Open the hood and look down beside the battery youll see a black lever.Pull the lever up it may take some patience but it will release,the headlight assembly will slide out of the front of the vehicle.Once you take the assembly out on the backside youll see a metal clip holding the bulb in place.Just depress the clip and it will release,Simply just reverse the procedure for installation.

2006 Volkswagon Beetle, drivers side headlight, high beam not working


Instructions
    • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.
    • 2Turn off the headlight switch and then remove the keys from the ignition.
    • 3
    • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
    • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
    • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
    • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.
    • 7Open the package of the new H1 bulb replacement without touching the glass portion of the bulb with your bare skin. Oils in human skin will damage the bulb. Handle it only by the metal base of the bulb insert.
    • 8Insert the new bulb in the appropriate headlight-assembly cavity and reattach the bulb retaining clip to lock the bulb in place.
    • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.
    • 10Push the headlight assembly into its cavity, but before locking it in place, check the lights by turning on the headlight switch.

Need to replace the bulb for low beam on drivers side in a 2005 VW Beetle Convertible


Yours probably doesn't have the locking latch but everything else is the same. These guys do a great job explaining how to do it. The video is a little drawn out but keep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALcVKiHmn9Q&feature=youtube_gdata_player

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.

Finding the fuse box on a 1998 vw bug


It should be visible with the drivers door open. Look on the side of the dash by the door jam. Prob need a screwdriver to get it pried open. If I am wrong try the passenger side since they are sold overseas as a left hand drive car.
