If the 2000 is like my 2003, then no.

Do you have the round expansion tank on the passenger side, it should have a few hoses connected to it and it should be self bleeding if it is like the 2003.

I cannot say for absolutely sure that the 2000 and 2003 are identical as there were quite a few running changes in the many years of the New Beetle.

What issue(s) are you having?

Many people have problems with the passage in the throttle body plugging up.

There is a smaller hose, about 3/8" diameter that runs to the throttle body and if you have this hose, you can take it off and make sure you have decent coolant flow at the throttle body.

Check and see if you have this hose and trace it to the coolant expansion tank.

You should see coolant coming out of this hose with the engine running.

coolant bleed screw

I don't think so, the round coolant reservoir (aka expansion tank) is at the highest point compared to the rest of the coolant system so it bleeds itself out, air bubbles go to the top, of course. Just check the reservoir level and add more as it purps the air bubbles out in two three days of driving.
