Default ***MkVI Jetta Sedan Specific DIY/FAQ/HOW-TOs Smorgasbord***

I've been slowly bookmarking threads over the past two years of owning my MKVI Jetta Sedan. I'm pretty forgetful and got sick of searching for threads over and over. Surprisingly, there still isn't a real FAQ thread specific to the MKVI Jetta Sedan.

So here are all the links that I've been hoarding in a spreadsheet.

Disclaimers:
1. I wanted links to be as specific to the Jetta Sedan as possible, in some cases there are links that are for other platforms, but still apply.
2. I tried to use TDIClub links as much possible.
3. None of these are in any sort of order.
4. Some of the links are pretty old, if you have better ones please let me know.

TDI Dictionary!
6MT = 6 Speed Manual Transmission
DSG = Direct-Shift Transmission
CEL = Check Engine Light
CR = Common Rail, fuel injection style of the MK5/6 engine
DPF = Diesel Particulate Filter, an ash filter in the exhaust
EGR = Exhaust Gas Recirculation, an engine emissions device
HPFP = High Pressure Fuel Pump, the MK6 has 3 fuel pumps, the HPFP being the last before the injectors
IMHO = In My Honest Opinion
IRS = Independent Rear Suspension
PD = Pumpe Duese (Another name for engine type in MKIV BEW Jetta/Golfs)
PM = Private Message, check your messages!
TDI = Turbocharged Direct Injection
VCDS or VAGCOM = Product sold by RossTech for interfacing with VW ECU's through OBDII
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary, easy way of adding a disclaimer to a statement

Here is some topics I could use some help with!

Help with Fuse Diagrams - The most current known fuse diagram for MK6 Jetta TDI is linked, however I'm not convinced it is the same for all trim levels and DSG, please compare to your car and let me know if you see discrepancies. Its criminal that there isn't a fuse diagram from VW.
Used Car Buying List
Advance TDI Member Maintenance Intervals - Engine Specific, DPF, intake flapper, suspension refresh, engine mounts, oil pump, turbo inspection, fuel pumps, etc....
DSG Service How To Link

Turbo Failures - Lots of threads about failures, but nothing really summarizing it... Specifically talking about regens/high EGTs being the likely cause

Anyways, what am I missing? I know there is a ton more good stuff buried in the archives!!!

Here is a drive link to the fuse panel.. should be for the 2011 version.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4U...ew?usp=sharing

And, I notice you have this in there already.

Great list though. I have it bookmarked and ready for when i mess something up. much better than the 400 others i have scattered all over.

Thanks! I can't take any credit for the material, I just thought it would be nice to have it organized and in one place.

No Problemo! And thanks for all the kind words. Just trying to do my part to give back to such a wonderful community. I don't know how I would have gotten through my timing belt break on my '04 back in 2010 as well as stripping out its 5th gear, without Fred's.

So some other ideas I was thinking of.. I think the last post up there, I am going to make a short FAQ section, as well as a definitions section. A lot of acronyms are thrown around on here and it can be a little overwhelming for new people. Also, any new threads or updates, I will call out respectively.

There was a thread a while back I'm looking for now, maybe you guys can help. Issues people have had with their keyless entry and start not working. I seem to remember one of them showing something you can reset to make it work better....

Found it... I actually started it :O There wasn't a lot of actual how-to in it, just things to try, mainly changing the fob battery. Which I did last night... and it worked.

I just found this while looking for where the sensors where actually located. Maybe someone can bring it over here? VWvortex link about Cleaning ABS sensors, could also be used to remove/replace them I suppose. It does have a nice little tid bit about how they need no adjustment.
