The bora 4motion passat and jetts have identical issues with this, its an automated manual (uses electronic input from gear selector and auto clutch) i had the same issue and found out this issue is part of a severe tecnical service bullitin (tsb) and if you take thw car to the nearest vw dealer will be fixes free of charge. if the problem was fixed before you might as well buy a new car because thats how much you will pay to fix it.

I had a similar trouble. At the beginning the trouble was intermittent. Now out. My mechanic tested all the system.
The pump is good. Vacuum too. No more electricity in the wires about the Cruise Control. Still searching. Cannot help you more.

Hello, this is a common Fault with the bora/ Passat/ Golf. It generally tends to happen once your car has done 70K plus.
It's more of a electronic fault than an actual physical fault with the turbo.
What happens is when you are accelerating/ or applying an additional load to the engine, like going up a hill for example,the the turbo boost sensor tells the engine management system that it's over boosting (supplying the engine with too much boost pressure or air) the engine then goes into self preservation mode and will not allow the turbo to boost anymore and therefore does not allow your car to accelerate any more than it had been doing prior to the issue. A road side fix for this is to switch your engine off for a minute let the sensors re-set themselves and he presto the problem goes away.
You can be one of the lucky ones that this only happens to a few times, so some other people seem to have a re-occouring problem with.
It happen me in my 2001 Bora on the way back to the UK from a holiday in Germany, not very plesent when your in the overtaking lane doing 100mph+ on the Autobahn ;-).
After switching the engine on and off numerous time through Germant and France i finally got back to the UK, and brought it to my local Garage, who hooked it up to a Diagnostic machine, cleared the engine faults and i've not had a re-occurance since.........
Hope this helps

SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet
first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.
