Hi there from Poland!
It's been two years since I own a mk3 Jetta. She has 2.0L ABA engine with manual gearbox. I'm a proud owner. I manage to do all mechanic stuff by myself. I did a lot, but still it's much more to do.
My biggest problem is, that there is extraordinary hot inside, only on driver's side. The heat causes not only unpleasant driving, but also heats pedals, steering column, metal under the dashboard and much more. They're hot when you touch it.
My question is, have anyone of you met with such a thing?
Could You help me in this case?
