I have a 99.5 we should have the same motor, and I know mine did not come with a block heater. Dealer did not even have a listing for one. I just added one to mine, it's called a FROSTHEATER should be able to pull it up on line. Cost me 100 U.S.dollars to purchase it. It was very easy to install.
If you do have one there should be an electrical plug sticking out the front of your car. That is usually where they run the cord to so you can plug them into an outlet. good luck.

I do believe soem 2000 Jetta TDI's came with block heaters. Normally a heater of this type you plug in is to keep the oil warm. This will not keep the block very warm and will not decrease the amount of time it takes to heat up.
If you want the car and the heater to get warmer quicker, you should invest in a "Zerostart coolant heater". There are company's that sell these with all of the hoses, bolts, and clamps needed for a quick installation. If you can change brake pads, you can install this.
I currently have this installed on my TDI and have it plugged into a timer. It comes on about 2 hours before I leave in the morning. It electrically heats the coolant and thermosiphons the coolant through the block. I am now able to immediately begin defrosting the windshield at start up.

most the time they don't. unless you said to. i live in Alaska, and when people buy new vehicles they say they can't put them in. if your not familar with cars than you should have it professionally done. sometimes it can be a pest. on the side of your engine block you should see an indent a little bit bigger than 50cent piece USD. it is a plug. you have to purchase the block heater (which is just an element) remove the plug and VERY quickly put the heater back in. the block heater keeps the coolant warm and is through the coolant duct. all the coolant will immediatly pore out. if it is installed wrong you will have a coolant leak. you should have it done professionally done to avoid future problems
