Question about Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

Hi, the fan switch seems to have a loose connection. It works some of the time when the switch is pushed in firmly or pulled out firmly but is intermittent. I seems that the blower itself works fine. The problem obviously occurs with "heat" selected as well, which tells me it is just an issue with the switch. Does this sound correct?? Also, how do I go about getting the dash apart to get at the switch. I have the bottom portion removed but cannot find any more screws. Does it just 'pop' off?

The blower/fan control only works in position 4 & 5, is this a switch or circuit card?

Its more than likely a poor connection at the blower motor resistor.Its mounted on the heat duct on the passenger side with 2 screws.I would first turn the ignition and fan switches on with the fan switch on #2 or 3 then wiggle the connector on the blower motor resistor.These resistors get hot and melt the pigtail and usally loose there connection.

Tail light and dash lights not working. fuses and bulbs are good.

The Tail and Dash lights are normally controlled by the same connection in the Light Switch. Check the wiring plug on or near the light switch for a poor connection. Some times the spade connectors in the connecting plug are pushed back because they have not ben secured in the plug properly. Check this by gently pushing then pulling each wire in the connector. there should be little or no movement. Any loose ones will be obvious.

The hood release not working

It could be the release latch is stuck. Find someone to pull the release lever while you firmly press down on the center of the hood just above the front grill. Be careful not to dent the hood. Just give it a few firm shoves repeatedly while your friend pulls on the lever. If it opens, spray the latch with some loose-nut spray while pulling the release cable a few times.

Good luck.

Driver side windshield wiper stopped working and now seems loose at the arm connect

What kind of vehicle is it?? Some vehicles have a nut holding the arm on a splined post. This sound like your problem. Check to see if a nut is loose holding the arm on. If so, with wipers off, locate the arm in the proper rest position to match the other side and push it down firmly on the post. Tighten the nut. If the arm has been loose for a while the splines on the post may be too worn to keep the arm from moving. If this is the case you need parts, probably the the whole wiper linkage. Few models have the pivots separately.
