You pull on the release hook of the hood from under the car using a long piece of stiff wire.

    There is a tab that needs to be pushed in very gently by this hook . This is all plastic and breaks with to much pushing forces on the tab. Push the tab in while pulling on the HOOK with you finger and **** pushing on the back of headlight houseing

Remove the air cleaner assembly after that push the tab on the headlight this releases the headlight assembly and now just pull the whole headlight assembly out from the outside. Once you have the assembly out now find the tabs on the headlight itself push on these tabs and the bulb will come out of it.

How do I change the headlight on a 1998 vw Beetle?


Lift the hood and if equipped remove plastic engine cover. On each headlight you will see plastic retaining latches. releasing these latches will allow the whole headlight assembly to slide out. Its a canister type assembly. You can then access teh bulbs to replace the lights. it reassembles teh same way

How do you change the low beam bulb on a 2001 vw beetle?


It's easy, under the hood on the headlight casing is a lever like thing, (careful it is fragile) pull the lever up or down (can't remember). There is a notch under the lever that needs to be pushed in to 'release' the lever. Push the entire headlight casing out toward the front of the car. (The casing will hang over your bumper) Pull out the headlight and plug the new one in. Push the casing back in and lock the casing in with the lever. One note, there is some really sticky adhesive holding the light in, so you may have to push/pull hard to get it to slide out. I find that using WD40 on the tracks helps it to slide easier. You will have to use a screwdriver (or the like) covered by a rag to pry the light out.

The 2003 VW headlight assembly has a twinkie (e.g. very poorly designed) release lever that breaks when one attempts to release the assembly to replace a bulb. QUESTION: what do you use to get the whole...


most headlight assemblys use 2 or 3 screws as well as your ''twinkie''.if a piece of the lock lever is still in there,remove the screws & be prepared to wiggle it some.cursing at it couldn't hurt.

Driverside headlight out.


Ok a little complex. You have to open the hood. Look near the battery on the headlight assembly tou'll see a clip and a lever. You have to depress the clip and move the lever completely down. Lots of times seized. Use as much lube to release the slider. Once you get it low enough I use a suction cup on the headlamp and pull it out while moving the lever down. Once they line up inside you can pull out the assembly to change the bulb. Sometimes we have to replace the slider guide in the head lamp retainer when they break. Sometimes not an easy fix.
