Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
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.

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.

I used this link to replace my two headlights. The passenger side is easier than the drivers side. :) Here's a link to the blog I used, there are step by step instructions and pictures.

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..
