    I recently got a new battery for my 2012 Beetle (56,290 miles) as the old one no longer held a charge. I had thought the problem was a parasitic drain on the system so went through all the fuses, disconnecting one-by-one to see which might be the source of the drain - no luck; the drain seemed...

    New Beetle Parts and Accessories
    I am searching for a camshaft cap (4 bolt) on the intake side. I was torquing it when it just snapped. Can’t believe it broke before getting 7 lbs. on it. If someone has a blown 1.8t engine ans can spare it, please let me know. My car is a 2000 beetle gls with 1.8t engine. Thanks

    I am wanting to get a spare key for my beetle because I have a problem with locking my keys in the car lol. But I was wondering if a 2000 beetle requires a chip in the key to simply just unlock it. Because if not, I would just get a key made but if it needs a chip in it, it would be more...

I absolutely adore it but it’s not practical for me to have anymore and I’m looking for someone to love it. It’s a petrol with an automatic roof and windows, although the motor needs...

    Hey! I'm new to this subject. I ride a motorcycle so I don't know much about cars. The 1958 vw beetle engine keeps getting broken down and need frequent repairs. It also consumes a lot of fuel. About 8-10 km per L. What type of engine can I use to replace it with? Without cutting the frame and...

    Hello y'all, this is a thread only to inform all of you that yes a cluster swap is possible, pretty much anything you can think of with some re-wiring and doing custom shells/frames and you're good to go. First lets talk about the Cluster swap, yes it's possible but you need money to invest on...

    Hello, My wife just bought a 2013 Beetle and it had just one key (not original). For some reason, it is a bit tough to turn off the car sometimes and get the key out of the ignition. I hear this is a common problem with VW vehicles. I am taking it to the VW dealer for the passenger bag recall...

    had my tty bolts fail less than 1,500 miles. The transmission was rebuilt and the timing was serviced and new tty bolts were used but the mount was not replaced and the rubber inside the transmission mount cracked and allowed far too much movement causing one bolt to snap and the other to strip...

    Hello all. My wife and I have two VW's sitting in our driveway, a 2018 Beetle convertible and a 2019 Tiguan. I just finished taking the snow tires off the Tiguan and did the TPMS reset via the infocenter ... no issues. I took the snows off the Beetle and went to do the TPMS reset and I can't...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...

    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...
