It is not necessary to remove the intake manifold to change the spark plugs on a 2.0L engine. You need a long extention with a flexible spark plug socket at the end. To remove the spark plug boots it is good to have the boot puller designed for this instance. They can be had from a good tool store or one of the mobile tool trucks like Snap-On. The hardest plug to get is the #2. I unclip the fuel injector electrical connector and move it out of the way. Then I pull the boot and move it under the intake so I can get the socket on easily. Reinstall the plugs without the rachet. Just turn the extention by hand so as not to damage any threads. Also put a little never-sieze or something similar on the threads before installation. Then use the rachet to tighten the plugs. Reverse assembly.

Wgolf.mk4.reg2000.removing upper part inlet manifold.

If you have a 2000 VW Golf 2.0 liter, the answer is yes. Just remove the top part of the intake manifold. A magnet and long handle allen key set will make the job easier for removing/ reinstalling the cap screws. Once manifold off, cover the intake holes with blue painters tape, to avoid dropping any thing down in them. Take care on plug wire removal. Change each plug one at a time. ***Tighten spark plugs with a torque wrench, spec 22 ft-lb in the Bentley manual. AEG, AVH, AZG eng codes***

2000 Jetta TDI: How do I change spark plugs on 2000 VW jetta 2.0...

You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

We have a 2000 vw beetle it looks like i need to remove the air intake manifold to get to the plugs

Use a deep swivel spark plug socket. Plug accessed above and below the intake manifold. You're one of plenty people tried to do it the hardest, longest and more costly way if you take it out (manifold) it will come. DON'T DON'T DO IT THAT WAY.

With the intake where it is this can be verry hard. You may have to pull the intake manifole to get it done. I can pull 1,3,4 but 2 is a problem. Check with a good auto parts store many times they have people with mechanical skills and loaner tools.

Spark Plugs Location

They're accessible through the top of the engine - open the hood and the spark plug wires should be very easily visible on top of the valve cover. Pluck them out and the plugs are below.

Under the hood, on top of the engine where the wires head into the engine block. The wires can be removed a,d the glow plugs can be extracted. Just follow the cables.
