Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

I have a 98 VW Beetle which I replaced the AC compressor and drier about 1 1/2 years ago. Now the problem I'm having is that it just recently stop blowind cold air. But whats more unusual is that if i drive the car with the air on, even though its blowing warm air, the AC kicks on after 15 minutes and starts blow cold air. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem?

    Hi Brad,

    The last time they put freon in my system was when I had my compressor replaced. Do you think I'm in need of freon? It's been about a year and a half now.

may need to replace the pressure switch for the ac as well they will go defective a lot of times as well.cheap part go to auto zone or advace parts or any you choose and ask for a ac cycle switch and they will hook you up.

My daughter is buying a 1999 VW Beetle and the AC is not working, the driver side window will not go down and the buttons that opens the trunk and fuel door will not work. Will these be really expensive to...


I have a friend with a 1999 Beetle. The Window was a pain, ended up taking it a shop. 285 at $90 per hour labor, saved an hour because I had taken apart the door.

AC not working at all? Likley the AC Controller (475) or the blower motor regulator (225).

Wiring is also bad in the one your looking at likely. And wiring jobs are a pain.

It will need a new timing belt at 90K for 600-800. DIY will run you 200.

I am fairly competent with car repair and can usually fix most things myself, but I trust others with wiring issues and computer issues.

Skip that car.

Check with VW to see if they issued a recall on the window regulators. They replaced both of mine about 2 years ago based upon a service recall. I had a 98 VW Beetle.
