i think all B5's had the same belly pan.

little screw things held it, just the screws that you push up and give a 1/4 turn

you can also use the passat belly pan of similar year of B5 chassis.

Also, zip ties work lovely.

Yes, cable zip ties are the best - no need for any screws, but you might need to drill a few holes in the plastic in some places.

The plastic belly pan is not going to protect against anything but dirt and salt. I don't even have all the mounts for one anymore. And if I wanted one I would need new fender liners, the belly pan, and all the screws. I highly doubt those things are 15 bux a piece. I have a whole box of them at my dads shop.

Before I worked here I ran around without one. We had a bad snow and I ripped off some piping from my car in a parking lot. They are definitely worth it. I had to pay 50 bucks for a broken hose and 130 for a shorted alternator... Afterward, I ordered one of these and had another violent winter with no problems, even after lowering my car too.

They also reduce noise while driving. They are designed to direct air to cool your motor by directing air through your front end and out, in a channeled fashion. Without one, you aren't properly directing air through your radiator. The difference is minimal but it exists. I just thought you should know the facts before winter hits hard.

I would highly reccomend a aluminum belly pan if u can, I scrape A LOT and I'm sure it has more than paid for itself. Especially if u plan to get low it is a great investment bc the plastic one will just rip off after a while and doesn't protect as well
