    Go under the car and the drain plug is on the back of the side tank of the radiator, most often driver side but check both sides of the tanks

SOURCE: 2003 VW Beetle battery drain

I think I remember running into this once before and found a factory rear speaker amplifier in trunk that stayed powered on then we replaced the amp and the new one did the same thing . then checked radio coding and it wasn't set to proper code so it didn't know to turn off the amp. changed the coding to correct setting and bingo problem solved. hope that might help but coding can only be done by dealership.

SOURCE: 1998 beetle - how to get the fuel filter off

The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a face full of gas. The filter comes off by pushing the fuel line toward the filter and then pushing the quick release button on the fuel line. The fuel line should then decouple - the filter lives under the car near the right rear tire (just in front) Good luck and be careful

SOURCE: how to add trans fluid

Checking the transmission fluid in your Volkswagen isn't as simple as it used to be. To check the transmission fluid level requires your vehicle to be on a lift that it can be set level on. With the engine running and transmission warm, a plug has to be removed from the bottom of the transmission pan. This plug is at the base of a short stand-pipe (tube) inside the transmission oil pan. With the plug removed a small amount of oil should spill out (what is trapped in the stand-pipe) and if the fluid is at the correct it will continue to drip. If that is the case the transmission fluid is at the correct level. If all that comes out is what is trapped in the stand-pipe then the fluid level could be low. To add fluid to the transmission requires removal of the fill plug that is located on the front left upper corner by the oil pan. Oil is added at that point until oil starts running out or dripping from the stand-pipe. When replacing the fill plug you also need a replacement lock for the plug from Volkswagen. Many of today's vehicles are equipped with sealed transmissions that require specialized procedures, equipment and parts to check the transmission fluid level. Sorry for the bad or good news. This way just make sure that the person services the transmission to keep the warranty valid.

I have a 2003 VW Beetle - love the car except I have to monitor the oil every month - it goes low - no leakes per mechanic both dealership and private. Was told by VW mechanic that Beetles use lots of oil....

Sounds like an isolated problem. While it's true that VW Beetles use a lot of oil, it sounds like you are loosing an abnormally high amount if your having to add oil every month. If it's not leaking out it has to be burning out through the engine. A good indicator of loosing too much oil through the engine is a white smoke coming from your exhaust.

Also, be certain your using the SAE 5W-30 oil that's recommended by VW.

98 vw beetle misfiring after rain. New plugs, coil cas cracks????

Yes, this will allow for the energy being generated to the plugs to release onto anything close enough to give it a ground. I found a website that said to remove it and coat it with liquid steel 2 part epoxy. I did that on m y '98 Beetle and worked very well for about another year. These coil packs are a POS and VW knows it, but will do nothing to resolve the issue. I did see where they recalled all 2001 & 2002 VW's to replace them, but did nothing to acknowledge the previous years, which are of the same caliber.
