    Coolant line Removal

    I blew one of the heater core lines that goes to the back of my 05.5 Jetta 5SPD BRM. I thought I'd be able to use a standard heater hose to reconnect it but the angles are too severe. Thus I will replace both of the hoses and the connectors. The challenge I have is removing the connectors at the...

    911 Broke Down Coolant Leak Need Help!!

    I'm broke down on the highway, 400 miles from home, with a coolant leak. I have an 05.5 Jetta TDI. The coolant leak is coming from, as near I can tell, the back side of the motor. I don't have my manual. Is there a coolant input in the back side the motor that could have come loose?

    Transmission Mount Bolts

    In a previous thread I mention that I bought an A5 Jetta TDI 5spd used and just had the DMF let go. As I'm tearing down the engine to get the transmission out I found out that the original transmission was replaced with one from an A4. The transmssion had worked great, but there were definte...

    The Wrong Transmission in my car!!! Please help So I had posted earlier about the DMF going out in my A5 5spd Jetta TDI. I thought I'd get a jump start on my teardown and get it ready for the new flywheel and clutch kit. As I tear down the engine bay I am struck that there are a few parts...

    Is it my Clutch?

    I'm 95% sure it is, but just wanted to run it past the board. I was driving my 05.5 Jetta TDI an hour ago and made a turn. I downshifted from 4 to 3rd in the turn. Let out the clutch and it sounded like a gravel box with an obvious oscillating crack at my feet. I have 111K on the clock and...

    2009 Does it have a Timing Chain or Belt?

    Folks, Went for my test drive on Wednesday. Pretty impressive. The sales guy at Performance VW in Omaha was a total dill hole and I think he would have told me I'd get a lap dance from Gwen Steffani if I'd have put down my "place holding" $500. Anyway he told me that the new 2.0 TDI changed...

    Is a 2005 Golf GLS TDI and A5?

    Folks, I have been combing the internet for Jetta vs. Golf details and have probably become more confused than knowledgible. Ugh. I have some questions that I hope you can help me with. Is the 2005 Golf on the same platform as the 2005 Jetta? I have seen where it is considered an A4 vs the...
