Is anybody familiar with upstream oxygen sensor for European model and north american model, if there is any difference. I have a 2000 volkswagen beetle turbo with 1.8 liter engine with aph engine code. I have also a Delphi oxygen sensor Es10921 from Rock Auto but somehow labelled for European model. I like to use in on my car for Canadian driving but not sure if there is any difference in emission standards.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Delphi, has a parts catalog online; it only lists one part number but doesn't seem to show a front sensor, only "rear": this is for north america:

Brand: Delphi
Part #: ES20168
Oxygen Sensor

Position: Rear

1.8L L4 1781cc
APH Desig.
Actual OE Part

Automotive Aftermarket Catalog - MyCarParts

I tried their online European catalog but couldn't get it to work.

Delphi WebCat

You might contact Delphi and see if they can help:

A quick google search with that Delphi part number hits a number of vendors; o'rielly's lists that sensor as being compatible with the following: (NOTE: it doesn't list the engine code APH in the listing)

1 vehicles2001Beetle
L4 - 1.8L 1781cc type AWV - MFI GAS DOHC Turbo-charged
2 vehicles2003 - 2004Beetle GLX
L4 - 1.8L 1781cc type AWV - MFI GAS DOHC Turbo-charged
2 vehicles2001 - 2002Beetle Sport
L4 - 1.8L 1781cc type AWV - MFI GAS DOHC Turbo-charged
3 vehicles2002 - 2004Beetle Turbo S
L4 - 1.8L 1781cc type AWP - MFI GAS DOHC Turbo-charged

Another site lists cross reference for that Delphi part # as equievelent to: OEM# 021906262B
Standard Motor Products (SMP)# SG897
Bosch# 17014

If this is the case; the above Bosch part # doesn't seem to be the right one, thus the Delphi isn't the right one either. This is just what I am seeing online; you might call Rock Auto to confirm but it wouldn't surprise me that they sent you the wrong one. I think I would just buy one locally and return the other one, seems the one you want is a Bosch 17353.

I don't know about Canada; here in the USA, I just buy Bosch branded 02 sensors, which is what the brand was from the VW factory. I go online to their website; look up the part number and just buy it locally, in my case at Autozone.

In this case; bosch lists these two sensors below:

Oxygen Sensor Upstream
APH Eng.

Oxygen Sensor Downstream

Hope this helps; you can look at the bosch catalog here:
