SOURCE: What oil type do I use...2003 vw beetle?

if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.

SOURCE: How do I remove the door panel on my 2003 VW Beetle?

Disconnect your negative battery cable. Locate and remove the screws that hold your interior door handles in place (they may be hidden by snap in, or snap on clips). Remove the interior door handles, then disconnect the wire clips to the switches. Your panel is held in place by snap in clips; use a small pry bar to pull them from the door (try to get as close to, or directly under the clips to prevent them from tearing out of the door panel). Once the clips are pulled, pull the panel upward to remove it from the door.
Install in reverse.

Days after my 50K checkup (no probs), my 2003 VW Beetle convertible check engine light goes on. What can it be & do I really need to take it back to dealer/checkup folks (far & inconvenient)?


The check engine light can be one of many things, even as simple as a loose gas cap. A check engine light means there are error codes in your car's computer. Stop by an auto parts store and ask them to pull the codes. Most of the national chain stores will do it for free. Takes about 5 minutes...

I have a 1998 vw new beetle. The check engine light came on and not sure why. The car seems to be running fine. Last week we replaced the tensioner pulley and a new belt. Now I have the engine light on....


Some auto parts stores scan check engine lights for free. If you can get the code, and tell me what your engine/trans is in the Beetle, I can help narrow down the cause of the check engine light.

I have a 2003 VW Beetle - love the car except I have to monitor the oil every month - it goes low - no leakes per mechanic both dealership and private. Was told by VW mechanic that Beetles use lots of oil....


Sounds like an isolated problem. While it's true that VW Beetles use a lot of oil, it sounds like you are loosing an abnormally high amount if your having to add oil every month. If it's not leaking out it has to be burning out through the engine. A good indicator of loosing too much oil through the engine is a white smoke coming from your exhaust.

Also, be certain your using the SAE 5W-30 oil that's recommended by VW.

My beetle just engine just went off while driving


Make sure the battery terminals are secure. Other than that I would guess there is an electrcal fault on the vehicle. I am not familiar with the beetle but think if I were driving your vehicle I would make sure all electrical connections were as they should be.

Over heating


As a general rule with a modern VW TDI, if it isn't running properly go and get the engine fault codes read by a properly equipped garage. If your usual garage doesn't have the correct equipment I'd recommend finding one that does.

There are so many things that could be wrong that guessing is usually a waste of time, so "get the codes read" :-)

My '96 Passat TD (not a TDI) overheated last week and the battery light came on - it was a failed alternator belt which drives both the alternator and the water pump.

Hope this helps, D.
