1998 VW Beetle Manuals

I was given a 1998 Volkswagen Beetle it had the head milled and put back on but the person doing the work left with the money for the job and did not do the rest of the job. I have a lot of parts here in the car but I do not have a manual to look at for finishing the job and do it right since I am not a Auto Person to start with. Our car was totaled and we do not have the money to have someone to do it for us. What I need to know is how to do it, in what order to put things together and how to do it some Photos that ID the parts and just what goes to what or some Diagrams to go buy! dose anyone know where I could download a manual in PDF? Thank you for any help you can give me on this matter. until we talk again, peace be with you and yours, TEDRVB

u can get a boot with all accessories and grease for like 12 bucks at napa. u will need a clamping tool but might be able to sub in a vice grips. depending on if its inner boot or outter you have to take the steering knuckle most of the way off and then cut the old boot and slip on new one with grease and then the clamps. when u are done you will need a front ent alignment. for the amount of work and the aliugnment $200 doesnt seam too bad but depends how comfortable u are doing all the work.

SOURCE: My 1999 VW new beetle stalls when it warms up.

The thermostat on your volkswagon helps the engine keep operating at a predetermined temperature for best fuel economy and engine performance. However, the thermostat mechanism wears down after months of use and subsequently fails. If stuck in the closed position, the thermostat will not allow coolant to circulate, causing the engine to heat up dangerously; if stuck in the open position, the engine will never reach proper operating temperature, causing fuel consumption and poor engine performance. In either case, the thermostat must be replaced. Its fairly cheap

SOURCE: 1999 VW Beetle starts and instantly stalls

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

How do i get at the alternator on my vw beetle 1998

We have a 2000 Beetle. You have to remove 4 allan head bolts and remove the throttle body . Remove it from the large hose. This allows you to get to the alternator . Undo 3 bolts on the belt tensioner and remove that. Undo the electrical connections on the alternator. Undo 2 bolts holding the alternator on to the bracket and pry out. Here's where I just about had a meltdown, the alternator won't fit out past the body work. However remove the passenger side headlight. There is a plastic lever you slide all the way up and slide the headlight out. Remove the 3 torx head screws to remove the headlight cup and the alternator will come out no problem through the headlight hole.

Please provide guidance on rewiring a 1974 VW Beetle for a novis person. What to do first, what do I need as a guide to completing this task?

The best way to go about doing this is with a wiring diagram. Go to faxonautoliterature, they have the original VW service manual for you car and it should have the wiring diagram you will need. I have used them before and found their service to be excellent. Hope this helps.
