Left rear tail light does not work

I drive a 2001 VW Golf GTI. Ok I got pulled over for my left rear running light being out... I changed it and the new bulb didn't work. I tried another... Nothing. I checked the fuse and it's fine. All of the other lights work, including the right running light. Checked the power to the bulb socket and there is none. Any ideas?

Have you had any work done on it sounds like wire may have been cut check for power at fuse and if you can get to wires close to fuse check there and if you can get to wires probe right before the bulb socket cause the socket may be the culprit .

How to replace tail light on VW golf mk5 estate


Although you posted this question under a 03 VW Golf and you have a MKV. The best I can do is a MKIV set up. From the rear trunk there are access ports just for this job. The right port will be just above the light housing you will find a wire harness for the right assembly. Follow the harness and it will lead you to the assembly. Once located you can squeeze the two tabs and pull the circuit board where the bulbs are installed. Push on the bulb and twist anti-clockwise then pull out of the socket.

The left should be the same procedure and it is located behind your audio components.

NOTE: It's a good idea to wipe your hand and the glass bulb, leaving oily residue will cause early bulb failure once in operation.

How do you take tail light lens off of 2001 golf?


there are 3 or 4 nuts inside the boot - one in each corner - then you pull the light towards the side of the car - so if you are standing behind the car then push the light towards the left if its the left light then pull back out being very carefull not to crack it, if you search on how to remove the rear bumper then it should be in that guide as the rear bumper nuts are under the light clusters.
