SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Take your car to autozone or another parts store that will be willing to pull the OBD II diagnostic codes for free or buy an inexpensive $40-50 OBD II diagnostic reader.
I have a 05 Jetta TDI 100K miles and a 99 Passat AEB wagon 140K miles, and I don't think there is a specific Catalytic converter instrument light, just a generic check engine light to inform you to pull the OBD II codes (there are hundreds of codes your Jetta can throw ... but not hundreds of lights on the dash;~) ). If you don't overfill the car with oil, or drive like a maniac, the VW cats should last for 200-300K or better. Of course I only wore out 40% of the original front brake pads in 100K miles in the Jetta too. I know how to work on cars ... but prefer not to have to ... so I drive easy;~).
FYI - IF the cat is plugged up, your car will not have any power. If you pass emission test and have poweer ... forget about the cat, just read the codes

Here's a step-by-step from some great guys over at TDIClub.com
for an AAZ (which I'm assuming you have)
It's pretty involved, and some special tools are needed. I've seen kits for sale
