      You might want to post in the Beetle section here. Lots of owners who may be able to help you out. I wouldn't give up just yet. Sounds like your dealer is working to help you out as best as they can....

      Could also just be the battery, especially since a jump start works. I'd check your battery voltage and see what it looks like. I had a battery die - no noises from the car, but other lights worked...

      I have a set on my 20th (not my choice...came with the car...which surprised the heck out of my mechanic when they went to change the boots recently). It rides fine. But I have heard of many cases of...

      Curtain or side? I know my husband's '01 Jetta doesn't have curtain airbags. I think they started in '02, but I could be wrong.

      Unless you've just replaced the green top, its possible that its bad. Yes, the green tops fail. Mine failed in a shorter amount of time than the "crappy" sensor that the car came with.

      Probably...

      I have it and I really like it. I would recommend you have at least an upgraded downpipe and DV before you get it though. I both of those and works like a dream. Still drives great around town, but...

      5k or once a year, whichever comes first. Yes, time tends to factor in more for me...I did my last oil change in April and I just hit 2800 miles since I changed it last.

      I got my husband one of these: https://www.wheelskins.com/

      Since its a cover, it does add some bulk to the wheel, but not too much. Since you sew it on the wheel, it stays in place really well and...

      Diesels are rattly by nature and you'll hear and feel it for sure. But its all subjective so its hard for any of us to say if its normal or not. A TDI isn't fast by any means. They have 90hp, so its...

      Serp or timing belt? There isn't a cover for the serp belt, just the timing belt. Though there is an upper and lower timing cover.

      Get that belt changed ASAP!! The longest interval for a belt kit that they sell is 100k. Yes, age is very important, but its just as important as mileage, its just in a whichever comes first...

      Unless its under 40 degrees, the GPs aren't even used. But if you have one that doesn't work and it gets cold where you are, you will have some struggles getting the car started in the winter. If you...

      For the 2.0, that sounds about right. I know I was running 3k at 60mph in my 2.0 with a manual trans. These 2.0s just run higher revs.

      The glow plug harness may have some cracks in it. Very prone to failure but not a hard thing to replace.

      In the last year or so, I've developed a periodic intolerance to alcohol :banghead: Half a beer, and I'm nauseous like I've been drinking liquor all night or something. I've tried to make sure it...

      Definitely get that belt replaced ASAP. That is critical on a TDI. High compression and a bad belt spells big trouble. Make sure you follow the procedure and get the proper tools for the job...

      TDIs are different from gassers in many ways. You need to make sure you don't put gasoline in it at all - that will completely destroy the fuel pump. Older TDIs (like early 2000's cars), you could...

      You'll want the mk6 forum. Or the diesel tech section. Or TDIClub. Or all of the above really. Lots of info out there on them.

      Check the mk1 forum. I know somewhere there is information on how to tell the difference between all the mk1 diesel engines (1.5, 1.6 with 11mm head bolts, 1.6 with 12mm head bolts). Engine code,...
