If both my regular headlight bulb and high beam head light bulb on a 2009 VW Jetta are both burned out and I only replace the regular bulb and not the high beam, should the regular highlight bulb stil


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.
