Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.
All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta Charging problem
problem is that the voltage regulators on the 1.8t which I am sure is the same on the TDI alternator....is that they may work fine when they are cold....but once they warm up is when they start acting up and causing problems. I assume is has to do with some resistor over heating. This is just a common problem noticed by most people over at VWvortex.com.
So you can take your alternator to get tested but if it is tested cold then well it may appear to be working ok. When in reality it is broken. Trust me...it is a cheap enough part and easy enough to fix to not just try it. Some can even change the regulator without taking the alternator out. If you have small enough hands I can see it being done.

SOURCE: VW Jetta ESP issue
unless there is a ESP button (some cars have this feature, yours does not) no u can't turn it off. Have the system scanned by the dealer for trouble codes to help isolate the problem

My 2002 Jetta TDI had similar symptoms and research revealed that that model transmission (01M) is plainly and simply, a heap of **** . If you want to be done with it, you can have a used manual installed for about half what replacement with another POS would cost. If you are mechanically inclined, you can follow the procedure outlined on www.tdiclub.com to do it yourself, or if you are lucky, there is a "Guru" near you who can do it for you. (I wouldn't let a dealer touch it though!) I did the swap myself just about a month ago, and I LOVE driving my car again. No comparison between that old slush box and a manual with TDI torque.
