What could need repair in a 2002 VW Beetle if it sounds like it is skidding when you step on the brakes and anti lock brake system fires?

Start with pulling all four wheels and inspecting the brakes.

it sounds like you should try and get the book if you want to learn it yourself in the long run its fun to repair your own car unless you don't have time you should get someone to repair that for you

It is likely not the brakes. It sounds more like underinflated/bad tires. It could also be a bad wheel bearing. If it turns out to be the brakes, you would repair it by replacing the pads and having the rotors turned by a machine shop.

yes. "E" in "beetle" sounds like its name, therefore is long.

Sounds like the brakes are shot! At this point I wouldn't want you to drive any further than your closest repair garage.

It depends on the location what type of beetle it maybe. The description given sounds like a crop beetle.

It sounds like there is a problem with the proportioning valve. I highly advise you to seek professional help with this repair. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be corrected ASAP.

It's hard to diagnose without hearing the noise, but if you're sure that it is not the brakes, it could be dirt/sand/rock in the brakes. If you're hearing the sound all the time (even when not applying the brakes), it could be wheel bearings.

Sounds like you need to replace your brakes very soon. You may need to replace hubs as well.

If the stripes run from side to side rather than head to tail and it has very long antennae, it sounds like an alder beetle.

Sounds like the pads are shot. Take a wheel off and check.
