    How’s it going y’all? The alternator in my 2016 Jetta sport went bad and I cannot find a replacement. I’ve searched far and wide. The issue I’m having is that the alternator that was in my Jetta has one pin on the pigtail connector. Every replacement has 2 pins. I have had zero luck figuring...

    There's certainly a few ways to remove the alternator on a 2016 VW Golf Sportwagen SE. Has there been a definitive approach to removing the alternator? Literally, my alternator is removed, but it's just floating around my engine bay (on a rope). My car is jacked and solid so I have...
