Need to change right tail light, how?

Open hatch, on inside there will be two plastic clips that go into the side of the tail light, remove the center of the plastic clips, they will pop out, remove the rest of the remaining clip, once you have the plastic clips out, tail light will come off, no screw's holding tail light, just those two plastic clips.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta

I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

Need to change the brake light bulb. Behind the velcro door, where are the 2 places to pinch to pull the bulb holder?

With the velcro door open, you now have access to the tray that holds all of the tail light bulbs. There are two tabs on each side of the tray that secure it to the tail light. Carefully reach inside of the tail light and lightly squeeze on the outside of each tab, releasing the tray from the tail light. See pics.

Thanks for using Fixya and please do rate this answer.

Tabs highlighted in red.

Did you try your local parts store, pep boys, auto zone, ebay? Normally part stores can order specialty items like euro tail light for your car and other performance items.
