet there.
Not completely applicable in North America. First, the page for the build info is not the first page in the US edition, but is way inside on page 23. In addition, US dealers are often very lax about putting the build sticker in the service book.Yes the other half of that sticker is on the front page of the service book.
Also if you don't know your service interval long or short that also is on the sticker.
To find out which service interval your cat has then just open the service schedule book. On the first page there should be a sticker with the car details on it, VIN number engine code and transmission code. Then there are 7 rows of numbers and characters further down. On the third row mine shows 3 characters then a space, three more characters the QG1, then a space and three more blocks of three characters.
QG1 is the shorter 10,000 miles and the QG2 is longlife 20,000 miles service.
Sorry I should have stated the UK. Most forums show the location of the user but this one obviously doesn't.Not completely applicable in North America.
Is there a difference in how the engine performs between the "QG1" & "QG2"? I woul donly guess mine is a QG1 since my intended service intervals are 10K. I do know I have the door jamb sticker giving the build date....QG1 is the shorter 10,000 miles and the QG2 is longlife 20,000 miles service.
No VW say something like if you commute 25 miles or more then your engine should get hot enough to burn any water off so they would recommend the longlife 20k service interval. If you do a lot less then they suggest the 10k service interval. The other half to that info label is stuck to the boot floor.Is there a difference in how the engine performs between the "QG1" & "QG2"?
I found how you can find the build date with VAG-COM\VCDS.Question, how can I determine the build date of my jsw? I looked on the driver side door sticker, but it's not there.
