2003 1.8L Turbo Beetle. Can't find the block heater plug

We were told that it may be under the car but I can't see it. Does anyone know specifically where this might be?

Thanks,

Steve

    there isn't a block heater unless it was installed aftermarket, the beetle (i think all VW's) doesn't have a block heater

Hey steve. Your block heater cord should be in the very front, somewhere in the area behind your bumper/grille area. Also check under the hood on both sides, it will be the only 3 wire grounded cord in there. It may be coiled up also, so look for a coiled up unpluged cord too.
Good luck
Jay

View the attached website to see if your problem is in the fuse block that is under the hood immediately on top of the car's battery.

Also, the car's blower motor/climate control is controlled by the 25 amp fuse No. 25 in the fuse block located at the end of your dashboard.

Bad missing in motor on 2001vw beetle


If it is a 1.8 turbo the plugs are under the coil packs on top of the engine. A regular spark plug wrench will fit them. They are down in the block about six inches. They are easy to change. I changed them in about 30 min. The coil packs are held on by 2 torx screws.
