Sounds like you unplug tge wiring harness or broke the speedometer cable. Id leave more towards an unplugged harness.

There are even a set of torx screws behind the radio. use a flashlight to see then they are easy to miss.
If you don't know how to get the radio out you need a tool shaped kind of like a key. One goes in each side to unlock the radio and it will pull out forward.

BTW - if you have less than 100,000miles you might be able to have your cat replaced under warranty by the dealer. In Canada it's 160,000km.

SOURCE: 1998 vw beetle over heating

that will the next thing.
make sure the water is restricted at any point, from the lower hose to the engine back to the upper hose and back to the radiator.
the best way to check that out is to flash the radiator. you can see the water change color and feel the engine temperture.

check the vehicle spped sensor on the transmission, if that does work, it may be the gear on the differential that has come apart. that gear is plastic and does break. if this is the case, there is a way to remove the differential and replace the plastic gear, not the transmission.

98 VW Beetle replace seats


hi as long as the seats are out of the same shape as yours if your is not the soft top version then the seats need to be out of the same as yours, but other than that they should just fit strait in they will be held in by 4 bolts 2 a the front of the seats and 2 at the back and if you have an airbag in the seat then you need to undo the block connector on the bottom of the seat and then connect the seats up your getting. if your seats have air bags then the new seats need to have air bags also but if your seats are not air bag then it wont matter if the new seats are or not aas you would just not connect the wires up.

other than that you should have no problems changing the seats over
