Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
Catalyst removal on a vw beetle
If your "cat" is blocked and you can drive with it then go to your local muffler shop and get it removed/reinstalled, if you need it to be replaced you need a go back to VW.
If you want to do it your self you need a pipe cutting tool( a hack saw works wonders) and a pipe fitting tool (like a welding torch).
***NOTE*** your car will fail an out of province/state inspection if you do not have a "cat" and that means new car or new "cat"

Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.
Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.
Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.
Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.
Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.
