Actually, the best way to deal with it is to get one from a junkyard or eBay. Same box as Jetta.

No dash lights in a 1995 volkswagon golf? what do you check first?

Very common problem in MKIII Jettas & Golfs. You have to remove the instrument cluster (not that hard-just expose the 4 screws holding it). Once you pull the cluster out just clean the top illumination bulbs along the printed circuit strip, They are never blown, just dirty & will work again. Assemble & see again.

Drivers side door lock barrel fell out???

This is a common fault on A4 VAG cars (Mk 4 Golfs, Skoda Octavias, Seat Leon, Beetle, Audi TT , Audi A3) you will need to remove the door card from the inside. Repair kits are available so it may be possible to repair the lock barrel but for the effort htat is required to remove the door card I would replace the lock barrel rather than repair it.
