    2.5 Liter Gas

A dying battery can affect every system like your car is possessed. It will throw dash lights on and off for all kinds of...

    Air-cooled
    Meet my butterfly, Marmalade! He's an orange 1972 Super Beetle given to me by Mammy, our best friend's mom in Colorado. We lived together for a short time and she shared her love of sewing with me, we helped her build several planter boxes for her garden, and we fixed up some vehicles the...

    Transmission Talk

    New Beetle Parts and Accessories
    So far I have been unable to verify which codes match mine HJE, so that's what I'm looking for. So very angry that businesses are closed on weekends, especially anything car-related. I guess I'm only allowed to shop for parts and fix my car in the 3-hour window between routes. WTF do 8-5ers do?

  13. How-To: Alternator Swap 2.5L (2005-2009)

    2.5 Liter Gas
    6) First, you need to do some things to improve maneuverability. Next to the right bolt that held your compressor, you’ll see the black power steering line anchored. Take off that 10mm nut and pry the line free of that anchoring stud. There’s a metal bushing in there so don’t lose it. You’ll...

  15. Froggy's 2007 Green Frog Beetle named SAGRA!

    Photos: New Beetles
    Thank you. Sagra is still going like the froggy beetle champion that he is. Little car vrooms everywhere in 4th gear. Missing 2nd and 5th, grinds 3rd unless you're really careful. The pecan tree spanked him the beginning of October. Dropped a limb that dented the back pillar, scraped the...
