    The alternator from a passat 1.9 TDi 110 will fit as it is exactly the same engine. You will have to take the front panel away to get access to change the belts. You have to remove the front bumper and then undo the torx bolts that hold on the front panel. The whole panel comes away far enough to allow access to change the belts, without the need to remove the radiator or headlights. Hope this is of some help to you.

    No, they don't have to come out, it all comes away together when you remove the front panel. You don't disconnect any pipework or wiring.
