SOURCE: removing a 2005 2.0 jetta volkswagen battery

Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight.  Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet.  Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down.  Next disconnect battery cables.  Hold those out of the way.  pull battery forward and up.  Install in reverse order.  Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules.  Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset.  This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom.  The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.

SOURCE: 1999 Volkswagen Jetta overheating

If it was the water pump you should know very quickly. It would be very loose and woobly. It should be leeking out of the front of the block. Trying bringing it to a jiffy lube that does a high pressure antifreeze treatment. They will be able to free up any flow obsrtuctions or tell you if you need a new thermostat.

My 06 Jetta 2.5L has a maintenance wrench, clock and 700 showing where the odometer is when I turn my car on. What does that mean? Thanks for your help.

It means your car needs to be serviced. You are probably at a recommended mileage service.
