I ran a VCDS scan on my 2011 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI SOHC

Customer Question

I ran a VCDS scan on my 2011 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI SOHC 4cyl and it threw codes P0300, P0303, and P0302, amongst others. I'd love to change the spark plugs to see if that solves the problem, however I am unable to locate anything to explain how to get the engine cover off, let alone complete the replacement. I need help because I don't want to create a bigger problem trying to fix this one.

Fantastic! Would it help for me to post the VCDS readout in its entirety? That way you might be able to tell if new plugs would even help.
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Yes that would help, I would like to see all the codes you have.

Ok, that didn't work as planned....I'll attach the document
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

The first thing I would do is move the coils around on cylinders 2 and 3 and see if the misfire goes to 1 and 4.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I considered that as well; however, I find myself in the same predicament as before. I have a great mind when it comes to troubleshooting theory. It is the practical knowledge to do so that bites me in the rear.

That seems a bit intense just to access the coil packs
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

I would replace the coils on cylinders 2 and 3 and the intake gasket. Hate to do the job twice.
