    My 04 Jetta is in need of a new lift pump in the tank. I'm curious to where the best place to purchase a new one? Of course I want an OEM (Siemens/VDO) quality unit and NOT some Auto-Zone/Advance junk. Any positive direction will be appreciated.

    Front license plate bracket holes

    Squeaking problem under the hood

    After calling a freind of mine that used to be a VW dealership tech, I think I've determined it's a weak tensioner. I put moderate pressure on it while turning the wheels at idle and the noise went away.

    Squeaking problem under the hood

    Ok guys,........ I thought I had an issue with my small elec fan that activates when I use my A/C,.......... and I still might, but that doesn't appear to be my problem at the moment.
