Why would want to take the battery cable off anyhow ??? Buy an ohm meter , I think your VW has an early Bosch fuel injection system and that the clicking noise is from the fuel injection , or relays

Thank all im going to try the ammeter and see what i can conclude. Is there anything beside the alternator that can cause a car to die within a day or two? And i just put a brand bew battery in it aswell.
