Okay, just purchased a 2000 for my daughter's first car (she has been begging for a green beetle forever).

Decided to replace the head unit and door speakers as the drivers door was not working. Had to wait for the install kit for the head unit but replaced both door speakers.....still no drivers door sound. Hoped it was something disconnected in the head unit, but after replacing that I still have no sound in door. Front pillar speaker works fine and the entire system sounds good, but would still like to fix that door speaker.

Thanks,

Glenn

There have been reports about the wiring in the door jam fatiguing and breaking inside the insulation due to the door opening and closing often. This is not just VW, but other German auto manufacturers have similiar problems.

These are hard to locate as the wire is broken inside the insulation and it is not visible to the eye, you have to check continuity on it.
