SOURCE: 03 passat gaitor replacement

Hi, The knob does twist off and they can be on very tight the best way of doing this without breking the gear stick is to get mole grips or a good wrench and hold this tight onto the gearstick so as when you try turning the know you can then hold the gearstick steady.
You might need someone else to hold the mole grips or similar tool holding the gear stick so that you can undo the knob on top.

It does undo but can be tight best you get something holding the gear stick still so as not to damage the plastic cups on the bottom of the gear stick joining the linkage to the gear box as these would involve more work.
Try and get some one to hold gear stick secure whilst you undo the knob.
Hope this is some help tp you let me know if you need further assistance

SOURCE: how to change inside door locking knobs

If the knobs don't come up enough to remove (unscrew) them when unlocking with a key, you will need to remove the door panels to access them. take out the screw in the arm rest, take off the window crank and gently pop the plastic fasteners around the edges straight out, them pull door panel up and away. this should expose the knobs enough to remove, then replace the door panel and put in the new ones... Hope this helps...;-)

SOURCE: MISFIRING ON CYLINDER 1 VW POLO 1.4 3CYLINDER

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.
