Normal story with car nerds.... This spark plug isnt that bad, but we will still go ahead and change it.... ;)

Simple, concise, all questions I had about the video were answers; overall great video. Thanks Mick
Mike Jones (5 months ago)
Thanks! This is one of the most informative start to finish videos I’ve seen. Thanks for showing how to remove the cover. Other videos usually start with the cover already removed and the narrator says “okay, first remove the cover as you can see I’ve done”.

There’s a hack that you take two zip-ties or shoelaces and hook it underneath the coil head and pull it out.

I found oil on one of the ignition coil bad or good?

I have a 2007 GTI, These videos are super helpful, Here in Newfoundland, Canada. Labour costs at a Volkswagen dealership are typically super expensive, These walkthroughs make it easy to do the work myself.

Thinking of checking those out since I have fuel cuts / loss of power and couldn't figure it out why is this happening yet :) Thanks for the in-depth video

The engine cover @7:00 is hilarious. Jelly on a Golf, jelly on a Golf, wibble wobble, wibble wobble, jelly on a Golf.

i think the 1st ignition coil was not properly sit on the engine head
David Gruen (7 months ago)
yipee5247 in fact I tried to hammer it but it doesn’t seem to get in there at all.
Put ceramic greese on the threads . And remember to put the coils in line so that you dont mix them up if you dont do one by one

Thank you. Very clear and brief instruction.

Great help seeing how you removed the coil harness connectors. The ones on my '07 GTI stuck a bit after 160000 miles of use, so a little bit of spray lube helped free up those plugs.

Nice Vid, thx for that. How many mm is the sparkplug tool? (don't know the name in Englisch). Thx!
sokha chhor (2 years ago)

Do you have to set the gapping on the spark plugs?

Platinum spark plugs need to be calibrated?

When you disconnect the battery...should use a memory saver device..or you will loose all your radio presets and some engine codes

Mahmoud nasereddin (3 years ago)
why we should remove battery's neqative terminal?
Mike Jones (5 months ago)
Good question. Safety!! The Negative wire goes to the body/frame already. By removing it, if you accidentally dropped a wrench on positive (or starter motor, which is where positive wire attaches directly) and other end touches the engine or body it won’t arc, because battery isn’t making a full loop. If you removed positive you could still make a full loop between positive pole and body and possibly blow up the battery. Always remove the negative side on a modern car. Just beware that very old tractors (1950’s and before) may be reversed. Personally I also like to cover the positive with a cap or glove just for extra paranoia/ safety. Leave it hooked up. Just so that I don’t drop a wrench across both exposed poles.
Athul Nair (2 years ago)
+Joe Kungson Usually it is the negative terminal which we remove. Fiddling with positive first could lead to sparks, while negative is still connected. So during repair works negative is removed..
Joe Kungson (3 years ago)
+MicksGarage1 I think POSITIVE side should be removed instead Negative terminal side.
