You have to remove the headlight assembly to get to it. Google "how to change a VW New Beetle headlight bulb" and you can find how-tos with pictures, which is helpful here because one of the bolts holding it in is nearly inaccessible.
For this job, you really need a service manual. Haynes makes good, inexpensive manuals for the home mechanic.
As long as you choose 5W30 Castrol, it will be fine.
"Anti Slip Regulator." IOW Traction Control.
Could it be that the top is not locked down securely.
Under the dash directly above the accelerator pedal
On the stock lenses there should be a small little square covering. Pop that off and there is a screw. Unscrew that and then the lenses is lose and pull it out. When taking the bulb off twist it and slide out. Dont take it to a dealer, they will charge you for something that can be done in 15 mins. If you are wanting the clear lights you need to go to an auto… Read More
I take it that we're talking about a 3.4L V6. If this is the case and you are a relatively handy mechanic it's possible. If not take it to the dealer or a good mechanic who can put it on a lift and possibly get at the rear plugs from underneath. If you still want to do the job yourself go out and buy the Haynes Service Manual for your van; it'll cost you about… Read More
The easist way is to have the car on a lift. They best access is from underneath. I've done them from the top but it is nearly impossible to reach a few from the top. VBD buy a flex socket from autozone, its what i used on my 92 with a 350 a few were a little trouble not that bad, a 80 caddy fleetwood with a 368 is harder, only thing to do is… Read More
I've added a link to the right that will take you to a walkthrough with pictures. The plug behind the steering shaft is the one for cylinder 3. All the spark plugs can be accessed through the wheel wells. To get the last one, you simply move the steering shaft. Moving the steering shaft only takes a couple minutes and saves a lot of struggling and busted knuckles. The steering shaft has one bolt at… Read More
locate the battery. unscrew the gound (black) cable from the battery. Then the Live (red) wire. then you should be able to just lift the battery right out. (do NOT tilt the battery it will leak on you or your nice paint job.) Answer Careful! Just pulling the battery out of your bug can lead to disaster. The Beetle, as will all modern VW's, is equiped with an onboard computer. Important settings such as idleing… Read More
Center of dash, below the ash tray is a slot 4 inches by 1/2 inch.
everyone i know has their own way of doing it but i just use a 6" extension on a 3/8 air ratchet. if you work at it a bit you can finangle it down in there and get them out. you have to remove the air box that holds your air filter out of the way and remove the washer fluid bottle on the otherside. You should replace plugwires, coilpack and plugs all in one… Read More
you take a screwdriveer, pop off the sides, unscrew some screws, and theres another one by your mirror, and take off the crank arm (if it doesent have power windows) hope this helps
VERY CAREFULLY - If you break the quick disconnects on the fuel lines it will cost you a fortune!!! 500.00 + because they have to string NEW FUEL LINES. - I have replaced the fuel filter a couple of times - I have a 2000 beetle with a 1.8 Turbo. The fuel lines are pressurized so you will need to relieve the pressure before you try and remove the filter or you will get a… Read More

Look in the housing located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
inside your trunk behind the rear lights there are two plastic circles that pop out to access the tail lights, once these are out you should be able the push the light out .

No it does not but you can have the dealer install one or a local car audio shop can do it.
You'll find access to the stereo by removing the ashtray and all screws along the panel enclosing the stereo. You may find it easier to remove the panel enclosing the shifter for more clearance. With the stereo screws removed, disconnect antenna wire and squeeze to disconnect plugs to stereo. You'll save time if you check your new stereo antenna plug. A Nissan has a 2 prong and most stereos have a single prong, which requires… Read More

It is underneath the Brake Pedal. It's mounted to and right above the brake pedal.
You must remove the rear interior panel by lifting on the rear, and pushing the panel forward. Once done, the speaker is behind the panel, bolted to the sheetmetal frame with 4 bolts. You will need a Speaker Adapter to mount an aftermarket 6.5" speaker. Or you may use a factory replacement speaker. The adapter that I found was a Scosche SAVW6.
it could be one of a couple things. First, check the connections to the gauge at the back of the cluster bezel. Second, it could be the float on your fuel pump might be stuck or the sending unit might be damaged. Lastly, if it is not any of these you should just replace the gauge with an after market one, if you are concerned about making it look stock/original, go to a junk yard… Read More

Polarizing a beam of light is simply accomplished by passing the light through a polarizing filter. The polarizing filter will permit only light of a given polarization (or polarity) to pass through it. There are several different types of polarization, but they affect similar results. Use the links and check out the pictures.
Generally, you use a jumper wire on the regulator between the battey terminal and the armature terminal but only for one or two seconds so you don't burn anything up.
Look underneath the drivers side of the front bumper.
Adding more info to this: The problem is only changing from 1st to 2nd, downshifting from 3rd to 2nd is fine. This is only an intermittent problem and but does happen in approx 50% of gear shifts. Sometimes it is as if the gear is simply not there and I have to go straight to 3rd, other times it slips straight into 4th instead of 2nd. I would really like to know what is wrong… Read More
If yours has the OHV engine (160HP), then it depends on your tailwind. However other Explorers are limited electronically to 100 MPH because of the tire speed rating. Some enthusiasts have installed something called a "Superchip" to override the limiter, but the practice is ill-advised. Glad I could be of service, and in fact I own a 1999 SOHC Explorer myself!
My family has a 2000 VW Beetle 2.0 Std Trans. It idles okay. But as you drive the vehicle starts to stall. But as you step off the gas pedal the engine starts back up. If you try to open the throttle the engine almost stalls. The engine has had new spark plug and head gaskets and new fuel pump and new fuel filter. Codes are 300 301 302 303 304.

Mine is the 1993 Celica (Australian Edition). It is the one with pop-up headlights. To replace a headlight bulb, turn the car off, but leave the lights on (popped up). With a Phillips head screwdriver, remove the three screws that hold in the panel around the headlight. Remove the panel. Remove the four silver screws holding in the silver surround around the headlight itself. Be careful not to drop the screws. Slide the headlight forward… Read More
to change the plugs you must take off the spark plug boots..you then take the spark plugs out with a 5/8 sparkplug socket..put the new plugs in the holes and finger tighten them a little(with the socket and extension so that it doesnt cross thread)it might also be wise to replace the wires if they look bad or cracked..
Check all of your blinker lights. There are two in each tail light, one in each center signal, and one at the corner of each headlight, a total of 8 lights should blink when you have the flashers on. If a bulb is burnt out, it will increase the blink rate. Also, installing LED's in the tail lights will cause the blink rate to increase.
Changing spark plugs is pretty simple. Disconnect the battery, remove the wires to the spark plugs from their location, remove the old spark plugs, put in the new spark plugs, plug the cables to the right spark plug and reconnect the battery.
Some easy ways to identify a superbeetle are as follows: 1. windshield. If the windshield is curved, the car is *definitely* a superbeetle. However early superbeetles had a flat windshield, ss a flat windshield is no guarantee of it being a standard beetle. 2. Spare tire. If the spare tire stands up in the trunk, it is a standard beetle, if it lays flat it is a superbeetle. 3.front suspension. Squat down next to a… Read More
I just did it on both of my 2004 VW Jetta Wagon headlights!! They recommend you replace both at the same time and I highly recommend it since both of mine went within 2 weeks of eachother. Last night I had to drive home with just my high beams on because both headlights were out. I'm not a big fix-it girl, but my uncle told me it's relatively straightforward so I gave it a try… Read More
That depends on which model you have, but it either used a Garret T3 ('84-'87) or T25 ('88-'00). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the 1990-1996 Nissan 300ZX (Z32) the stock turbos are two (2) T25 turbos. Note: The automatic transmission models come with a smaller Turbine A/R than the Manual transmission. So, the automatic's turbos might spool a tiny bit faster, but will die off sooner in the higher RPM's I have no knowledge of the previous model… Read More
Not a much as you might think.
There is a cable which runs from your front axle to the odometer/speedometer. Inside this cable is a gear box. As the front axle spin it transfers how fast your axle is spinning to your speedometer. This also spins your odometer. Something is either worn out in the cable, gearbox, or one of the ends of the cable has become disconnected. It's a very inexpensive fix.
Most transit and motor coaches are goverened for 72 MPH. Believe me, that's fast enough in a rolling behemoth that weighs in at around 36,000 pounds and takes three football field lengths to stop. Without a speed limiter obviously the vehicle will go much faster. A bus/coach has essentially a heavy truck engine mounted in a much lighter body with a much higher geared final drive because its not pulling the weight that the truck… Read More
NOT RELIABLE AT ALL! And only a millionaire could afford to fix it when it breaks down every week. I own one, drove it right out the doors of Valley Imports when I bought it. Dont bother buying one, waste of time, waste of money. PERIOD
To the left and right of your factory radio are narrow vertical slots. Volkswagen, as well as a local car audio shop, can provide you with keys that slide into these slots to hook onto the stereo and pull it out. If you are the DIY type and want to fashion your own, the hooking point is in the lower portion of these slots. Design your stereo removal key with the "hook" facing down to… Read More
You rock the engine forward to gain access to the rear plugs.
I do not recomend using biodiesel. If there is any thing in your fuel tank the bio diesel will break it loose and stop up the fuel filter and anything else it gets into. Plus it's higher than regular diesel fuel. I tried using it and had problems with it. ------------------------------------------------------- Buried deep on VW's web site is a claim that running B5 biodiesiel is supported and will not void the warrenty. Due to a… Read More
The process is time consuming... The intake manifold has to be taken off and the gaskets replaced due to the spark plugs being under the manifold. It would be best to take it to your dealer.

Pop open your hood and look where the transaxle is located. Assuming you have a front wheel drive vehicle, there should be a manual transaxle dipstick located somewhere on your transmission. This dipstick is most likely the filler cap where new gear oil goes. However, most transaxles are semi-buried beneath the top of the engine. You won't have to take anything off to get to it I believe, but the transaxle is located towards the… Read More

I took to the dealer many times, they changed everything, only when they changed the water pump did… Read More
I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel pump, attached a two-foot section of fuel host to the fuel line, then blew compressed air through the line until I could hear bubbles coming from the fuel tank. Then I draped the hose over the back bumper, and let the dirty fuel drain through the system into a spare gas tank. When clear gas was coming out, I reconnected the fuel pump, changed the fuel filter… Read More
Take off the panel under your dash on drivers side. You will need a star head tool to take off the panel. Behind the brake pedal you will see something that looks kind of like a 35mm film can. It will have a plug in on the side facing the seat. Unplug it and the turn the switch one way or the other. Pull it out, replace it and plug it back up. You can… Read More
Under the car. Look at your brake pedal. There's a silver rod on a clevis coming out the back side of the brake pedal. It goes into a rubber boot that's sticking through the firewall. On the other side of the firewall is the master cylinder. The bolts you've got to remove to get the master cylinder out are above and to the right, and below and to the left, of the rubber boot. Oh… Read More

This is most likely an electrical issue, and may have nothing to do with fuses. If the headlight switch has failed, both headlights will be inoperative. On many cars, there are separate fuses for right and left headlights, so both of them failing at the same time is unlikely. Your best bet would probably be to take the vehicle to an automotive electrical specialty shop, and have them check it out. They will usually be… Read More
Hi, My hubby and I own a 99 Hyundai accent which develoved a leak with the water pooling in the back seat and on the floor in the back.

The starter, upon activation, has a gear that is forced onto the engine's flywheel's gear to turn the motor over. Upon engine start or release of the start voltage the starter gear disengages.
on the 3.1, it is under power steering pump. remove pump but not the hoses, set aside. sensor only has 1 bolt to hold it in. remove bolt then pull it straight up and out.
Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire and put to the side, remove the brake shoe/caliper, and remove and throw away the old brake pad. Put in a new brake pad, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire, and lower the vehicle to the ground.
normally blue is worn rings,and black is unburned fuel.

tested blower,ok. then tested incoming voltage to blower and found to be zero. the final step was to replace the blower switch. To replace that switch, the middle part of the dashboard, including the radio had to be removed. The ac and heater come in one piece. It worked fine then. I think, there is a chance that the switch could be just cleaned up and it would work, again I think.
Check bulbs Replace flasher
Aside from small cuts to your tread rubber and possibly a tread penetration,the biggest problem is stone retention.If your tires retain a lot of stone what can happen is that eventually they will be pounded through the tread rubber and into the steel belts which will allow moisture and oxidization to spread along the belts.
under the dash but its not the obd2
look for the hose on top of the motor
Unfortunately the code can not be retrieved from a working radio. If you can not find the code you have to get the serial number of the radio and call the dealer for the code.

Some of the front wheel drive 3.8 liters had a balance shaft in them. Other than that, I think they are the same. One way to find out, if there is a particular part that you are trying to swap, is call the dealer parts dept and give them the year and model of both engines, and see if the part number is the same for the part(s) you want to swap.
Depends on what vehicle and where on the engine it is located. If you're lucky the alternater (like most vehicles)will be on the front of the engine. You have to loosen the belt that travels around the alternator by finding the idler pully or tension pully and loosening it. Once that is done you just disconnect the battery lead to the old alternator, unbolt the mount bolts and remove it. do the reverse to put… Read More

The Jetta engine should fit Answer Any four-cylinder watercooled VW engine will FIT in the car; every watercooled inline-4 Volkswagen engine has the same bellhousing pattern and mounting bolt hole locations. The question is, which engines will work? And really, because of all the electronics in your car I wouldn't guarantee anything but another 1.8 Turbo would work.
if is the v6 motor you just pull the plug wires off then use a spark plug socket to remove them all, but there is one that you are going to need to use a break over bar to get to one of them. if you don't have any of these tool they are all at your local parts store.

Once removed slide the whole light unit sideways, away from the center line of… Read More
You need to check the oners manual to be sure, but I think that since you have a V-tech engine they don't need to be changed. This is what i saw on the dealers maintenance schedule. Actually, the plugs should be replaced at 105,000 miles according to the owner's manual and the dealer. 7/2009 : it took me around 1 hour to change all 6 plugs - it's not that bad.
