Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Where is clutch for 03 VW Bettle hydrolic reservoir?

Last night on a long stop and go commute our 99 vw beetle started making a clicking/knocking sound (and i could feel it on the clutch) when shifting. This was also accompanied by a burning smell. (like burning rubber) I just had an oil change at the dealership a couple weeks ago, and the only repairs they said i needed was new brakes. I put new front and rear brakes on the car 5 days ago. Where is the clutch hydrolic fluid reservoir?

    Thank you. There is a good amount of fluid in the reservoir and made the noise (whirrling) last night but not today

Hi there i think you will find that the clutch reservoir is the same as the brake one have a look at the brake reservoir for a pipe leading off it to the clutch pedal area.

hope this is of help Regards JR

it is likely your hydraulic slave cylinder is leaking and the system now has sucked air in the lines from an empty reservoir. First check the clutch reservoir. If empty, check the slave cylinder at the transmission for a leak. If leaking, replace slave and bleed the system. Let me know if you have questions.

Clicking/knocking sound and feel when shifting & smell


first check the clutch hydrolic fluid. If it's low or leaking, it may not disengage the clutch completely causing the disk to drag (and smell) The knocking sounds like you're loosing the thowout bearing and/or possibly the disk (there are cushion springs that may have come out of place). Take it to a transmission shop that does free diagnosis. anything other than fluid-related is going to be pricey.

dont forget to rate ... and dont shoot the messenger

03 vw bettle serptine belt


Replacing the serpentine belt on a New beetle is not easy as it was on the old one.

First you need to remove the Water tank, and undo the hoses near to the water tank.
Then you remove the three bolts securing the tensioner with a 13mm socket wrench, and release the tensioner.
Then you replace the belt.

The procedure is explained here on pages 2 to 5
, do not go over page 5, the rest of the procedure is on replacing the timing belt, and you risk to damage your car by touching the timing belt.

Once you replace serpentine belt, ensure that the pumps is running, that the belt is well in tension, and that is solidly there, not slipping out.

All the repairs must be done or supervised personally by a qulified mechanic.

Regards.
