    Removal of the filler tube insert

    Is there a write-up of how to remove this? This is the part that only allows car diesel nozzles to be inserted. I have a '14 Golf TDI and filling it up is a pain compared to my old TDIs. Thanks,

    How do I know if alternator pulley is bad

    Hi, On my wife's '00 Jetta TDI with 174,000miles, I get the 'noise' everyone is talking about when the ac is on. Many people said it's the alt pulley. Someone said to check the alt pulley, stick a screw driver in the vanes to prevent it from rotating in one direction. I did this and the...

    It's been a while since I read these threads. I see there are still problems with TB changes and most of the replies are to double check the pump. This has been the case ever since I started on this board. I did my first TB change years ago and it took me nearly as long to adjust the pump as...
