This is actually an easy swap out. Remove the electrical connection, remove the retaining bolt and pull out old one. I believe the sensor is located in the front passenger side of the engine on this particular model.

Code P0340 is a camshaft position sensor CIRCUIT fault. This means it can be a bad sensor, wiring fault (loose connector, short, open), or even a bad PCM. Since you've already changed the camshaft position sensor you've eliminated that possibility. It's time to do some electrical troubleshooting. That, of course, depends upon your skill set for this type of work and equipment (mostly a good dmm and schematics). If you're not equipped for this then you'll likely have to seek assistance from a local shop.

It's not that hard to replaced, and can be done with common tools.
3.4 camshaft sensor removal:
Remove the serpentine belt, Disconnect the sensor wire harness, Remove the power steering pump (just remove it from the mount and out of the way), Remove the attachment bolt to the sensor, Remove the sensor, (note spray around the sensor with brake parts cleaner before removal to keep dirt from entering the engine)
To install: Lubricate the new O ring with engine oil before installing the new camshaft sensor, Tighten the retaining bolt to 8 ft.lbs. connect the sensor's electrical wire, reinstall the power steering pump, reinstall the serpentine belt.
Start the car and go out for the night with the money you just saved, You can pick up the camshaft sensor at Auto Zone and they can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Good luck and hope this helps. Take's just under 1 1/2 hour to do. You can do it in under 1 hour though if your good with tools.

Honestly it is not very expensive to replace, but it is not extremely important. What it does is measure the oxygen/fuel level coming out of the engine. This tells the computer that the engine is either using the right air/fuel mixture or allows the computer to change the mixture slightly to allow the car to run properly. You could pull the sensor out and clean the terminal as it usually has alot of carbon build up due to its location, but this is normally a temporary fix. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Invest in a decent 'vagcom' diagnostic reader off eBay! This may help find any problems caused by the cars computer...
Other than that, how old is your golf? And when was the last service
