It should, but check mounts first.  Reasoning says it should, and this is a
standardized powerplant used across the vw line, but dumb things have happened
before. Specifically the part numbers for the mounts, are they the same for
both cars.  If they are, I'd wager the trannies are interchangeable.  If not,
they may just be heavier for Passat application, but it's worth a try.

ditto... don't care for autos one bit.  Have standard with big miles on it
already, would probably be on the second looking for the third auto by now.
Waitaminit... 85 Jetta with 70 k on the clock?  gotta be a story there...
