YES. you have to pull the steering wheel off and then there is a convex washer that is holding it on that is really not a fun job and without tools not a possible job. good idea to go to dealership. or bad things could happen.

92 vw jetta,wont start,runs for3 seconds,when i turn ignition switch on,nodash lights,only battery light appears,no other lightslightup like before,locks work,dont understand what to do now


Is this a 92 Jetta like you describe or a 02 Jetta TDI? If it's a 92 Jetta, I can almost guarantee the ignition switch is bad. Common failure. They're cheap, but require special tools and experience to remove.

Is there anything special or important to know about replacing the front brakes on an '06 VW Jetta?


Depends on how handy you are???, there are no tricks or special tools required, you will more than likely require the disc rotors to be replaced at the same time as these brakes tend to wear down as a pair, these also are easy to repalce as they are only held onto the stub with a couple of screws.

Is there any special tricks to replacing Front & Rear brakes on 2003 VW Jetta TDI? Tools req'd?


The rear brakes require a specail tool, as they screw in. The tool can be bought at any auto parts store. It looks like a box with little tips on it. The front is like any other car and with a C clamp can be compressed.

Are any special tools required or any special process to change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Jetta? I have changed pads on BMW's Fords Chevys etc....but you never know, so I thought I'd ask. thanks!


These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

How do I check the transmission fluid level 2002 Jetta Tdi ?


Incorrect. There is no dipstick, but it's not sealed. On the front of the trans there is a 17mm allen head fill hole. On the lower driverside there is a drain. Don't have a 17mm? The lugnuts for the wheels are 17mm. Flip a lug nut in the allen and put a flat wrench on it.

No special tools, no special fluid and no special computers.

Hi there, I have a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Flair 2. I've had the car for about a year now and overall it's been an excellent car for it's age. However, there's always something that needs to be fixed and lately I've had throttle response problems. I do not have any mechanical backround, so I will describe it as best as I can. For one, it seems apparent this is an issue when the engine is cold (or not sitting in the sun all day). I will put the foot down, and it won't respond until it gets to about 3000rpm (right around when I'm thinking about changing gears), and then it rocket ships forward. Before it finally responds, there's a lot of shaking going on in the engine bay. It doesn't sound pleasant either. I took it in for an oil change, and they put fuel injector in it and it seemed to be a temporary solution. Whatever the case, there's a poor connection between me putting the throttle down and the car responding to the action. I do rev it up before I get going, but it's kind of futile. So as a result, I have a tendency to stall in first gear at low speeds as the gas doesn't react when I want it to, and the clutch is usually released by that point. After about 5-10 minutes of constant driving, it will accelerate smoothly. If you can point me in the right direction, whether it's "fuel" related, or it's some sort of heat sensor (I have no idea what I'm talking about), let me know if you've had similar experiences. All my repairs have cost me less than a 100 each time, I want to keep it that way.
