A Few Options Codes Please

Postby robDHc » Sun Jul 26, 2015 10:42 pm

Hi all,

I've decoded the majority of my factory spec, just coming troubled with a couple remaining.

Type: 1G1 1C2 - I know 1G1 is the chassis but what about the 1C2 part??

Type: BAS - Base model perhaps?? Not really sure to be honest

Engine Code: 2G 8N - I believe the 8N is the code for the transmission but what does it mean??

Interior: CJ - Pictures would be cool if at all possible!!

General: 3KY - I have no idea!!

General: H0J - I believe these this to be the tyre size. From other codes I know it came on 5x13 steels on unbranded tyres if that helps at all

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated :thumbs:

Thanks, Rob

1C2 refers to Golf 1.3 up to 07/89 with either MH or 2G code engine and 8N box

2G is the engine code, BAS I think you're right is for basic model is it on the same line as 'GOLF'? if so thats likely it, as a GTI will say 'GOLF GTI'

8N is the box code, refers to the ratios inside, normal 5 speed 1.3 type gearbox

see my list here, not complete tho unfortunately:

3KY is 'standard type seats'

H0J will be the tyre size, i cant say what exactly it was as its been over-written by VW and now refers to 245/40/18 tyres :lol:

list of seat fabrics, CJ doesnt appear to be listed!

Thanks rubjonny, was hoping you would reply!! :wink:

1C2 bit seems strange, it was registered on the 5th January 1990.. Maybe it just sat in the showroom for a whilst??

Everything else I managed to find with more detailed searching this morning, so thanks for confirming :thumbs:

Not too fussed about the tyres, but I've always been intrigued by the interior. I know the current one wasn't the original one, wondered whether it should be the brown interior??

Thanks for this rj I was always wondering if my car came with leather. The interior code is TB I've now found it is the original leather thanks to this interior code list. Cheers
