Question about 2006 Volkswagen New Beetle
Hold on a sec!! If this is a new bug? Open the hood. Look to the left or right in the engine compartment. Find the long large tube that the headlight assembly slides into from the fender. There is a plastic lever on this tube. Move it to the other position from were it is now. Now go out on the fender and pull the headlight out of the tube. I used my finger nails to get it started. You may have to use a small screwdriver to get it started. Dont scratch the paint. Replace the bulb. slide it back into the tube and move that lever back to the locked position.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 5
CAUTION Most headlight retaining rings and trim bezels have very sharp edges. Wear gloves. Never pry or push on a headlamp; it can shatter suddenly.

A good kitchen or household magnet placed on the shank of the screwdriver will provide enough grip to hold the screw during removal.

1. Make sure you remove the part that surrounds the housing first. This can be a metal trim or an exposed plastic. You should do this so you can reach through the adjusting screws and retaining ring in the headlights.
2. Make sure you also have the right tool for the removal of the headlight's four retaining ring screws. The screws may get corroded most of the time so they can easily be stripped. You should use penetrating oil when going through this process. Allow parts to soak in the oil solution for some time and make sure you're careful enough not to move the headlight aiming screws.
3. After removing the rings, you can work freely on your headlamps. This means that you can start replacing them. But before you do that, make sure that you have unplugged the headlamp's wiring connector which can be found on its back.
4. Now you can work on plugging the connector into your new Ford headlamps. Place the lights carefully on the base. Don't be too worried doing this process as lugs found on the headlight will help in its proper positioning. If you think, something is wrong with the way it fits, you can check on how you positioned the headlights.
5. After installation, you may now test if your Ford headlights are working. If any problem seems to show, it means that something is wrong with your wiring connector and not with your headlight.
6. To fasten the new headlights, the retaining rings should be replaced. Make sure that the adjusting screws' settings are not disturbed. In line with this, make sure you've repositioned all the parts that you removed before you started replacing your Ford headlights.
