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.

I need to know the size tool to use to remove the caliper bolts on the back brakes on a 2002 VW Jetta wagon TDI - standard star sizes are not working.


They are Torx heads on the calibers, the parts store sells them in a 4-pack for German cars. You will need a special tool to retract the caliper pistons also.

The brake lights (all 3) on my VW Sharan do not work although there is an intermittent flashing. At the same time the Glo Plug light is flashing. what is the cure?


There is a recall on the brake light switch. VW should replace it for free.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defective brake lights on Golf, GTI, Jetta, New Beetle and R32 are a potential safety hazard and should be replaced. February 26, 2007 - NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Around 800,000 Volkswagen vehicles have been recalled Monday because of faulty brake lights, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
The 790,000 vehicles include Jettas, New Beetles, Golfs, GTIs and R32s...all in the United States.
The specific years and models affected are:
  • 1999-2005 Jetta sedans
  • 2001-2005 Jetta wagons
  • 1998-2007 New Beetle
  • 2003-2007 New Beetle Convertibles
  • 1999-2006 Golfs and GTIs
  • 2004 R32
The malfunctioning brake lights and brake light switches could fail to come on or remain stuck on.
This recall expands on one announced by Europe's No. 1 carmaker last year, when 362,000 Jettas and New Beetles were recalled due to the same defective part.
Volkswagen said that dealers will immediately be prepared to accept service appointments to perform the repair at no charge, but the notification process isn't scheduled to begin until April.
NHTSA did not say if any injuries had been reported linked to the defective brake lights.

Haven a hard time changing my low beam for my 2004 tdi vw jetta


This should not be very difficult. Remove the back cover of the light. Twist the old bulb and pull out. Remove plug. plug new one in and twist into place. Replace cover.

The battery side is a very tight squeeze, you may need to remove the battery. But, I was able to do it by just taking off the battery cover.
