Check the alternator pulley it has a one way clutch in it. Remove the belt then get a screwdriver, use it to stop the alternator turning and turn the alternator pulley you should be able to turn it one direction but not the other. One thing I will say is the alternator pulley is a common failure.

You need to remove the sump pan off the gearbox but what looks like a drain plug on the sump is actually a gearbox filler level tube. You may also find a drain plug on the torque converter. Remove the sump pan and you will find the filter screwed to the bottom of the valve body The problem you will face is filling the gearbox oil to achieve the correct level a computer is needed to measure gearbox oil temperature. With the gearbox oil at 30 centigrade you need one drip out of the filler level every 10 seconds.

My Audi A4 has a manual crank spot under a flip cover just in front of the roof on the ceiling. If your roof is opening randomly, it may be just bent contacts for the switch (this is known on the A4). Remove the sunroof switch from the headliner, take the switch itself off the mount, and you'll see the contacts underneath. Bend them more vertical so they can contact the switch knob more easily, and try it out. This fixes the problem on the A4 and your Golf likely has a similar design.

IT may have been damaged by someone trying to break into your car. The little keys in the lock may have been broken. You would have to get a new tumbler fitted.

It will have to be a defective master or slave cylinder. All it may need is to hone the cylinders and a new set of cups.

The diagnostic socket is behind a removable section of facia in the centre section of the dash. Locate the stereo, directly below, but just above the ashtray, you will see the cover, it just pulls off.
