    1. 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.
    3. 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...

      Wasn't sure if you were replying to my post or not but I was wondering...

      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...
    7. 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...

      Do I need Vag-com to clear ABS codes?

      My 2000 MKIV Jetta is throwing ABS code(s) and I'm not sure what the problem is, though I suspect it is probably the speed sensor or ABS ring.

      Do I need Vag-com to pull these codes?

      If so,...

      Thanks for the replies, everyone.

      I'll post back when I find out more.

      ABS light won't go off after a brake job

      I replaced front rotors and pads with ACDelco parts and ever since the ABS light has been on. Car is a 2000 MKIV Jetta.

      I've checked and rechecked the driver side connection and cleaned it out as...

      I ended up scoring a new Bosch coil pack for cheap yesterday and put it in today, no more problems.

      '99.5 MK4 2.0 Jetta.

      Car drove fine up until today. Started sputtering at a stop light, check engine light began blinking, I immediately pull over and shut down. I smelled something funny, like...
    15. Re-Installing OEM rear springs, quick question...

      On a MKIV Jetta sedan, are the OEM springs directional (one end is up, one end is down) and does it matter so much how the end of the coil is positioned when everything is bolted in?

      Reason I ask...

      Hey appreciate it...but I did manage to get the steering wheel off yesterday. Took a while and the design is awfully stupid in my opinion, but if I have to do it again at least I'll be better at it. ...

      I have tried torx, flathead, phillips, no luck.

      I'm honestly ready to pay someone to do this yet I feel it's so easy that it could be done no problem.
    19. I seriously cannot get the airbag off and out of my MKIV and it's driving me nuts

      I've watched at least a dozen videos off youtube, read numerous threads on here and other forums, but still cannot get the airbag out of my '99.5 MKIV Jetta. I need to replace the ignition cylinder....

      It turns out that it was in fact the metal detent that broke, so I bought a new lock cylinder.

      Now my problem is trying to get the airbag off. I've watched several videos but I cannot get the...
