  3. New Beetle Convertible
    Could someone please tell me what size battery I need for my 06 Beetle convertible? It’s a 2.5L gas engine. My booklet says the size is on the battery…duh. Unfortunately my car is not with me at the moment so I can’t go look at it and I need to pick one up. Previous searches said an H5, H6 and...
  4. New Beetle Convertible
    The rear window in my 2014 Beetle convertible blew out when I put the top down the other day. Shattered glass everywhere. Was a coolish day (high 50's in the Northeast) and no visible signs of any cracks, etc. Insurance co. is telling me the entire roof needs to be replaced ... and both shops...

    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...

    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...

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 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...
  19. 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...
