Look inside the trunk for the back side of the light module housing. Unscrew the large black knob. Before unscrewing it all the way push on the knob to pop out the light module housing from the outside fender, or place your fingers under the lip and gently pull on the housing once the knob is removed. Once pulled out of the housing the bulb sockets will be visible outside of the trunk. replace the l;amps and reverse the procedure to put the light module back into the socket. Screw back on the black knob.

The front lights are similar but have tension springs instead of knobs.

How to change bulbs in my 2005 beetle vw


The headlight unit is held in place by a lever located behind each unit in the engine compartment. Some earlier units also had a locking clip. Moving the lever down releases the complete unit that can then be withdrawn out the front of the fender. Note: Road grit and general accumulations of dirt may make this less than smooth. After removing the whole unit the headlamp bulb is accessible by removing the cover at the rear of the unit and removing the bulb. Replace with new halogen bulb - do not touch the glass with bare hands as the oils on your fingers will cause hot spots and cause the bulb to fail. Replacement is the opposite of removal although you may want to clean out the fender opening before replacing the light unit. Lock in place using the locking lever.

Headlamp replacement 1999 vw 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.
