    The headlamp for the 1991 Volkswagen Jetta is the complete headlight assembly(passenger side). A stone had pierced the existing lamp, leaving a hole in the glass, through which water entered. the bulb still works. In order to replace the headlamp, I need to get access to the scews(bolts) which keep the headlamp in place. In order to get at those screws (bolts), I need to take off the grill, but can't see any easy method to remove it. Do you know how to remove the grill?

I have a 2003 volkswagen jetta. i need to remove the glass on the front drivers side and front passenger side doors and replace it with new glass.after i remove the door panel how do i do this?


The panels have 3 t20 torx screws on the bottom and one philips head near the mirror. Under pull handles there are 3 philips on the drivers and 2 philips on the passengers sides. Pull the panels from the bottom and lift the panels up. There are 2 black rubber plugs in each door, pop each plug out and the glass is held in place to the clips on each side with either a 10 mm bolt or t30 torx bolt. Move the glass to the point where you can see the bolts, loosen, but don't remove the bolts. Once loose, you can pull the glass loose. Once loose, lower the window a bit, angle the rear of the glass up and pull it out. The glass may be epoxied in place, as VW had a problem with windows coming loose. If so, try to pop the rubber in the clamp loose (above the bolts you see through the holes) and reinstall it with the window removed.

If the door panel has never been removed then it could possibly be a bad speaker.

Being a 99 model it could also have a plastic liner under neath the door panel that has dry rotted and needs to be removed.

I'd place my wager on the speaker though.

If the panel has been removed check to make sure that you don't have any broken clips that attatch your door panel to the door.
