"Installation was a breeze. Reading the reviews I was a little concerned about what I might be buying but this converter assembly is a perfect fit for my BEV engine. Including the gasket at the exhaust manifold mating surface adds a nice touch to the package. Construction seems solid. The two support prongs just below the flex pipe are a little crude but they fit properly into their mount and they perform the job they are designed to accomplish. There are no big hassles here. This is a true direct fit replacement." posted by: Nick on April 22, 2013

"Good quality converter similar to original equipment part. But the clamps did not fit i had to weld the old part into the new one. I appreciate the fact that the item was not immediately returned after a first failed attempted delivery." posted by: on January 16, 2013 view all 3 reviews

"This is a replacement of an Eastman Cat. which became defective after 6 months. The Eastman came with a gasket, so it was an easy install. Since this did not come with one.

This one does have an heat shield, were as the Eastman did not." posted by: pylotman@yahoo.com on November 10, 2009 view all 2 reviews

The device greatly reduces bad elements to make your bug very environmentally friendly. This also results to an improvement in fuel economy, better emission testing results, and an increase in the car's power. If your Volkswagen Beetle happen to have a bad catalytic converter, legal requirements would prohibit you from driving your car. Add this to the fact that your car is slowly killing the environment in the process because of its dirty exhaust. Make sure you, the law, and the environment is happy with your car by having a working Volkswagen Beetle catalytic converter.

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.
