SOURCE: 2003 volkswagen beetle covertible quarter panel removal

I do not recommend this job unless you are a seasoned mechanic, VW dealership charges $1000 for a reason. They almost earn it on this one. but heres how it's done or how I did it any way. the complete job took me 4 hours and I been at this for 30 years. But a lot of this time was figuring out how it came apart. First, drop the top, pull up on seat bottom and remove it, remove center panel, remove 3 allen bolts at bottom on seat back and remove. headrests, they just pull off, raise top just enough to make hinged panels flip up. remove nut at top rear corner of side panel. you can see the back side of the nut and bolt it is on from the panels that flip up. Remove Nylon push lock rivet where seat belt goes through panel on rear, top, corner. Pull out on panel to release it, there is 5 or 6 nylon locks that just pull out of holes in the body. It will sound like your breaking it when the locks pop loose, or mine did. then lift to gain access to remove seat belt bolts and unplug flip panel motors. remove cable end from its clip. Pull seat belts through panel. Set panel a side. remove torx head bolt around oval panel that speaker is mounted on. unplug speaker and regulator and pull wire harness thru hole. remove 2 allen and 5 hex bolts at top where window would come out if it worked. pull up on plate and move rubber window seal to the side to remove plate. remove 2 nuts at bottom of regulator and one about half way up towards front, lift regulator and window up through top to gain access to 3 nuts that hold window to regulator, from the top lift window out first then regulator. Reverse to assemble it.

SOURCE: is a 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI diesel a non interference motor

Yes, it is. If you go to http://tdiclub.com/articles/ and look at the "TDI How To" section there is lots of info, and a step by step description of timing belt replacement.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

SOURCE: 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle, carbon buildup intake

Carbon build up in TDI's is a common problem. The only solution is to remove the intake manifold and clean it. It's very expensive to have it done, but here is a link to a 'how to' that can help you decide if you want to do it yourself or not. http://www.tdiclub.com/TDIFAQ/TDiFAQ-7.html#g

Once clean, using a VW VAG-COM computer the EGR valve can be reset to reduce carbon build up.

Sounds like your in limp mode. Check engine lights on? You could just have a brake light switch issue. See your dealer.

MY 1998 VW BEETLE IS OVERHEATING ALSO IT SEEMS AS IF THE TIMING BELT IS SLIPPING OFF THE PULLY WHEEL. WHAT TO DO


The timing belt is routed around the water pump and if it is slipping off the pulley, your water pump is not correctly cooling your car. Have the timing belt and water pump replaced.

Temperture light is red and chiming


Some volkswagons are air cooled, but assuming yours is water cooled, check to be sure the coolant level is up to proper level. I suspect either this or the water pump is defective.

Replace radiator on 2003 new beetle - 2.0 GLS


First you empty water, then remove fan, and radiator.
You need to follow the step by step procedure from a manual, buy the haynes manual for new beetle here is an example on ebay.
Replacing radiator is not a difficult operation, but if you do not do it properly you can damage your car, check that fan is working, water pump is running ok and that there is no leaking after doing the job.
