The oil cap is just in front of the generator, slightly to the left and angled to the left(towards the passenger side)(right as you are looking at it). If this is your first VW Beetle(type 1), it would be beneficial to pick up the book "How to keep your VW alive and running. A guide for the complete idiot". It is a must have book for anyone who has a veedub and wants to do any work on it themselves. Almost anyone who has bought one has had this book since the late 70's. It explains everything in an understandalbe format and is kind of funny too! Let me know if you need anything else.

What would cause my 1999 volkswagon beetle oil light to come on and beep when I just had the oil changed about a couple of months ago?

It could be time for another oil change or your oil level could be low. Check your mileage and see if its time for another oil change. Hope this helps.
