      Wouldn't hurt to try there. I'd just let them know up-front why I'm posting there -- the fact that your 2010 Jetta looks like a Mk5, but has the electronics of a Mk6.

      Oh... maybe. Housings on Mk5's are the same for RHD vs. LHD countries, I'm pretty sure... except for being mirror-image (pun intended).

      OK, there are (at least) two issues here.

      First, the instructions you're referencing here only apply for sure to 2009 and earlier Mk5's. Your 2010 Jetta looks like a Mk5, but it has Mk6...

      Yup, I'm well-aware of how coolant smells. Never a good sign if you smell it around the car. :)

      Yup. Imagine that -- state inspection stations have wised up to the fact that owners with faulty emissions systems will try to clear the codes just before coming in for the test. :rolleyes:
