  1. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle

    I recently changed my timing belt on a 2000 AEG New Beetle that desperately needed a timing service. I bought my parts online from ECS Tuning's timing belt kit, and the installation went smoothly. However, a couple days after the install, my engine suddenly developed a slight squeak / chirping...

    Hi everyone! I just bought a 2002 NB 2.0 GL, yellow, about a week and a half ago. Was very excited to be back in the VW club after last owning a 2008 Rabbit in 2016! However, I think I was lied to about its condition and history 😞 So now I’m experiencing some issues... Occasionally, I’ll try...

    Hello all, I am looking for some expertise on racing mods for a 1999 Beetle 2.0. The rule book is very open in my class, whereas the only engine mod that I am not allowed is a turbo. I've been looking at some racing cams from Tectonics, and I've just run out of knowledge. I know enough to get...

  10. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Recently changed my timing belt but ran into a hiccup. I couldn’t torque down my tensioner pulley. It just reaches a point where i could turn the nut either way and it didn’t get tighter or looser. I presume something is threaded. I have a few questions around this. So far my timing belt hasn’t...

    I'm about to replace an oil pan because of stripped bolt thread. I heard around about newer hybrid oil pan. However ECS lists those as for BEV engines only. A dealer just quoted me ~$300 for non-hybrid oil pan, sensor hole cover, bolts, seal, and a gasket maker. I was told there is no VW hybrid...

    my 2001 AVH keeps raising the P0171, system too lean, code. A few months ago, I cleaned the MAF. I only drove about 150 m miles until I took it on a 1800 miles trip. On this trip, the CEL came on three times, with the P0171 code. The first two times, I cleared it at the end of the day. The last...
