Catalytic converter replacement


Asked by Jun 13, 2016 at 01:13 PM about the 2005 Volkswagen Beetle Dark Flint Edition Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What's the difference between the oem part
1J0254509AX and 1J0254509A? I am trying to
replace my catalytic converter and was wondering
if the latter can replace the 1st part...

There isn't a difference. However if you're in California, you may want to ensure that you have the correct part number or you won't pass inspection.


Well I found one and it said it's good for California emissions.


Make sure they'll ship it to California, AND use the link I provided to confirm that the cat is valid for California usage-- trust me
