MKIV VW Jetta Golf Multi Function Indicator in Gauge Cluster
Posted this due to some demand from people wondering about this somewhat rare option. Properly known as the Multi-Funktions Anzeige or MFA, this came on GTI, GLI and GLX models. The winshield wiper stalk is used to toggle between the 5 modes. The button on the bottom of the stalk toggles between the "1" (saved current trip) and "2" (saved overall trip).
In the video, the displays are as follows:
1: real-time MPG readout.
2: minutes spent in car. 1 is minutes since I entered the car, and 2 is since I reset the thing at the gas station 5 minutes after starting.
3: average speed travelled. 2 is higher than 1 since I travelled nothing but highway after filling up my car
4: miles traveled. I traveled 1 mile to get to the gas station hence the discrepency
5: average MPG
6: back to the real-time readout. I gunned the VR6 to lower the MPG then I popped it into neutral to make the MPG go up to 199 (the max it will display). If you cruise down in gear it just displays "-- --" until you give it gas again, but if its in neutral it will display much higher MPG's which can throw off the average MPG readouts if you do it too much.
Apparently you can simply swap gauge clusters with one of these if you want to add this in your GL or GLS model, however I would think you'd need the wiper stalk also since it has the buttons that control the display.
Fix VW mk3 Golf/Jetta Cluster [UPDATE]

old cluster out and the one i'm currently using, and after experimenting,
turns out tach motor burns out relatively quicker than the speedometer one.
ill try to answer any questions about this.
I am no expert on this but not a total noob.
VW Golf 4 MKIV temperature error - [Solved]
Regarding my Volksvagon Golf MK4 from 1999.
I have a temperature error. Even after a 30 km ride, the in dash
thermometer shows only 60-70 degrees, even though i should be hotter. If I
turn the motor off, and put the ignition back on, the reading increases.
Usually to around the expected 90 degrees, but in this video only 80
I have checked the coolant and there are plenty. The temperature gauge have
just been replaced, The old one did exactly the same (the reason i changed
it) but the guage was apparently not the issue. Apart from this, the car is
running as it should be, but I would like a trustworthy temperatur reading.
Any help on how to fix this, would be highly appreciated.

Disabling Traction Control
So I made this video to demonstrate how to disable traction control on my
MK4 2001 Jetta 1.8t. My car did not come with the traction control button,
commonly known as ASR/ESP button.
Do this at your own risk.
I do not know if this works on any other VW car, motor, or otherwise. I do
know it does work on mine.
09 VW Jetta TDI DSG Failed Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF)
2009 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen TDI with 6-speed automated manual DSG
transmission. Knocking sound when in park. CONFIRMED at VW dealership that
it is indeed a failed DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel). $2083 + tax & shop fee's is
the estimate to replace. Car has high mileage (125k) and apparently the DMF
wears out with mileage & use, something VW doesn't tell you when you buy
these cars. Not changing your DSG fluid at regular 40k intervals speeds up
the process of the DMF failing. If ignored, the DMF will destroy your
transmission when it decides to give way costing you even more money.

Forgotten Volkswagen Single Cab
How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt?
Took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and almost 2 days to dig it out.
Have a look. Took the Syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single
cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of
digging condensed into a 15 minute video. It had been sitting in a wash
since 1967. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust
free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day
for 45 years. IF YOU HAVE A VOLKSWAGEN THAT NEEDS RESCUED OR KNOW OF ONE
GIVE US A CALL AT (208)200-6053. We also consign Volkswagens if you have
one you want to sell. Thanks Skeeters.
Thanks for all the phone calls and emails about Forgotten VW's that we have
received. This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise
forgotten VW's that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960
VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965.
We also recently returned from Mission Viejo California where we picked up
a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a
tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video. Give us
a call today if you know of one. Thanks again. Skeeters (208)200-6053

Volkswagen Jetta Removing Rear Inner Door Panel - Part 3
In this video, the inner door panel or as Volkswagen calls it, the door
carrier assembly is shown being removed. There is a lot of detail in this
video where I describe the spreader pin and spreader plug. This two piece
nylon insert holds the window to the lift rail regulator slot. Also, to
bring you along with me, I did not cut out the scenes which showed me
struggling to remove this two piece insert, although with video editing,
this step would look easy. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for
DIY - Jetta MKIV Climate control panel bulb replacement
Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Tormanator Here is a quick
tutorial on how to replace the bulb in the climate control panel in my MKIV
Jetta. When I removed the knob I noticed that the bulb had just come lose
and hadn't actually burnt out. If you have trouble removing the bulb use
some electrical or duct tape and wrap the ends of your needle nose pliers
to give a softer grip so you dont break the bulb.
