On a 2003 vw new beetle to replace a headlight on the drivers side does the air filter housing have to be removed


Only if it's in the way of your getting to the bulb. If it is, yes, it has to be removed. Fortunately, that is one of the few components that is supremely easy to remove, and the reason for my cheeky comment. The bolts for the housing should be under the filter.

Hi I have a 2000 vw beetle I had the oil changed and it all leaking twice as soon as they put it in it came out. Can you help me with this problem.


Have it towed back to the shop, it sounds like they installed the filter improperly or left the drain plug loose.

WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION OIL FILTER IN A 2003 EYP VW JETTA AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION?


The transmission doesn't have a filter. The oil filter is usually on the bottom of the engine. Both have a bolt that can be taken off to drain the fluids. Usually, they are on the bottom. Jack your car up and you should be able to find them, or refer to your manual.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?


Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way

98 VW Beetle Check Engine light


Could be a lot of things, take it to autozone. More than likely they can scan the code for you, they can't tell you exactly what is wrong but they can steer you in the right direction. Give them a call to see if they are able to scan the codes on your VW. Good luck.

Removing VW polo 2005 battery?


Removing a battery from a Beetle is a bit complex and tricky. I just changed the battery in a 2003 2.0 Beetle. However, the process is very similar in a TDI Beetle. You will need more than your standard generic tool set in order to complete this task. Your tool list needs to consist of a pair of pliers (prefer locking type), a # 20 TORX head screwdriver (You will also need this if you ever plan on changing the Beetle's internal dash pollen filter for the A/C. ), a 10 mm and 13 mm sockets, a long extension and a wobble or universal to allow flexibility in tight spaces, an allen socket for removing the power steering reservoir, and a small adjustable wrench or a 10mm to remove the battery cables. If you are changing the battery you might as well buy a new Air filter since you will need to remove the air box in order to replace the battery. If you do change the air filter you will need a phillips head screwdriver.

1. Pop the hood.
2. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that hold down the air filter box.
3. Undo the clamp that holds the large tubing to the air box using your pliers. Move the tubing away from the box.
4. Unclip hose attached to the back of the air box near the large hose (under it).
5. remove the small breather hose from the air box.
6. Pull air box up and out.
7. Remove snap on cover from top of battery.
8. Remove small snap on wiring cover from back of the battery covering.
9. Unbolt power steering reservoir (next to battery case).

10. Disconnect the battery cables. Positive side first.
11. Remove the 13 mm bolt at the base of the battery along with the hold down clamp.
12. Pull the top wiring away from the battery case and then slide the battery towards the engine.
13. Remove the plastic battery case.
14. Remove the battery

Secodary Air Pump 2001 Beetle 1.8 Turbo


Had one changed on my daughters 1998 VW Beetle, cost nearly $650 for part plus installation. Failure came while her car was in Boston so I was unable to complete the task. The part is readily accessible in the front of the engine compartment, and not all that difficult to replace. If you can change brakes, alternators, serpentine belts, etc. you should be able to change the secondary air pump. Check with your local parts supplier like AutoZone or Murrays, they may have tips & tricks to make the job a bit easier.

Good luck, and have confidence.
