  1. Mk5 VW Jetta, Sportwagen, and Audi A3 TDI forum
    I bought a 06 Jetta tdi with the brm motor. I recently replaced the turbo and put the old vnt actuator on the new turbo and now when trying to drive full vacuum is applied to the actuator keeping the vanes closed all the time.

    I changed the timing belt today on my 06 TDI BRM with 192K. It was my first time changing the belt on the VW but I’ve changed timing belts many times on other vehicles. I followed the instructions from Exo VCDS on YouTube. I used the proper cam lock and crank lock and am very confident that...

    So yesterday I experienced my 2006 Jetta do what I think is entering limp mode for a short amount of time. I was getting onto the freeway passing someone when my car cut all power and would not let me accelerate unless I literally, limped the car by barely pressing the accelerator to get it to...

    So after doing the camshaft on my 2006 BRM, I started having turbo/low power issues. Upon investigation I found that there was a vacuum leak at the tandem pump outlet nipple. Turns out I must have ripped the rubber grommet/seal/nipple (whatever the name for it is) that goes on the tandem pump...

    Hey guys, Avid visitor/reader - first time posting. Love my Jetta, been my only car, never let me down. I replaced my DMF on my DSG about a week and a half ago (Luk's from idparts with new bolts and the works), changed my transmission fluid, oil change - gave the car pretty good tune up. Car...
