  1. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hello all, I recently got a 2017 Beetle and noticed that when first getting in the car as well as when turning it off I get a small buzz sound from the steering wheel, almost like the sound of a small drill. Also, the steering light flashes orange for just a moment when first getting in the car...

    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...
  3. 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...

  8. 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. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    My turbo recently failed and my mechanic installed a new turbo. Turbo power has returned.. Car is running great, but when I accelerate and get up to about 2800-3000 rpm, I can hear some sort of air intake noise and the turbo seems to cut out somewhat losing power. When I let off the throttle...

    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...

    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...

    Hi everyone, I'm having an issue with my bug and I can't pinpoint the cause. :confused: Please help... - There is a rattling noise whenever I'm in 2nd or higher gear, with the clutch fully engaged and I'm not pressing on the gas pedal - The noise almost disappears if I depress the clutch or...
  14. 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!
  15. 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...

    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...

    I have had this horn/tea pot type sound coming from my car. I have had no luck finding out which hose was the culprit. Now I know. Attached are two photos that are making the sound. Can someone tell me what part this is and is it easy to replace as far as DIY. Thanks.
  18. 2.0 Liter Gas
    I noticed recently that my 02 beetle makes a noise like "kazoo" when I start her up cold. I bought her used 5 month ago and never noticed that before. The noise lasts for only a second and then goes away. My last oil change was 800 miles ago, and the oil level now is just above the line where I...
  19. 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...
