      Will I know if any of those components are in need of replacement other than blindly replacing and hoping to find the culprit?

      I'll check the rubber areas of each mount again to see if one or the...

      Repetitive clunking as in [clunk, clunk, clunk ...] but it is not constant, only under "load" when in too high of a gear matched with too low of a rpm. Or the opposite of that, too high of a rpm and...
    4. Repettive clunking noise coming from front of car under sudden downshift or under acceleration going uphill

      2000 MK4 Jetta w/ 2.0 AEG and 5-spd manual trans (02J??)

      Just noticed that when under sudden downshift (usually 4th to 3rd), where I let the rpm's climb closer to 4k after releasing the clutch, I...

      If you'd be willing to meet halfway between your location and 18013 I'll make a good offer.

      Thanks for the replies everyone, I'll see if I can find a mechanic willing to do the job for a reasonable price.
    8. Is it possible to replace rear axle beam bushings on a MK4 Jetta?

      I was under the car the other day and noticed that the bushing for the rear axle beam (passenger side) is loose and has some play in it (approx. 3/4"), is this normal? And if not, can I replace the...

      Interestingly this is the third caliper that has failed on me, the first two over the past 60K miles.
    10. Rear pads on one side are shot and caliper piston keeps spinning, does it sound like a bad caliper?

      Car is a 2000 MK4 Jetta.

      Passenger side pads are worn completely and when I try to compress the caliper piston it just spins (doesn't compress at all).

      Driver side pads and caliper piston...

      I noticed that the rear doors on my car do not have the plastic plug nor the T20 bolt as is the case on the front doors.

      There must be a different method for removing the key blank on the rear...
    12. Did my head unit just die (probably something simple, but I don't know what it is)?

      I wired in a Kenwood KDC-248U a few years ago (MK4 Jetta), and it has a USB port which I connect my iPhone to to run Pandora.

      Today it worked fine at first, then it wouldn't read the iPhone (but...

      Thank you for the information.

      I'll give that a try when I gain access to my tools.
    14. Key blank on my MK4 Jetta popped off, how do I put it back on, or is it broke (pics inside)?

      Popped off in the cold weather, it doesn't appear to be secured to the door by nothing more than adhesive, but I'd like to know...

      I think $130 but I also knew someone at the dealership so that is employee-price, not sure what it would be without a discount.

      But based on my experience with junkyards they'll charge you almost...

      Same exact thing happened to me on my 99.5 Jetta.

      I believe it's just the piece at the end of the ignition cylinder where your key first sticks in that requires re-keying. Notice that there is a...

      Does the car need to be off the ground in order to torque the strut bearings? Or can I do it as it sits with full weight...
    18. Squeaking when turning steering wheel left and right (not in drive) and under downhill braking, many parts already replaced.

      So I've got an MKIV Jetta and have a noticeable squeak when I turn the steering wheel right and left while sitting in my driveway as well as when turning slowly in drive. The sound reminds me of...

      I want to buy the cable but I don't see the link for my vehicle. All I see for $99.99 is the VCDS-Lite registration, does this include a cable?

      Thanks for the advice.

      I took a look at the speed sensor today and noticed the magnet was covered in rust and metal filings, so I cleaned it off (with battery disconnected) and also cleaned the...
