SOURCE: is a 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI diesel a non interference motor

Yes, it is. If you go to http://tdiclub.com/articles/ and look at the "TDI How To" section there is lots of info, and a step by step description of timing belt replacement.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

SOURCE: 99 volkswagen beetle timing belt replacement.

Shouldn't need to remove the big centre bolt to remove the pulleys. There are 4 allen key headed bolts that hold the pulleys onto the end of the crankshaft.Remove these and the pulleys and you can then remove the timing belt covers and get to the belt.

SOURCE: 99 Beetle Serpentine belt diagram

The serpentine belt on my 2001 Beetle loops around the outside of the large pulley closest to the firewall, at the bottom, then goes around the outside of the forward lower pulley, then crosses to the inside of the one right above the forward lower pulley, then loops over the outside of the alternator pulley at the top front side, then goes inside under the tensioner pulley, and back down to the outside of the big rear pulley.

I hope that description makes sense. A picture would work a lot better, but I don't have an easy way to post it. Also, I know you asked about the '99 Beetle, but I assume its routing is the same as the 2001 (which is the one I have).

1999 vw beetle timing belt broke. i started it immediatly after this happened. did i bend a valve? and is it worth repairing


All engines for 1999 Beetle are interference engines, so yes you probably bent a valve. Not knowing much about your car, model, equipment, condition and mileage I can't really tell you if it's worth repairing. It just depends on how much damage was done. I would get a couple of estimates from reputable repair shops and compare that to the value of the car. If the car is in otherwise great shape and the repair bill isn't too high I would consider fixing it. Use the link below to figure out the value of the car.

If the engine is running when turning steering then it sounds like a loose alternator drive belt, if the engine is switched off and the noise is coming from inside the car at the steering wheel area it will be the steering wheel coil spring swicth gear

My timeing belt broke on my 2001 vw beetle i replaced it but it wont start


Unfortunately, it is an INTERFERENCE ENGINE, which means that if a timing belt breaks, you will bend several valves. You will have to pull the top half of the motor and have some valves replaced.

What service should be done on a 2000 new beetle that has 20,000 miles? If a timing belt fails will it total an engine as in a honda?


yes, it is an interference engine, so if the timing belt fails it blows the engine, but 20K is very early to worry about that. at that mileage, there shouldnt be too much to worry about other then maybe some fluids.

Check engine light,'99 beetle


Have you had your brake light sensor replace. They have a recall on it. Change out your drive belt and it should make the noise go away. As long as it's cooling(a/c) i would not change compressor.
