Have you posted these questions at Fred's www.tdiclub.com? Are these
questions on the Passat or Jetta?

Greetings all!

I have been on the list for a while now, just don't post very often...

The wife bought a Jetta Wagon, and I got the 96 Passat TDI ~180K miles

A few questions

How the %%%% do you change the light bulb for the heat controls?  I have
had about 3/4 of the dash apart, and still could not pull the control
unit out to get at that bulb!

When on the freeway, if I floor it, when it gets to about 75-80 ~ 3000
RPM under load, then, it is like someone flicks a switch -  1/2 power!
Pulls VERY slowly after that... I'm thinking wastegate?

The air filter and fuel filter are fairly new.

Also, are the glow plugs as easy to change as it looks?

Thank You All!
