Hello,
There are several places it could be leaking out from. It could be come from a hose that was not properly tightned or from a gasket that was damaged or improperly torqued down. Is the coolant leaking externally or internally?

MY 1998 VW BEETLE IS OVERHEATING ALSO IT SEEMS AS IF THE TIMING BELT IS SLIPPING OFF THE PULLY WHEEL. WHAT TO DO


The timing belt is routed around the water pump and if it is slipping off the pulley, your water pump is not correctly cooling your car. Have the timing belt and water pump replaced.

Unable to locate the water pump on the 1998 volkswagen beetle need to remove the water pump but cannot locate it,


  • Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.

  • 2

    Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.

  • 3

    Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.

  • 4

    Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.

  • 5

    Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.

  • Put on the New Pump you get to it from the front....it is internal.....

    Show me how to replace a water on a 1999 VW Passat e a water pump on a 1999 VW Passat


    It depends on what engine you have, but all 3 are similar. They are all in the front of the engine, so the water pump can be run by a belt. With the 1.8 turbo, it is run by the serpentine belt, but you still have to take the timing belt off because it is behind the timing belt slightly. The Vr6 is run by the timing belt, so also needs the belt removed. The V6 was less common, but also difficult. You do not have to take the timing belt off I think, but you have to remove the whole chassis at the front, because there is so little room otherwise. There really are only 4 main bolts holding the whole chassis front on. It is recommended that the thermostat and timing belt be done at the same time, to save labor, since it is intensive on any engine.

    Replacing the serpentine belt on a New beetle is not easy as it was on the old one.

    First you need to remove the Water tank, and undo the hoses near to the water tank.
    Then you remove the three bolts securing the tensioner with a 13mm socket wrench, and release the tensioner.
    Then you replace the belt.

    The procedure is explained here on pages 2 to 5
    , do not go over page 5, the rest of the procedure is on replacing the timing belt, and you risk to damage your car by touching the timing belt.

    Once you replace serpentine belt, ensure that the pumps is running, that the belt is well in tension, and that is solidly there, not slipping out.

    All the repairs must be done or supervised personally by a qulified mechanic.

    Regards.
