Remove the cover from the inside of your trunk.Use a flat screwdriver to pop it out. There is a notch on one side so you can slip the flat head screwdriver in to pop it out.When you take that part off, there will be a black knob that needs to be unscrewed totally to release the back light casing. Along the rear fenders where the lights are, there are two gaps. The inside gap (nearest hatch back door), is a release tab/clip on the light inside between the gaps.Insert a butter knife or something slim and pull out the casing (it takes a little force to pull it out). After you pull out the casing, you'll find two light bulb holders, (one is for the turn signal, and the other is for your brake light).Turn the brake light holder counter clockwise and remove then swap out the bulb and reverse the procedure to re assemble.

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

2003 VW BEETLE LEFT BRAKE LIGHT DOES NOT WORK WHEN LIGHTS ARE ON, TAIL LIGHT AND BRAKE LIGHT GOES OUT WHEN BRAKE APPLIED


These cars were very well known to have bad grounds at the tail lamps. I would check the grounds to be sure they are still viable and check the wires to the tail lamps to be sure they haven't corroded.

Need to change a tail light bulb left sideon a 2000 vw bettle


Unscrew the knob behined the light in the Boot / Trunk and the use a small screwdriver on the OUTSIDE of the light on the right handside as you look at the light in the middle on the outside. You will feel a little spring clip and as you push gently the light will pullout forward.

My tail lights in my 2002 VW Beetle keep going out. I've tried bulbs from Walmart, and VW OEM parts, and still have the same problem. Do I need to replace the connectors or the wiring???


The brake light switch has been recalled on New Beetles. I've replaced mine twice on my 2001. I was reimbursed by VW both times. I just had my regular mechanic fix it and turned in the paperwork. You can take it to the dealer and they should cover it, but I hate going to dealers because they always try to say something else is wrong with the car.

How do I replace right tail light bulb on VW Beetle?


The entire tail light assembly pulls out from the fender well. You can access the socket for the tail light on the inside of the trunk, but in order to change the bulbs you will need to pull the tail light assembly out from the socket. Check inside to see if there are any retaining straps, otherwise use your fingers to get under the outer edge of the tail light assembly and gentlu pull it out. Don't pull too far because the wires will still be connected between the tail light assembly and the socket. The bulbs are then easily accessible and can be changed. Reverse the procedure to re-install.
