Instrument panel removal


I suggest you invest in a 1 year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com It is what I used when I disassembled the dash on my car, and is way better than a paper manual. Another tip is to keep some zip lock bags, and a sharpie handy, and seperate and label all hardware that you remove to help your reassembly

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.
