"Got this to solve CEL trouble on 2000 VW new beetle Weld it in works great..car seems to Mage more power and CEL has been off for few weeks..lets hope it stays that way...and best price I cold find and was shipped fast." posted by: 2000nb on May 30, 2013

"I actually got what I thought I was ordering, hard to tell from on-line picture; it is a universal unit after all. I went to my local Meineke shop, the mechanic had the old catalytic converter out in 5 minutes and after a little effort on his part to make a connector flange he had the new one installed and welded in place in about 30 minutes. there was a few days of bad smells as new converter heated and cooled but now all seems okay. $111 for new converter, $90 install, saved about $800 from what VW service dept wanted to replace it! so far I'm a happy guy." posted by: on December 11, 2009 view all 2 reviews

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • Was there a recall done regarding Volkswagen Beetle catalytic converters?
    Answer: Around 2007, Volkswagen sent out a memo regarding the faulty catalytic converters of certain Beetle model. Some models included were the 2001-2002 New Beetle 2.0L (AVH and AZG) and both the 2003 New Beetle Convertible 2.0L (AVH and BDC). Their response to the problematic converters was more of an extended warranty rather than a total vehicle recall. The car's bad converter can be serviced if it's 10 years old or has traveled 100,000 miles. Just bring the Beetle, along with the necessary documents, to a Volkswagen dealer and they'll diagnose the problem for at once.
  • What does the check engine code P0420 mean?
    Answer: If the Volkswagen Beetle was scanned and resulted to a reading of code P0420, this is usually a sign of a broken catalytic converter, bad fuel to air ratio, air leak, or a busted oxygen sensor. Whatever reason may be, the code tells that the car has a significant problem that must be addressed at once.
  • What is a good way to tell if the Volkswagen Beetle's catalytic converter has a problem?
    Answer: Listen for shaking and rattling noise that seems to come from the catalytic converter. Any unusual noise from the exhaust system is not a good sign. That is the sound of the internal parts and pieces of the converter rumbling around. Listen for the shakes when the car is idling or when the car is moving at a slow pace. Another way of telling if the catalytic converter's busted is through the scent of the exhaust. If there seems to be fumes that smell bad - like the kind of smell from rotten eggs - that's one big giveaway as well. Replace the converter at once to avoid further problems. Lastly, observe the car's fuel mileage. A significant drop in efficiency is also a sign of a broken catalytic converter.
