This car does not have a conventional radiator cap. the cap on the overflow container (called the "surge tank") is the only opening.

Ther is no radiator cap. The cap is located on the plastic expansion tank probably on left hand side of engine when you're facing it. Be careful opening when hot.

Cant get radiator cap off

Radiator caps unscrew to a point . Then you have to press down on the cap to complete the undo process. This is a safety device that prevents the cap from completely un done under pressure and scalding the operator

Some vehicles do not have radiator caps but they have expansion tank preasure caps. You add coolant to the radiator by adding to the expansion tank.

I cant find where the radiator cap is on my 97 jetta glx to refill the radiator the reservoir is full just need to fill the radiator but dont know where???

Your overflow cap is your radiator cap. What you may want to do is check the thermostat housing for a bleeder. Just in case the thermostat housing is where your upper radiator hose mets your engine. On top of it may be a bleeder valve. Let the car come up to normal temp and open the valve slightly until antifreeze comes out then tighten it up.
