  1. The New Beetle Experience
    Hello All First let's start with this - I'm a moron who swiped the side of her own garage and in doing so managed to pop the front side light into the car (2013 Beetle Convertible). So...here's my question. Anyone know how to get the housing of the side light to pop back in so that I can pop...
  2. New Beetle Convertible
    3 weeks ago, when I got my car back from the shop for work wholly unrelated to the top (rims and axle) the top would not go down, no matter how many times I restarted the car and tried the "reset" involving turning off the engine while still holding down the window button. The next morning, it...
  3. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi friends. Got my 2000 bug back from the mechanic today after sending her in for a washer bottle and window reg replacement. Upon getting it back, I noticed I had no window power and no central locking. The mechanic told me I have a “dodgy fuse” (the one I’m pointing at) and it needs to be...
  4. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    SEE VIDEO: I have taken my beetle to several mechanics and none of them have been able to diagnose this. I'm assuming it's because they don't know enough about this engine, so I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me out. I was recommended to replace the diverter valve (which I did) but it...
  5. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Got into a car wreck and I have to buy a whole new arts and pay for labor. The mechanic shop has quoted me an arm and a leg so I’m looking to get the parts myself (radiator, radiator support, and most like a hose and or fluid) and maybe try to replace myself, if not have the shop do it with the...
  6. 2.0 Liter Gas
    Hello Everyone, I've been working on a 1999 VW Beetle 2.0l for the last 2 weeks replacing a lot of parts that another shop broke and damage. However, the fans wont turn on. Even with the AC on. I replaced the fans, all the sensors, module, and even the fuse on top of the battery. I checked...
  7. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I recently got my first car and it’s a beetle. The airbag light (orange) has been on for a while and now the check engine light (orange) has come on with some sort of lighting bolt going through it. The engine light did go on ond off when it felt like it but for the last two weeks it’s stayed...
  8. Paint and Body
    I was in a minor collision that took out the driver side front. Most of the damage is cosmetic, so I am doing the repair. Any suggestions for a good site to find parts diagrams? eBay is the only place I could easily find parts. ECS tuning has parts but is expensive. Without a parts diagram I...

  10. 2.0 Liter Gas
    Hello everyone. This is my very first post. I am a little lost. A few weeks ago I purchased my first car, a 1998 Manual non TDI 2.0 L new beetle. It is in great shape body wise and has only 85k miles. I love it a lot and have gone through replacing a lot of things. I bought all new brakes...

  12. 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...

    So I have a 2003 Beetle with a 1.9L diesel. Drove it to work fine (40 miles). There were no signs of trouble. Went to start it at the end of the day and it won't turn over. Dash lights up when I turn the key to the on position and the coil indicator light functions normally. When I turn to...

    Howdy folks! I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I am new to this forum, but not VW's, although this will be my first watercooled. Last spring I sold my 65' Beetle, much to my son's dismay. Since he will be soon driving, I have been on the lookout for a "newish-oldish" Bug as he has...

Winter has just started to leave the good state of Georgia and I wanted to put my top back to have the wind blow through my natural curls, lol. No bueno. I pressed the button and nothing happened. No sounds from the top, no sound from the...

    We just bought our daughter an 07' 2.5L Beetle. Learned on the way home that it has a bad Alternator. Of course the fella selling it said it was fine. Replacing it will by my first task. She really loves it. I have found a lot of great info on the forum already. Thank you to all the...
