    Hi, just bought my first car, but the drivers side controls for the mirrors, electric windows, and door lock doesn't work. Unlocking the car with the fob does the passenger side only, and trying to open the windows with the key in the door does not work. The boot (trunk) release and the fuel...
  4. Some info on possible cause of roof not working

    New Beetle Convertible
    I'll keep it brief. the main point is that the microswitches controlling the top locking motors are mounted using a screw through an oval slot. They can work loose over time so that the end of the moving arm on the motor fails to operate the switch. The switch itself is OK it's just not getting...
  5. rear hatch/trunk lock

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I bought a 1999 beetle and the trunk does not open. I do not have a remote key, only a key to manually unlock, and it does not unlock the rear hatch. The automatic locks inside do not work either (the inside panels were ripped out and horribly replaced, only power windows work). Can someone...

  7. Door Lock Broken - Looking for Options

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hey, My driver side door lock broke the other day as I was trying to manually unlock it (the fobs died ages ago).

    The New Beetle Experience
    I've had my 2000 manual transmission Beetle for six years, and there are certain quirks that I just learned to deal with. Now I'm curious whether these are normal behaviors, and who better to ask than the New Beetle Forums! If I try to start the car with either of the doors locked, the alarm...

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Alright, just to state: 2000 2.0 gas engine... no modifications (apart from a morningstar in the vase instead of a flower) This isn't a HUGE deal, but more of a daily annoyance. Sometimes, my crank window on the driver's side is hard to roll up. I mean I have to grab it with both hands to get...

    Hi, Don't know if anyone else has had this problem, and I am hoping it is only a fuse issue. Lately, the alarm goes off either when I unlock the car or when I start it. I also noted that it does not always beep when I lock the car, sometimes it does not seem to be registering that the car is...
