on a golf, depending on the model, its not a hard job at all.. just make sure you do it right and make sure everything is torqued to the right spec.my car, a 94 golf GL 2.0L gas automatic, was a bit of a chore because you have to remove a motor mount to do it. the first thing you can do to save yourself alot of hassle and cursing is remove the battery and battery tray. if you find this hard to do then stop now and take your car to a garage.after you've removed the tray, use a jack and locate the lift arm just between the oil pan and the tranny (theres an obvious flat spot) just lift the engine enough to release tension on the motor mount (maybe 4-5 inches high: to account for suspension travel too).step 1: disconnect all wiring from the starter motorstep 2: remove the bolt through the top of the motor mount at the front of the engine. the engine wont move.. at least it shouldn't yet.step 3: remove the bolt through the power steering line mount clipstep 4: remove the rest of the bolts holding the starter motor in placestep 5: extract the starter motor by pulling it straight out of the transmission.step 6: replace starter in the exact opposite way you removed it.be sure to torque the motor mount bolt to factory spec (check your manual)step 7: lower the lift jack under the carand that should be all.. its really not a difficult job, on a difficulty scale, maybe a 4/10.hope this helped... - Jeff

Yes, it is a Golf but VW stopped calling it the "VW Golf... GTI". Just as VW didn't call the R32 a Golf (although it is based on the VW Golf and has the same shape and many common components).

It depends if it has pulleys on the front look for the water pump and replace. Now VW puts there belt systems on the rear of the motor it could be on the back of the motor.

It is located in the engine block on the front of the motor. Its to the right of the oil sender and under the forward motor mount.

One can purchase a VW Golf MK3 at a car dealership. The best location to purchase a VW Golf MK3 would be a Volkswagen retailer. One can also purchase a VW Golf MK3 at a used car dealership.
