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.

SOURCE: 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.

Is replacing switch to dome light in 2001 VW golf a do-it-yourself job?


If you are a short tempered fumble fingered f**k then this is beyond you. Otherwise just look in your owner's manual, generally just a GENTLE squeeze on the lens, to clear a plastic tang, allows the cover to be taken off and the bulb just unscrews or unplugs.

Hoe do you change a brake light on a 2001 volkswagen beetle?


IT'S A BIT MORE COMPLICATED THAN ABOVE.
TO REMOVE BRAKE LIGHT HOUSING YOU HAVE TO GO INTO THE TRUNK AND REMOVE AN OVAL PLASTIC COVER NEAR WHERE THE TAIL LIGHT IS. REACH IN AND FEEL FOR A KNOB (FEELS LIKE AN OUTDOOR SPIGOT KNOB). TURN IT UNTIL IT COMES OFF. REMOVE ENTIRE TAIL LIGHT CASING. YOU'LL BE ABLE TO COMPLETELY REMOVE THE HOUSING BY PUSHING FROM INSIDE OUT. DISCONNECT THE WIRE. CHANGE BULB, REVERSE PROCEDURE.
GOOD LUCK.
