I replaced my globes not so long back.
The metal clip you simply push down. Replacing the left light is challenging as the air intake is in the way but its not impossible. After removing the clip there is a plastic cap. Remove it.
Then remove the cable that feeds power. You should be able to see the rear of the 'globe'. There is another spring loaded metal clip holding the 'globe' in place. Push the two ends of the clip together to remove this clip. The globe should be free now. Remeber the globe go in a specific way, so take note. I bought to Halogen globes for my Audi as these immitted a stronger beam. Please, whatever you do DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW GLOBES GLASS. The natural oil from your fingers will impact the lifespan of these and you'll have to replace these again. Remember to also reallign the beams.

How do you change the head light?


Unplug the harness that goes to the bulb.
Pull off the rubber sealer.
There's a wire clip that goes along the bottom side of the bulb to hold it in place. Push that clip in (towards the front of the car) and down to release it.
Pull out the old bulb.
Insert the new bulb the same way: with the missing electrical pin at the bottom.
Twist it back and forth to make sure it locks into place.
Replace the clip by pushing in and up until it clicks into place.
Replace the rubber sealer. Push around the entire edge until it snaps into place.
Replace the wire harness.

I need to change the headlight bulb


Pull the connector plug off. Remove the rubber dust cover. You will see a wire clip that holds the bulb in place. Push on the clip, slide it to the right of the vehicle and release. The bulb can now be removed. When replacing the new bulb do not touch the glass. Lift the clip, insert the bulb into the headlight, refit the clip. Replacing the dust cover can be a pain. Hook it in place on one side, with thumb and forfinger grip the other side and twist it as if to turn it inside out, press it against the rear of the headlight and release. Reconnect the wiring connector.

How to replace passenger side brake light bulb


The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2003 New Beetle TDI is relatively simple.

To remove the lens and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lens holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lens.

To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off. After this is done you release the lens by using something flat like screwdriver to pry and release the clip that holds the lens in place. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lens, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place.

Gently and carefully insert the flathead screwdriver directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lens. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets counter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise.

To reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure. When re-installing take care to clock the lens where the metal clip and the lens protrusions end up in the same position as before. Note: you may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the screwdriver when reinstalling!

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

Replacing headlight bulb ford focus


Most of this solution for changing a headlamp on a ford focus sedan is taken from solution 2's writeup, accept with a few more details that should help changing the bulb assembly for the novice. Pop the hood. At the front of the car, look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a plastic cover on the back. On some models, you need to unscrew the plastic cap; on others, it just pops or screws off. Remove the plastic cover and then take note of the orientation of the three prong connector on the back of the bulb assembly. This is important because the replacement bulb assembly is going to have to be positioned in the same manner. By noting the orientation before taking out the old assembly, it will be easier to orient the replacement bulb assembly after removal.
There is a small retaining clip that surrounds and holds the bulb in place. Removing the clip can be tricky. On my 2003 Ford Focus sedan, there is a special place to push and release the clip that is above the bulb - perhaps further above than you might think. Push the release clip and it will release the retaining clip from the bulb assembly. Gently pull the retaining clip down and out of the way of the bulb assembly. Pull the original bulb straight out. Remove the three prong connector from the bulb assembly. Connect the three prong connector to the replacement bulb and then orient the three prong connector as the original and push bulb assembly straight back into place. Jiggle the assembly slightly to seat it into the correct position in the headlamp housing and replace the retaining clip to hold the bulb in place. Replace the plastic cover on the back of the headlamp and replacement is complete.
No tools. 10 minutes.

How to take the light out on a toyota corolla front headlight


If you have the same set-up as a lot of newer cars then it is not as hard as it may seem. This is an older post but someone else may find the information and be able to use it. When you open the hood on the inside there should be an electrical connection going to the headlights. Where that goes in to the headlight compartment there should be a rubber covering. Remove this rubber covering and disconnect the electrical connection. Once the cover and connection are out of the way you should be able to have access to the bulb. On a lot of newer cars, they have a contraption to hold the bulb in place the looks like a paper clip that has been bent in a lot of odd angles. If this is the system that you have it is easy from this point. At the bottom there is a slot that holds the paper clip (that's what I call it) in place and keeps pressure on the bulb to hold it in place. Apply pressure near the bottom and slide it to get it to release from the slot. At that point it simply swings up and the bulb is free to come out. Put the new bulb back in. Swing the paper clip thing back down and place the bottom end of it back in the slot. Replace the rubber covering making sure the prongs are all sticking out and then replace the electrical connection. Do the other side, it is always best to do headlights in pairs

Nothing special at all - just remove the back cover on the headlamp and you'll see inside that the bulbs are pinned in place with hinged metal wire clips. Release the clips and the bulbs should come right out.

Replace tail light bulb


The process for changing the tail light bulbs for a 2002 New Beetle in my case a TDI is relatively simple. To remove the lense and gain access to the bulbs you first need to release the lense holder from inside the trunk by completely unscrewing the large plastic wing nut that is under a round plastic panel that's located almost directly behind the rear brake light lense. To gain access to the plastic wing nut remove the round panel by gently prying it off. After this is done you release the lense by using something flat like a dinner table knife to pry and release the clip that holds the lense in place. Locating the clip: The rear fender has two seams that end at the light lense, the inboard seam (the one closest to the hatch)is where you want to insert the table knife to pry the metal clip that holds the lens in place. Gently and carefully insert the knife blade directly at the seam and pry upward to release the lense. Once the clip releases pull the lens the rest of the way and remove the bulbs by turning the bulb holder sockets couter-clockwise. After this is done remove bulbs by slightly pushing down on the bulb and turning it counter-clockwise. The reinstall is reverse of the removal the procedure.When re-installing take care to clock the lense where the metal clip and the lense protrusions end up in the same position as before. Note: you may need to assist sliding the lens retaining clip in with the knife when reinstalling! Good luck
