1996 Volkswagen Jetta 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
I have a 96 Jetta that is giving a P0303 misfire code. I've been systematically working my way back from the cylinder 3 spark plug (ignition coil was replaced 2 months ago). When I got to the distributor, the retaining clips were rusty and in bad shape. Needless to say, one broke off. I also have a 99 Jetta that is inoperable because it needs a new motor (my daughter drove it after ripping out the plug on the oil pan in a construction zone). I'm wondering if I can replace the distributor in the 96 with the distributor from the 99? Or if you have any suggestions about how to get the dist. Cap to stay down with only one side clipped that would be easier. Thanks.
