Please, post more photos of the engine compartment of areas that are undone; routing for hoses, had some variations over the years, also what is your engine code? Maybe, others with the same year/engine; can post some photos and that way, you can compare. When we see, all the disconnected and damage; hopefully, we can help you fix and connect, things correctly. Thanks.

This thread, might be helpful and get you an idea, of typical routing and connections on different 1.8T engine code types:

Did you look at this thread, compare various connections, connected electrical plugs and print out the hose diagrams?



Looking at your battery area; it looks like, your battery tray is missing? A trip to your local pick and pull; might be a great way, to figure things out and find, things that you are missing, at a cheap price.

Ok, post pictures with marked up areas; to show us, specifically, which plugs/wires you need to sort and we can try to help. We, can try to work through each; one by one, to hopefully get you fixed up. Thanks.

I would get everything hooked up and working correctly; the parts are there for a reason, too many people "delete" things and can cause all kinds of problems. Fix things correctly and resist the urge; to hack or bypass the control systems in the vehicle; it is much easier, to repair a car, when everything is intact and hooked up as they should be.


Secondary Air Injection (AIR) Solenoid Valve N112


Turbocharger Recirculating Valve -N249


These two valves; are connected to a metal bracket, that is bolted on top of the valve cover along with the plastic vacuum tank. It looks like you might be missing some parts; to mount it correctly to the top of the engine/valve cover area. The plugs and wires to the n112/n249: seem to come from behind the engine/firewall area; are there any plugs or harness/wiring loom back there?

While, maybe not exactly the same as your harness; here is a basic breakdown, the engine wiring harness, that might be helpful to orient yourself to typical plugs and what they connect to:


Once you find plugs and don't know; where they go post up those pics as well and hopefully, each one can find a home.

ok first let me say thanks. i need to explain that this is the condition i got the car in. The person who had it, it was his wifes. motor went bad. he had it a shop , got another engine put in and half way though the install process someone vandlized it. went in and cut a bunch of wires. the shop started to put it back together again, re-splicing what was cut and the shop closed and no one to work on it. he got tired of it being around and i took on the project. the bracket for the n112/n249 is in the tryunk. i figured that the wires were running back against the filewall near the coils but so far not one connector i can find. the airpump and that elect. connection is missing also. i need get to a junk yard and see how its laid out and get another wiring harness if nessary. seems there are none in these junkyards around here. Also how many years did they make the 1.8 turbo. because there is salcage making on it that say 1800 94. did they make them in 94? i already downloaded and printed off the link on the wiring diagram and most do't match what he has wrote up for on colors. what manual do you recomend? i saw the emanual, it has full service and a workshop manual

Well, if this thing is a franken beetle, hacked, sliced up wiring scenario and a unknown level of interrupted "repairs", a good used harness or even purchasing a same year "parts car", could really help. Many broken down new beetles with bad timing belts, resulting in bent valves or failed transmissions are out there, as pro repair costs, labor rates, new/rebuilt parts can easily outstrip their value.

These can be diy projects and cost less to repair that way; a parts car with many good parts, could help keep costs down or fi d a good local pick/pull with the same car, parts you need. Most junk yards in my area, have a good amount if new beetle's but it doesn't sound like the case for you?

The parts car idea with a complete unmolested car, can really help getting things back as they should be; it can be tough, when parts are damaged, missing hacked and you don't know how things went together, in the first place.

the funny thing is this is the second one i bought. i have another with bad tranny, its a twinkie car except its non-turbo so references are slim. I have been searching in salvage yards and no one has any here. Been looking everyday on craigslist or market place see if i can buy another for parts and so far no go.
