Question about 1998 Volkswagen Golf
Hi, just got a golf off a friend and it won't start. There is power to everything but the fuel pump, wires seem to be good.. what could cause the fuel pump not to work and how can it be fixed? I was reading on other forums that the vw has a security system that activates if the battery was disconnected for a long time, the battery has been disconnected for approx. a week, would this cause the problem? How can that be fixed without going to a dealer as the nearest one is 2 hours away from here.

On my golf,
long dead of truckbackupitis, the hood release was a plate in the left footwell wall about 4inch forward of the drivers door, it does not look like a handle, just like a cover plate

If the check engine light is on look at the faults. It could be a defective cam sensor, the timing belt might not be in the place, or a defective mass air flow sensor.

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in. (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.) Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

get a one man bleeder kit from halfords (about £7) and then you can go around the car and bleed the brakes without a assistant, you just attach the tool to the nipple on the caliper, loosen the nut, press the brake pedel a few times till there is no more bubbles in the hose and then move on to the next corner, there is a specific way to go around the car but if you start at the back and finish at the front it should be ok

If you're asking this question, I two assumptions 1) that it's your first time because clutch replacement procedure is generally the same as any make of vehicle. It requires allen and 12pt bits (spline drive) so you can remove the starter, bell housing, CV joints and specially a 30mm x 6pt x 1/2 deep socket. A 1/2" drive torque wrench is needed as well to torque everything down to spec. If this doesn't deter you from doing it yourself then a public library usually has Clymers or Chilton service manuals for most vehicles available for reference. So my other assumption is you don't have a manual and need free information. Good luck and always let Safety be a priority.
