Most likely, since its a 2000, MAF.....which will be replaced for free, as per TSB, extended warrantee of 7 yrs and 70,000 Miles on the Bosch MAF, again, IIRC.

you can check through VAG.COM if there's anybody in your area with a vag, in order to avoid paying the dealer a $90 diagnostic fee.....

Hope this helps...

No way to tell for sure unless you check for fault codes stored in
the ECU.  There are hundreds of possible causes of the CEL, and VAG-COM
(or ProDiag if you use PalmOS) is your friend.
