On this cars , you need to use so called back up battery or memory saver , if you need to replace battery . If you need to perform some electrical work and battery has to be disconnected , then you better have a tool that capable of doing throttle body adaptation. Any time throttle body looses power , you have to do adaptation after, in order for it to work normaly.
Can not do it manually.(adaptation).
disconnect to battery ground cable and lift the front and jack it on stands and make sure it is safe. go under front side locate the starter it is next to oil filter. discoonect cables and make sure to remember which one goes where. there is a two mounting bolts lose them out and pull out the starter.
How does the belt look, and when was it last changed? If it's the original or shows signs of splits or cracks, yes, change it, preventative maintenance is much better than having it break and getting stranded somewhere, and maybe even overheating the engine. countrycurt0
I change the battery on my TDI by undoing the nuts in any order, positive first and then neg, or vice versa. If you happen to have a long wrench that can connect terminals, be very careful not to touch the other one, undo the neg first then. When you work on the positive pole do not touch any metal parts of the body, if you have not released the neg yet, otherwise you will see fireworks with the following fuse replacement.
When the batteyr is disconnected from the terminals the radio code will be lost. If you don't know your original radio code, you will have to go to the dealer and pay $105 for the code. Without that code the the radio will not work unless you have installed other than VW CD player
