Hey, I have a 1999 Sports Beetle. I am not sure if I chose the right product. Ever since I first bought it, the radio never worked. The car was made so that the CD's are put in a disk player in the trunk, in order to be listened to. I am hoping to find a reliable automotive place that could be able to repair it quickly and affordably.

Re: 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
The Beetles are basically good vehicles. What engine do you have? If you take good care of it you should get lots of fun driving from it. Where are you located?? I might be able to recommend a shop if I knew where you were.

You will need to slide the center hump on dash directly above radio and vents backwards towards the widshield. You will notice a crease where the actual part containing vents meets the center hump that is just one piece itself. It should open up giving you access to the right side (passenger side) dash panel that has 5 or 6 screws (they are hex) that need to be removed. You will find the Cabin air filter under this panel after removing screws. it pulls out easily and the new one just sits back in place. Replace the screws and then align and slide the center hump back towards the back of car to lock into place. Relatively easy thing to do..
You can go to the dealer and they can help you with the radio code and get the radio working again, but if they want crazy money for the code. Log on to radio-code.com. They can get you the radio code for a small fee and you get to keep the code for future radio lockouts. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your radio is working again.
If you can re-move the radio, they have a bar code on them. Or even faster call a VW dealer auto part's and give them your vin number, some times they help you out by giving you a universal code. If that don't work you can change it out and get a after market radio installed. Way cheaper than having your factory one get service by a dealer ship.
