    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.

    I had one of the fuel injectors replaced on my 2013 2.0T Beetle. I was looking under the hood after the work was done and found that the top part of what I assume is related to the air intake was just resting on its base. Should the fit be so loose? The retaining clips seem extremely...
