easy fit, quick fix
using the attached video, my daughter and I were able to install the regulator and get her back on the road in less than an hour. additionally this regulator had the mounting studs on it. Great product and great service. I will use 1AAuto exclusively.

Exactly what I needed.
This part was very reasonably priced compared to the local VW dealer and was exactly what I needed. Couple that with good service and followup.

The part arrived on time, and it was an exact match to the old one. The construction seems solid, but time will tell on that. Mine even came with mounting bolts to replace the factory rivets that originally held it in place. So I didnt have to root through my quarter-twenty bolts to find a good fit... I thought that was a nice touch.
