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"

    2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster


    I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

    There should be a diagram in your Owner's Manual. I have one for my daughter's 1998 Beetle that should be the same as in the 2000 Beetle. Can email it to you if you post an email address that I can send it to.
