SOURCE: LOSS OF POWER
number of things
1 fuel injectors
2 worn throttle body
3 inside gas tank sending unit filter needs replaced
4 a/c compressor failing
5 replace air filter
6 depending on mileage of vehicle worn cam, bearings oil rings
7 oil and water mixing together (oil will look like chocolate milk on dipstick if this happens
8 not enough air from the electric fan in front of vehicle (hook constant power and a switch with power key off)
9 wrong fuel type (maybe you car requires premium)
10 alternator wareing out and makeing a slow drop in power
11 binding brakes or emergency brake line binding
12 worn sparks plugs wires and electrical unit that houses this
13 worn capacitor looks like a little tear can with power points on it
this is just basic diagnosing without being there to see the vehicle in person these are the things right off the top of my head that i can help diagnose right now
some of these things wont show on a diagnostic cause there more mechanical and sensors wear with mechanical
hope this helped you in your quest

You will need "VAG diagnostic software" - (google it) on a laptop and a £15 VAGCOM interface cable if you want to do it yourself.

SOURCE: vw golf bonnet release
On mine, a RHD, it is a plastic lever just forward of the door post. It is a crappy piece of plastic about four inches long.Mine has recently broken and will result in a bill for about £60-70 for replacing the lever and the cable (the cable is very tight)
Getting the handle off was a hell of a job until someone spotted that inside the handle, on the lower part as accessed from the outside, is a clip that needs to be pulled out to release the handle. Only then could we reach the cable and that took an enourmopus amount of effirt to release the bonnet.
As the mechanic said, "I didn't expect this sort of rubbish from VW"

could be numerous of thing and the list can go on, especially at times it run like a dream than other time it run horrible. Go to auto zone and have them plug it to computer for free and see if will throw a code, this way it will narrow it down instead of guessing and buying parts hoping that will fix the issue, this can be very expensive and there is no way to test the parts, beside checking the basic, plug, wires and coil. the computer will help narrow it down than guessing. then re post and one of us will try to walk you through it.
