I have a 2006 tdi vw beetle and am trying to change out the passenger side headlight. i have done it before but it seems like something is catching it. i have already unlocked it and removed the metal...


There is a sliver colored latch that barely can be seen on the bottom, towards the back. Push it down with a long screwdriver or whatever you can reach it with while the headlight assembly is pulled forward. It is spring loaded, so if and when you push the headlight assembly back in you will hear it lock again. Then you can turn the front lock back in place.

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 i get at the alternator on my vw beetle 1998


We have a 2000 Beetle. You have to remove 4 allan head bolts and remove the throttle body . Remove it from the large hose. This allows you to get to the alternator . Undo 3 bolts on the belt tensioner and remove that. Undo the electrical connections on the alternator. Undo 2 bolts holding the alternator on to the bracket and pry out. Here's where I just about had a meltdown, the alternator won't fit out past the body work. However remove the passenger side headlight. There is a plastic lever you slide all the way up and slide the headlight out. Remove the 3 torx head screws to remove the headlight cup and the alternator will come out no problem through the headlight hole.

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.

Replacing 2006 VW Beetle headlight How do you do


This is based on my 2001 Beetle, so hopefully they didn't make it any more complicated by the 2006 model year.

Open the hood and look at the inside of the headlight housing. Going from the back of the housing toward the front, there's a metal clip, then a plastic lever, then a little rectangular button with dots on it. These are all right next to each other. Pop off the metal clip, press down on the little rectangular button, then pull up on the plastic lever. It's kind of like a childproof pill bottle cap, I guess. Once you've done all those maneuvers, the headlight housing should slide out the front. Then you can unplug the wires and replace the whole unit, or open up the unit and replace just the bulb.

Since you're working on the driver's side, you'll also have the added joy of trying to work around the battery compartment. You may have to take the battery cover off to get enough room.

That happened to me. I tried to re-insert the window into the track but it was impossible. The dealer ordered some clips and I think I paid about $50 to have it fixed.
