    1. The trick is that if you use a socket extension,...

      The trick is that if you use a socket extension, you can press down on it from above. May also be possible with a short plier to increase leverage on it. But yeah, bare fingers = too stiff.

      No you don't, if it's that hard something is wrong. Take a socket extension and push down on it. Should spring up upon release. You should only feel the spring resistance in the can which is stiff...

      Yes. The pic is from my site, I don't stop hotlinkers but why post here instead of where you got the pic? I have a long article on how to test the VNT actuator and a video on youtube.

      I would avoid the TDI. You won't recoup the fuel savings and not worth the trouble and extra money. Long story short, short trips are bad for any car, worse for TDI's engine and emissions system. ...

      Sure, it won't hurt. Watch out for breaking off the glow plug tips though, if they're the original ceramic, some of these have broken off in the head. I'd use antiseize and remember torque is only...

      I'd pass. It's not a good idea to build a car you could cheaply buy. For the amount of time and effort and probable repair costs, you'd be better off working more and making more money and just...

      Oh, well I guess he did crack it since I wrote that guide :) However, if you look at his compatible cars list, it doesn't include the 2007-2008 Jetta. Not sure why.

      In any case, his stuff costs...

      I have, try a mk5 with the SMF and DMF and you'll see the difference. As I noted, "It's a combination in variance in the dual mass flywheel and the drive by wire engine tuning". It's not just the...

      As far as I know, no. They changed something in 2007 with the Jetta and no aftermarket solution yet. 2010 they changed the key completely.

      Bring all your keys to the dealer. FYI, they pay each...

      This has nothing to do with low end power and torque. If you look at a dyno chart it's got plenty. It's a combination in variance in the dual mass flywheel and the drive by wire engine tuning. Get...

      You can use a CJAA actuator with a custom bracket. The CJAA actuator can be purchased separately.

      Or cut it open, reseal the diaphragm and reseal the can with epoxy.
