Call VW dealer and have your vehicle numbers and they should be able to get that information for you.

SOURCE: bad missing in motor on 2001vw beetle

If it is a 1.8 turbo the plugs are under the coil packs on top of the engine. A regular spark plug wrench will fit them. They are down in the block about six inches. They are easy to change. I changed them in about 30 min. The coil packs are held on by 2 torx screws.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 01 kia optima.its not in the fuse box under the hood or dash any suggestions?

If you have no wiring diagrams or experience
with electrical troubleshooting, your just guessing
and wasting time

Fuses,Relays and all the things you hear about,
just don't up & fail that offten.

You didn't say what the problem was

If it doesn't start or shuts off while driving,
the fuel pump may be worn out.

If you had an owners manual you would know where the
relays are. I don't. I would need the same info you do

I have a 2001 Beetle, the transmisson seen to have a pause and then engage when driving normaly and it's worst on the hills, after driving a distance it smells some kind of quemical that is not oil or gas, the beeping sound and the engine light on the dashboard goes on when stopping (may be the motor) and the temperature blue light goes on constantly. Are all of this related? to transmission? separate issues? The dealer and 2 other private mecanics don't give a perfect diagnosys they are all the time guessing. What's wrong? please advice.
