  1. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hey my beetle is a 2001 1.8t and the airbag light is on but sometimes it will flicker off but come right back, I want to avoid the shop if I can but I want to know how to tackle this
  2. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    We bought a used 2001 beetle glx last month. 68k miles. Looked great. Owned by one person for 19 years. Drove it for a month. It was so fun!!! now the repairs are worth more than the car. We just got new tires. How can I get something for it. It’s not even safe to drive.
  3. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi all, I had a mentally ill friend play with the up/down switch on my passenger window. I pulled the window on out because after his fun the car looked like a shark with a dorsal fin. Try as I might I cannot get the window to go in without feeling like I'm close to shattering it. I've read...
  4. 2.0 Liter Gas
    I offer this little blog of info on the chance it may help others. The problem with modern cars is that they've become overly complicated. Take for instance the morning I prepared Joose for the morning commute. Nothing unusual, warmed him up and parked him on the street in the direction Jeanne...
  5. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2001 and recently the alarm has started going off a few minutes after I lock the door. To temporarily solve the problem, I just didn't lock the doors in my fairly safe neighborhood. However, I'm going back to school soon and I simply cannot do this. Right now, I have just taken the fuse...
  6. 2.0 Liter Gas
    My beetle has been running awesome lately...I should never think that! Park it over night. Come out and crank but no start. Smelled gas all is well there, checked injectors they are ok. Pulled a wire, no spark. Did some research and purchased and changed the crank sensor. Still no spark...
  7. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    So I have a 2001 VW Beetle and the a/c is blowing hot air. The compressor is new, the fans aren't turning on, my dad checked the fuses and they're working. We were just wondering about the switches. How can we check if they're working? Is there anything else we should check?
  8. 2.0 Liter Gas
    I tried searching the forums for this, but I didn't see a thread for it. VW has diagnosed all 4 of my fuel injectors as bad. Since they know I've had some pretty major work done lately, they offered to let me find the parts online or elsewhere and they'd install it, since their parts guy had...

    I'm looking to buy a 1999-2003 Automatic and have heard some mixed opinions on them. Has anyone ever had one? Any suggestions? The majority that I have been looking at have around 115k miles on them. Will they last much longer? I am only going to get one that has been well maintained and I will...
  11. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I'm new here, and I have had some strange issues with my poor little 2001 VW bug. He doesn't have a turbo, was kept in great condition, has under 95K miles on him, and has prompt repair work done. Now, the issue I'm having is that he was throwing a code for the O2 filter or something like that...
  12. Styling Modifications
    Well, my wife and I had to visit a dealership this last weekend to pick up new interior door panels for her 2001 Beetle. While we were there we saw one of the 2012 models with the retro style wheels (black with the chrome center and VW logo). She immediately fell in love with these and wanted...

    Hey Everyone, I just bought this 2001 1.8T GLX. Although it's the first generation 1.8T (as far as I've read) It's fast as hell (me coming from my old Infiniti) One of the plans I have for it is the APR Stage 1 with the APR R1 DV. Does anyone have any experience with those on the 150hp 1.8T...

    Hi, Does anyone know the name of this paint color? It's a 2001 GLS 1.8L manual with leather. Thanks!
  15. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    This morning I had no problem with my windows, I stopped and got coffee and it was fine... This afternoon NONE of my windows will move, including my sun/moon roof. It also appears my alarm system may not be engaging. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks! (I have an 01 beetle, 2.0 engine)
  16. 2.0 Liter Gas
    Spark Plug Gap Help Hi I just got some new spark plugs and was wondering what to set the gap for. I have a 2001 New Beetle, 2.0 liter. Nappa said to set them for .043 My boyfriend accidentally set them to .048 Is that a big enough difference to redo them?
