Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible

1 Answer

Question rather than a problem

When opening the driver side door of my daughter's 2000 VW Beetle, there is a sound for about 5 seconds that sounds like a motor moving something, but we don't see anything moving. Any idea what it is?

Does she have auto adjusting seats or steering column that does not move because it has not been set? The motor may be trying to adjust something that does not need to be adjusted

There should be a diagram in your Owner's Manual. I have one for my daughter's 1998 Beetle that should be the same as in the 2000 Beetle. Can email it to you if you post an email address that I can send it to.

VW 2000 New Beetle door sensor/car alarm goes off when doors open.


I found a thread - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461 that details the repair of the soldering on the key lock door module. Our 2000 new beetle had the same issue. Also sometimes it refused to start. Soldering pins fixed it all.

Also see http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107 for releasing window from track, And door handle from inner panel.

I ripped the door apart and re-solderd the pins. I only had one pin with cracked solder but two others looked thin so I did them while I was in there. It's about a four or five hour project if you have all the tools. (8mm triple square also called an 8mm internal was the hardest to find - Also needed Torx T8 T10 T15 and T30 plus Philips Screw Driver. )
Project is difficult but not too bad for the mechanically inclined. A 7 on a scale of 10.
Since re-soldering pins - no more issues! My guess is that a VW dealer would get $200 for a new moduel plus 5 hours of service time for this gig - easily a $500 to $1000 bill. My cost - several new tools - about $25.00.

Drivers window wont open


the door panel has 2 small screws at the very bottom of interior panel, another 2 screws behind the pull handle<will need to be pryed apart at the seams of the pull handle, then pull out on panel to release several push clips around the panel then once panel is loose you will need to reach around the panel and disconect latch handle and electrical connectors.
