Hi I'm new to he owners club and am after some technical advice please.
I've just bought my friends 2006 manual car which had hydraulic'd the engine when his wife drove through a deep puddle.
I've bought a replacement engine from e bay, which when it arrived turned out to be from an automatic car . I've fitted a new dual mass and clutch and fitted the engine . All went well until I went to attach the cam adjuster selenoid plugs.
The ones from my car loom don't fit, they both have two wires but the pins in the plugs are smaller on the replacement motor.
So I stripped the rocker and side casings to swap the selenoids but found them different.

Does anyone know if the auto,s are different or if they had an upgrade on model years , are the plug ends available ?
Or any other solution to my problem.

Thanks for any help or advice

Do you know if vw used different selenoids in the auto for any reason.
Or if Vw upgraded the selenoids on later engines ?
Thankyou

Looks like they did, a 2006 BUB has different exhaust control valve for the camshaft than a 2009 for instance, at least the part numbers are different, so going by that the connector could be different

Its the same whether its auto or manual as far as i can tell

Should still work with the correct connector plugged into the loom

Yes apparently they were changed in 2007.
I've managed to get the part numbers from a very helpful parts person at Preston Audi and their master technician Steve Singleton who was very knowledgable ,
Ordered the connectors and wires and hopefully should be up and running tomorrow.
Many thanks for your help.
