Replace front disc brake pads on a 2001 VW Jetta
This is a step by step video showing how I replaced the front disc brake shoes on a 2001 VW Jetta. Note that the rear disc brakes on this model are significantly more difficult, because the emergency brake is intimately associated with the rear caliper. You need special tools to do the rear. I have made some still photos of a rear caliper when I rebuilt it last year. If you want to see those, send me a youtube message.

Replace left front turn signal bulb, 2001 Jetta
On one of the the VW forums, several contributors describe accidentally breaking the plastic clip that hold the cover plate in place, when replacing the left front turn signal bulb on a 2001 Jetta. Sometimes the cover plate is frozen in place, making it difficult to remove with confidence if you are not sure how it comes apart. This video shows how to remove that cover plate without breaking it. When you know how it comes apart, the task is so much easier.
2002 Passat Vent Bulb to LED modification
First and foremost I want to thank Passatworld.com for the wealth of knowledge there. Unfortunately all of the images in the various articles are missing. Fortunately the text is still there. I thought this video might help others so I am sharing the process in removing these pain in the ass vents and how to convert the $20 bulbs from the dealers to LED so you never have to play with them again.
Xenon-Vision Bi-Xenon HID Install
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. There is NO need to disable the Daytime Running Light (DRL) module if you have the Bi-Xenon HID kit. The reason being that the DRLs will run off the low beam and will not flicker as I initially thought. If you have the non-Bi-Xenon (no HID hi-beam), then you WILL have to disable the DRLs (from what I understand).
2. If you happened to have disable the DRLs, it is likely that your interior dome light will not work, as was my experience. No idea why the DRL module is connected to the dome light but I'm not a Toyota engineer.
3. There are two things that look like grounding wires in the kit ... they actually are not. They are connected to the battery terminals. The wire coming from the two fuses go to the POSITIVE terminal while the wire coming off the control unit go to the NEGATIVE terminal. I unscrewed the nut that helps tighten the clamp around the battery and then placed the wire in between the clamp and the nut.
4. The clips only fit one way except for the one on the ballast. You will see in the video how they should connect but the red wire should go to the POSITIVE terminal.
5. There is a metal bar in the front of the car with holes in it. Run the wiring through that to ensure that the wires don't melt on the radiator or get caught in the fan (that would be bad news!).
6. Lay your wires out to get a sense of how things connect together.
7. It is normal to have one of the original headlight wiring harness not connected.
All in all, the install is very easy. I did it in about an hour and a half but if I knew what I just wrote above, it probably would have taken 30 minutes.
Hope this help anyone that is installing the Bi-Xenon kit in their Yaris! If you have any questions, please quote this post and I will do my best to answer them for you. Cheers
