How do I replace my passenger side headlight bulb on a 1997 VW Passat?

    It was under the hood. The key was understanding that once you unlatched the plastic weather shield the shield actually comes off and is not a fixed hindge. This then gives you access to the bulb without having to remove the air filter cover and the horn.



    Although light in detail, thanks for your response.

What would cause my passenger headlight on my 2006 VW Passat to turn pink colored?


Probably moisture entered headlight compartment and caused bulb to flash and burn out.Replace bulb without touching with your hands, use gloves or a clean cloth to handle bulb.

Changing headlight on 2006 VW passat


Hello, to change the headlight on your passat, follow this steps:


1. Pull off the air intake cover, and remove the intake mounting bolt and set the intake hose aside,(passenger side only).


2. Twist off the protective cover from the back of the headlight assembly. Press the tab to pull off the electrical connector.

3. Turn the bulb socket counter clockwise to unlatch, and then slip it away from the assembly.

4. Turn the old bulb counter clockwise to release from the socket .Install the new bulb by turning it clockwise. Hold the plastic base of the new bulb when installing . Touching the glass can cause it to prematurely fail.

5. Insert the module and turn it clockwise to lock it in the assembly. Reattach the electrical connector and twist the protective rubber cover unto the back of the assembly .

6. Reattach the intake hose (passenger side only) and tighten the bolt. Snap the plastic intake cover back on.

Thanks

2004 vw passat - one headlight out but bulb is


The filament in every bulb acts like a fuse. Also the fuse block may have fuses for your lights. Some cars do and some do not. If the fuses are good, more than likely a short in the wiring could be the problem. The switch is good if one light comes on you know

Try inspecting the wires, socket, and bulb for defects. Try a wiggle test on the wires to that lamp. See if there is any effect. If nothing inspect the socket for hot spots and/or corrosion.

turn on your low beams and look at the passenger side. as a general rule the low beam lights are the ones on the far side of the headlight bucket, not on the inside
