  1. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    My girlfriend recently hit a deer in her 03 1.8t turbo S demolishing one of the aftermarket headlights. Inside the demolished headlight as well as the intact headlight was a rats nest of butt clips and larger diameter wires than stock that likely are the cause of her ignition switch problem, but...
  2. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hey, everyone! My Bug is a 2000 GLS. I’m having a weird problem with my trunk lock actuator. When starting up first thing in the morning, the trunk will unlock itself, but only then. Once I’ve driven it for a while and stop somewhere, it won’t unlock itself when I restart. Anyone got any...
  3. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hello there, this is my first post on here. Please be patient with me, as my knowledge of cars is limited, but I am learning. I've had my 2007 2.5 engine VW beetle for about 3 years now, but as of late my brights seem to fail. Most posts online seem to be about the dims failing, and I could find...

  5. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi all, I have been trying to align the headlights on my 2003 GLS bug and on both LH and RH headlight units the up/down adjustment screw just seems to spin without changing the vertical plane of the light. Is this a common issue? For other reasons I have to replace both units anyways but am...

  8. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    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...
  9. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    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. Unfortunately they came with a 3-pin plug and during installation I realized the car's plug is actually a 10 pin (9 pins are active...
  10. 2.0 Liter Gas
    Hi there... I've searched in this group but I can't find someone with a similar problem: My low beam headlights (not daylight running lights) won't turn off while driving. As soon I turn the engine on the headlights lit up even in the switch "O" position. They do turn off when I shut down the...
  11. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2006 VW New Beetle. I got my left headlight changed after it went out about a month ago. And then a few days ago the right headlight went out and the high beam signal light on my dash started flashing on and off. Then the left headlight went out too. Anytime I turn the lights on, the...
  12. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I bought my daughter a 2007 Convertible. Eventually the lights started failing. I changed the bulb in the driver side one and worked properly. Due to issues with previous owner I couldn't get the passenger one out unless I broke it so I decided to get a new set for the car. Again, replaced the...
  13. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hello, I would like to ask if someone knows if there is a difference between 1.8T and 2.0 new beetle 2000 headlights? My passenger's side headlight was stolen and somebody will sell me one but mine is 1.8T and his is 2.0, both are year 2000 new beetles. I been looking on internet but can't...

  16. 1.9 Liter TDI
    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...
  17. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    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...
  18. Technical Modifications
    The Drivers side lock/unlock feature does not work. So I can't use my key to unlock or lock my car! Are there any other ways to get the remote to program? Another problem I have is that my headlights wont turn on. Both of them and the fuse is good. The Brights turn on and everything else does...
  19. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I recently (within the past month) replaced both headlights. The driver's side headlight was out completely and I decided to replace both at the same time. Thanks to directions from other users on this site, I was able to do that myself. However, now on the driver's side the light will...
  20. 2.0 Liter Gas
    Hi, started another thread because I am pretty sure my problems are unrelated. A few weeks ago, my daytime running lights stopped working. Seemingly for no reason. Both, at the same time. I am 90% sure it is not the bulbs - any ideas?? In addition, my doors occaisionally do not lock and the...
