Volkswagen Beetle Problems
One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.
One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.

Before replacing the leaking tube, it had issues like jacking and hard start which seems not to be there now but the error is very persistent. Any advice?
Volkswagen Beetle Recalls
A sealing cap at the fuel rail may fail, allowing fuel to leak into the engine compartment, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel rail on affected vehicles to correct this concern.
If a rear suspension trailing arm becomes bent, its durability may be compromised and it could break unexpectedly. If this were to occur vehicle control would be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. When parts become available, dealers will install a sheet metal inlay on each of the rear axle trailing arms to prevent sudden loss of vehicle control should a rear trailing arm suddenly break.
When driving over a rough road or striking a pothole the sunroof glass can break. This would be a distraction to the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replaced the sunroof in affected vehicles to correct this concern.
