  1. FS: 98-02 Headlight housing & headrests

    Marketplace Archives
    I have a JAUTO driver's side headlight housing for sale. Brand new, never installed. I had this exact same brand in my passenger side for over a year with no problems. Fits '98-02. I had just ordered this one and my bug met it's final match. Asking $80+ shipping (~$20 I would think). (The blue...
  2. Odometer and Trip are going crazy! Help!

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Yesterday I drove my car and my trip said 8 miles. Today I get in and it says 0. Okay...maybe I hit the button. I drive around town and my trip kept reseting itself. Then when I turned my car off my trip said 0.5 and it reset to 0 and my mileage went up 1. Help! I've been battling a brake...
  3. Did I make a big mistake?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I wouldn't call it wise to come on a VW enthusiast board and bash. Seriously if the previous owner took care of the car and you do to, it'll be fine! I have a 1999 with 105k and it's great. What have I recently repaired or replace? Brakes, hole in an a/c hose, timing belt/water pump, a rusty...
  4. Brake pad warning light missing?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    A few weeks ago I had the brakes changed on my car because they were very bad. Afterwards I'm reading my manual and it says I should have a warning light. Could anyone tell me what models should have this and where I could find the light? I don't see it at start up. (I have a 1999 2.0 GLS.)
  5. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    Put gas in her, put a vinyl decal on her, and cleaned off all the old brake dust.
  6. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    The beetle bug forced me to wash it! The windows were too muddy to see out of. I also installed a new front plate mounting kit.
  7. The Vw New Beetle 2

    Rumors and Insights
    NOOOOO! :( Fail VW. Unless it has a VR6, then it will be mine in a heartbeat.
  8. Beetle does not pass 5200rpm

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Why is the car considered a girl's car? All cars are unisex. Please don't be sexist. I don't think you got the original joke anyways... Anyways, why do you need to drive the car like that? There's not really any reason you should be driving it like that. Not even accelerating onto a...
  9. Exhaust rattle

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    It's at 104k and I don't think the cat as ever been replaced. I have crappy mpg but I just assumed it was because of my fuel filter needing replaced. I bet it's the cat. At least it'll be a cheaper repair. :rolleyes:
  10. Exhaust rattle

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I just noticed my exhaust is rattling. I'm very confident it's the exhaust/muffler. The only time I hear it is during starting and stopping when its cold outside. I've inspected it as much as I can without a lift and I don't see anything hanging down or holes. Any ideas? I just lost my job and...
  11. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    New rear brake pads and new rotors. She's sooo quiet now.
  12. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    I cleaned the interior windows since the weather is not allowing me to give her a full wash & wax.
  13. Help me buy rims!

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    ^ Thank you so much! I think I'll go for it then!
  14. Potential New Beetle Owner

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    AGREED! x 100. I just got my beetle a few months ago and I settled. I paid way too much for a car that had flaws (granted minor but still). I'm still in love with it but I wish I had shopped around and not went for the one with low mileage. Now I'm putting money into a car that I couldn't sell...
  15. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    :D What the title says! I ordered a new 8 inch stubby antenna + base for my bug to replace a rusty one. She also got her windows cleaned and trash cleared out.
  16. Don't call it a comeback!!!

    The New Beetle Experience
    Congrats! Do you know why the other owner was selling it so quickly?
  17. FS: 2005 Flint Edition

    Vehicle Classifieds
    (Not for sale by me!) I just saw a 2005 Flint Edition come up for sale today at a local car lot. I figured I'd mention it here as they are pretty rare in case anyone is looking. Asking price was $13,950. I glanced it over and it looked great, but I didn't catch the mileage. I assume it was a...
  18. Should I replace the springs with the struts?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Thanks for all the help! Yeah, I have no idea if the sounds is from the strut but I figured I'd fix the known issues first before chasing a noise. Also I don't think the strut was damaged from impact, I think it was from how the car skidded. I wasn't the owner when all of this happened so I...
  19. Should I replace the springs with the struts?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    During all of my calling around for estimates one guy told me he had never replaced springs on a new beetle because it's never been needed. :confused: He also said there's only rear shocks. Is that part true? Well I have a front creaking noise and I know for a fact that one of my front struts...
