Question about Volkswagen Beetle
I drive a 1999 new Beetle, manual transmission, with approx. 81,000 miles. The sound only started today. It happens when I depress the clutch or when I'm in gear, but not giving it gas. The check engine light also popped on about 15 miles after I noticed the new sounds. Otherwise, the car drives and shifts well.

SOURCE: grinding noise while driving.
a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline
b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk
c) dried out wheel bearings
d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts
e) worn A/C pump
f) worn alternator
g) worn water pump
Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.

this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.

I had the same problem, drove home just like you did, took it to my mechanic and he changed the "speed sensor " problem solved. "
