No. The Cabrio is not made for towing and does not have the proper axle ratio, trans cooler, etc. Ive seen a lot of people these days putting trailer hitches on cars and for larger cars this may work as the motor can compensate. Your Cabrio is 4 cylinder and to pull that load will overwork the motor and cause it to fail much sooner. Not to mention that it will wear out your clutch plate in your manual transmission.

Need diagram of fuses for 2002 vw cabrio and what number is for the fuel pump relay?

VW does not supply free owners manual downloads, so we have no fuse box diagrams. You can purchase the owners manual from the dealer.

What are the ramifications of pulling a 800lb wave runner..with my 98 cabrio

This car is not designed to tow any weight let alone a 800 pound wave runner on a trailer weighing even more. You will be towing over 1/2 ton. Possibly overheating the engine and transmission and you will have a hard time stopping unless the trailer has brakes. Not a good idea.

How do i put the top up on a 2000 vw cabrio manuely

If it has a power top in the truck on the left hand side is a round plastic plug or cap, about 4". Pull it out. Behind it is a T handle bleeder screw to release the pressure from the pump. Turn the screw to the left, this will let you open and close the top manually.

My Cigarette Lighter in my 97' VW Cabrio went out.. I have not found a Blown Fuse. What else could i look for to repair it?

Check to see if there is power in the socket with a test light. If there is no power, you have a blown fuse. If there is power, it's probably just dirty, or poorly grounded.
