  1. CV Axle creating vibration and noise?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    Hey All! I am new to the group but own a 03 2.0L beetle. I replaced the CV axles and suspension about a month ago. Once I replaced them, I noticed my beetle had a vibration accompanied by a loud "hole in the muffler" type sound whenever I hit 3800-3900 RPM in any gear. I re-checked the work...
  2. What is this sound?!

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2000 1.8T with a little over 200,000 miles on it. Lately (the past few weeks) it's been making a really loud whining/squealing noise when I accelerate. It doesn't make the noise when the engine is cold, but it is very loud when the engine is warm or I'm going up a hill. Has anyone heard...

  7. Rattle in map lights

    New Beetle Convertible
    Wanted to share..... I had my 2013 convertible in for the 10,000 mile service and mentioned that there was a rattle in the passenger side overhead map light. Turns out there is a rattle repair kit from VW to quiet that assembly. The dealer had to order the kit. I'll take it back either...

  10. Brake noise after pads and rotor change

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I replaced the front pads and rotors on my 2000 Beetle. Much cheaper than paying the garage to do it. After everything is reassembled on the driver's side, the rotor doesn't seem to sit straight and I can see it deviate from true at the same spot each time it turns. Just a slight wobble, but...
  11. Transmission noise, options?

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hi, my girlfriend has a new Beetle (04 1.8T 6-speed). When you let off the gas in gear, the transmission emits a grinding noise. It doesn't grind going into gear. I suspect it was caused by old not changing fluid frequently enough, so she had it changed and it has continued to get worse. What...

  13. Help! - Noise when accelerating

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have been recently experiencing noise under my hood when accelerating. When pressing down on the gas, the RPM goes up to about 4000-5000 and makes a very loud noise until it reaches the speed. It does not make the noise if I stay at the same speed.. only when I speed up. HELP!
  14. Clutch noise.

    1.8 Liter Turbo
    Ok, so I've read all the threads I can find about clutches and DMF's, but none really describe my symptoms. Car is a 2000 1.8T 5 speed 108k. My daughter said she was trying to merge into traffic and the car did not accelerate well. I think she was in too high a gear and rode the clutch, but...
  15. noise after engine turned off

    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...

  18. Bug making noise like an electric saw

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    It sounds like a medium electric saw noise when you cut wood, only when I am coasting or right after I take off the clutch or the gas pedal. My bug has been in the shop multiple times, it has a new belt and new tune up, brakes are fine and they even tried replacing the spark plugs . The only...

  20. Rattling Sound from Rear Passenger Cabin

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I noticed that there is a strange rattling sound coming from the plastic panel on the right hand side of the rear passenger cabin. It sounds like a small object rolling inside it because it only makes a sound during cornering or when driving on uneven surface. Does somebody have a clue about...
