SOURCE: unable to get gears in

The most common cause is something called "clutch drag", a condition where the clutch does not fully release and continues to (partially) transfer power to the transmission. If you're suffering from clutch drag, you will find that gears engage easily when the engine is off, but you have trouble engaging it when the engine is running. You may also find that if you start the engine while it is in gear, a small amount of "shudder" is felt even while the clutch is depressed.

It could be as simple as too much clutch play. If I recall golfs have a cable clutch, so adjustment is done under the hood where the cable connects to the clutch arm on the bell housing. On hydraulic setups it is adjusted on the clutch pedal itself.

It is also possible that the splines on which the clutch plate rides are worn, causing the clutch plate to "rub" against the pressure plate/fly wheel and not fully release because of that.

I had a similar problem on my Toyota Corolla. Adjusting clutch play improved mattes, but the problem only went way after I had the clutch replaced.

I think it comes down to adjusting your clutch play (on the Corolla the clutch play should be between 7 and 15mm, I expect others to be similar) and if that fails, to have an expert look at it. Replacing a clutch is a fairly invasive (and expensive) operation, on most front wheel drive cars it involves removing the wheels, popping the suspension joints, removing the CV joints and the transmission to get at it, so it is usually a good idea to replace everything while you're at it.

SOURCE: how to replace tail light on VW golf mk5 estate

Although you posted this question under a 03 VW Golf and you have a MKV. The best I can do is a MKIV set up. From the rear trunk there are access ports just for this job. The right port will be just above the light housing you will find a wire harness for the right assembly. Follow the harness and it will lead you to the assembly. Once located you can squeeze the two tabs and pull the circuit board where the bulbs are installed. Push on the bulb and twist anti-clockwise then pull out of the socket.

The left should be the same procedure and it is located behind your audio components.

NOTE: It's a good idea to wipe your hand and the glass bulb, leaving oily residue will cause early bulb failure once in operation.

I will assume this is an automatic gearbox, if so you will need an overhaul of the gearbox to correct this problem.

What dose the mfa button show


The MFA stands for in German "Multifunktionsanzeige" or Multi-Function Computer; which in a nutshell gives you information about the Temperature, Average Fuel-economy (changes with driving style), km's remaining with your current level of gas, and I am not sure if the Golf IV's show "real time fuel consumption" and I believe that on the Golf V's is also shows the Radio station. The buttons on the tip of the wiper control allow you switch through the various settings. Depending on the country the fuel economy will be shown in either l/100km or MPG. Hope this helps, if you have the cars manual then it should all be explained there.
