Nice clean Bug and welcome to the org. Hopefully we can see more or Jenny in future posts.
Thanks for the link and for reading my thread! The fan problem makes a lot more sense now--and the low speed is definitely burned out (thus sayeth the mechanic). I had noticed that the fans were only running on high speed, so now I'll certainly know what to look for in the future. I'd like to get proficient enough with my New Beetle to be able to fix things myself, but I'm learning as I go (just like I did on the '73 Super Beetle!). I think my biggest challenge right now is not having a VAG COM or whatever the code reader is called--thank goodness for the Bentley manual!A common problem with the cooling fans; is the low speed will burn out and this requires fan assembly replacement. Here is a great thread; to understand how the attempt works and how to test things:
I drove air cooled beetles as a daily driver for over 10 years. I also had a 73' super beetle; it is a real struggle to keep them repaired and on the road. I will say, my 73' super was more reliable than my 64' however; the super beetles have a improved handling macphearson strut suspension, IRS, more comfortable, bigger interior, fans to circulate the heater, but they lack the charm, classic looks of the earlier Beetles. It can be a continual repair/maintenance battle; to keep a old air cooled bug on the road (ask me how I know)!
