SOURCE: 2000 VW Beetle 1.8 turbo

Thermstat is located at the front of the motor to the left(passenager side of motor) under the intake by the serpent belt area you'll see the goose neck bolted to the block. Part cost $20. If a car service does it about $150 or more. And if you need a wtaer pump it's located behind the timing belt cover.( VW won't recall none of these cars for cooling problems, electrical problems and so on. 1.8 turbo is the worst of all the VW's hope the head on your motor doesn't melt.) Get it fixed and trade it in. Buy American.

SOURCE: location of engine thermostats on 2003 ch2500hd turbo diesel

Check this location.
Between the alternator and A/C compressor, on the top. The other thermostat with vent holes goes toward the rear of the engine.
I believe the temp ratings are different for each.
Let engine cool before working on it.
Clean up an spilled radiator fluid. It will destroy pets liver in 24 hours if they drink it.

SOURCE: How do I change a headlight lamp in a 2003 VW New Beetle Turbo?

The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.

Beetle thermostat


Just a couple things to mention here
  1. Is the thermostat in correctly? Don't take this wrong, but I've seen people put them in backwards, so just make sure the copper pellet is on the engine side
  2. Is there air trapped behind the thermostat? If hot coolant cannot get to the copper pellet, the thermostat will not open even though the engine gets hot. Ensure the engine coolant has had the air bled from the system.
  3. Is the water pump spinning? In the right direction? In other words, check the belt routing
Hope this helps

Hi there well done for a great job right my vw sharan 2001 tdi curently is not heating and the water from the engine is not hot when you touch on the pipes they are just warm however the heater gage...


First time you might check the thermostat operating.


Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!


The thermostat location for 2001 VW Sharan 1.9 TDI is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!

Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 044121113, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $25):

Important note: Always replace the thermostat seal, position 7 in the above picture.

The bearings and seals in the turbo are going bad, so oil is getting burned with the fuel.

#4 coil needs replacing


here is what i remember ... there was a class action law suit against VW about the high failure rate of the coils especially for the 4 cyl cars with turbo ... VW lost and agreed to install heat shields around the coils ... not sure what years are involved but you might check with a VW dealer to see if you come under that agreement .. as i recall VW charged a fortune for the replacement coils and labor.. a few years ago you could expect a second coil to go bad and even a third or all eventually .. VW would only change one coil at at time when in warranty .... the replacement coil did not appear to be an improved version .. .. it looks like VW is obligated to install the heat shields on models included in the suit ..
