The headlight is actually a bulb inserted into a light module. You can remove the plastic light module by releasing the tension spring on the rear of the headliht housing inside your hood. Once the tension spring is released pull the plastic light module from the fender socket by gently pulling on the edges of the headlight. The module should pull out with some minor difficulty. Remove the bad bulb from the rear of the plastic bubble, and replace it with a new halogen bulb. Replace the module into the fender socket and reclip the tension spring(s). Not all that difficult of a job once you know how its accomplished.

SOURCE: How to replace a headlamp on 2005 VW Beetle

I had this same problem, I used this blog link to replace the bulb in both of my headlights. I'll be honest here and tell you the passenger side is much easier than the drivers side. I'd recomend two of you be there for the first one, after that it's a one person job.

SOURCE: 1999 Beetle: cabin air filter 1999 beetle replace...

You will need to slide the center hump on dash directly above radio and vents backwards towards the widshield. You will notice a crease where the actual part containing vents meets the center hump that is just one piece itself. It should open up giving you access to the right side (passenger side) dash panel that has 5 or 6 screws (they are hex) that need to be removed. You will find the Cabin air filter under this panel after removing screws. it pulls out easily and the new one just sits back in place. Replace the screws and then align and slide the center hump back towards the back of car to lock into place. Relatively easy thing to do..

Need to replace driver's side headlight on a 2008 vw beetle


This is not a fun job. The headlight retention system sometimes becomes locked up due to dust and grime on the mechanism. Even if things are clean, it is VERY difficult. Take my word for it, a VW dealer is the best bet for you. The headlamp mounting system on the Beetle is one of the stupidest setups I've came across in 45 years of fixing VW's. And you can bet VW designed it to force you to go to the dealer.

I have a few beetle ( vw and audi too) customers who are regulars for headlamps.
I first had this problem on my 96 audi a4 and I came up with a simple solution
If you have fog lamps leave them on all the time. my headlamp failures went way down when I did that.

Try this if you have fog lamps, my customers did not have fog lamps so they could not try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

To change headlithgth bulb of a 1999 vw beetle


There are two spring clips located under the hood around each headlamp housing. Open both clips and extract the headlamp housing from the front of the car by pulling the plastic assembly by grabing the edges by the black rubber seal. The entire headlamp housing will pull out from the front bumper enough to allow you to change the bulbs. Repeat procedure and clip the spring clamps back in place.

How do you change a 2004 VW Beetle Drivers side headlight


In the engine compartment, behind the headlamp, there is a retaining ring with a lever and a locking tab. You may need to remove the battery cover to see it. Push down the tab and pull the lever to "spin" the ring. This will slightly push out the headlamp. Replace the bulb and place back in. Then "spin" the retaining ring the other way until the tab locks again. ALL DONE!

beetle's have very difficult headlamps to replace ..from inside engine compartment there is a "band" that goes around the headlight assembly that has to be released and they commonly break ..i would recomend not trying it yourself and taking it to a dealership so when and if it breaks a new band will be available or the car will not be able to remount the headlight assembly sorry

Driverside headlight out.


Ok a little complex. You have to open the hood. Look near the battery on the headlight assembly tou'll see a clip and a lever. You have to depress the clip and move the lever completely down. Lots of times seized. Use as much lube to release the slider. Once you get it low enough I use a suction cup on the headlamp and pull it out while moving the lever down. Once they line up inside you can pull out the assembly to change the bulb. Sometimes we have to replace the slider guide in the head lamp retainer when they break. Sometimes not an easy fix.
