I was doing some Preventive Maitnenance on my Battery the other day and LOOKSIE what I found when I removed the battery Tray holder...SUPRISE SUPRISE (CORROSION CITY). This was a DISASTER Waiting to happen. No wonder people are having Electrical issues with their beetles. What MORON engineer at VW would put a Negative grounding wire strap right beneath the Battery? Glad I found it and fix the problem before it became a real problem. If any of you out there are having electrical issues with your battery or alternator I suggest you check under the battery chassis grounding wire strap. Good luck guys and Merry christmas. Here is my before and after pictures.
