The difference between the plastic and non-plastic reseal kits is the plastic crossover pipe vs. our updated crossover pipe with rubber hose and aluminum ends. The difference between reseal kit A and B is the size of the filler neck seal.
This kit includes the updated crossover pipe. VW had recently stopped making the crossover pipes but we had fittings made out of aluminum which will be a much improved and permanent solution over the factory plastic part. We also include a fuel breather hose between them. Kit includes 3 breather grommets , replacement crossover pipe , filler neck seal , sending unit O-Ring and 2-meters of fuel line vapor hose . This kit does not fit 1984 and older Federal models. Buying everything in kit form saves money over buying the parts individually and ensures you get all of the parts you need to complete the job. Please also consider that during this job while jostling the gas tank, sediment in the bottom may be energized from a long slumber and a little dirt may also drop into the tank. Might be a good time to change the fuel filter while doing this job. Please note that this kit does not include the 2 fuel expansion tank/side bleeder grommets (N90100501).
This kit is compatible with the Fuel Tank that we sell.
How to Determine the Difference Between California and Federal Fuel Tank Models
Under the front passenger wheel, you can see the fuel pipe that leads to the tank. On California models (Pictured), you can see a decrease in the tube size (from a circumference of 7.5" down to 5") right after the filler opening, whereas federal models, the tube stays a constant circumference of 7.5" from the filler opening to the tank. If the filler neck tapers down, you need this kit. If it stays the same circumference, you need Reseal Kit B . We recommend purchasing the one with the updated crossover pipe with aluminum ends over the plastic one.
