    clicking noise in the dash. seems to be related to the four way flash? Also the trunk is very heavy and difficult to open.

    I have the same problem. Randomly, I drive it to work... all is fine.... get off work, the car is making this 'clicking noise' and won't start. Everytime I turn the key, all the dash indicators (Miles, tripodometer, etc.) Go blank....



    I have no idea what it could be.

This problem is very common with MkV VW's. It's related to the heat and evaporator components. It's some sort of flap motor.

Creaking noise coming from front end.


YES! if you pay any one for any repair and it does something it didnt do before definitely have them check it out...........they may have missed something or forgot to tighten a bolt or damaged another component in the process. it sounds like a strut bearing or an improperly re-installed ball joint.
Hope this helps.........Good Luck!

2003 VW Jetta Serpentine Belt


is it a squeal noise or what? explain more in detail. and yes the belt is directional in that it's path is designed to run in one direction only, no matter which side you put on the belt itself, the belt can be installed in one way or flip it over to the opposite side...doesn't matter, only matters if you installed it correctly on the routing of the belt. And the grooved edge is to be facing down inside the main pulley's that have grooves. If you have the smooth side down into the pulley grooves, remove teh belt and turn it inside out so that the smooth side does not ride inside the grooves of the pulleys.Sometimes, the tensioner pulley will squeal or the idler pulley will squeal when they are going out. If you are actually hearing the fan come on and off, that's normal, the fan is set up to turn on and off according to engine temperature and some cars they continue to run for a bit after ignition is turned off as well to cool the engine down. check to see if the belt is set all the way on all the pulley's it rides on and not partly off on the edge, realign as needed.

Volkswagen jetta 2003


sounds like an electrical short or malfunction. this is a dealer only issue that VW knows best to solve. Check with your dealer to see if any recalls are on your vehicle and take it to them for repairs. Most local shops don't know enough about VW's to work on them accurately. I know this from experience of owning one myself years ago. Trust NO ONE BUT THE DEALER WITH YOUR VW.
