    2001 Bug: passenger side window switch only on direction-down.

    2001 Bug: passenger side window switch only one direction-down. So I just reaquired a 2001 bug from my daughter. I’ve fixed a number of small issues but one has me stumped.

    Broken axle stud. Anyone else ever had this happen?

    2 years ago, I had to repair an oil leak on the 02M input shaft in my 01 bug. Since then I have put 20K miles on the car and all was great. Then yesterday as I was pulling out of the fuel station I heard a big "POP" and looked to see a hub cap lying there. I did a u-turn back into the parking...

    2002 Jetta wagon vs 2010 Jetta SW

    Have the opportunity to pick up a Jetta Sport Wagon 2010 fully loaded with navigation and 6 speed manual trans, new tires, for 15 K with 36k miles (I have the full history of this car). Wonder if it is worth it to replace my 2002 Jetta wagon GLS with 6 speed manual (former auto), 142k miles...

    Mahle VNT15. Who has experience with these?

    Was browsing around the various TDI vendor websites and found a Mahle VNT15 made in Canada at idparts. What is the deal with these? Certainly the price is right or is this a "get what you pay for?" Of course I am sure idparts is not going to sell junk.

    2003 NB TDI hesitation and bucking at 2000-3200 rpm

    This is a 2003 NB TDI that started out as an automatic. At 75K miles, the trans began to give issues so I replaced it with a six speed manual. At the same time I replaced the fuel filter, air filter, vacuum hoses, removed the snow screen, installed titan 520 nozzles and a malone stage 2.0 dyn...

    Batteries: Bugs and other MKIVs

    Had to buy a new battery today for the Jetta wagon. The stock battery listed for the 2002 Jetta is a group 94R VW part number 000 915 105 AG. This has been super ceded to a 000 915 105 DH. This is an 80Ah battery. The local dealer sold it to me for $153 out the door. Same price as the local...

    CV joint? Clicking while turning sharply right while starting to accelerate.

    As the title says, When I start from a stop and turn sharply right, I get a clicking noise. Everything I have read seems to point to the passenger side CV joint. The axles are ryanp retreads for the 6 speed I just installed. Wheel bearings are good and suspension is all tight. Just want to...

    Swapping ECU from a 2003 bug or 2002 jetta into a late 2001 bug TDI

    I might have to replace the ECU in my 2001 bug (038906012CR). Hopefully Malone can recover it. Was wondering what my options were and what I would have to do in terms of programming? My 02 jetta is a EDC15VM+ with part number 038906012FD and my 03 bug is a EDC15VM+ with part number 038906012GQ...

    Tuning a 2001 TDI new beetle and associated headache.

    I have tuned my 2001 bug before about a year ago without issue. Just tuned my 2003 also without issue. However, yesterday I decided that I needed to back off on the fueling with my 2001 since WOT would yield way too much smoke. I even had my IQ set at almost 8. So I go and program the...

    10mm vs 11mm pump.

    At what point in HP and mods would one need to consider going to 11mm pump? My bug is running 10mm pump with pp764 nozzles and stage 2 Malone. I have another bug just swapped to manual from auto with 11mm pump that will get stage 2 Malone and Titan 520. All stock turbos. Is there any gain in...

    01M with low miles.

    I have an 03bug with the 01M with 86k miles. The trans was serviced at 66k miles with new filter and OEM VW fluids and shifts perfectly. I am going to swap in a manual only because no member of my family likes to drive a car with an automatic. It will have all the parts including axles, a new...

    Malone and immobilizer

    I started to have intermittent issues with the immobilizer in my 2002 bug. Rather then try and trouble shoot the problem, etc, etc., I elected to enlist Mark Malone to simply disable the issue altogether. I shipped him the ECU on a Wednesday and had it back in the car by Friday. Now that is...

    2004 New Beetle radio and sunroof issue.

    A friend of mine bought a 2004 bug BEW 5 speed. It is in great shape. Only problem is that the A/C stank! My buddy put a few drops of Clorox in each A/C vent (not a smart move) and now his monsoon radio/cd and his sun roof quit working. I pulled his radio and can find nothing wrong on a visual...
