How do you change driver side headlight bulb

The headlight assembly must be removed from the vehicle in order to gain access to the bulb fixture. Open the hood and look at the headlight from the inside - you'll see a couple of plastic wingnuts that hold the assembly in. Remove wingnuts and slide assembly out. Turn plastic retainer ring on bulb to release bulb, remove and replace. Reverse procedure. Make sure you align bulb correctly for retainer to lock down or else bulb may fall out while driving.
Good luck!!

X reg 2000 beetle - lambda probe is failing and being replaced on a yearly basis - also endine warning light and ESP light permanently on but car working ok. Also front headlight bulb keeps blowing - vw...

Something is wrong,are they using vw parts, the head light has to have a bad ground or short somewhere to keep blowing bulbs or water is entering lens,the rest of the light need to be diagnosed,maybe you need to take to dealer or another dealer, good luck.

How do you change the headlights in a 2008 beetle?

The headlight bulb is a major pain in the **** to replace. The average bug owner could not replace it themselves without damaging things. You have to remove the entire headlight assembly and disassemble it on the bench. And a lot of times you break the bucket going back in.

The dealer charges almost $100 bucks to replace the bulb.
If your determined to try go here and get the info.
