SEE VIDEO:


I have taken my beetle to several mechanics and none of them have been able to diagnose this. I'm assuming it's because they don't know enough about this engine, so I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me out. I was recommended to replace the diverter valve (which I did) but it didn't solve the problem. I'm starting to be very annoyed by this issue which causes me to lose power while accelerating. If you have any ideas, I'm all ears!

Did your check engine light ever come on? Might be a vacuum leak, or something clogged in the air box? Possibly a slave cylinder hydraulic issue coming from the clutch since the sound seems like it is coming from the footwell?
