SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Automatics have a higher than usual number of problems. The engine is sound and a great power plant. Electronics come in for a lot of problems in the boost and start systems.
These are usually easy fixes if the shop knows what they are doing.
Much of the tactile coating on the interior plastic fittings wear off and look ugly on black interiors as the white plastic shows through.
Change timing belt every 50,000 miles and again at 100,000 miles along with seals, tensioner and coolant pump.
A broken timing belt will destroy this engine.
5 speeds are very reliable.
Body and paint seem to last well but head lamp bulbs have a short life.
Brake lamp switch should have been updated as well as the Coolant Temp' Sensor. ( CTS.)
