    Right, When I bought my bug, it ran fine until one day I tried to start it to be greeted by a clunk and nothing (typical beetle issue), but in my naivety at the time (almost 18 months ago), I simply replaced the starter as the old one was old, crusty and pretty nasty anyway. This worked...

    Ive known for a while my bug starter was sticking to the flywheel and I have learnt to expect to rock car in gear before setting off, if the lights are on and there's no one home kind of thing..but other day that didnt even work...so I went to rear of engine and turned pulley clockwise, then...

    Hi Guys, having an issue with my late bay. 1641 TP. I have a had it for 3 years, occasionally the starter would not start when I turned the key, but second attempt it would always work. Lately its started happening more often. I would have to turn the key two or three times before the starter...

    Hi chaps, Nice weather out isn't it? Just a quick one. Can't start the bus. Was running fine other than a funky left indicator situation yesterday, was winking a twice the normal speed. Had a poke about in the back today, tried to fix that, checked my back lights and arts to no avail. Trouble is...

    Hi, the video shows you how to diagnose and how to replace the ignition starter switch at a Passat 35i. For this repair the steering wheel, the lock and the reduction sleeve on the steering column has to be removed. Especially pulling the reduction sleeve might be a problem. The video gives you...

    Morning!! Sat at work and my parts disc is at home - doh!! Can anyone advise the correct part number for the Starter Motor (or better still the solenoid) for a Mexican 1600i Beetle? I'd like to start my enquirires but if all else fails I'll wait until I get home tonight to look at my disc...

    Howdy. I'm looking for a T25 solenoid switch for the starter motor of my van. The connections rusted shut on my old one hence it disintegrated when I tried to undo them for cleaning! I've been quoted £45 so far from a local car parts store, but thought that sounded a bit steep for just the...

    Evening techy peeps. :) Problem I have at the moment is that my starter motor appears to be sticking. It's always done it on and off for years. Absolutely fine one minute and then won't crank the next. When I turn the key to second position I just get dimmer dash lights. Girlfriend wasn't very...

    Hi Guys got a 1641 Type 2 it was starting to play up (running baddly spluttering etc) after I put half a tank of petrol in. thought it might be contaminated fuel so have drained tank and stuck new in. whilst looking to rain the tank I noticed that the carb (Solex Pict 34) was leaking so I...

    I've got a stock 1600tp engine, which used to run beautifully, I've just added some dellorto 36DRLA's which (when the engine runs) are excellent. However, they dont like starting when cold, I replaced the starter bush on tuesday and now it must have gone again cos even with a full battery the...

    Hi everyone I've been having problems with my beetle recently when starting it. earlier this year I would turn the key and nothing would happen, but if you wiggled the thick wire that attaches to the ignition it would start. So I had this bit replaced, and all was well for a while. Now - it is...

    My 6v solenoid on my 6v starter (running on a 12v system but with a 6v flywheel) is sticking badly and needs replacing. I would like to avoid replacing the whole starter at this time as I will be clearancing the gearbox for a 12v starter in the future and will replace the whole starter then...
  17. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    I've just removed what I believe to be the original 6v starter motor from my bug (now has a 12v conversion) as the solenoid kept sticking "On" - after a bit of cleaning, greasing and wiggling it now appears to work fine (I tested it using a fully charged battery out of the car) but it seems to...

    1300 beetle engine: tried to start her today and there were just a couple of slow turns before the whole electrics went dead. Looked at the battery which was making fizzing noises even with everything turned off at the key. Luckily I've got an isolator fitted, which went zap as I unscrewed it...

    How can I test a Beetle Starter when not fitted to the car. Have a spare I want to check :confused: thanks

    Just fitted a new engine and since fitting (1641 with twin webber 40s as opposed to bog standard 1300 Twin port) the starter appears to struggle (right flywheel and clutch is fitted). Assuming the battery was flat we jumped it off of a mates T4 and it span over quicker but didn't fire (assume...
