2006 Volkswagen Beetle Problems

Power Windows Fail More Often Than Manually Operated Window Cranks

One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

Odor from HVAC vents

A musty odor may be noted from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system after sitting for two hours or more due to condensation in the heater case. Our technicians tell us that a cleaner is available for the heater case and the drain system should be checked for debris.

Check Engine Light Due to Ignition Component/Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Failure

Due to an ignition component and/or engine coolant temperature sensor failure, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. Replacement of the failed component will be necessary to correct this concern.
