  1. Battery Fuse Box question

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hello, Recently my cooling fans and AC went out (sporadic ac clutch engagement) so I went to the obvious, the fuse box on the top of the battery. It looks fine and shows no signs of melting anywhere. However, I tested the resistance anyway in case there was internal melting that I could not...
  2. A/c and fan issues

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    This subject appears to be a common issue, but i'm not getting anywhere with my efforts. I have a 2002 Beetle 1.8 turbo. Before blowing a coolant hose and warping the head, I was trying to track down why the coolant fans and ac compressor aren't coming on. I repaired the other issues and am...

  7. Fan causes car to shake?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I have noticed that when the fans come on due to heat or when I turn on the A/C the car shakes noticeably and I can also hear them running pretty hard. I can also smell a bit of Anti Freeze after parking the car after I have driven the car around town. I have never had a car do this so I...
