As long as you know the key number, go back to your dealer.

If you don't know the number then you will have to get them all removed by professional ie the dealer or a tyre centre and buy a new set of bolts/nuts.

SOURCE: steps for replacing wiper motor for 1998 VW Jetta

remove wipers. remove plastic covering by loosening plastic screws first. unplug wiper motor wires. there are about three 10mm nuts at the motor location and you also have to unscrew the big nuts that were below the wipers when you unscrewed them. replacement is reversal.

Mechanic says I need to replace my wheel bearings on my 97 Jetta. Is this something I can do myself or find a less expensive way than the mechanic?


The bearings need to be pressed in so if you have access to a press you can do them yourself. Speaking from experience, putting them back in with a hammer and block doesn't work. It wont get the bearings in tight enough or straight enough on a VW. Two months later I has to redo them. Hope this helps.

How do i replace my front wheel bearings on my 1997 vw jetta


You'll need to remove wheel hub assembly. Disconnect from the strut and lower ball joint, unbolt the brake caliper, carrier and rotor. Press out the wheel hub, remove the retaining clips in the assembly and press out the old bearing.

Transmission leak!!


Had similar problem (Jetta 5 cylinder 2006) - leaks in the timing chain cover, large oil leak near the tranny (sounds like your problem), leak from "ALT belt side crank pulley seal and leak from oil pan. This car has only 23,000 kilometers about 14,000 miles on it!!! The dealer repaired this at no charge...

Signed
(waiting for the wheels to fall off...)
