    Drive Shaft Heat Shield

    Hi, looking for a driveshaft heatshield for a KR/PG engine - it's the one mounted low down on the back of the block to protect the inner cv joints from the manifold
    1989 16v to G60 In-progress

    Pretty sure the 3 location bolts are in the same place on all 4 cylinder blocks of the era mate. I definitely have a couple in my lock up, but not sure when I'll next be up there, will check back here to see if you still need one next time I'm up there.

    I've had a look on VW ETKA and VW Classic Parts, looks like there's two slightly different part numbers.

    For MK3 Golf / Corrado / Passat 1988 onwards
    Part number 357 407 721A

    Length = 155mm
    Width = 140mm
    Height = 115mm

    Bolt holes are at a 45° angle


    For MK3 Golf / Corrado / Passat 1989 onwards
    Part number 357 407 721B

    Length = 145mm
    Width = 140mm
    Height = 140mm

    Bolt holes are level parallel

    I think most of the 4 cyl Corrado's use
    357 407 721B

    Hope this helps

    Had MK2 1.8 Scirocco Scarla 1998 to 2002
    had it lowered on original wheels,
    K&N air fitler and Janspeed exhaust system.

    Now have 94 M reg Corrado 2.0 16v since 2002 still got it, been off the road now since early 2015
    hoping to get it finished this year.

    Also have a 2015 Seat Ibiza TSI i-tech as my daily driver. Plus I'm on The SEAT Forum.

    Link to 16v torque settings & ECU pin locations.
