What kind of replacement headlight bulb do I need to buy for my 2004 Volkswagen Jetta? I cannot find it anywhere in my owner's manual. I just need to know the brand and number so that I can buy it and replace it.

no --there are two separate light power systems for the bulbs but a shared earth wire. Bulbs blow from power fluctuations that occur from loose earth wires, dirty earth points so check the way the bulbs are put back in and ensure that they are tight.
If it's just a bulb replacement open the hood and with one hand push in on the headlight, with the other hand inside, pull up on the white plastic retaining clip. This will release the bulb. Pull it out forward, then replace with new bulb (be careful not to touch the new bulb, oil from the hands can cause bulb to burst.)
If you need to replace the whole headlight assembly I would try buying used for a better price.
on the back of the headlight assembly, you will see a cover that is held down by two clamps. Flip the clamps to the side and remove the cover. Then you can disconnect the wiring from the bulb and then twist the retaining rain counter clockwise to remove the bulb
The problem is almost certainly only a bad connection at the back of
the headlight unit. Have the 3 pin plug and terminals replaced...fit a
new bulb, and check the earth connection and all should be well.
for the most part you open the hood and get your hands behind the headlight assembly and turn the socket and pull the headlight bulb out if you have a autozone near you and you get the blub from them they will help you with installing it try this website www.autozone.com
