SOURCE: 2000 VW Beetle 1.8 turbo

Thermstat is located at the front of the motor to the left(passenager side of motor) under the intake by the serpent belt area you'll see the goose neck bolted to the block. Part cost $20. If a car service does it about $150 or more. And if you need a wtaer pump it's located behind the timing belt cover.( VW won't recall none of these cars for cooling problems, electrical problems and so on. 1.8 turbo is the worst of all the VW's hope the head on your motor doesn't melt.) Get it fixed and trade it in. Buy American.

SOURCE: How do I change a headlight lamp in a 2003 VW New Beetle Turbo?

The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.

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

2003 Beetle turbo-13 trouble codes-PO300-multiple cyl misfire-PO171-system lean, bank one, PO301, PO303, PO302,PO 304-cyl one thru four misfire, P0012-intake cam position timing over-retarded-bank one,...

Low fuel pressure will cause many of those codes to set.

Should have around 3.5bar pressure at idle and full throttle.

Check to see if VW has a recall on the ignition coils. They are cheap to replace will need your VIN# when you call.

Alternator problems can also trip codes . Check for a/c ripple at BATT + on more the 0.05vac allowed.

Valve train noise common complaint. ...often due to lack of oil services and/or incorrect oil type.

All 1.8T engine will clatter on start up one time or another and is considered normal as long as it goes quiet after 2 to 5 seconds at idle.

You should have synthetic oil in the engine.

P0012 is often timing incorrect. ...check timing belt at tdc.

These engines need a timing belt every 50,000 miles not the 100,000 miles VW suggests. Belt failure is catastrophic.

Transmission codes often corrosion in loom connections under battery. These need checked and cleaned with a solution of STABILANT22A applied to the pins.

If a scanner is available clear the codes and drive for 40 miles or so and recheck for codes. Transmission codes are not always due to transmission faults. They need 200 miles to re adapt after batter replacement or power off.

ROSS TECH site has lots of info' and a scanner program for your lap top.

Had broken oil dip stick tube and a code PO171. VW 2001 turbo.

The po171 code means the system is running too lean.
Try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow) and see if that works.
It can be cleaned with intake cleaner or brake parts cleaner that"s in a spray can.
The maf sensor is located between the air filter and the throttle body in a big black hose and has a wire connection to it. Be very careful when you clean it.
