    Air condition too cold to the point of no air flow

    01 Beetle A/C will not take freon

    Update Fans: I followed DanG144 instructions and discovered both fans did not not work on low speed and did have 12V to them. The High speed works fine. I popped the back covers off both fan motors and found that the contact brushes are stuck on both fans but the small fan had alot of debris. I...

    01 Beetle A/C will not take freon

    I followed the showthread that d2305 posted and found that both fans did not come on but compressor is turning which obviously caused overheating the system, then no A/C. First I need to fix the fan problem then find out what damages are to the system then go from there. Lessons learned...

    01 Beetle A/C will not take freon

    Thanks for the replies, I'm good with a wrench and can build an engine but I really don't know this A/C stuff. I don't have a Bentley manual, its 105 deg. here in TX and wanting to jump right in to it. There was no warning, the A/C worked great then stopped. I may be wishful thinking and...

    01 Beetle A/C will not take freon

    01 NB A/C just quit working after setting a few days. While eng. running, A/C on max, I tried to put a can of freon 134A in the small port (low side) in front of the IP. I first noticed that it was hard to connect and the guage needle pegged as if was connected on the high side. There are not...

    Glow plug light on for 1 sec. and starter ?

    Thanks for the replies, sounds like two less things I have to worry about. The battery I bought is the Everstart Max (Wal-Marts best) 700 ccv. I have $100.00 invested in the bat. but will get a VW battery the next time. Leesons learned- should have asked before.

    Glow plug light on for 1 sec. and starter ?

    I have 01 NB 5sp. 125K miles and I'm 3 weeks new to TDI. Glow plug light on for split second but it starts up fine and maybe because i'm in TX. The 4 GPs only have about 20K miles. Is there away to check or don't worry about it? Also the Battery seemed week in the morning so I installed new one...

    Slight power loss in 3rd....

    I have an 01 NB 5sp. 126K doing the exact same thing in 3rd gear only in a simi-hard acceleration. Not the clutch due to RPM is not rising faster than speed and not lag due to it starts to slow about 2500 -3500 RPM. If it was the MAF would it happen in all the other gears? I did the AGR/intake...
