How do I remove a battery out of a 2004 VW Jetta?

I believe I have a dead battery and I need to get it off. Of course I took the cover off and removed the terminal cables but that thing won't move. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a plastic block at the bottom of the battery held down by one bolt, as the bolt tightens it wedges against the batter to hold it in position. remove the hold down and it should come right out. make sure to put this back in with the new battery. good luck!

I have a Jetta GLS that is misfiring we did a tune up replace spark plugs and wires and still doing it once on a while not all the time.


My 2004 Jetta GLI had same problem. I took it to the dealer and they informed me of Recall# 28F3 to replace the ignition coils. Replaced and fixed problem at no cost. Of course, that was until they also recommended a timing belt, tensioner, water pump replacement ($923); camshaft adjuster seal and valve cover gasket seeping ($496); and electrical cooling fan replaced ($357)... maybe so, but freakin dealers :-)

Is changing the battery hard?


No, it is quite easy - remove battery cover by appyling pressure on the covers latches. you will need a ratchet and extension to loosen the battery grip at the bottom of the battery tray, I believe its a 14 mm socket.

Battery drain


My wife's 2001 Jetta TDI had the same problem. First we changed the battery. (It was just about due anyway) No change. We then traced the power drain to the in-trunk mounted CD changer. This was an aftermarket CD changer but we went to the same source that the VW dealership uses. Of course one blames the other. The CD changer was even replaced with no change. If we are not using the car for long trips we unplug the CD changer and no more dead battery! Neither the VW dealer nor the AV installer could give us a good working solution to this problem.

Haven a hard time changing my low beam for my 2004 tdi vw jetta


This should not be very difficult. Remove the back cover of the light. Twist the old bulb and pull out. Remove plug. plug new one in and twist into place. Replace cover.

The battery side is a very tight squeeze, you may need to remove the battery. But, I was able to do it by just taking off the battery cover.
