Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight.  Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet.  Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down.  Next disconnect battery cables.  Hold those out of the way.  pull battery forward and up.  Install in reverse order.  Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules.  Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset.  This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom.  The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.

Very difficult. You have to open the inside access door on the drivers side, remove the amp and wheel well cover, pinch the tabs and the bulb cluster will release. The taillight assembly is bolted from inside of the car, so it can't be done outside.

Battery removal

it is on the front of the battery (toward the headlight) down at the bottom - you will need a rachet (15 mm i think) with an extension. you can push a little against the plastic cover that houses the back of the headlight and expose the bolt or you can take out the 2 black screws on the plastic headlamp cover and slide it out (takes about 45 seconds)
