I was responding to looking on Amazon. Sorry Tony. That link is super useful. Thanks for sharing.

Be careful on ebay and amazon. #1 source for fakes because there are no buyers between end user to decide weather or not to sell fakes.

That's what I was thinking, Richard and Tony. The part numbers are the same, the photos are the same. But there is no way to tell where they come from on Amazon. I will use Tony's source if I can't get them locally.

Thanks TonyA
Just what I needed.
Took all of 10 minuets instead of the 10 hours already spent trying to buy local.

I purchased the coil and two sensors from Ebay this month.
You have to read the descriptions carefully and closely inspect the photos.

Look for original BOSCH Packaging

Look at the item for BOSCH markings.
- the temp sensor has Bosch stamped on the hex,
- the cam sensor has Bosch visible on the flange near the screw mounting
- the Coil has fine data "etchings" on the back whereas the Norton coil has nothing, also Bosch is visible on the outside frame.

If you can't see these in the sellers photos, then move on to another listing.... there are a lot available... you just have to do the leg work.
Mine all arrived and are the OEM items

Looking forward to your review. And of course longevity of these components. Should be a very long time before needing replaced again. And in most cases, a noticeable difference in idle or smoother or more consistent running.

I've always been a fan of Bosch products too and would hope they are more durable than average, but I had to change the Bosch coils (all 6) on my 2002 Jetta Gli twice! Only have 62K on it. Not cheap. Hopefully these coils and sensors will be fine.

Sorry but time for a stupid question.
The heat transfer paste, does it go on both and is it over all exposed metal?

See the top pic in bushmans thread?

That is the only part that requires the paste. That is the temp sensor. Paste from the threads to the tip. Don't go crazy and pack it in tho. Just a good sized blob. You"ll see when you take the old one out.

For those in Oz, Bosch sell direct. I ordered yesterday and received today. They are in Victoria and I am in Brisbane.

I called into an auto shop today and was told to use "dielectric grease" is this correct.

Sorry Richard I am confused. Cam sensor front of engine, temp sensor back of block. Why are we talking about the starter removal manual?

Speed sensor and cam sensor are the same. If you're up to changing it also.

I'm in Scotland, and also on the trail of the sensors for my 2016 model MKII Sport. I contacted www.eurocarparts.com to enquire about the availability of the previous mentioned sensors in this post. The reply I received was as follows :-

Bosch Cam & Speed Sensor- http://www.eurocarparts.com/search/419220120
Bosch Head Temp Sensor- http://www.eurocarparts.com/search/224110077

Unfortunately the part numbers appear to be different form the one's listed in this post, and appear to be more expensive. I have asked if they are replacement part numbers, but have had no response. The eurocarparts website is geared towards searching for parts using registration number or car model, which is no much help.

Hopefully this does not confuse matters even further.....

They are using the wrong website. The website I listed is Eeuroparts.com
Go to the link I posted earlier and launch it there. !
