Put it on and see if it charges. If it doesn't you will know it's wrong.

Look at the pulleys and count the grooves. If they are the same you don't have to change it.

Thanks tuff4x4 the grooves are the same but the jetta alt is supose to turn clockwise and the convertable counter clock wise I was told the beetle wasn't supposed to have a clutch pulley but if you order 1 from vw they don't ask if it's convertable or not I think your rite when I had it tested he tried it both directions it charged both ways the only thing it won't cool as good but I'm willing to chance that
