Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Volkswagen Jetta - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today on this 2006 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan we are going to be installing
part number 11072 from Curt. The first thing we are going to need to do is
lower the under body panel on the passenger side by removing the three hex
screws along with the two plastic bolts. There are going to be three
mounting locations on this side. Two locations on the bottom side of the
frame are going to be these locations here. Then there is going to be one
on the side of the frame that is at this location here. :47
Next we are going to go ahead and lower the Exhaust bracket by removing the two 13millimeter
bolts because that is actually two of the mounting locations that we are
going to be putting our hitch into on our drivers side. As you can see we
are in the trunk here. That is going to be the third mounting location for
our hitch, it is the grommet that is the forward most grommet on the driver
side of the vehicle. Now we are going to pry that up. We will take some
silicon sealant and put it around the edge here. And take our large washer
and carriage bolt and it in position. 1:24
As you can see we put some silicone on the bottom of that to ensure the
seal is good. We are going to go back under the vehicle now on the
passenger side and fish wire our hardware into place using the bolt leader
that was included in the installation kit. The first thing we are going to
do is take our bolt leader and run it through where we are going to be
pulling through our hardware, through this access hole towards the front of
the vehicle. We are going to take our block, put it over the top of the
bolt leader and screw our smaller carriage bolt in. Push them through and
pull it into position just like that. Do the same thing for the other
mounting location. 2:13
The next step is putting our hitch up into position and screwing in our
flange nuts on our hardware that we just put in position. As well as
replacing the stock hanger bolts with the new ones that are provided in the
installation kit. It is probably best to have a second set of hands to hold
the hitch up while you are threading in your flange nuts. Now that we have
our bolts hand tightened we are going to fish wire our remaining carriage
bolt on the passenger side side frame rail. We are going to take our
remaining flange nut and put it in position. We are going to go ahead and
tighten down all the bolts that we put in position and tighten them as
specified in the instructions. Now that we have all our bolts tightened and
torqued down, as you can see here where our under body trim panel used to
go the hitch is kind of in the way. So what we are going to do is holdup
our under body trim panel here and mark where we are going to trim and then
put it back in position around the hitch itself. We already went around and
cut it around our hitch so we are going to go ahead and put it in position
We are going to take a couple measurements for you so you can see the
different clearances for your hitch accessories. From the center of the
hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper is approximately 6 inches. From
the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening is approximately 10-1/2
inches. that will conclude the install of part number 11072 on this 2006
Volkswagen Jetta Sedan.

seconds. If Engine shuts down, restart engine (this method is not
preferred. it is bad for your High Pressure Fuel Pump).
NOTE: Turning key to turn on Accessories does not turn on the fuel pumps,
from what I have read, only when the key is turned to Ignition (Engine
A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009
VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ).
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.
VW 1.6L Diesel Engine Start
This 1.6L diesel and 5-speed was removed from a 1983 Volkswagen Jetta. I
put on a new head gasket and timing belt in winter 2008, drove it a few
miles and then it sat until now. Decided to junk the car. It has the old
slow-glow plugs, which is why I heat them for so long. I just got it to
fire and running for about five seconds prior to shooting the video.
Sitting for two years and it starts right up. . .these engines are the
rough jetta tdi cold start
rough 25F cold start of my 04 pump duse jetta tdi. the dealer supposedly
installed 4 new glow plugs and did a ecu reflash as part of a recall. it
also has a brand new battery, it shouldn't be this hard to start.
EDIT: i no longer have this car.
