  1. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I have a 2008 New Beetle S with the factory radio installed, nothing has been changed or touched since I bought the car. Recently the radio started playing only intermittently, and has now stopped playing altogether. It is receiving power and the display shows the FM channel it’s set on, but no...
  2. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Stereo keyholes seem stripped. No matter the size of the key that I have or shape. All I can get the keys to do is click in and click when I push them outward, but if I try to pull on them they just slide right out. It is for a cd stereo and not a cassette otherwise I might have been able to...
  3. Technical Modifications
    Hi, My 2009 Beetle's radio's buttons started breaking about a year ago. Going over bumps would also cause it to start scanning radio stations, so finally purchased an aftermarket receiver from Crutchfield. I didn't have any issues removing the old radio (aside from very short wires that kept me...

    So I have this radio that my cousin gave me. It has this display on it that says "video not available while vehicle is moving" (this message shows even when the car is parked) I was wondering if there was any way to wire it to a sensor to tell it when the car is moving and when it isn't?

    Hello Everyone. I just bought a 2000 GLS New Beetle (or as I know now - NB). So I needed to do a few things, found this forum and It's the best forum I have ever been a part of. The how to section is great. I needed to change the Cabin Filter and the instructions are there. Most of the How...

    So i have a 2003 2.0 GLS that i bought a few months ago (used, obv). The car does not have a Monsoon amp in the back, nor does the stereo have a Monsoon logo. However, i do have tweeters in the A-pillar, and my manual does say that it has the 'premium' sound system. What i've taken away from...

    Hello, There is a thread about a similar topic, but a solid conclusion was never really arrived at, and my question is slightly different. I have a stock 99 beetle stereo in my car, with a 6 CD changer. I have been looking to add a AUX input (I know I will lose the use of my CD changer), but...

    I have a 2004 Convertible Turbo Beetle and I've had it for about 5 years now. Every time I try to listen to the radio/CD/Tape or anything it starts crackling and popping :(. I'm not sure if it is the speakers or the stereo system or what. I've managed to deal with it for a few years now because...

    I tried starting this thread in the how-to section but it told me I didn't have permission :confused: my boyfriend gave me the stereo that came in the vw bus he just bought but it didn't come with instructions. After searching all over the web, I couldn't find a source with clear instructions...

    so I'm trying to install an aftermarket head unit into my 98 beetle. I have the dash kit, harness dapter and antenna adapter, and I get the gist of how to install it, but I just want to make sure I have this down right. I still need more info on the k-wire 1) remove old unit, unplug wires from...

    Everything on the stereo has been fine, but while going over a speed bump my radio stopped putting out any sound. Stereo is powered, and CD changer pumps out the jams, but the radio puts out nothing. I hit the "seek" or "scan" and it just rolls through the wavelengths - never stops, so I...

    New on here and I'll admit that I only joined for this question (but I'm sure that I'm going to need more help later) I have an 03 Coupe (5-speed 2.0) that I bought with no stereo installed... I'm going nuts not having a radio (I have speakers hooked up to my iPod) so I want to put something...
