My Beetle is 2001. The solenoid has gone, and after ages the mechanic called to say he couldn't source the part for less than $1100 as they don't make it anymore. Given the blue book value of the car it might be best to just drive her till she dies. He advised against a used part as the same thing could happen, but there is an auto-wreckers in town that charges next to nothing if you remove the parts yourself. Is there another part that would do? Like maybe from a jetta or something? Any advice is appreciated thank you!
