Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

In reference to your post in the New Beetle window problem thread:

Hi, I saw you said you fixed the issue yourself. I have the same problem and bought the kit, but all I can find in the way of DIY guides are for the Jetta and Golf models. Do you know if the steps would be pretty much the same for the New Beetles? Thanks!

The bolt locations may be somewhat different, but the idea and the techniques are the same.

The window is unglued on the bottom and sides.


The dealer can fix virtually any problem with a late model car. But, if you use epoxy or trim adhesive, you may be able to do the repair yourself.

I once used 'gel' super glue to exactly meter and put glue where it belongs and get an instant bond on rubber to glass or rubber to metal bonding.

2002Beetle Power Windows constantly breaking, looking for parts


You have 2 options..........1) go to the nearest junk yard and purchase the assembly as they probably won't sell you just the plastic pieces or.......2) try the dealership as those pieces are more than likely a dealer item only.

Do you have to take off the front end to replace the timming belt


No you don't, but it's quite a job to change the belt. For more information and a do-it-yourself-guidance (don't start unless you know what you're doing !) please refer to: http://fromthescratch.com/In-the-Garage/Engine-and-Mechanical/Timing-Belt-Replacement-New-Beetle.html

VW 2000 New Beetle door sensor/car alarm goes off when doors open.


I found a thread - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461 that details the repair of the soldering on the key lock door module. Our 2000 new beetle had the same issue. Also sometimes it refused to start. Soldering pins fixed it all.

Also see http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107 for releasing window from track, And door handle from inner panel.

I ripped the door apart and re-solderd the pins. I only had one pin with cracked solder but two others looked thin so I did them while I was in there. It's about a four or five hour project if you have all the tools. (8mm triple square also called an 8mm internal was the hardest to find - Also needed Torx T8 T10 T15 and T30 plus Philips Screw Driver. )
Project is difficult but not too bad for the mechanically inclined. A 7 on a scale of 10.
Since re-soldering pins - no more issues! My guess is that a VW dealer would get $200 for a new moduel plus 5 hours of service time for this gig - easily a $500 to $1000 bill. My cost - several new tools - about $25.00.

Removal of door gromet


I would just get a unibit and drill a hole, put some protective loom and run the wire through, i cant really tell you how to correctly remove the gromet because i need to see it in person.

Good luck..
