Finally got the MK2 Jetta in my possession today. My friend says there's a serial number located on the oil pan that you need (in addition to the VIN of course) in order to get the title back (the original is lost, AARRRGGGHHH!), though I found no such number on the oil pan. He did the same thing for his old MK2 Golf and it was right where he said it was. However, I did find one on the engine. Just curious if this is the number I'm looking for, whether this is actually necessary for what I need to do, how many digits should I be looking for, or if in fact such a number exists that's important enough for me to even bother with this. Any help with this already troublesome project endeavor would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
