Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle and the trunk will not open anymore. It used to work perfectly fine a week ago but now it will not open and wont even pry open a little bit. My dad and I cant not figure out how to get the back panel off while the door is shut. Do you have any idea how to get to the hatch and alter it?

Do you mean to say that even if you move the emblem aside and use the key, the hatch will not unlatch?

My CD players says check magazine when magazine is already in there.....


My 1999 Beetle did the same thing. I didn't have any luck repairing it, even tried a different magazine but nothing helped. Fortunately I found someone local selling a used trunk-mounted CD changer for $10, so I bought that and it worked like a champ.

So for me, I ended up having to replace the CD changer to fix this problem. Hope you have better luck.

Trunk wont open unless someones pressing the button and someones pulling up on the trunk


maybe the locking mechanism which latches the trunk closed needs to be adjusted a little more loosly (move the latch so that it engages sooner as you close the trunk) - do this by loosening 2-3 bolts to move the latch.

Hi. we have a VW Beetle 2002 2.0. the trunk is locked a week ago. Help please.


If the car has an electrical lock, please refer to your local volkswagen dealer. If it's mechanical, you could be able to open it from inside, then check the mechanism for errors.

Rear trunk wont close, power trunk wont close mechanisms seem to be fine just wont latch


You can adjust the trunk lid by loosening the bolts at the hinges. If that wont work then there is a micro switch incorporated within the trunk latch. You will need to replace the entire latch unit unfortunatly.
