  10. 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?

    Hi, I'm retired and love working on cars even when I get into trouble. No car seems to give me more stress than this little Beetle. It's virtually impossible to learn how to fix it without any aids (books, online forums etc.). I'm use to old 60's Pontiacs. Here is what I am currently working...
