Are you sure it's just a headlight? If it is, you need to take off the rubber cap that's behind the headlight. You can access this from under the hood. Once the thick black rubber cap is pulled off, you'll have access to the back of the light, you need to push it down and out to get it loose. Don't pull too hard as it's wired in to the headlight harness so it's only got a few inches of slack. Once it's out, pull out the light and put the new one in. Try your highbeam first, if that works, then don't bother changing the light. I thought my headlight was out, went through the trouble of changing it, and turns out the bulb was fine. I'm taking it to the shop tomorrow, but I think it may be the daytime running module has burnt out. So let me know what you do.

Comes on but no sound


Also If you had a flat battery the cat might need to be recoded for whichever speaker system and head unit are installed. Btw this is vw stock audio system right. If not you might be missing required wiring harness to make it compatible or an uadaptor to ensure a 3rd party head unit is compatible. Pictures of the head unit and the fuse boxes would help but also a video of what happens when you Try to use the functions so we can see exactly what happens. Also investing in a fuse tester would be well worth it and I can find the fuse assignments for your car but I need the car year the model the engine size and if it's 4 motion or not. Also check the date manufacture for your car in the front section of the instruction booklet. Otherwise giving your Vin can help me search through vw Elsa win program and also I have an account at Mitchell diy with the electrical guides and can post the appropriate fuse and wiring diagrams for your car and the wiring from head unit along with which fuses or relays are related.

2006 VW PASSAT. TRYING TO CHANGE OIL CAN'T FIND FILTER AND CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE OVERHEAD ENGINE COVER


The engine cover just pulls off the clips so no problem their the oil filter is inside a plastic housing at the front of the engine rightish side and it has a 32mm or 28 mm head on the top of the plastic housing as its a cartridge type oil filter not a screw on type that you are accustomed too.
