It is on the front of the battery (toward the headlight) down at the bottom - you will need a rachet (15 mm i think) with an extension. you can push a little against the plastic cover that houses the back of the headlight and expose the bolt or you can take out the 2 black screws on the plastic headlamp cover and slide it out (takes about 45 seconds)

HOW TO REPLACE A RADIATOR ON A 1999 VW JETTA


The procedure to replace radiator on 1999 VW Jetta is as follows:--- **Locate and remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator, and let the engine coolant drain into a resealable container. Then unplug the electrical connectors from the coolant fan and thermal switch.
**Then carefully detach the release lever holding the front bumper, and take off the radiator grille. Remove all bolts holding the front bumper and take off the bumper. Disconnect the temperature sensor connector and if necessary remove the spoiler.
**: Unhook the quick release couplings holding the coolant hoses to the radiator. Removing the screws securing the headlights and disconnect the headlights. If your Jetta is equipped with A/C, unfasten the A/C mounting bolts and the condenser bracket bolt on the left of the radiator.
**: Remove the radiator mounting bolts and slide the radiator and fan by sliding them downward. Don't disconnect any refrigerant lines, if your Jetta has an air conditioning unit.
**: Take the retaining clamps off the refrigerant lines and remove the bolts securing the refrigerant line from the side of the radiator. Be very careful that no hoses or lines are stretched or bent. Swing the radiator down and remove it from the vehicle.
**: Replace the radiator and replace and reconnect all engine and electrical components and the fender and bumper in the reverse order.
**: Then carefully fill the radiator with a mixture of half distilled water and half engine coolant. Start the vehicle and let it run for few minutes with the radiator cap off, in order to bleed air from the lines. Check the fluid level and top it off if necessary, then put on the radiator cap.
------Its done.

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.

there is a plastic block at the bottom of the battery held down by one bolt, as the bolt tightens it wedges against the batter to hold it in position. remove the hold down and it should come right out. make sure to put this back in with the new battery. good luck!

How do you replace radiator fan motor on 1996 VW Vento (Jetta)


You will need to unbolt the 4 bolts holding the fan shroud to the radiator, usually 10mm bolts. Unplug the fan and remove any relays or anything attached to the shroud. Removing the battery may give you a little more room to get the shroud out. Remove the fan from the motor and unbolt the motor from the shroud.

Removing VW polo 2005 battery?


Removing a battery from a Beetle is a bit complex and tricky. I just changed the battery in a 2003 2.0 Beetle. However, the process is very similar in a TDI Beetle. You will need more than your standard generic tool set in order to complete this task. Your tool list needs to consist of a pair of pliers (prefer locking type), a # 20 TORX head screwdriver (You will also need this if you ever plan on changing the Beetle's internal dash pollen filter for the A/C. ), a 10 mm and 13 mm sockets, a long extension and a wobble or universal to allow flexibility in tight spaces, an allen socket for removing the power steering reservoir, and a small adjustable wrench or a 10mm to remove the battery cables. If you are changing the battery you might as well buy a new Air filter since you will need to remove the air box in order to replace the battery. If you do change the air filter you will need a phillips head screwdriver.

1. Pop the hood.
2. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that hold down the air filter box.
3. Undo the clamp that holds the large tubing to the air box using your pliers. Move the tubing away from the box.
4. Unclip hose attached to the back of the air box near the large hose (under it).
5. remove the small breather hose from the air box.
6. Pull air box up and out.
7. Remove snap on cover from top of battery.
8. Remove small snap on wiring cover from back of the battery covering.
9. Unbolt power steering reservoir (next to battery case).

10. Disconnect the battery cables. Positive side first.
11. Remove the 13 mm bolt at the base of the battery along with the hold down clamp.
12. Pull the top wiring away from the battery case and then slide the battery towards the engine.
13. Remove the plastic battery case.
14. Remove the battery

2005 VW Jetta TDI Wagon: Left brake light doesn't


Very difficult. You have to open the inside access door on the drivers side, remove the amp and wheel well cover, pinch the tabs and the bulb cluster will release. The taillight assembly is bolted from inside of the car, so it can't be done outside.

Removing a 2005 2.0 jetta volkswagen battery


Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight.  Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet.  Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down.  Next disconnect battery cables.  Hold those out of the way.  pull battery forward and up.  Install in reverse order.  Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules.  Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset.  This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom.  The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.
