One nice visual element of the Jetta is when you open the hood and see a nice clean engine compartment with a stylized cover. While the cover looks nice, it has to be removed for most maintenance procedures and projects in the engine bay.

Begin by opening the hood and locating the cover on top of the engine. Pull the dipstick out of its holder and set it aside. Now loosen and remove the 10mm nut at the rear of the cover. Simply pull up on the cover to release it from the engine.

Pull the dipstick (green arrow) out of the engine and set it aside.
