    06 Beetle TDI Fuel Filter Change (BEW)

    The MoGolf answer will be oh so superior to my guesses. In lieu of a vacuum pump, you might be able to use a long section of clear hose, suck and squeee to pull the air out. Worksv on the VE. Long clear hose so as not to take any chances with fuel in your mouth.

    06 Beetle TDI Fuel Filter Change (BEW)

    Damn interweb. So it managed to distribute that air throughout. Don't know the PD engine, can you crack a line on the tandem pump to burp it? Additional pump cycling should clear it, but how long IDK. Connect battery charger. Take your time.

    Yea that's a pretty cool device. You get an economy tune, swap them back and forth.

    2002 Jetta TDI ALH, aftermaket transponder bypass unit wiring horror

    Has anyone mentioned glow plug codes do not go away on their own? They must be cleared (silly).

    Don't the unit injectors sometimes develop oil leaks on the PD?

    Believe the ECU can only store 1 set of code. The FZ is what allows you to store the spare. Disclaimer- I've never used the flashzilla.

    06 Jetta automatic DMF noise.

    I don't consider a clutch r+r a diesel specific repair. Find a good local mechanic, spec the parts yourself.

    What is the longest you have seen the 01m last?

    I'm sure there are 98 bugs with 01m still working. They're just not good, not near as bad as the my 1st mopar minivan auto. Those failed like 98%, the 01M I'd guess is more like 70% fail rate. No reason not to use it if it works, they can sometimes be remedied (see

    Mk4 Tdi issue

    Well if a VCDS won't connect, you needs to track down and test all the electrics involved. See Post #15

    Getting rid of the underhood cover and engine cover?

    Got rid of all the fur and no engine cover on mine. No issues. Potential for stress on the tube, should not be a problem.

    2000 Jetta TDI loss of power after clutch replacement

    No battery silliness with these cars. Always good to disconnect the thing when working on the car, protects the electrics. Might need radio code, maybe some newer ones have "learn" functions, IDK. Should be no relation of clutch r+r to power issue. Likely broke or disconnected a fatigued vacuum...

    500 buck Auto TDI with rusted out rockers and fender....keep or get rid of?

    I've found mechanical stuff can always be fixed and body rot is always expensive. One option is to use a local vocational school, they usually work for only parts cost, but they can take forever. I've seen after market bolt on rocker things, but repairing those is a lot of work. Front fenders...

    No boost/Code P0243 after VNT17 installation.

    Can not find P0243 in the Ross Tech wiki. Generic search finds this- What causes the P0243 code? The turbocharger wastegate solenoid is shorted or has an open in the solenoid. The solenoid connector is corroded, causing an open circuit. The wiring in the solenoid circuit is shorted to power or...

    Picking nozzles and an injector rebuild service for a BEW

    He likely has a deal where he sends you complete injectors and you send back your old ones.

    stuttering, stalling

    Yes, bouncing while checking. Believe your IQ is fine. It's hard to stall a diesel engine. One of the engine management controls. Often we see these older cars develop wire/connect issues.
