I would call first, but most of the chain auto parts stores will do a scan on your computer and that will tell you what problems have been stored over time. This is a free service since they would like to sell you some parts if they can steer you toward them.
The memory in in your ECU will keep track of errors that occur even after the check engine light is happy.

Could be a few things, I assume you've checked the oil level. You could have a worn engine and therefore low oil pressure, could need a new oil pump. you can connect a mechanical oil guage to check whether it is a problem with your guage

Sometimes the lock needs lubrication. Spray in a little WD40, or drip a little oil from the dipstick onto the key and insert it. One time some vindictive person broke off a stick in my wife's lock. I managed to pulverize the stick with a drill.

Look at the base of the headrest there is a small button which looks as if it is part of the moulding.

Pulls the headrest up as far as it will go then depress that button rock the headrest side to side as you press and it will come out

They have to be pressed in. VW dealers can do it on the car. The other solution is to remove the steering knuckle and get the bearings over to a machine shop and have them fix it.

Your engine oil should be as follows

for cold climate 5W/30 semi-synth
for moderate climate 15W/40 semi-synth
for hot climate 20W/50 semi-synth
alternative moderate climate 10W/40 semi-synth

Your coolant system holds 10ltrs from empty you will be able to get this from your VW dealer (just use red or blue anti-freeze)

If its running fine on 95 benzine but you would be better putting a higher benzine in the car.

check fuse number 17 in fuse block if ok check bulbs <you said they turn on just don't flash so thats ok> the relay feeds power to the switch cluster but the flasher unit itself is built into the combo switch for turn signal/hazard switch

Very simple.... I had this problem and it drove me Crazy.... your gearbox engine mount is gone. When you look at it it will look fine but when under load it moves. creating the knocking noise..

Use a crowbar (Very carefully) to move the engine to check.

Go to your public library and check out a service manuel for your specific car in the manuel will be the procedure for changing oil and other important info specific to your car including changing your oil filter

Most Golf and Jetta have their relays bunched together with the fuse block. Often, it would be inside the fuse box/compartment located under the facia panel, on the right-hand side, behind a removable cover. On most models, the flasher relay would be labeled 21.

Incidentally, sometime ago, there was a recall on some Golf where Volkswagen dealers will install a new hazard flasher switch/relay kit to remedy a common issue. You may want to try first Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
