    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Ok so working on my daughter 2000 NB with NO BLOWER CONTROL OR AC LIGHT. I followed some many of y'all great advise and pulled apart the blower switch in center console. It was broken as so many have described with the metal tang off. I repaired that. Tested for voltage on the C shaped metal...
  2. Location of knock sensor 1 and blower/electrical problem

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi, I'm new to the group. My partner and I came into a 1.8L turbo manual 2002 beetle for free! It needs a bit of work but two things first. 1) I'm looking for knock sensor 1, I had the check engine light come on and it was that code. Is it this nut with a little yellow paint on the front...

  4. Did I break my heater switch?

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Was asked to change a burn out heater switch light bulb on my mother's '04 NB Cabrio. Now I've owned 2x MK4's already (Golf/Jetta) and both have had the mini bulb behind the similar looking heater switch burn out. The procedure was put it in the off position and pull out and work from there...
  5. foot-well air-vent blow pressure?

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I might not actually have anything wrong here, but i wanted to be sure: On my 2003 2.0 hatch-back, when i have the air dialled to the dash vents only, the pressure/flow is fine. However, when i dial it to top+bottom or bottom-only, the flow is very poor. It definitely still comes out, and it...

  7. Fuse Problems??

    2.5 Liter Gas
    My wife have a 2.5 litter 2007 VW new beetle. The cigarette lighters stopped working so my wife went out to play with the fuses... Long story short the car will not start now. I believe the fuses are all in correctly (from spending 4 hours going through each one with the book) but the car...

  9. 2000 beetle vents not blowing air

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    My 2000 Beetle A/C was recently repaired. I just had the under dash Fan Blower replaced and noticed the fan blows on all the speeds (high, med, low). Unfortunatly, it's not blowing out the vents. I can hear the fan funning from low to high when I turn the dash a/c fan switch, but it barely comes...
  10. Climate Control Fan - Only 2 and 3 Works

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I have just repaired by beetle due to a timing belt issue. A turbo engine is very expensive to fix if the belt breaks so recommend everyone get a new timing belt replaced every 80,000 miles. My little bug only had 83,313 miles when it broke. Prior to getting it repaired, number 4 of my blower...
