    Hi all, I hope you are doing well wherever you are I am continuing on the journey to fix the transmission of my 98 beetle. (180k miles. Yikes, I know.) A few months ago I replaced the valve body and changed the fluid hoping that would help with the warm-weather shifting issues. We did not have...
  2. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    I find conflicting info. What kind of transmission fluid should you use when changing the fluid in a 2000 1.8t glx with a 5 speed manual transmission. Car sat a year and I'm freshening him up with all new fluids but can't find a straight answer on what kind of transmission fluid I need.

    Is there a way to determine if a NB has the DSG transmission by using the VIN or something else that is definitive? I'm looking for a used NB between 2006-2011 for my daughter. I'm really wanting to get a model with the DSG transmission. I have read that the shifter has DSG on it if it has...

    I have a 2002 Beetle with an automatic 4 speed transmission with 107,000 miles, and almost every time when I shift from 2nd to 3rd gear, the car will lurch forward and the rpms will shoot up. There are no transmission codes. Could this be fixed by changing the fluid, or is this a sign that my...

    My 1998 New Beetle 2.0 Automatic has had a slight shudder to it at idle for a while, it never was a serious issue and only occurred at low speeds or idle. I recently had my transmission fluid flushed before a long road trip to see family, since that long drive the idle shudder has become more...

    So long story short our New beetle sat for months and the battery completely drained and has lost communication with the TCM. You get no gears or numbers under the mileage on the tach and it's obviously in some sort of limp mode. So we tried to go about messing with the TCM via VCDS software...

    Just replaced the valve body on my 2006 New Beetle w a rebuilt unit. The job is done except for refilling the transmission. As I was emptying the old transmission fluid I discovered a 1" pin (pictured below) in the oil, cringe! I am now contemplating tearing open the transmission to try and...

  9. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hello everyone, I’m new in this community, even though I always read the posts and find accurate solutions. However, I’m going crazy right now, here’s the thing: I removed the center console on my wife’s 2008 Automatic (TipTronic) New Beetle to change the 12v outputs, and because the magnet on...
  10. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I recently purchased a 2000 Beetle (2.0l auto) and from what I can tell it never shifts up to 4th gear. When in Drive, it does 80kph at 3000 rpm, 100kph at 4000rpm (or a smidgen under 4000), and 110 at about 4200 rpm. Do those rev counts that sound too high to you? When cruising at 100kph, if...

    I just converted my daughter's 2003 NBC from automatic to manual and I have the 09G sitting in the garage taking up space. This vehicle has been in my family since new and the transmission has only 55K miles on it - HOWEVER - I'd recommend installing a rebuilt valve body. The transmission was...

    Hi There, I have a 2014 Turbo Beetle with 30,000 miles. I am the 2nd owner, just bought it used in December. I find that when I shift it into reverse it seems to lunge into gear. Is this an issue I should address to the dealership re: transmission? It also does this when going...

    Hello. about a month ago I started having harsh downshifts. From what I've been able to find it appears to be shift solenoid problems. I can find replacement solenoids but I don't know if thy are for my transmission. I have a 2006 beetle convertible 6 speed automatic 2.5l gas. I'm hoping someone...

    I have just dropped a new engine in 2001 1.8T automatic. The problem is I got confused on where the speed sensor connector goes, option A: is a a wire coming out of the spark plug wires harness, or B which is a connector fixed on the top of the transmission towards the back. Needless to say it...
