I used as a reference the Bentley Publishers VW Jetta Service Manual
(2005-2010) as well as a couple of very good write-ups which can be found
at the following links. Many thanks to those who took the time to document
and share the information at these links.
I obtained the Mann Fuel Filter from IDPARTS.COM (formerly TDIPARTS.COM),
UPS Ground Shipping was free with them. Amazon.com also offers the same
Mann Fuel Filter for those who are exclusive to Amazon.

Everyone remembers yesterday's diesels had trouble starting in the cold.
But Volkswagen claims its TDI Clean Diesels' direct injection technology
allows them to start at temperatures down to -40°. To put them to the
test, the company wheeled a new Golf TDI into a freezer to simulate the
winter temperatures of Yakutsk, Siberia, the world's coldest city. More

Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
2009 VW Jetta SportWagen. At first glance, the words sport and wagon dont
seem a likely fit, but toss the Volkswagen name into the mix and suddenly
the idea has new merit. Combining the sporty handling and well-appointed
interior of the Jetta sedan with the versatile cargo hold of a wagon, the
Jetta SportWagen holds strong appeal to families with SUV-sized needs but
an economy-minded budget. Big enough to fit two child seats and still have
plenty of room for cargo, the Jetta SportWagen also excels in the areas of
fuel economy and fun-to-drive attitude. Theres even a clean-diesel model
that can achieve up to 41 miles per gallon in highway driving. For more new
