This would depend on how comfortable you are with getting in to a tight space and removing it then replacing it. You would have to drain your fluid. Remove the hose, install the new one. And refill the fluid. If this doesn’t sound bad, do it yourself. All you will need is a pan big enough to hold a couple of gallons of fluid, a screw driver, pair of pliers and some towels to cleanup with.

My 2005 beetle heater will take too long to blow hot air..


hi Jonathan.
leaks in your 2005 Volkswagen Beetle. Leaking coolant is one of the more common types of fluid leaks on Beetles. Engine coolant (which is also called antifreeze or anti-freeze) moves through the inside of your Beetle's engine and keeps it from overheating. Coolant can leak from the reservoir or from the hoses, in 2005 Beetles coolant leaks are most likely to occur where the hoses connect to the engine.
A few things to note about coolant is that it is sweet tasting and highly toxic, so it can end up in the dog's stomach pretty quickly. If you ignore a small coolant leak long enough, you will run out of coolant, which leads to an overheated engine and other serious, but highly avoidable, problems. In many 2005 Beetles, an anti-freeze leak can cause the temp sensor to record high engine temperatures. thermostat most likely culprit if it is taking a long time to heat up.

I have a 2001 VW Beetle. I started the car and the engine light was blinking and coolant container was empty, added coolant and the next evening the light came on again. I noticed a leak on the front...


look for a leak from the drain hole under the pump housing, if no leak not a water pump
take the car to a radiator specialist shop and have a coolant pressure test done to determine where the leak is
if it has plastic tanks for the radiator , they split with time and leak under pressure and a pressure test will reveal exactly where the leak is unlike a guess

My 2001 beetle is overheating, the water jug on the right side when you open the hood is draining every two days but Idon't see any fluid ever leaking from the car. What could this be?


I think I just answered this ::

The usual suspect for this symptom is a leaking head gasket. Check oil to see if has a brownish color. If the head gasket is leaking the coolant is being burned off in the engine as well as coolant is going inot the crankcase (oil).

The fix is to replace the headgasket. More info, let me know.

The water is leaking out of my 98 beetle. I fill up the reservoir and after driving less than 5 miles the temp light starts flashing. The water is leaking out from a plastic looking box next to the engine....


You are referring to the Expansion Tank and it has hoses as well as wires for the sensors. this site has the tanks with the sensors already installed cost to you about $16.94 + shipping im sure.

I have a 04 VW Beetle with a 2.0. Just replaced the thermostat. Now it is leaking coolant badly. I have checked and seems to be comming from the middle of the engine. I have checked both the thermostat and...


If it is not coming out of any hose connection, and it is in the middle front area...it is most likely the water pump. You may be able to get a look at the pump, which is run by the timing belt. The pump mounts behind its rear cover unfortunately. Some water pumps have a small hole that you can check for water leaking out to indicate it is bad. If not, you will have to remove the timing belt rear cover to check the water pump gasket area for water leaks.
A head gasket is not likely unless you find water in your oil.
Good Luck!

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi


You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.

2003 volkswagon beetle radiater leak


Hi, you 1st have to determine the exact location of the leak, which may involve removal of the radiator to repair anyway. How bad is the leak? How often do u have to add coolant, and how much? If it's a minor leak, you can purchase 'radiator stop leak' from a parts store, that will seal it.
so, try the stop leak if it's a minor leak, you can have it removed and repaired, or purchase a new one. Having said all that, the leak could be a hose leaking, but running down and dripping off the radiator making it look like a radiator leak. With engine warm but not running, use a small mirror to hunt around to see if u can find the source of the leak. Look closely under the radiator hoses, as that could be where the leak is. It would be from the radiator bottom and up, any further back and it wouldn't show up at the bottom of the radiator, so no need to check back any further. Let me know what u find,good luck countrycurt0
