HI,

There are 2 bent prongs that hold the light bulb in. The tooth faces down, and the prongs are positioned parallel to each other.

Leave the harness connected as you will use this to wedge it out.

With a hook tool (Walmart in tool section $8) position it over one of the prongs. With the other hand, reach in and pull on the harness down towards the tooth while pushing in on the prong. Once you get that side to slide forward a bit, the other will release.

Be careful not to touch the bulb if you plant to replace or reuse. They are not something you can buy OTC. These bulbs are made in Germany & they are made to be this color. Aftermarket lights have a yellow tint compared to these. They are comparable to the White Star $20 each.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do i change rear directional light bulb on a 2006 ford explorer ?


lift the tailgate

unscrew the 2 hex screws with a socket wrench.

the entire back light fixture will now be able to be poped out. Pull slowly and firm on the fixture it will pop free.

Behind the fixture you will see the wires leading to your light bulb turn a quarter turn to loosen and remove the socket. change the bulb and repeat the steps backwards to replace the light.

2004 vw passat - one headlight out but bulb is


The filament in every bulb acts like a fuse. Also the fuse block may have fuses for your lights. Some cars do and some do not. If the fuses are good, more than likely a short in the wiring could be the problem. The switch is good if one light comes on you know

Trying to remove the lightbulb from a passat 2006 the front light (headlights)


Just take off the back cover of the light housing, unplug the bulb, undo any retaining clips (VW often uses a swing-latch style metal retainer), and grab the base of the bulb. Twist it to unlock, and it should come right out.

There is no fuse for the third brake light that I know of, it is wired into the main brake light wiring on most cars anyway. Probably the bulb is blown.

How do I replace the front right turn signal on a 1999 VW Passat?


VW passat for model year 2001.5 – 2003, except HIDs). These were done on a 2001.5 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T. seem to be too wide for the wiring connector. Avoid touching the glass of the halogen bulb with bare hands. For easy access to the headlight’s bulbs, the cover shown above needs to be pulled out. As a reference, the arrows show what holds each other together. This will be helpful when placing this cover back. WARNING: Avoid touching the glass of the halogen bulb with bare hands. Use alcohol to clean off any contaminants. Read this book for VW service and repair manual complement. http://www.ebooksquad.com/2007/10/10/replacing-headlight-bulbs-for-the-vw-passat.html

Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf


There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.
