The cover/lens is not designed to come off. You can try putting the entire light assembly in an oven on low heat for a few minutes, that may soften the adhesive enough to allow the lens to be pried off. There are kits available from auto parts stores to restore the lens.

Check with your local auto parts store or look in your owner's manual to find the proper model number of the replacement tail light globe.
Turn the two latches counterclockwise to open them so the cover may be removed. In most cases you can turn the latches with your fingers; in some cases you may need a coin or a slot screwdriver to turn them. Remove the cover.
Press the tabs that allow you to remove the tray that holds the tail light globes. There are four tabs on most VW models. Each tab must be depressed to release the tray. Pull the tray out a few inches, as far as the wiring allows.
Press down slightly on the burned-out globe and turn it counterclockwise with your thumb and fingers. It should release easily and then pull straight out. Push the replacement bulb in and turn it clockwise until it locks in place.
Snap the tail light tray back in place. The tray should simply push back into place and the four tabs should "snap" into their locked position. Replace the door cover and turn the door locks clockwise. Test your bulb to see that it is working.
