SOURCE: rear spoiler does not work.

The rear spoiler is controlled by a Rear Spoiler Control Module. Fuse 35 (30A) and Fuse 5 (7.5A) located in the fuse panel behind left side of dash provide power to the control module. After ensuring that the fuses are good, I would toggle the Rear Spoiler Switch to see if the servo-motor works properly. It is located under the steering wheel underneath the flat part of the dash.

SOURCE: emergency latch for gas cap 2000 VW Beetle, where is it?

From the manual:

  • Open the rear lid.
  • Open the cover on the backside of the luggage compartment. To open the cover, turn the two "quick-releases" and fold the cover down.
  • Reach through the opening by the fuel filler flap. Grab the cable with th plastic covering and pull down. The filler flap will open by itself.
Best of luck!

No, the mirror is just a friction fit. You will need a new mirror.

SOURCE: something draining battery on 2000 VW Beetle Turbo

If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer

There should be a diagram in your Owner's Manual. I have one for my daughter's 1998 Beetle that should be the same as in the 2000 Beetle. Can email it to you if you post an email address that I can send it to.

2002 VW Beetle turbo


Ok we figured something out. The turbo model has a rear retractable spoiler that flips up when you go above 45 mph and down when you go below 10. The later models just have a fixed spoiler. Still looking into if it should make that loud 'ratchety' sound.

Sound from rear


This is more than likely the rear spoiler. When exceeding 45 mph, the spoiler will deploy but is hard to hear due to the sound of the engine, when decelerating back to 10 mph (or less), the spoiler will return to its stored position. This sounds exactly like the experience you described, so I am guessing that this is the culprit.
There are a few ways to confirm:
1: Seated in the driver's seat, reach beneath the dashboard console, searching for a button/switch. This will be located at the bottom of the console (roughly, right above where your left shin/knee would be positioned when driving). If you find a switch, push it and see if it deploys the Spoiler. You will need to have the key and turned so that electricals may function.
2: Look above your rear window. You will likely see a black piece of plastic above it which would be the spoiler. Look at the gap between it and the window.. ...looking about 1 fit in from the side of the Spoiler, you will likely see the metal hinge that the moves the Spoiler up.
3: This is the most fun solution: drive the car over 45 with a friend driving behind you. Just to be safe, take it up to 50 or 60 and have them watch to see if it deploys. You will not be able to see it from within the beetle unless you lower the back seat and have somebody crawl all the way into the back (which would be terribly unsafe and uncomfortable).

Let us know if this is indeed the issue and have fun with your bug!
