sorry i won't be able to make it this weekend, i'm headed to Des Moines. my friend Nick has a VagCom, and i'm sure he'd be willing to lend it to you. in fact, we might both be able to stop by on Sunday and have a look at the finished product, and to run some diagnostics. would that work for you?

DeafBug,
i still need an IP swap and a TB job, and my twin brother MrScottdi needs a TB as well. we don't have a garage as of now, but i'm in the process of looking. i'll let you know as soon as we've got something. i think that weekend of Feb 28th should work for me, i'll check my calendar at work tomorrow and let you know.

i'm looking at ordering two more things

http://www.metalnerd.com/cat10.htm

Part HZ456000 - Diesel Fuel Line Wrench - 17 mm
Part MN1818 - TDI Injector Slide Hammer Puller

i figure they'd both just be good to have around, seems like someone in Omaha should own them. if anyone already does, let me know. in that case i would like to borrow them when i help my brother swap in a set of Sprints this spring.

Eric,
Have you talked to DeafBug or Losha about install? Maybe Husker or TDIEddie can offer up a space if you have enough lead time. Just a thought.....

I have the space and Brad knows how to get here for sure, I'm just not 100% sure when I'll be around and for how long. I'll check with my wife and see when her next trip to Iowa is. That's when I stay put

TDI(s): 2009 Jetta
Default Need more help finding Cabin Filter

I looked under the glove box and saw two pushpins. Kind of flimsy. It looks like they would be damaged when removing a panel. Do you get new pushpins with filter? Or, what do you remove to get to the filter?

Default Dealer Inspection

I am taking the car to the dealer for a 60 day new car inspection this Friday, who by the way said "Yes it has a cabin air filter". We shall see. I asked the mechanic to look at it.

Default 2009 JPollen Filter Mystery

VWCAMPIN,
Thanks for helping, but that does not look like my 2009 Jetta under the glove box.

I hope there is a retrofit pollen filter option available if it is not there.

Default Pollen Filter update

Went in for my 90 day inspection. No one knew for sure about the cabin filter. The mechanic removed some screws and found a cabin filter. They said so. I did not see him remove it. Anyway, the underside of the glove box area does not look like any picures posted on this site. I will try to find the screws that were removed and the take a picture to post here.

I'm from the Omaha area and am considering buying a Jetta TDI. It would be my first diesel. I'm still not convinced enough yet to go check one out.

Are you looking at new or used? Do you have a long commute or travel a lot? Do you/can you do basic work on your car? Those are just a few things to consider before looking to buy one. There are certainly enough of us here in Omaha if you wanted to check one out.

I would buy new since the 2009 models qualify for the lean burn energy credit and being a new vehicle also qualify for an above the line sales tax deduction.

My commute is about 12mi each way. I am capable of doing basic work on a car but I tend to make things more complicated than they need to be.

none of the old-hand Omaha area members have a 2009 yet, but HKS will have some experience if you decide to buy one. the rest of use would be glad to help out, and glad to learn more about the 2009's for ourselves.

welcome to the club, and i hope you make the wise decision to purchase a TDI.
