SOURCE: 2000 vw bug - do i need a special tool to replace

just normal hand tools. there are "quick" disconnect plastic things that hold the lines onto the filter. They are a pain to get off, so take your time. these things get brittle and brake easily.

SOURCE: fix clutch cable

Removal
Raise the rear of the vehicle and support if securely on jackstands after loosening the lug bolts of the left rear wheel. Take off the wheel.
Find the clutch release lever on the upper left side of the transaxle and unhook the cable from the lever.
Remove the pedal cluster and unhook the clutch cable from the clutch shaft.
Pull the clutch cable forward, through the center tunnel, and out the hole for the pedal cluster.

Installation
Coat the new cable with multi-purpose grease.
Find the front end of the cable guide tube by reaching into the hole for the brake and clutch pedal cluster. Grasp the tube with your fingers and insert the new cable into the tube.
After you ve started the cable into the tube, push it to the rear, through the tube. If you need to, lubricate the cable with multi-purpose grease as you push it into the tube.
The "sag", or bend, in the clutch cable guide tube is important - the friction it imposes on the cable minimizes clutch chatter. To alter the sag, install or remove washers between the holding bracket and the end of the cable tube.
Now adjust the clutch pedal freeplay.

1999 VW Bug Service engine Light


When you say water light comes on, do you mean coolant level, or coolant temp or ? Check coolant level and top off if needed. Bring the Beetle to a parts store, most offer free check of check eng. light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' stored engine codes in the cars computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest what to do. If you have further questions, post them here along with the code numbers.
