  1. SOLD BeetleJuice

    Vehicle Classifieds
    Hi everyone, back state side again and sadly it's time to set the Bug free. Selling my '02 Turbo S BeetleJuice. I would prefer to sell it to a fellow 'orger. I will be in the US for a month or two so i'm in no great hurry to sell it before I head back across the pond. 190,000 + miles, recent...
  2. Sad day

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    Hi everyone, long time since I've been on the forums. I've been across the pond with work a great deal of the time, and as a result of that i'll be moving to the UK permanently soon. Sadly enough it means i'll be parting with my tried and trusted psychotic homicidal gnarly awesome...
  3. Removing AC compressor, need input

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    The valve in the compressor has failed so I am going to rebuild the compressor, install a new valve and change the dryer and add fresh pag oil then recharge the refrigerant. It looks as if it will be relatively straightforward once I get the alt out of the way, but I'd like to find a diy (if...
  4. Removing AC compressor, need input

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Title says it all, i'm refreshing the AC system in Beetlejuice and I am looking for a DIY on removing the AC compressor. Looks like I will definitely be removing the alternator in the process, I am hoping there is a DIY somewhere with pics, a list of tools needed and most importantly a...
  5. Chef-modded headlights 2.0

    Styling Modifications
    I decided to refresh Beetlejuice's headlights and modernize them a bit while I was at it. My original modded headlights looked great but age was getting to the lenses. After a great deal of searching online I got a great deal on two new Turbo S spec headlight assemblies, only paid $250.95 with...

    Since I posted a pic of BeetleJuice, been working too much. Still lovin' my Bug and enjoying every minute behind the wheel.
  7. Ok 1.8t gurus, I need you...

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Thank you for the response. To clarify, I am trying to find a complete radiator hose kit that meets or is better than OEM. The silicone kit I linked to was the only 'kit' I have found so far. If I can find a kit that includes the coolant hose that goes from the after run pump to the turbo then...

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I am replacing the fans, radiator and all related hoses on my 02 Turbo S. I'm finding some conflicting information on the ol' internet. I can see that some of the upper hoses run to T's, but the problem I am having is in buying the hoses themselves. Many of them are cut to fit and many others...

    Technical Modifications
    Hey man, great to hear from you! I've been going non-stop for a while now, had very little time for leisure. I have a few bug-related projects soon, will try to post a DIY on the chef-modded lights soon. So many projects, so little time...

    Chef-modded headlights Hi Chloe - you caught Beetlejuice... :) I did those headlights about two years ago, I shoulda patented the process! The headlights are factory with strip SMD led's installed.
  11. Help a girl out!

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Crankshaft position sensor, locate behind the oil filter. I forget what the VW/Audi name for the part is, but I had the same problem and replaced that last year and it was an instant fix. Hope this helps, Chef
  12. anyone have pics of the "mean looking" eyelids?

    Styling Modifications
    After some trial and error and one really bad internet purchase, I decided to buy a small, cheap sheet of carbon fiber look vinyl wrap and make my own. They have lasted over two years and look fine, haven't faded a bit. I can remove them and then put new ones one pretty much any time, and I can...

    Marketplace Archives
    OK I know this is a long shot (really long) but somehow one of the lock covers on my roof rack came off. Does anyone have one to sell or know where I can buy one? Thanks, Chef
  14. Headlight help needed

    2.5 Liter Gas
    When my '02 started going through headlight bulbs I opened the headlight casing and discovered that the wires had cracked insulation and the bare parts of the wires were touching together and causing the bulbs to blow. A roll of electrical tape fixed the issue. Hope this helps, Chef

  17. Water pump leaks but seems to be in perfect condition?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Title says it all. My NB had a water leak and all indicators pointed to the water pump. I removed it today and I could clearly see where water had been leaking from under the pump onto the engine block. However the pump itself seems to be in perfect condition. The o-ring isn't torn or flattened...
  18. Highway freakin' robbery

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    The water pump in BeetleJuice has a leak and I haven't had any spare time to dedicate to it so I decided I would call around and get some estimates for a WP and TB replacement. The first estimate I got from the local "recommended" vw shop was over $1100 !!!
  19. glad to be a vw owner, help!

    Welcome to the 'org. Arguably the biggest challenge of being a new NB owner is learning all of the various electrical gremlins that can run afoul in your bug. Check the 40 amp fuse in the plastic fusebox that sits on top of the battery. It will look more like a piece of flat metal than a fuse...
  20. Awesome NEWS!!!

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    Great news 007. It is an awesome feeling when you find yourself able to do what you are good at. With your mechanical and fabrication skills you'll no doubt do great. I am being nudged toward a nationwide position with one of the companies I work for. I'm not saying anything to promote myself...
