That sounds like a bad ground wire. You may have mice eating wires. Try gently shaking the changer to see if its a loose connection. the noise will go away if its a loose connection there. if not it may need a pro to find the wire problem. if you have access to the cd changer wiring, unplug it entirely and see if the noise goes away.

These had few vac' lines . There is one from the carb' to the distributor and it was originally a steel line with rubber hosed ends and looped above carb' to stop fuel running into distributor vacuum canister.

On other models there was one for emission charcoal canister under rear fender and another from under carb on intake to clutch servo to operate the semi automatic transmission clutch..

EFI equipped engines are another story however and you will need a schematic ...... try www.thesamba.com..... this is a VW community with many posters who can help further.

Also late cars had lines running to gas tank as part of the charcoal canister system.

Old school relay check, put your finger on top of the relay as someone turns the key on/not running, you can actually feel the relay closing, a little click/thump sensation under your finger. If you don't feel it, swap relay with similar non essential relay and see if it starts. easy fix, huh, go to parts store, buy a $20 relay. Same thing happened to me, as you describe, and it was shift linkage sensor, basically telling car it wasn't in park/neutral, so it wouldn't start

the kit that you will buy is made specifically for that vehicle and all fitting instructions will be included
however as the car is ECM controlled it is critical as to which wires are used
it is really not a diy job but should be left to the shops that do it for a living

my advise to you is that:
Your VW problem is the throttle body, (good news) it doesn't need replacement, it only needs to be cleaned out, and even better if a good technician (know what he is doing) can run an adaptation procedure.
this will restore the ZERO position for the TPS and relearn the target engine idle speed.
Good luck.
Note: you are in my prayer.

A common fault is air in the fuel system caused by a fuel pump failure or just a simple pin hole in the fuel pipe allowing air into the fuel instead of fuel.

First check the oil level. pull out dipstick with engine off, wipe, and re-"dip" it to see . If the level is O.K., it may be serious . See a mechanic.

I'm sure this problem was resolved LONG ago, but I just had to mention this to anyone else who might be hearing a noise like this. I drive a 2002 Turbo S and I too thought something was seriously wrong with my car day I first bought it. If your car is a Turbo it has a rear spoiler that pops out when you accelerate to about 40mph. It stays out until you stop the car, and makes a LOUD clunking noise when it disengages. The noise is not nearly as loud when you accelerate, but can be startling for those who don't expect it when the car stops. I have only driven the one Turbo with the spoiler, so I can't say whether they all make so much noise, but mine always has.
