    Hi, My daughter has just presented me with her privately purchased beetle 2.0, 2001 manual. It seems good apart from a headlight problem. When the headlights are on it won't switch to main beam and the headlamp flasher won't work. On sidelights or lights switched off the headlamp flasher...

    I recently purchased a 2005 and it needs some work. So started with some replacement headlights and a few websites indicated the headlights I purchased would work.

    I have a 1999 diesel beetle, and my passenger headlights are out, both high and low beams. I checked the bulbs and they are obviously no good, but I also checked to see if there was any electricity making it to the bulbs, but I didn't get any reading. I was told it could be a problem at the...

    Hello all, both my low beams are out. It's neither the fuses or the bulbs. I've seen this on the forum before but haven't seen a solution. I'd love to fix it myself as we just spent a lot of money of new tie-rods for the car. It's a 2000 Beetle and has always had some electrical issues...
