If you ever have to change any of bulbs that are on the deck lid you will need to remove the covering on the inside of the deck lid, remove the assembly and change the bulb.
In the back of the low bulb unit, is a round cover, turn it to remove it, then you have access to the bulbs, you´ll need patience large and thin fingers. I suggest you to buy the bulb first and a good quality one, because you´ll need to work on this with a cold engine.

the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flat head
screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the

the wing nuts (there are two per side) counterclockwise to remove them.
Peel the carpet layer back to access the rear signal lamp

The taill light bulbs are replaced from inside the trunk. You'll need to pull the carpet away from the area of the tail light. You'll see the wing nuts holding it in place. Remove those nuts and the unit will pop out allowing you replace the bulb. Whole job should take 5-10 minutes.
It's been a while, you go through the glass.. the big glass.. grab it lightly
slide it up adn then over left.. the bottom glass.. slide it left and the up and right at the same time.. its a little touchy so be patient.. now i cant remember but i think you have to removed the motor.. then you can access the bulb behind it.. best of luck!!
Raise hood and remove two hex bolts holding light assembly. You will see three round rubber covers, approximately 4" in diameter. Unscrew the one to the far left, giving access to the signal light bulb. The bulb pulls straight out. Insert new bulb, replace rubber cover, attacht light assembly back to vehicle with hex bolts, close hood, and pat yourself on the back for job well done.
You cannot change the bulb - the indicator is a sealed unit - mine failed because water got into a crack. VW will sell you the unit - you need to dismantle the wing mirror to fit it - took me about 20 mins. Cost of the unit was about £17
