FIRST!! Make sure you use an alternate power source before ever disconnecting the battery on any VW that has a built in security system. If you don't you will experience lots of grief that is avoidable.
did learned the hard way and it is not worth it, especially for those people that did not take care in saving their VW's owners manual that has a section about how to reset the security code on the Radio. If you get stuck in this situation you have two options, you can either get the correct tools and pull the radio (the codes are on the top of the unit) or make a trip to the dealer so they can look it up for you based on the VIN for a fee.
HOW TO START OUT RIGHT - Get a alternate power source unit from the dealer (I think Harbor Freight has them too) or make your own using a 9 volt battery or any battery close to 12 volts. Get yourself a cigarette power adapter from radio shack or harbor freight and make two leads off of it with alligator clips on the end following the color codes on the plug. . Red for Positive and Black for negative. Then plug the cigarette adapter into the orifice in your console marked POWER Outlet and connect the clips to the correct sides of your 9 volt battery (or other). Now you can remove the battery without loosing everything. Some forums also say that this will also cause problems with the programming for your injection if an alternate power source is not used. I did not notice a difference in power, however I did get a "running lean" code right after my mishap that did not fire off an idiot light but I truly believe if I had not reset mine I would have caused engine damage resulting from scoring due to the lean condition.
Note - Make sure not to let the positive battery cable touch the inner fender or core support. This grounding will ruin your attempt to do it right. Simply slide an old glove over the positive cable while transfering batteries so it's isolated.

If you are sure you have a key off battery drain, what you need to do is connect an ammeter to the negative side of the battery(disconnect the negative battery cable and connect one side of the ammeter to the battery terminal and one side to the and one side to the battery cable) note the reading and start pulling fuses one at a time making sure to put them back in their proper slot when the reading an the ammeter goes down to normal the short will be on the circuit of the fuse you have pulled if any part of these instructions is too difficult have the problem checked by a dealer

On the 2007 vw beetle there is an unlock screw that you have to turn a quarter of a turn to unlock the light assembly by using a 5 mm. socket.You also have to push down on the silver release bar and pull the light housing out at the same time.The bar is 3 in. away from the unlock screw,towards the fire wall.
