You need to thread a 10mm diameter bolt into the threaded hole on top of the belt tensioner ... be sure to get one that is long enough .. you should be able to get it at your local auto parts store and/or possibly a home depot, lowes etc

I can't find the thermostat on my 1996 jetta gls


On 1996 VW JETTA,The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering, then power steering pump and mounting bracket are to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump housing. There are three bolts that are very difficult to navigate around. The thermostat is located behind those bolts.
----------------- Thank you.

What is the torque for the rear wheel bearing nuts on 1991 vw jetta diesel


Temporarly torque the axle nut to 87 in.lb., while turning the brake drum by hand. Then loosen the nut slightly. Tighten the axle nut again, slowly and in small increments while turning the wheel, until the thrust washer can just barely be moved back and forth with a light push from the tip of a screwdriver.

How do you remove the cv joint in a vw jetta 97. i have all bolts off etc. But I can not get it out !


The strut needs to be removed from the lower control arm. One bolt that holds the strut to the control arm. Loosen it and take the bolt out completely. Push down on the control arm so that it dislocates from the strut assembly. This will enable you to swing the strut outward and give enough free space to clear the CV from the hub.

Adjusment of alternator belt


There is no adjustment, engine has a spring loaded belt tensionor. If belt is squealing check to make sure tensior moves freely, this is the small pulley below the power steering pump. If tensioner moves freely replace belt. These tensionor are very difficult to change as access to mounting bolts is very tight.

Steps needed to replace front lower ball joint on 1998 vw jetta


these are actually easy to replace on these cars.
there are 3 small bolts that hold the ball joint to the control arm. new ball joints are sold with new hardware, so don't worry if it gets damaged when removing.
mark the postion of the old ball joint. they can be moved slightly on the control arm to change alignment.
the top of the ball joint is clamped into the wheel bearing housing with one large bolt.
I use a very large & dull chisel to spread the clamp on the bearing housing if the top of the ball joint is difficult to pull out of the wheel bearing housing.
