2007 Mk5. 5 speed with 78,000 mi. I drove it one day and then two days later I hopped in and it would not start. Turn the key and nothing. Battery is almost new and tests at 12.6 v. I checked the cable to the starter and is receiving 12v there. I want to check the ignition wire to the solenoid, but there is a clip around the plug end and I tried to pop it off but it doesn't budge. Is there a trick to removing the plug as I do not want to force it and break the connector. I tried prying with a screw driver, but was afraid to apply too much force. How does the cap come off? Any other suggestions or is it likely to be the starter? I bought this Rabbit new and other than routine maintenance, it has been running without drama.
