Question about 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio
It did not seem to have screw or torque attached to airbag to remove or unscrew.
You need an airbag removal/release tool. Buy it on ebay $15-17. Worth of buying it (dealer charges $280) to take off and install it back. Do not use any screwdrivers or similar tools. With a screw driver you will spend precious hours without any result. With the tool only 5 sec. There are two slots on the back of the steering wheel. Disconnect the battery (you will loose your radio code though) While the slot is on the top insert the tool in the slot tillted down (handle up), using your imagination or best tacktile feelings find the wire spring with the grove of the tool and change the angle of the tool by pressing down on the handle, this will release the spring and one side of the bag will pop out. Turn the wheel 180 degrees make sure the other slot is on top now, repeat the procedure with the other spring. The depth of the tool insertion varies, try to find the deepest possible insertion first and back out just a little bit until you feel that you caught that wire. That wire itself is the metal slot. By inserting the tool in the back of the airbag you can't hurt anything there. Everything is designed to withstand an unexperienced intruders. When the other side of the airbag pops out disconnect the airbag: have someone who knows how to disconnect the airbag plugs.

THis is common Too common. As I posted before.
As I posted in the Passat questions.
The jetta may slightly differ.
Yes. If your window has fallen down and will not roll up.
99% Chance you car is suffering the Infamous VW plastic clip.
The door panel comes off With a T-10 torx or a Hex (Allen) wrench
that will fit and A large Philips Screw Driver..
Remove the Plastic cover on the inside Door handle.
And the Screw or Screw along the Bottom of the door panel.
Then remove the screws that hold the handle the the door.
They are located behind the Plastic plate you removed with a tiny screw driver earlier... Be careful not the mark up the cover whaytprying it up. It is best to pry from underneath. Where marks if made can not be seen
After the screws are out 4 I believe. The Use of a CLip tool ir best.
For getting behind the panel to pop it off. A screw driver will work.
After all the clips are released. Pull the light at the bottom of the panel down and out. Disconnect it ur push it back thought the hole it came from..
Now you need a 10mm socket, or wrench to remove the 12 bolts that hold the metal plate to the Door. Remove all the 10mm bolts, If the widow has not already fallen in the door. It should be released. By removing the Black 2" plugs. THe loosen the bolts that clamp the window the the arms. DO NOT LOOSEN THEM ALL the way, .
Disconect the all the wiring.. THe Door lock cable,can be a pain.
I think it pulls down,.
Next remove the Metal plate. that is the regulator.
reverse to install

You'll have to bring your car to the dealer with proof of registration proving the car is yours. They should be able to get the code right there for you
