    Hi all, Just got my driving test and am trying to get my beetle on the road, I've ordered parts for it but the only piece missing now is the rear badge. The black background is still there which seems to have holes around the outer circle as if the metal badge that fits in would have legs if...

    Hello, I’ve had two new Beetles. I need to buy another one. I’ve always had a Manual gearbox but now I see one with an automatic Gearbox and I’m wondering if there are any problems with automatic gearboxes? How long are they designed to go on for before they break. The car I’m going to buy has...

    Thanks for the add to the group. Just got this 71 Beetle, really lucky as the back seat was full of a lot of new parts. Have already started replacing many items to include a new key ignition lock and wiring harness, a new signal switch, stock muffler, and all upper engine gaskets. Am sure...

    I have a 2007 New Beetle Convertible. I removed the center console and now I am reinstalling it. When I removed it the wiring came unplugged from the back of the convertible top switch. VW didn't leave any slack in the wire so it doesn't reach the back of the switch until the console is nearly...

    I ordered a PCV valve, supposedly for the 2.0L engine (for a 2004 New Beetle). It looks like a 3" diameter black plastic disc, about 1/2" thick, with two hose ports sticking out of it. I've scoured the engine and the web looking for any indication of where this thing lives but can't figure it...

    We recently had an early cold snap with a very wet snow and the car was parked outside. The next day, when my wife went out to go to work, the windows would not automatically lower to get into the car. Finally, she was able to get in, but then the window stayed down the 1/4" instead of going...

    Hi everyone :). New to this forum and was looking for any advice you can offer. My daughter is turning 16 shortly and will be getting her permit soon. We are looking to purchase a 1998 to 2011 Beetle, and were looking for the usual forum recommendations/advice on what models/years are...

    I have an 02 beetle that is losing coolant. No drops on the ground, can't find any wet spot and not overheating. I did try to do a pressure test and found that as soon as I build any pressure at all it leaks out the bypass on the overflow ball. I can't get it to 2 pounds before it leaks down...

    Has anyone else experienced the inablility to unlock your '14 Beetle if more than 10 feet away?!? In the first year, under warranty, I pointed this out to Flow VW. They said the key fob was working just fine. It doesn't work just fine! Lent car to my daughter who asked why she couldn't unlock...

    Hi! Completely new to this but a friend suggested this would be the place to ask for advice! I have a 2014 Beetle, 2.0s 6speed DSG (75000 miles) which I absolutely LOVE!!!! I've owned it for 18 months! A few days ago a spanner symbol appeared where the gear numbers are and the gears wouldn't...

    Hi all, ever since we bought our beetle back in 2015 we have never had good DAB reception (UK DIGITAL RADIO). We are both avid DAB listeners and really miss this feature from our old car. I am aware the antennas are the lines on the front windscreen (which i think is super silly), is there...
