Just bought a 2000 Beetle GLX 1.8T.
The ABS, EPC, BRAKE are all on when the car starts up, and theres a loud annoying sound when the car is moving. I checked the fuse for ABS and it was not burnt or blown.
Any idea on what to do :(
Also, AC is not working, and when the car starts you can...
I have the dash removed from my 98 to replace the disintegrated foam blend doors. At this time I also cleaned the cabin air filter and cleared all the debris that collected in the air inlet cavity of the dash.
I cleaned quite a bit of dry leaves and insects out of this cavity. I was pretty...
The overhead displays are too dim to read and dash rheo doesn't help. Additionally the mpg gage is entirely inaccurate.
any solutions for these?
BTW I enlightened the speedo/tach (for german thats a large faiure), and gas gage displays with a $10 line of fine led's but still I don't think the...
I am a proud new owner of a 2002 VW Beetle Turbo S. In getting the car all spiffed up, I ran into the sticky dash areas and many internal plastic parts. Is there a remedy to this. The newer models don't seem to have the problem. Has the material been updated.?
My girlfriend has a 1999 beetle, and the lighting behind the speedometer isn't working, but all of the turn signals / warning light are working. I've checked all fuses in the driver side door compartment, and they were all fine. I pulled the gauge cluster out and it seemed to have all led...
anybody have good color ideas for a silver beetle (hardtop) 2001 model. It had black leather seats and black carpets.
I want to spray the mid console and dash etc but don't knkow what colour will match??
When I bought my Beetle the dash was all scratched up. The previous owner apparently left their dog in the car and the dog went to town on it. The steering wheel is chewed, the e-brake handle is gone, the shifter knob was toast and of course the lovely "soft-touch" coating looked like hell...
I am putting this up for those of you who have warning or indicator lights come on, on your dash and don't have an Owners Manual to refer to.
It is a downloadable/printable .pdf scanned from my '05 Owners Manual. Older models have less and possibly different icons, and newer models may have...
This is a brand-new (protective film has never been removed) center dash. Part #: 1CO-858-069-C-62J
How I got it:
I purchased a used 2002 Beetle and a center vent was broke. Rather than really fix it the dealer gave me a brand new center dash part when I came to pick it up. I decided the...
I have been a "fan" of the new Beetle for years and recently bought a new, 2010 Beetle. I have noticed an inconsistancy and am curious is this is normal and/or what is causing it.
At times the gears (1-6) will appear on the dash control panel (next to P-R-N-D-S) as they are...
I posted my question in other thread (http://newbeetle.org/forums/technical-modifications/29223-center-dash-piece-removal.html#post666193) but go no response therefore I post the question under its name.
yellow NB symbol with a arrow swoosh like pointing upwards towards the hood of the car. It's in the lower L corner by the 0 . I can't find this symbol in my manual.

Does anyone know if I can replace the dash on my beetle? It has a lot of scratches in it. I think the plastic just snaps off, but I'm not sure.
Also, if anybody knows some good places to buy replacement parts, please post, I'd really appreciate it.
I just bought my very first car, a 2000 1.8t Beetle, and I LOVE it. But, my radio isn't working and upon trying to fix it, the entire unit it's housed in seems to be unstable.
I've looked online but cannot seem to find a replacement dashboard unit, if that's the correct name for it.
