First disconnect the battery, otherwise the shock of your life is coming. Assuming it's a 2.0L beetle, then you take off the belt, and remove the 2 mounting bolts, disconnect the wires and pull out, it should fit through the area you are working in. If you want a better explination, post a picture of exactally you are working with. (or a link to a picture.)

    My Beetle is a 1.8 turbo. I just don't see a hole big enough to remove alternator from engine compartment.

2001 new beetle battery drain wont start


Alternator!!! Boost the car, if starts let it run for a few min. Once the car has stayed running for a couple of min, unhook the negative terminal on the battery, if it stays running, the battery is junk. If it dies, the alternator is junk. But this is just my past experience, and it worked.

Never know.

Have your battery load tested. It sounds like overnight it's slowly losing it's charge. Another possibility is something electrical is "on" or draining battery overnight.

2001 beetle. epc light on. car won't start.


It sounds like your alternator is not charging. You may want to have it tested and replace/rebuild it if necessary. Many times the problem is that the brushes are worn in the alternator and it stops charging correctly. The brushes are usually attached to the voltage regulator and are replaceable if you have the parts and skill. You can also replace the voltage regulator/brush assembly as a unit.

Many parts stores will test your alternator for free.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,
