Unfortunately no progress to speak of ... :(

... the upstairs shower manifold started leaking and the plumber that put it in originally, soldered it in, :banghead: so I had to cut the fiberglass insert (all in one tub/shower unit) out to repair it. Which meant a bathroom remodel; so that is where I have been putting my repairs skills to use.

I am almost finished, just have to buy a hole saw kit to put a hole in the wall for the new manifold lever and then all I have to do is finish the drywall and paint.

Well, on one hand it is nice to have "free" car parts at your disposal when your spouses car needs one or two; however on the other hand it makes your project car budget seem to spiral out of control, not to mention make more work for yourself :banghead: ...

I have an old Fram Filter commercial stuck in my head ... "You can pay me now or pay me later."

No real progress, :( I have re-cleaned mounting surfaces and wire harness connections. Also I am waiting for a vacuum tube, secondary water pump and connecting hoses to come in. I also decided to replace all of the rubber hoses. Waiting on quote from German Auto Parts; I send them pictures with arrows pointing at the parts I need.

Aside from household projects, most of my time has been spent trying to find out why my '98 has been losing oil and coolant slowly. No ground spots, so it is draining and/or burning off when I drive; this morning I could smell it; subtle but it was there. Seeing how the '98 is my daily drive, I am going to risk driving it while I put my focus into the '00. The wife and I will be having a conversation that all other projects are on hold, including the household ones; which have been the bane :banghead: of my auto repair existence, so I can finish this project.

Ugh! Stealing from Pete to give to Paul; it must be frustrating, in the long run! Then, you have to replace, purchase everything after you cannibalize your project car! Where did all the parts go? Who stole them? Stop Thief! :stickpok: :rant2:

Hello D2beetle,first let me say this is a great thread very informative,with great pics! I recently blew my belt or tensioner on my 2000 1.8 beetle,im in the middle of taking the head off to check for damage,i have been following your steps which are great,im just about ready to remove the head,as I got everything disconnected except the belt,which I'm starting on tomorrow.The belt is still snug,does not look broke,wont know till I remove the mounts and lower cover,but the cam jumped to about the 3 oclock position.I have a question for you,can I remove the head without setting to TDC and then remove the belt? Then turn the crank to TDC and replace the head and belt.Any help would be appreciated.

Since you are removing the cylinder head, there is no need to set TDC, as you can do that before you put the rebuilt head back on. Be sure the machine shop that you take it to, sets the cams to TDC on the cylinder head. That way all you have to do is bolt it on. But, be sure and double check their work anyway.

Update ...

Now that I am down to one Beetle, I am making headway. All of the 2.0L spare parts are gone and I have been going through what parts I have that can be put back on and I checked those against the ones on order; I am still missing a couple of hoses and a temp sensor.

So part clean up has begun ...

The cylinder head on my 2000 beetle 1.8,after blowing timing belt.You can see the valve strikes on the pistons,and the bent valves.I would like to thank d2beetle for the great step by step thread that helped me get the head off.I just got the head back from the machine shop who did a complete valve job,and I installed it back in today.I replaced the timing belt,water pump,tensioner,thermostat,coolant pipe,alternator tensioner.Im in the process of putting the alternator back in,as I moved it down to replace the thermostat,once that's done I will be firing her up.A quick note for anybody else doing this,i unbolted the intake and just pushed it back a little to get head off,also left the turbo intake tube connected,no need to remove and also left the air pump in place,did not remove.
