Hello All
I am wondering if someone could help me. My plastic hood opener snapped the other day. I am unable to open my hood. Does anyone know how to do this so I can get in and refill my fluids.
My back hatch is not staying open anymore. Does anyone know how to fix it?
My beetle is a 2000 T l.8
Any ideas or suggestions would be great.

Thank you
Brandydog

When my plastic tongue broke I used a long screw driver to slide under the hood and manipulate the latch. You do need to be careful and gentle or you'll scratch the paint.

Once you have it open, you can fashion a replacement pull with some chicken wire, or buy a new plastic tongue.

The rear hatch, sounds like you need to replace the struts, they don't last for ever. It's an easy 5 minute fix and doesn't require any special tools.
