SOURCE: headlight installation 2006 Beetle TDI

For the 2006 Beetles
FYI - The bulb for the 2006 is DIFFERENT than the 98-05 beetles
GE - H7 55w
I will start with the tools I used:
(Locking mechanism)
1/4” drive ratchet with a 10” extension and a 5mm socket.
(secondary locking mechanism)
wooden paint stir stick (freebie from your local hardware or paint store) or some long thin stick like a wooden dowel.
Passenger’s Side
This is the easiest of the two as there is not as much in your way of both locking mechanisms. If you shine a light towards the front of the bottom of the light housing inside the engine compartment you will see a small silver pin with a 5mm head that has instructions on how to lock/unlock the primary locking mechanism printed on the black plastic above the pin. Using your 5mm socket and long extension. turn the pin ONLY 1/2 a turn and take care as the pin should turn VERY EASILY. Note that the direction to turn this pin is opposite for the passenger and driver's sides. Now the light housing should be able to move slightly out of it’s seat, but it will not come more than about 1” out of the front of the car. You may have to push on the back of the light housing, as VW puts some sticky sealer around the edge of the light housing in the front. A secondary locking mechanism still holds it in place. If you look a little further back, about 3” - 4”, from the primary locking pin; behind a wrapped wire, a/c line, and the power steering resevoir; you will see a horizontal silver lever, about 3” - 4” in length, pointing towards the front of the car. Using your wooden stick, simply hold this lever down about 1” to 2” and pull out the light housing at the same time. The entire housing should freely and easily come completely out of the front of the car. Take care removing it as there are no wires connected to it and it will fall to the floor if you are not holding on to it. Just open the back of the housing and replace the bulb that is out.
Driver’s Side
This is the most difficult one. The battery location is your enemy. In front of the battery, if you look with a flashlight, you will see the primary locking mechanism. It is the only silver looking pin there with a 5mm head. It looks like the headlamp adjusters on other cars. There are instructions printed on the black plastic above it. You should ONLY turn this 1/2 a turn, and you will NOT need to put much effort into turning it as it should turn very easily. You are not done yet. The entire headlamp assembly should be able to pull out of the fender about 1” now, then it will stop as if something else is holding it. You may have to push on the back of the light housing, as VW puts some sticky sealer around the edge of the light housing in the front. There is a secondary locking mechanism that is just a simple metal lever. If you look on the back of the battery, between the air filter housing and the battery, you should see the end of the small shiny silver lever. Using your wooden stick, simply hold this lever down about 1” to 2” and pull out the light housing at the same time. The entire housing should freely and easily come completely out of the front of the car. Take care removing it as there are no wires connected to it and it will fall to the floor if you are not holding on to it. Just open the back of the housing and replace the bulb that is out.

Show how to replace power outlet fuse for 2006 Toyota Camry


Interior Fuse Box Location 2002 2006 Toyota Camry 2006 Toyota Camry LE 2...

The video above shows how to replace blown fuses in the interior fuse box of your 2006 Toyota Camry in addition to the fuse panel diagram location. Electrical components such as your map light, radio, heated seats, high beams, power windows all have fuses and if they suddenly stop working, chances are you have a fuse that has blown out. If your Camry is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change. Some Toyotas have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2006 Camry is located. If your Camry has many options like a sunroof, navigation, heated seats, etc, the more fuses it has. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question.
If you need to replace a blown fuse in your Camry, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic. They should be able to figure out if the component needs to be replaced or if there is a short or some other problem with your Camry.

Good Luck

Replace parking light on 2006 beetle


Rear parking lamp assembly (2006 New Beetle) is held in the bumper with a spring clip. I removed the assembly using a flat screwdriver to very gently pry out of the bumper. The clip is on the outboard side of the assembly, so you must pry from the outboard side using great caution to not mar or scratch the paint. The inboard side "hooks" to the bumper and slides outward once the clip clears the bumper on the other end. The bulb and socket can be removed by pulling outward from the assembly.
