My 1997 vw cabrio wont start .... I was checking fuses and pulled one out now the car was running while i was doing this once i pulled the fuse the car stoped i put the fuse back in and now i cant get the...


Not knowing what fuse you pulled it will be difficult to know what went wrong. My advice is to ask a tech in the motor shop, to have a look. Tell him / her, what you did and point out what fuse you pulled. That could finding the defect easier for the tech.

1999 vw cabrio convertible top doesn't works


You have to put hydraulic fluid (power steering fluid will work too) in the convertible top motor. The motor is in the trunk, on the left hand side, under a panel. Pull the panel off and that is the electric motor for the top. You'll see a reservoir where you put in the fluid. Put in the fluid and you'll be good to go.

1999 VW Cabrio, convertible top will not go down??


the hydraulic pump may have gone out in order to put the top down or up you will have to lower it by hand first under the top motor there is a t- handled valve loosen that to bleed air pressure then you should be able to manually lower or raise the top

2004 vw beetle window fuse what # would be for the fuses? I don't have a manual & pannel doen't show.


Send me an email address and I'll send along a fuse block diagram for my daughters 1998 Beetle, it's most likely the same in 2004. Compare the arrangement with yours.

The 1998 diagram doesn't indicate any fuse in the inside fuse block that controls the power windows (even though my daughters 1998 has power windows). There is a metal fuse on the fuse block above the battery that controls the cars electrical system, but the diagram indicates that this should only be replaced by a VW Dealer.

Maybe you can call the local VW Dealer once you have a fuse block diagram to refer to. They should be willing to tell you over the phone.
