    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hey gang, I haven't written in a while. I bought my daughter a 2000 gls at a really low price, knowing I would have to fix it up. I didn't know I'd have to replace EVERYTHING! Anyway, in this thread, I need to ask for your help. I'm about out of money and the AC still doesn't work. The mechanic...
  3. Ac / air compressor issue

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2003 Beetle 2.0L - My air blows hot and regular, but has stopped blowing out cold cold air even when I have the AC button pushed in.

  4. Troubleshooting AC Compressor - 1999

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Looking for some advice. I just replaced the Compressor, Dryer and expansion valve. I used a rebuilt compressor. I put everything together (4.5 oz of PAG oil in compressor) and then drew a vacuum on the system for 30 minutes. I let it sit for about an hour to make sure that there were no...
  5. No Air coming from A/C

    2.0 Liter Gas
    My girlfriend's 2000 Beetle is not blowing any air from the A/C. I checked all fuses on side of the dash, but none were blown. I checked the three green fuses on the fuse box on the batter, and none of those were blown either. It has always acted a little funny but it always worked. Does...

  8. A/C troubleshoot?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I have a 2000 2.0 (engine code AEG) with 160k. Bought it last year and the passenger side cooling fan was broken. The AC would only kick in when driving above 30mph or so, or when the engine was revved above 3000rpm. I assumed it was because of the broken cooling fan. I didn't get around to...
  9. A/C only works at IDLE...Compressor? Expansion valve?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hi everyone... About a month ago my A/C started to not feel "as cold" as usual on my way home from work in New Orleans. The next day, it seemed to only be slightly cooling, but when I would stop at stop lights it would get colder. I figured it was low on freon, even though the compressor was...
  10. Still having A/C problems

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Ok, I have spent hours reading through a lot of a/c issue posts. I have even posted on this in the past. Still, it seems that while some issues are similar, none of the suggested remedies are resolving my situation. Main issue: 2000 1.8L a/c clutch will not engage. No power going to...
