SOURCE: Drivers side window

Buy a can of spray silicone, soak the window run channels with the spray, run the window up and down 4 or 5 times, this should cure the problem.

SOURCE: convertible top rattles and pops.

the adjustments can be a bit tricky but there are a couple of things you can try.....lube all the seals around the soft top and between the windows ,a light smear of vaseline can get rid of some creaks and groans.also there are 2 metal pegs where the roof locates on to top of the screen if you can find some pipe that will slide over them cut it to about 5-10mm so most of the peg is still exposed, and slide it on this tensions the roof a little and can work wonders.hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to remove vw bug starter

The starter is attached to the transmission forward of the motor. Disconnect the power cables on the starter solenoid and take a wrench to the bolts holding the starter in place - I think the wrench size is 13". It should come out very easy. Oh, be sure to disconnect the battery so you don't short something out.

SOURCE: Catalylic converter 2001 VW Beetle

A broken platinum honeycomb core inside the converter tells you have a misfire problem with your ignition system. Unless you know why it's misfiring and correct that issue you will end up breaking new converters.

Were is the cooling Temp Sensor located on a 2004 vw beetle and is there anything special about replacing it. I have a P2181 code and that is the problem.


that code is for cooling system performance. which probably means you need to replace the thermostat. you can get free repair guides on autozone.com for this vehicle that will tell you where the sensor is

The electric wings will not drop when letting the top down.


I have the same problem with my car. I just bought a 2004 VW Beetle and have never owned a convetible before. So when I saw the wings I asked if this was normal. The mechanic at the dealer said that on the 04 those wings do not retract when the top is down, only when the top is closed. Now my car will beep when I start driving because the top is not down all the way, also the indicator light shows a blinking car in the temp display letting me know the top in not down all the way. I read a solution from someone else and it said to keep keep the button to open the top pressed or pulled.......whichever is the way to open it...until the motor stops, but that did not work. So I decided to do a little research online and saw pictures of 2004 convertible VW beetles with the top down....low and behold the wings were retracted when the top was down. So the mechanic at the dealer lied. If these people do not know what their cars do and don't do, they should not be working there. They are compltley neglagant and incompitent. If anyone has an ansewr for me, it would be appreciated.

The EPC In my 02 bug is on and it wont shift out of park. whats going on?


Hello glitzandg252...This has been a problem for many VW owners.
Brake Light Switch Malfunction is the cause of it. In fact VW has issued a recall for the defective brake switch here's the info:

Recall 04V096000: Brake Light Switch Malfunction

DEFECT: The brake light switch on these vehicles may malfunction. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative, or come on and stay on, even though the vehicle is parked.

REMEDY: Dealers will replace these switches. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Give them a call and see if your vehicle is included in the recall, you will need the VIN number.

In the mean time ...|VW Roadside Assistance has a technique that will get you by until you can get repairs done.... Here's the technique:

1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press the brake pedal 5 times, and on the 5th, keep your foot on the brake and start the car.
3. Let it run 5 seconds, and turn it off.
4. With your foot still on the brake, turn the ignition key 1/4 forward
5. Shift to a position between N & D
6. Now start the car. Shift to D. It what you really want to do is back out, shift from D to R.

Good luck...i hope this helps. Please take time to rate my response a FIXYA...
