There's a spring clip inside the hood compartment that holds the headlamp assemby in position. Release the spring clamp, grab around the edges of the headlamp where it meets the front fender and pull the headlamp assembly out of it's socket. Replace the bulb from the back of the headlamp assembly and reposition the headlamp assembly back into the socket. Once properly position replace tension of the spring clamps inside the hood.

My vw 2002 beetle headlight bulb has been replaced and still wont work?


I believe vw uses 4 fuses 2 high beam, 2 low beam, see if high beams work,check for a blown fuse. Another possibility is a corroded wiring harness that plugs in behind the headlight. Unplug and replug the headlight socket a couple times to clean corrosion.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?


Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way

Problem with front headlights always going out. It seems like I replace headlight bulbs every 6 mos. on 2002 VW New Beetle.


Check voltage at battery with engine running with a volt meter. Turn all accessories on and lights rev engine up and see if voltage goes above 14.8, if yes voltage regulator in alternator may be your problem.

look under the hood toward the headlight there will be a lever. pull it up (some have a button thing that you push in while you pull up) after you lift the lever, pull the headlight out from the front.disconnect electrical connector. remove black back cover plate remove and install new bulbs( remember not to touch them). replace in reverse order. hardest part is putting it back it. make sure you align the rails and have lots of patience you will get it!

Looking for help in replacing low light bulb in headlight for 2002 volkswagen beetle turbo.


It is a pain in the ****. There is a handle under the hood, behind the headlight that slides to release the whole headlight lens. It sounds easy but the slide is usually got all kinds of dirt and rocks in it and won't slide.
