GTI has multiple knock sensors. Some of them are located in the block I think.

I am not sure how many knock sensors there are but the connector on the top of the three connector bracket on the left side of your intake is the knock sensor connector.

Number 1 in the picture.

That wire leads to the knock sensor that is connected to the block just behind the water pump. you have to remove the water pump to get to it
