It should be on the bottom of the vehicle right in the middle with nothing blocking it so you have to get under it but it shouldn't be too bad.

Catalytic Converter light on. What is the likely cause of this? Should I continue to drive the VW Tiguan 1,4tsi 2011

One or both of the Oxygen sensors is bad, or the Cat itself is clogged or leaking. A visual check then bang the Cat and if you hear chunks banging around, then its busted up inside. Replace it.

Error code 2005 vw beetle -P2096

code p 2096 refers to post cat converter fuel trim(FT) bank 1 ---too lean===causes --cat converter---exhaust leak
it also refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 1--range/ performance --circuit high====causes --wiring short to positive ---HO2S
replace the HO2S using the correct socket so the wires do not get damaged
for the first one check for an exhaust leak in the flex section of the exhaust pipe under the steel mesh

Error code: Code of P0420 catalyst efficiency below threshold What does this mean? have replaced o2 sensor on cat but code continues.

I assume your Vehicle is an Audi/ VW as this is a VW fault code. The o2 sensors measure the oxygen in the exhaust gases and compare it to the out side air, there by working out how efficiently the the fuel is been burnt. The engine control unit will use this and other information to adjust the fuel quantity being injected. The catalytic converter breaks down certain gases in the exhaust fumes to comply with emission regulations. Some vehicles have an upper o2 sensor [before the cat] and a lower [after the cat]. The readings of the o2 sensors is compared and should be within a certain range. If not a fault will be stored in the memory. The Catalytic converter itself may not be working correctly due to contamination or the baffle may be loose[ usually indicated by a rattle in the exhaust]. One or both o2 sensors could be contaminated with carbon and not giving accurate readings. Also check other silencers for blockages.

Flashing oil light wont go out on 1997 vw transporter

examine the wiring from the switch. if its ok then replace the pressure switch. if it still doesnt fix it then you have a wiring problem elsewhere but it's easier just to replace the switch first because finding broken wires can be very difficult.

P0422 does not refer directly to an O2 sensor. That is a different code. P0422 is about the CAT. How many miles you have it and when did you buy it? VW has extended a warranty on the New Beetles for the CAT to 120,000 mi and 10 yrs. I had the same code and took it to the dealer to see if they'd replace the CAT in the warranty and they did. I had 47,000 miles and bought it at the end of Aug 1999, so I just slipped through. They replaced the downstream O2 sensor as well - all free of charge!
