A picture will help.

"Plug gap" is a somewhat (ok REALLY) outdated term. Plugs come set with a gap already, no need to mess with anything, just replace them with the correct one at the specified interval.

Most newer cars have no schedule for gasoline fuel filters, some cars do not even have one. Your car may have a replaceable one, if it does, it will be located under the car just ahead of the RR wheel. But again, the engine code and platform will help here.

So that is why neither of those items is in your manual, doesn't need to be, as they do not intend for anyone to mess with it.
car is 2014 jetta trendline plus. engine is 2.0 liter mpi, code cbpa......thanks

OK, so you have essentially the car that was sold here as the Jetta S. It is the NCS car, with the base SOHC 2.0L "two-point-slow" 115hp engine.

The key components of PM schedule (in miles) is:

10k: oil change, tire rotation

20k: cabin filter

60k: air filter, spark plugs

Then they do specifically call out a replacement interval for the timing belt, only to "inspect" it every service starting at 80k, which is quite dumb. I'd just plan on replacing it at 100k.

There is a serviceable fuel filter under the car, it should also be good for 100k but it also has no service schedule.

"NCS" is New Compact Sedan, which is the moniker given to the 2011+ Jetta sedans, beginning the phase of the Jetta no longer being a Golf with a trunk, and instead being a decontented price point leader for the brand in North America. It is an excellent value car, especially with the base engine as your car has (which is a very tough, simple, durable engine). It is not really an A4 or A5 or A6 (or, as some like to say "mark-X" ), as it is its own platform. That said, it is not a drastic departure from other VAG platforms of the same era, and does share a few parts. The 2012+ Beetle also rolls on the same underpinnings. The Typ code is 162 (whereas the 6th generation Golf is 5K1).

yes , thanks a lot. i as well find it quite ridiculous that they don't recommend a replacement of timing belt at a certain mileage. the car has 174000 kms on it and i'm understanding from dealer it hasn't been replaced yet, just checked at oil changes

I would for sure be getting the timing belt replaced.
