First you remove the engine cover.
1. Unclip the two metal clips.
2). Unclip the MAF sensor and pull out of the way.
3). Undo the air intake or undo the clip right behind the box area.
4.) wiggle and work the cover out of the engine compartment.
Turn cover upside down (place on something soft, as to not scratch the top).
3) restore mounting bushings if you haven't done so yet.4) Depending on how you took off the cover, remove the intake hose and the clamp.5) Loosen 8 screws NO NEED TO REMOVE!
6) Separate cover halves from the front. Slowly, as there are hinges at the rear (by heatshield).
7) With pieces apart, change air filter.

When putting pieces back together, start with the hinge, and hold the air filter--so it doesn't fall out. Make sure screws are still pulled out, or cover won't seal.
Follow steps in reverse to restore cover back to service.

That's it, you are done, good luck & i hope this helps FixYa up.

It sounds like you are in the right area. Try the Seafoam throttle body cleaner. This will be the most effective for what you are trying to do. I have a VW shop for manual for that car if you would like it. email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com and I will send it to you.

Volkswagen recommends only to check the timing belt & tensioner first time at 90,000 km, then every 30,000 km. Renew as necessary.
CAUTION: The most important fact is that the car is 10 years old. Do NOT drive the car without timing kit renewal !!!

To remove the B pillar, use a flathead screwdriver, or trim removal tool, to remove the AIRBAG logo from the B pillar. Behind the airbag logo are T25 screws. Remove them, and be careful not to drop them into the pillar. If you drop them, pour some liquor out, because those homies are gone.
Unclip the pillar to allow access to the side airbag, then remove it. Refit all in reverse order.

the notorious vw brake light switch!!! what color is your switch, black? purple? green? and are you installing it correctly? you should have the green one for i think it is the latest and greatest revised switch. super easy to do... T20 torx bit to remove panel remove plug from brake switch, turn CCW to remove, take new switch, and W/O pushing the pedal(IMPORTANT!!!) insert new switch and give it a click CW to seat it in place! reinstall connector and panel. let me know if that helps!

the parts guy at a volkswagen dealer comes to mind, but that is just me.

If the Quantum engine is the 1.7l (4 cylinder) engine, it should fit. The main difference will be that the engine in the Quantum is mounted "front-to-back" while the GTI will have the motor mounted "side-to-side". All of the accessories, the intake system, exhaust system and other items will have to be retained from the GTI motor.
Personally, I would think that this would be a lot more work and have a much greater chance for issues than a more simple swap with a standard VW engine.

This also happened on my car. one of the arms that pushed up the window became disconnected over time. I removed the door panel and re attached the clips that held the arm in place.
Hope this helps.

No its not normal, youll need to check for coolant and if it has a resovoir make sure its not low.VW on the waterpump uses a plastic propellor and it tend to slip of and not propell the cooling fluid as it is supposed to, you are at the beggining of a internal waterpump failure,watch your temperature carefully and get the water pump replaced soon
