Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
How do you remove the driver side headlight to replace bulb on a 2000 beetle?
On the side of the headlight assembly there is a lever sticking out with a checkered section just above it you have to push the checkered part (it's the release for the mechanism) then lift it up and slide it forward, but be ready to catch it when it slides out. Next remove the connectors on the back and pull it all the way out. I usually set it on a towel or something so it wont roll around while working on it. Getting it back in is trickier though because you have to line the tracks up perfectly when you slide it in otherwise it'll bind up on you. If you search the DIY on vwvortex there's a pile of good info to make your life easier.

You should be able to remove the headlight by opening the hood and you should see two buckle type latches on the side and by releasing these it will allow headlight to come out. You might have to twist headlight a little to allow this to happen. I hope this helps.
