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!

I replaced my drivers side headlight housing because it was pretty much destroyed. Now I have the new housing in, and my head light still does not work. Any idea if it could be a fuse or something else? If...


I would think both sides run on the same fuse, thus a bad fuse would disable both sides. You have replaced the housing but did you replace the socket for the light? Also did you make sure you have a good ground connection for the socket. Many one side only headlight problems relate to a missing or bad ground connection. My next step would be to get a new socket, and make sure the ground side of the socket is well grounded.

I have a few beetle ( vw and audi too) customers who are regulars for headlamps.
I first had this problem on my 96 audi a4 and I came up with a simple solution
If you have fog lamps leave them on all the time. my headlamp failures went way down when I did that.

Try this if you have fog lamps, my customers did not have fog lamps so they could not try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

I have read the instructions for changing the drivers side h/l on my 2003 VW New Beetle TDI. I have released the spring and have tried to gently pry the h/l loose. With the battery and air filter there is...


On my 2003 TDI New Beetle the head lights are a joke. There is a locking lever to pull in and up that pushes the head light assembly out for servicing. It would not move for me and I broke it off. Even the one on the passenger side would not work and I broke that one too. The up side to this is that once broken the head light assembly pulls out front with medium effort and can be serviced easily. The down side is a frontal collision will pop both lights out. By the way, to get the light assemblies reinstalled is hard. They have to side in perfectly to seal against water. If you are going to try, play with the passenger side first. Easier to see.

I need to change my passenger side headlight bulb on my 2002 beetle. Can anyone please send me a diagram on how to do this.


WHAT TO DO IS OPEN THE HOOD OF YOUR BEETLE AND WILL BEABLE TO SEE THE HEAD LIGHT. THERE IS A LEAVER THAT PUSHES DOWN TO EJECT THE HEAD LIGHT OUT OF THE FENDER. YES IT COMES ALL THE OUT OF THE CAR. YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE A SCREW DRIVER TO PUSH THE LOCK DEVICE DOWN TO PUSH LEAVER DOWN.ONCE YOU GET THE HEAD LIGHT OUT TAKE THE BACK OFF OF IT AND REPLACE THE BULBS. WHEN YOU PUT THE HEAD LIGHT BACK IN THERE ARE 3 GUIDES TO PUT THE HEAD BACK IN TO LOCK IT BACK IN PLACE. ONCE YOU HAVE IT IN THE GUIDES US THE LEAVER TO PULL THE HEAD LIGHT BACK INTO THE FENDER.
