  1. Fan mysteriously hitting coolant tube? Help!

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    So the fans have apparently been eating away at the coolant hose located at the front top of the car that connects the upper radiator hose to the water pump. I've known this for awhile you can feel it, it started to slowly leak so I replaced the hose. It's bracketed in at the middle of the hose...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2000 beetle. About a year ago my center knob to control the speed of the blower felt stiff then upon turning it again it got stuck at speed 1, but would still turn to the other settings.

  4. Need Heater Fan Relay Help

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi! I have a 2000 New Beetle and my fan does not blow on any speed. I have heard from the shop that it is a relay that goes out frequently, and is a simple fix. However, the shop wants a lot more money to fix it than I have. I think I can replace the relay myself if someone can just tell me...

    When I am driving down the highway it sounds find, but when I step on it to pass, the engine sounds like a fan kicks in and really starts sucking air. Or maybe it's blowing air. It's hard to tell. Any ideas?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I was driving my 1999 NB GLS a few times today. The first two times I drove it today, it was fine and nothing out of the ordinary. Then when I got home, I turned off the car and there was still a 'running' noise coming from the engine. My husband asked if the car was turned off and it was...

    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...

    Hello all, I have owned my 2000 GLX Turbo for 2 weeks, so I am not accustomed to its Beetleisms. Today, after driving it a couple times, I shut off the engine, and a fan was still running under the hood for a minute or more. It was a HOT day today. Is this normal cooling procedure? It...

    A couple of days ago I noticed that when the AC is on #1-3 I can feel cold air, but blowing really low. I switch it to #4 and the AC button no longer lights up and I don't get any cool air, just air flow. Both fans run on #1-3 but stop when I switch to #4. Any suggestions? 7/25/10 Tore...

  12. 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...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
