Need to change a tail light bulb left sideon a 2000 vw bettle


Unscrew the knob behined the light in the Boot / Trunk and the use a small screwdriver on the OUTSIDE of the light on the right handside as you look at the light in the middle on the outside. You will feel a little spring clip and as you push gently the light will pullout forward.

I cant get the tail light out to change the bulb


No tools needed.

Beetles: Round plug inside trunk pops out.
Beetle Convts: Grille-looking rectangular panel pops out.

Reach in and you'll feel a large finger-grip able nut, back it off (DON'T DROP
IT) and place it somewhere retrievable. Take a small-flat-bladed screwdriver and wrap it in cloth so you don't scratch the paint. Poke said protected blade between the inside body joint and the tail light, gently pry tail light out. Remove offending bulb, replace with new. Installation is, as they say, the reverse of removal.

How do I replace right tail light bulb on VW Beetle?


The entire tail light assembly pulls out from the fender well. You can access the socket for the tail light on the inside of the trunk, but in order to change the bulbs you will need to pull the tail light assembly out from the socket. Check inside to see if there are any retaining straps, otherwise use your fingers to get under the outer edge of the tail light assembly and gentlu pull it out. Don't pull too far because the wires will still be connected between the tail light assembly and the socket. The bulbs are then easily accessible and can be changed. Reverse the procedure to re-install.

Tail light in a volkswagon beetle?


There are two access panels on either side of your trunk. You need to remove the panel and inside you will find a small plastic 3 point finger nut that you will have to loosen to allow the light assembly to be removed - be careful not too loose the plastic nut!. You can then replace the bulb(s) you need.
