To add water to the radiator on a new beetle, first remove the lower radiator hose. Then add water to the coolant reservoir.
It is in front of the two fans at the front of the engine.
show me where to add power sterring fluid to my 1999 beetle
There are a lot of beetle species that call New Mexico there home. Some species include: Tiger Beetle, Ground Beetle, Hister Beetle, and Water Scavenger Beetle.
The old beetle could float but the new ones will not.
If it is a new beetle you use G12 mixed half and half with distilled water.
Remove The Radiator And Take It To a Good Radiator Shop. Most Likely Yours Can Be Cleaned And Repaired. When You Reinstall It, Add New Antifreeze Plus Water Pump Lubricant. This Will Help Stop Corrosion. Good Luck
A car can overheat for several reasons. You may need to replace your water pump. You may have a leak in the radiator itself. You may need to add more 50/50 mix of radiator fluid and water to your car. You could also have leaks or holes in the radiator hoses. You may also need a new cooling fan for the radiator.
The 2003 VW Beetles did not use a radiator in their cars. Instead they had air cooled rear engine. Radiators were not used until 2004.
Drain the water from the radiator. Remove the water hoses. Remove the retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new radiator.
Flush and clean your heater radiator wich is located inside the car. No that is incorrect. All you have to do is add antifreeze to your reservoir keep adding it till you get heat. You may have to let your car sit awhile on the on position. I know this is your problem because it works in the warmer weather. Unless your thermostat is stuck and the heater was just blowing air off your motor but I doubt that. Make sure you add enough antifreeze though. You never add when your vehicle is hot and if you add in radiator make sure car is on. If you have to much water in it to add antifreeze there is a screw under radiator to release water from radiator. GOODLUCK
Well you dont want to add water you want to add a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze. First fill the radiator to the top with this mixture then with the radiator cap off the radiator start the engine and let it warm up (do not rev the engine) as the engine warms up the level of radiator fluid will get lower keep on adding until it is at the top and you can see the fluid flowing. Put the radiator cap back on and fill up the coolant reservoir with fluid then go take it for a 10 minute drive. Bring the vehicle back let the engine sit until it is cold. check the level of the reservoir if it is low add until full and then you are finished!!
Disconnect the hoses connected to the radiator and drain the system. (The water will come out by itself :) ) Then you just take the old radiator out and put the new one in. Connect the hoses, fill the system up with water (you might want to add some antifreeze) and don't forget to air the system. There is a little screw on the radiator that you have to loosen, and when water is coming out from the screw, you tighten it again. Good luck!
