BTW - if you have less than 100,000miles you might be able to have your cat replaced under warranty by the dealer. In Canada it's 160,000km.

My problem has been solved. I contacted the VW Customer Service and spoke with an advocate. The advocate and my dealership reached a conclusion and VW has decided to replace the items to alleviate my problem at their cost. Sometimes, dreams come true. Good luck to all of you who have similar problems with your VW Beetle convertible. It took quite a lot of patience and determination on my part, but the VW advocate was sympathetic to my plight since I'd never taken the vehicle anywhere else but the dealership for all repairs. The repairs have not been completed yet, so I cannot say whether or not the dilemma is, indeed, solved.

SOURCE: VW beetle manual to automatic conversion-- possible?

I disagree with honeymokey, but only partly. Most cars are built to accomodate either manual or automatic, and the appropriate version of the transmission gets bolted on at the factory. The fittings are all there for the other kind, though, and the car's computer can accomodate the change as well. That's the whole point of interchangeable parts. In fact, if you read VW fan forums like the TDI Club online, you'll find plenty of folks who've converted their transmissions, though they're usually going in the opposite direction (replacing automatic with manual).

Having said that, this isn't a cheap or simple job. It only makes sense if the old transmission is dead, and needs to be replaced. In other words, it's something you'd do if you were already facing a $4,000 repair bill for a new transmission. Why not spend the money on installing the kind of transmission you really want, if you're going to spend it anyway? If it's just a question of preference, even STRONG preference, you'd have to be a bit nutty to replace a perfectly good transmission. There are plenty of used Beetles around (and Golfs and Jettas, which are exactly the same car with different bodies), so just find one with the transmission you want.

I hear rattling in my catalytic converter of my 1999 VW Beetle. Is there any danger in driving it?


If the rattling is the honeycomb stuff breaking up, it could clog up at the end of the converter, plugging your exhaust, shutting down the car, and leave you stranded. Sometimes they will do that, if the converter is damaged enough.

Hello! I have a 1998 vw beetle and the reverse lights don't work and the check engine light stays on. I replaced both sensors anf the light went out for a few weeks and now it's back on but still runs ok....


ok first of all did you replace the bulbs for the reverse lights ?
the sensors that you replaced are they the o2 sensors or ??
and if you havent replaced the o2 sensors i would start with the one behind you catalytic converter because its most likely going to be that o2 senso or its going to mean you have a bad catalytic converter and its not doing its job right anymore.

Need to know the codes before we can do anything else.
I'll have to get back to you on the voltage at O2 sensors but they could be ok. Cat's perfect output gotta be 100 degrees lower than input. Get codes and I'll help you out.
Try our manuals section to get spec's.

Catalylic converter 2001 VW Beetle


Actually, at 70,000 miles, the dealer should HAVE to replace the catalytic converter, I'm quite sure that ALL converters are federally mandated to be covered up till 80,000 miles (or 90, somewhere like that, but more than 70). So raise hell at your local dealer (and look up more on the info i suggested). If all else fails, it's not hard, 4 or 6 bolts from the flex pipe to the manifold , 13mm bolts holding the hanger, and 16(or 17mm) bolts holding the joining peice at the back. To get the clamp joiner, after you loosen it, hit it towards the back with a hammer, it'll move slowly, but it'll move. also, major tip : USE LOTS OF PB Blaster or WD40, soak down the bolts you want to remove, let them sit for 10 min, then soak them again, then try to remove, if they don't come loose, soak, try harder, and if they loosen some, just work back and forth.

1999 beetle P0422 which O2 is bad the o2 before the cat or after


P0422 - Catalyst below threshold.

Catalytic converter is clogged or out of medium.

Replace it.


ACTUAL DIAGNOSTIC:

Fault Code Definition
Code P0422 indicates that the Bank 1 Main Catalytic Converter's emissions efficiency has fallen below the minimum allowable limit. This threshold is tracked by a Catalyst Monitoring Oxygen Sensor located on or near the outlet of the Catalytic Converter.

Symptoms

* Check Engine Light will illuminate
* In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed

Common Problems That Trigger the P0422 Code

* Defective Catalytic Converter
* Engine misfires have damaged the Catalytic Converter
* Internal engine damage resulting in high oil consumption and/or a leaking Head gasket has damaged the Catalytic Converter

Common Misdiagnoses

* Oxygen Sensors are replaced when the real problem is a damaged Catalyst
* Catalyst is replaced when the real problem is internal engine damage, which is producing elevated emissions levels
* Catalyst is replaced when a misfiring engine is the real problem
