there is a module below the ignition that has to come down to access the harness. I can't figure out what is holding it up. There is 1 torx screw that I have removed but it still won't come off.

just had my friend who owns a shop do my girls 2006 jetta, they said it was a pain in the ***.

there is a door lock trigger modual that you have to get that you have to take the driver side door off to get at the lock switch module, and you also have to tap into the factory alarm to make it work.

took them all day to do it.

good luck is all i say to you

yup, my car is annoying to do anything electrical on... except when using the data port :) my car may or may not be smarter than me. it's pretty close.

Does anyone know how to get that module down? If I can get it down without breaking it I can do the remote start with no problem.

IIRC 2 10mm bolts?

everything in that car is held together with Torx bolts.

try here http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2374154

look in the interior FAQ and installing the dash cubby. that might help you. if you just want to take off the bottom plate there are a few torx bolts (i think three) on the side that is closest to the front bumper. at least thats how my GLI is, and i'm assuming it's the same.
